The following are some suggestions to help you for the last minutes of preparing for your finals: 1. While you are studying, take notes and write down a summary of the important ideas. Make flash cards of these ideas to study with. Remove the cards that you know and study the ones you don’t know as well. 2. Change your study environment; it helps you to remember better. 3. Instead of memorizing everything, try to understand the concepts well. 4. Make study groups. Watching and listening to other students helps you remember better, and it helps you if you missed any classes. 5. Test yourself by using the review questions at the end of each chapter. Study guides also help you to test yourselves. 6. Make sure you get enough sleep. 7. Make sure to have breakfast or other meals that come before your test. Being hungry causes stress and makes it hard to think and remember. You can take your study materials with you when you go to eat. Make sure to eat lots of protein and avoid sugar. 8. Be aware that anxiety is natural during the exams. Try to relax and think positive. Find family member or student friends to talk with about the things that stress you out about the test. When your family or friends tell you that you will do great, believe them.. 9. During exams, take deep breaths, try to answer the questions you know first and come back to the more dif ficult questions. 10. Don’t forget to celebrate when your exams are over!
