How to study for unit exams and quizzes


Published on

This presentation is a template for anyone that wants to know a systematic process to study or exams and quizzes. Or... for folks that know, but want to review key areas to ensure that their process of studying is the best it can be.
Besides being used by staff as a resource for setting their student up for success. I use it as a basic assignment prior to our first exams in both semesters. My students access it frequently in order to hone their study process.
