Final exams are fast-approaching, so here is another tip to help you succeed:

Study Tip #3 — Make a schedule:  When and where will I study?

  • After gathering and organizing all of the materials that you will need to review, make efforts to realistically estimate the amount of time that it will take you to complete a thorough review of the material.
  • Using a calendar, make a schedule of what you will study, when you will study, and where you will study.  Be specific.  Designate a specific time and location to review a certain chapter, problem set, lecture notes, etc.
  • Structure your time to maximize your learning.  Your brain needs time and sleep to effectively process information into long-term memory.  It is more beneficial to schedule shorter, more frequent study sessions.
  • Decide where you will study.  Choose locations that give you the greatest control over environmental factors that can make it difficult to study efficiently (e.g., lighting, extreme temperatures, interruptions, etc.).
