Princeton Review’s Finals Study Tips
1. Make a finals game plan.
If you plan out your study sessions (for ALL your exams), you’ll get a better handle on how much work you’re facing.
2. Start early.
Start studying for finals a few weeks before the first exam, and figure out how much time to set aside each day for each subject.
3. Study in this order: a) definitely b) probably c) might be on the final
Don’t just start from the beginning of your notes and try to cram everything in: Think about what you know for sure will be on each test and review that material first.
4. Give yourself more time to study for your toughest classes.
By starting with the toughest stuff first, you have time to ask your teacher questions.
5. Form a study group.
There’s nothing like peer pressure to keep you motivated to study.
6. Talk it out.
By talking through the facts and formulas with a study partner, you’re thinking about the material more deeply, which means you’ll remember it better later.
7. Get creative with study aids.
Make flash cards to help you memorize dates and equations. Or come up with a mnemonic device—a system of memorizing facts using a phrase or acronym you’ll definitely remember.
9. Quiz yourself.
Students tend to remember the information they’ve been quizzed on better than the information they simply review.
10. Make sleep a priority.
11. Take five.
Take breaks to improve your concentration.
12. Brain food is real.
Eat healthy and drink plenty of water to keep your brain firing on all cylinders.
