As of April 16th 2014, there are 35 days left until my first final exam. I have always struggled in comprehensive final exams. I realized it is impossible to recuperate materials learned in 16 weeks (multiply all that information by 4 for four courses). Spring break ended two weeks ago and results from second exams were returned a little more than a week ago, but I feel that it is just the right time to start going over the contents of the first six chapters.
I’m probably going to study during any free time I have after this week. I will study the materials for the next exams at the same time as reviewing materials from the start of the semester. It is something I have not done before but I think would be beneficial. I will try to meet up with some friends and form study groups in the coming weeks. I have learned to study for each class and each exam in those classes differently. Often I find it helpful to learn materials through various mediums like YouTube, Khan Academy, diagrams, other professors, and classmates. Each source provides a new perspective on the same material. Send me an e-mail if you have a good study method and I will bring it up on a future post!
