Silence your phone and don’t check tweets, text, or phone messages until you’re finished studying. Don’t wait until the last minute to study Cramming doesn’t work. You’re much better off spacing six hours of studying over the course of three days than jamming it all into a single, exhausting six-hour study marathon the day before the exam. Review old tests Check on the availability of old tests at the library or from students who previously took the course. Although you can’t assume the items will be identical, you will gain some insight as to the way in which ques- tions are asked and the subject matter of interest to the instructor. Seek tutoring and visit the Writing / Study Center Many colleges have centers that help with written assignments. They also teach skills in note taking, essay writing, exam strategies, and more. And don’t be shy about seeking tutoring. Check with the Center or ask your academic department about tutoring services.
