5 Tips for Studying for Midterm Exams

5 Tips for Studying for Midterm Exams

  1. Turn off the cell phone & avoid all social media in an effort to not get distracted and focus on the material at hand.
  2. Plan weeks ahead & do not cram; organization relieves stress.  Create a manageable schedule; alternate subjects with specific time lengths. Spacing out study sessions improves retention of "facts!"
  3. Organize a study group; very helpful and fun, but have a game plan.
  4. Sleep is vital; focus and retention decrease when tired.
  5. Ask teachers for help; they are available daily, and who better knows the exam?
