Joe’s Answer

Finals can be daunting. I'm sure many have told you, but there is not a best way to study. It depends on how you learn best. What I find most beneficial is finding a friend who is in the same class and make studying fun. Bounce information back and forth and get excited about the subject. Utilize the professor as much as you can. If you don't understand a specific topic, go to the professors office hours and have a conversation about what you don't understand. Connect with people who are in the same boat as you are and grow together if that works best for you. I've found others that make flashcards physically or on quizlet. You have to find out what area works for you as well. Do you like a coffee shop, your room, outside, or the library. Find a space that helps you focus on your task and what you want to accomplish while studying.

Jessica’s Answer

Hi Kristen!


Different people have different learning styles. So ultimately what works best for you may not be what works best for someone else. To have a better understanding of what works best for you, there is going to be some trial and error involved.


For me, I learn best from seeing/ doing. So flashcards are a good resource for me when memorizing facts/ data. But if I am trying to learn a math concept, I just do extra problems where the answer is available for me to check myself. For me, reading a text book is the least effective study method. However, this may not be the case for you.

Thank you comment icon Thank you! And I agree; when it comes to math, it definitely helps me to do some practice tests to make sure I truly understand the concept. Kristen

Hi Kristen:

In my opinion, there's no right or wrong way to study. You just have to figure out your style. My style is that I prefer being alone. Simply because I could set my own time, space, minimize distractions, etc. etc. I'm a visual learner. Once I see what and how I need to execute I review the material. If I have questions I attempt to research the answer. Best of luck to you on your finals! 👍

Jad’s Answer

There’s really quite a lot of ways to find better ways of studying:

-Check your class website to see if your professor includes any additional study references, examples, or other materials.

-Look up YouTube videos to explain some topics that you need a refresher on.

-Create study groups and connect with classmates afterwards.

-Keep study areas distraction free and make sure you are not cramming all nighters, study a bit throughout the entire week
