Maggie’s Answer

A good check that I used on myself when studying for an exam was determining whether I could explain the study materials to someone else so that they could understand it.  If I could not explain the information very clearly, then I learned that I needed to study the information more. 


In addition, while some exams evaluate your memorization skills, most tests seem to assess your understanding of the concepts of the material. Try to ensure that you understand the actual concepts instead of just the terms/diagrams so that you'll be ready on the exam no matter how unfamiliar the questions may be.


Lastly, try to weigh your study time towards the areas where you feel least confident on the material.  If you equally weigh your study time across all areas, you may spend more time than is necessary on areas where you already feel comfortable with the material. 


Always take a deep breath and relax!

Best practice is to review your notes after each class. Rewriting the notes will help you learn a lot! Once a week go over the notes and then when the exam comes you will have to spend a lot less time going over the notes and be more prepared. Get a good night sleep.

Thank you comment icon *According to your learning style, you can use different things. For example, I learn by writing because I do not forget to things I write. Maybe you learn by reading, watching, listening etc. You should give importance to this. *Learning from your friends can be helpful. You can review the topics together before the exam. It is definitely useful. Sedanur Gök

Start studying early, ask a lot of questions, review your notes after class. When you start early, you will be less stressed by the time of the exam happens

Thank you comment icon Start with a good environment. Ie. Good lighting, not alot of background noise or distractions. It helps when writing things down or listening to it. I like to write key items out and recite them over and over to remember. Lauren Green
