3) Productive ways:
a) It's important not to cram. Cramming isn't a productive way to study because it's hard to learn so much information in a short time. Study ahead of time, because you can put only so much more in your brain.
b) Have a note-taking system that works for you. Take notes as if you had to rely on them to pass the course.
c) Start making a pre-test. Collect questions, problems, essay topics, etc. from past exams and homework assignments. Take the test a week or two before the final exam to see where you need to focus your studies. Decide where the test questions come from -- the textbook, the lecture or both.
I believe in
Preparation -----> demo/exam ------> review/changes------> exam
What I mean by this is I prepare for the exams and put myself in an exam environment and do it. Then I come up with the personal review of my performance.
Now the vital part is the changes I should make to better me, this is where rubber meets the road. This way we win the battle even before we are in the ring (boxing).
d) Stay organized and focused. One way to do this is to make a schedule breaking down each hour in each day of finals week. Be realistic about how long you can study and set study goals.
4) Keeping things simple (Ground Work)
a) According to educational psychologists, students can talk to someone about their worries and start thinking positive. But don't be too relaxed, because stress over exams makes students work hard for them.
b) It is important to get psyched up, but not to the point where one becomes overconfident. Be nice to yourself. You should also exercise because it will help you work well and relieve stress.
c) Always get enough sleep and eat well, especially during exam time.
d) Eliminate interference when you study. Find a spot away from people and noise. Keep snacks or drinks close by, so you don't have to take unnecessary breaks.
