End of Semester Study Tips
Nov 20, 2010
We at TriangleCables.com know that a portion of our customer base consists of college students. Since it is getting very near the end of the semester, we wanted to take the time provide a number of study tips that college students can use as they start to prepare for their final examinations.
1) Keep Yourself Healthy: This is an oftentimes overlooked element to preparing for a test. Get plenty of sleep, wash your hands, take Vitamin C, and stay away from things that may make you sick. Just think of how terrible it would be if during your final you had a sinus headache, runny nose, and all kinds of aches and pains. As an additional benefit, if you stay healthy for your final, that means you’re also healthy for your winter break!
2) Know Test Material: Believe it or not, most professors will provide you with this information. Make sure to ask your professor if the final exam is cumulative or if it is simply on the last subject you covered. Is it an essay test or multiple choice? Make sure you know, so that you can study the appropriate material.
3) Organize Your Notes: Take a look at your notes? Did you write down the notes quickly to try and keep pace with the lecture? Are your notes split up between notebook pages and handouts? Take some time to reorganize and rewrite your notes in an easy to read and easy to find fashion. It will serve as a mini-review and you will be doing yourself a favor in the long run.
4) A Dorm is Not a Study Location: Your dorm is a place for you to live. It is where you sleep, watch TV, play video games, hang out with friends, get ready for the day, etc. Why would you also want to study in this place? Get out and get to a place that is quieter and more conducive to studying. Your school’s library will have isolated stations or isolated rooms so that you can study with a group.
Hopefully with these tips you will be able to better prepare for your final examinations. In case your final is a paper or project, don’t forget that TriangleCables.com can provide you with computer cables and HP Inkjet cartridges.
