Best Study Tips for Final Exams
Vijay GarG1/20/2021 9:26:56 PM
Not every studying technique works for every student, so experiment with a few of these important study tips to find out which ones work best for you.
1. Make the Most of Class Time
Attend all class sessions, pay close attention to the lectures, and take notes in a way that makes sense for you. The goal is to be able to understand your notes when you review them later.
"Taking good notes means you pay more attention during class," . "When you prepare for the test, it will be really helpful." And if something does not make sense, raise your hand and ask, or make a note to follow up with your professor or teacher assistant
2. Study with Classmates
In addition to making friends, forming study groups in each of your classes is a valuable-and fun-way to review for tests. Working together helps develop good study habits, increases collaboration on group projects, and boosts confidence. "Find a partner to compare notes with," . "You can work together, study together, help each other, and push each other to be better."
3. Take Advantage of Office Hours
If you are having trouble with a concept or topic, your professors can help. Stop by during their office hours or email questions to your professor to understand the class material better, gain helpful study tips on how to prepare for your exams or write a better essay. You will also create a relationship with your instructor that could lead to a valuable mentorship.
4. Create Flashcards
One of the top study tips for college students includes rewriting important facts, concepts, and definitions on flashcards. Flashcards also let you quiz yourself without the help of others. Digital flashcards and study apps are another way to organize and review the material.
5. Find a Good Study Spot
Some people like the complete silence of a library setting, while others like the stimulation of a busy café. Some students prefer sitting at their desks to study, others like a study spot outside in the sun.
"At home, you'll want to fall asleep or play computer games," "So, go to the library to study." The best study environment for you is the one that feels most productive, so try out a few places to see which works best.
6. Switch It Up
Taking too much time on one subject can make you lose your concentration. One of the most important study tips for college exams is to change topics every 30 minutes or so to prevent learning fatigue. Revisit challenging topics once you have given your brain a break.
7. Read and Review- we forget 70% of what we have learned within 24 hours. Going over new ideas a day after class will help increase retention and comprehension-so make time each evening for a quick review. Break chapters into sections and review the material at the end of each before moving on. Make notes by summarizing the critical aspects of the reading so you can easily review them without having to reread entire chapters. Bookmark difficult sections to revisit later.
8. Stay Organized
Scheduling class meetings, homework, assignments, projects, and study sessions is crucial to staying organized. Use a planner to keep track of deadlines, dates, and times so you do not forget anything important. Check your class syllabus for key dates and plan out the time for a study schedule that works for you.
9. Visualize the Material
Focus on the most important parts of your class notes by condensing the material and underlining or highlighting key words and concepts. Not a fan of traditional written notes? Try reformatting them into charts, diagrams, mind maps, or outlines to create visuals that can help you make sense of complex concepts.
10. Focus on Understanding
Memorizing means finding ways to remember and repeat facts. Understanding goes a little deeper, and means you can apply new knowledge to various scenarios and know how it relates to other concepts. College exams often test understanding, not just memorization.
11. Attend the Review Session
If your professor or teacher assistant is offering a pre-test review session before finals week, make sure to attend. This is where you can learn important information on the format of the exam and what may be covered in the questions, as well as key topics to focus your studies.
12. Stay Focused
Keeping your mind on track can be as simple as taking a break from your phone and your friends. Put on some instrumental music or noise-canceling headphones and put your mobile on airplane mode to help you focus on your studies.
13.Take Breaks
Give your brain and body a chance to refresh so you can approach the material with energy and focus. "for every 30 minutes you study, take a short 10-15-minute break to recharge. Short study sessions are more effective and help you make the most of your study time." So, stand up, stretch your legs, and get some fresh air before getting back to the books.
14. Take Good Care of Yourself
Filling up on junk food to save time is not the smartest strategy for studying. Instead, keep a balanced diet of "brain foods" like fresh fruits and vegetables, balanced with protein and healthy fats to fuel your mind. The same goes for sleep: Plan to get a good night's rest the night before the exam.
15. Pace Yourself
Cramming in all your studying during finals week can lead to burnout and anxiety. Split the material into topics and review in stages to fully absorb information into real understanding (see tip 11). The night before, write out a few key ideas to look over before the exam.
If you take a one-hour class, you need to take two extra hours out of the classroom to study. So, if you're taking 15 hours a week, you need to have 30 hours to study after class."
16. Take the Right Approach
Different types of college exams require different study approaches. Multiple choice means focusing on definitions and concepts. Essay tests require you to exhibit a conceptual understanding of the material. Ask your professor about the format of the exam so you know how to prepare.
17. Learn by Teaching Others
Explaining concepts to a classmate is a great way to make sure you really understand the material yourself-and to help them learn as well. When you find new ways to explain a concept, you are mastering the information by processing it for others.
18. Test Your Knowledge
Once you know the format, try creating a practice exam based on what you think the test might cover. This will help you understand the material on a deeper level, and guide what you should be studying. You can then use your practice exam to quiz yourself and your study group.
19. Reward Yourself
Good study habits are hard work! Treat yourself to breaks and little rewards to keep you going. Healthy snacks, nice walks outside, or even an episode of your favorite TV show are good ways to keep you motivated.
Knowing your own effective study strategies is key to success in your college career, and will help with career projects and presentations after graduation, too. Finding the study tips that work best for you will save you time and energy and earn you the best results.
