    Supplemental Instruction- Finals Preparation Activity Supplemental Instruction- Finals Preparation Activity Presentation Transcript

    • PREPARING FOR FINALS
      April 21, 2010
    • Finals are right around the corner!
      If you start preparing NOW, you can allocate your time efficiently, work effectively, and ease your stress
      Finals can be crucial to your grade so don’t blow them off, forget to study, or consistently choose to do other activities with your time
      Finals Preparation
    • Do you know when your finals are?
      Double check times, locations, and materials needed ASAP to verify that you don’t have to move any
      First and Foremost
    • Count how many days until your finals and calculate how many days you have left to complete work for class AND study for your finals
      Keep in mind other responsibilities or commitments you may have during dead days or finals week
      Plan Your Time
    • Make a detailed study guide for each course (handout on BlackBoard)
      Organize all materials (notes, reviews, quizzes, past exams, study guides) NOW so you are aware of how much studying you need to do
      Create a day by day study guide that includes goals for each day. Be strict with yourself but also leave room for the unexpected
      Check off things as you accomplish them! Progress feels good!
      Start Preparing
    • Study each day in a location where distractions are minimal and you can focus
      Study in 45-50 minute blocks. If you study for more than 2 hours straight (no break)- your retention rate drops below 60%. Take a 5 min break every 45-50 minutes to let your brain sort out the information
      Follow your daily study guide and make adjustments when necessary
      Reward yourself for progress!
      Studying
    • GET SOME REST
      Eat healthy meals and snacks
      Take a walk, exercise, or just be outside for a few minutes
      Set multiple alarms
      Lay out everything you’ll need the night before (calculator, book, paper, pens)
      Arrive early, allowing for parking, finding the classroom, etc
      Before The Exam
    • Stay calm
      Practice deep breathing and mentally envision yourself doing well (because you are so prepared)
      Avoid talking about the exam, content, or fear with others before the exam
      During The Exam
    • Reward yourself!!! Treat yourself as a reward for all your hard work and preparation
      Then, continue studying for your next exam!
      After The Exam
    • Professors
      Teaching Assistants, Supplemental Instruction Leaders
      Other students
      Success Center
      Tutors
      Studying help
      Counselors
      Resources
    • “For every minute spent in organization, an hour is earned.”
      “Success always comes when preparation meets opportunity.”
      “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”
      Remember….
