It’s that time of year again…
Exams are right around the corner here at Illinois. Students are hitting the books, libraries, and coffee shops all around campus. This time of year is a stressful time, so below are some tips to succeed on your exams!
1. Starting Early
I like to begin studying from day one. It’s important to keep up with lecture material day-by-day, rather than cramming it all in the night before. Spend the few days before the exam reviewing and brushing up on any topics that are not as familiar to you.
2. Office Hours
Office hours are one of the best resources on campus. Professors in all departments set aside a few hours once or twice a week to open up their offices for students to walk in and ask questions, talk about their concerns, or just to get to know them better.
3. Group Study Sessions
Studying with a group of people can really help you learn more efficiently. Teaching the material to other people not only helps them learn, but allows you to solidify the topics yourself.
These are just a few ways to get through exams smoothly and successfully! In college, you will find ways to study that work best for you. It may take some time, but you will eventually get the hang of it!
