What are study tips for college freshmen during finals?

What is the best way to study for multiple classes simultaneously? I have a hard time focusing on one class before moving on to the next subject, as I tend to get sidetracked and remember I have something specific to do in a class I'm not currently doing work for.

Kalkidan’s Answer

-- Scheduled your study plans
-- Start early
-- Give yourself more time to study your toughest classes
-- Form a study group- discussing is a different way of catching important ideas for your brain
-- Talk it out and write short notes that you can go through when the date gets closer or even a day before the exam
-- Get creative with study aids - highlighting important points with different colors, etc , and reward yourself with your favorite things (like chocolate for every accomplishment)
-- Have a good sleep and enjoy yourself in between (10 - 30 minutes) by doing things you enjoy to allow your brain to be free of the burden

Kalkidan recommends the following next steps:

most importantly try to have reminder notes for every session and subject in a much creative ways

Sree Padma’s Answer

A smoother way to be prepared for finals is to be on top of your classwork right from the beginning of the semester. This will save you from over-worrying when the finals draw close. If you face hurdles or distractions in between, try to catch up on your work after each episode. This is a much better strategy than piling up work until the finals. Be mindful that it is easy for professors to recognize those assignments that are finished hastily.

- Keep a running journal (or to-do list) of study ideas for other classes that cross your mind while you are studying for a certain class. This way you have a list you can easily refer back to and not worry about forgetting things.

- Remember to prioritize rest. It's important for both your mental, and physical, well-being as well as helping you consolidate what you've learned.

- Leverage technology, specifically note taking tools (Evernote as an example) to streamline your note taking and learning process

- Make it a point to schedule 1-1 time with your professors. This time is invaluable as you will gain tips and tricks to help you study more efficiently and narrow your focus to the topics that are most relevant.

Most importantly, listen in class.
The review in class is of utmost importance too.
Anticipate harder questions that the teacher may have not covered in the review.
Anticipate questions that were not covered but are relevant to the course work.
Study at the library and with classmates, if possible. Study in a quiet place.
Time management: you need to learn this skill.
Make the most of your time before the exams.
Studying, reviewing, taking practice exams.
