5 Tips On How To ACE Your Midterms or Other Exams!

Keep your head up!

It’s the 8th week of school so that means midterms! Here are some personal studying tips!

  1. Choose a Productive Study Area - Leave your room! Go somewhere that you can get your mind off distractions and solely concentrate on what you are studying. I usually go to the library or the McNutt Campus Center!
  2. Take Breaks - Breaks are healthy for you and give you an incentive to study because you have something to look forward to. Taking breaks gives you a chance to relax and re-energize.
  3. Study Groups - If the test or project you have is very big and you need to break it down, form a study group. You can all split up the work and teach it to each other. This is one of my favorite ways to study.
  4. Use Note Cards - Writing things down and reading them off in short bursts is a great technique to absorb information. Note cards are easily accessible and you can even make you own out of random scraps of paper!
  5. Eat Well - You mustn’t forget to snack and drink water! Staying hydrated and eating stimulates your brain cells. Eating fruit and nuts helps me the most. They give me more energy than chocolate or coffee!

Hopefully these tips will help you achieve ALL A's!
