Transcript of "Supplemental Instruction- Finals Preparation Activity"

  1. 1. April 21, 2010
  2. 2.  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
  3. 3.  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
  4. 4.  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
  5. 5.  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!
  6. 6.  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!
  7. 7.  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
  8. 8.  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
  9. 9.  Reward yourself!!! Treat yourself as a reward for all your hard work and preparation  Then, continue studying for your next exam!
