As you all know the semester end on May 15th and you will have the reading day on the 16th and finals will start from there. On the 17th departmental finals will take place and from their other finals will take place from the 18th till the 24th. Here is some advice you should use to get ready for your finals.
The first pice of advice I can give is start STUDYING NOW!!!!! You want to start studying now this way you can study a little bit at a time and it will give you a chance to absorb the information easily. This if you start studying now and study a little bit at a time you can be ready for your finals. Another reason why I suggest that you start studying is now is because it has been proven that cramming for exams does not work. It may seem like you will know the information but, you will not be able to keep the information.
The next pice of information I can give you is if you have a math or science finals go to the math science resource center. The resource center can be your greatest ally since they are very helpful and are willing to help you. They also offer workshops for math 104,108 and most of the science classes, but these will fill up very quickly so you need to sign up fast. Make sure you go there with questions about something that you don’t understand or you have your quizzes and test and they will help you and make sure you understand how and why you got that wrong.
The last piece of advice I can give you and I think this is most important piece of advice I can give you is just to relax. I know your thinking to yourself “what does he mean relax”? Trust me and stick with me here. There is one thing that is going to happen is you’re gonna get frustrated and get mad and all other kind of reactions but ,if you relax it can help. If your get frustrated you will not be able to concentrate and you wont be able to study and if you don’t clam down you’re gonna drive your self insane. If you relax and calm down and take on one final at a time you will be better off trust me here.
This is my advice for you guys take it or leave but, if you don’t take at least one of my tips I think you will just do fine. I wish you all the best of luck with your finals and hey after your done you are free from school for three months or a couple of days if your taking summer classes.
