How I can prepare myself for an exam?
I'm having a hard time to organize myself and plan my day.
The final week is getting more stressful for me and I have problems to memorize the new information.

To start being more organized and making a plan for your day, you should take time out to begin the night before. Before you go to sleep, in your mind's eye start thinking about what you should do to have a good positive day the next day. If you need to write down your goals and what you need to do, then do so! Some people are more organized when they write things down before bed and then look at their list the next morning. I suggest actual writing on a notepad, journal, etc. because when you write things down, you tend to remember them more. Also... if you are on technology late into the evening, try to change this habit. It's not good for your sleep; the blue light interferes with sleep.
I hope this helps you and best of luck!
There is a great tool call Livescribe Pen and notebook available on amazon. This allows you to take notes and record audibly at the same time. It connects to your device and when you view your notes later, you can touch the notes and the audio will playback as well. I have found it very useful in many situations. It can help jog your memory from the lessons you are being taught.
Best of luck to you! You will be fine!
2. Then, prioritize the topics, putting the ones you need the most work on, last.
3. Familiarize yourself with the topics you know well, make sure you understand all of the details, and any specifics that may be on the test.
4. Once you are totally confident in the topics you needed less time with, then move on to the areas/topics that you are most concerned about.
This will allow you to have guaranteed correct answers to depend on, providing you with the time and security of knowing you can take your time on the questions you are less sure of.
*when organizing your areas/topics, give yourself enough time to put effort into prioritizing.
*get plenty of rest the night before you take the exam
*drink calming tea to relieve anxiety that may be associated with exam taking
*prepare yourself with testing martials and content so that you are confident
*eat a healthy meal before the exam
*wear lose clothing so that you're not distracted with discomfort
*implement the process of elimination when in doubt
*induce all practices that will ensure that you are not faced with any hindering surprises; such as, but not limited to, confronting tactics that require critical and analytical thinking
Lastly, best wishes hereafter.
Just a gentle reminder, do not rely on your memory. Make sure that you are content ready and enhance skills that the exam will compel--i.e. problem solution, critical thinking, analytical thinking, and area specific material.
