Study Tips

The last two week of the semester are the most stressful. Almost as stressful as Finals week itself. Making sure that you have asked off work or organized your time around work and making sure you have everything you need to get all of your projects done, papers written, and studying done for finals. Successful preparing for finals week can make the actual finals much easier and less stressful. By starting early, it is easier to plan out what needs to be done by when so that you can be as successful and possible and not worry about finishing everything or forgetting something. Some tips include:

  • Making a timeline of when you want to work on the final for each class
  • Set a day or time for each class
  • Set a certain portion of each class final for each day
  • Set study breaks
  • Plan in distraction time (we all need a break and sometimes a 30-minute nap can really save you)
  • Get good snacks and drinks when you start studying (sometimes a drink run can turn into too long of a distraction)
  • Set a solid playlist to help you stay focused

Whatever you do, you are going to be successful if you put your mind to it. Good luck and know you are in the home stretch!

Helpful study tips

by Mary on March 6, 2017

in Academics

For me I have had different study habits each year that I have been a student in college because for me it is based on what classes I have at the time. I used very different study habits when I was in religion class freshman year as compared to sophomore year when I was in Chemistry class. It has also changed based on where I live. When I lived on campus in Medaille I studied mostly in my dorm room on the weekends when I had upcoming unit tests. I would also sometimes study up on the third floor of AB when I was preparing for a Chemistry test because I could bounce questions off of my classmates. So, if any science majors read this article I would suggest studying up on the third floor of AB with your fellow classmates. Sometimes last year in the evenings if I had a really big test coming up in one of my dietetics classes or chemistry, I would study at one of the big tables on the second floor of the library.  I also found this as a helpful space to study last semester for a few of my classes even as a commuter.

Another major tip that I was given my freshman year was, if you have a major test to study for you should turn off your phone while studying so that there are less distractions.  There were a few times last semester when I would work in the library and I found this very helpful as a way to be productive.  Some people are just so attached to their phones and it can be good to turn it off even if it is just for an hour, then you can turn it back on.  An additional helpful study tip that I can think of if you are studying for a large test is to take time to make study cards either online or in index cards right after you learn the vocabulary. This way you can start studying them right away and study a chunk of the cards at a time, so that you are not cramming at the last second.  I know I found this to be useful last semester when I was in biology because it is a course with a lot of vocabulary terms.

I hope everyone does well on their midterm exams or final exams if you have an eight week class that is ending and I hope these tips are helpful.

study tips for midterms

by Claire on March 6, 2017

in Academics

Midterms. Halfway done with Spring ’17. With spring break just around the corner, midterms are in full-swing on campus. Some of my favorite study tips include:

  1. Make time to go outside and enjoy nature when it is nice out.
  2. Do your homework as early as possible and start studying a little bit each day for tests, so when it comes time for the night before a test, you aren’t cramming everything into one night.
  3. Stick to some vitamin C for your energy, not sugar drinks and coffee.
  4. But do take the time to relax and have some fun.
  5. Start on projects and papers early because everyone knows how there is that one day that every assignment seems to be due on.

Just take it day by day and soon enough midterms will be over and spring break will be here!! We are almost there Griffins, hold on tight!

xoxo.

Mid-Terms. The exams that we dread almost as much as Finals. When it comes to study, there are a few things that could be done in order to boost your concentration and your retention of he content that you are trying to memorize.

Tips:

  1. If you absolutely need background noise of some kind, try either instrumental music or try ambient noise (if your surroundings don’t currently have this: i.e. birds chirping, rain & thunder storms, etc.). Reason being that when you are listening to either instrumental music or ambient noise, you are more inclined to not become distracted. If your music has lyrics: you will more often than not sing along. Or at the very least hum the tune.
  2. If you need absolute silence: This maybe the most obvious, but go to a location that doesn’t have a lot of people making an abundance of noise.  I.e. Libraries, Griffin’s Nest (provided that there is no event/meeting going on up there)
  3. Finally, go outside: Enjoy the weather & soak up the sun. If there are no events going on, the Golden Meadow is a great place to be!

Until next time guys, stay classy!

Study Tips

by Patricia March 1, 2017

Because I have moved on campus, my study areas have changed. Before I moved to campus, I used to study in my bedroom. I have a computer on my desk, and I put my backpack next to it. Before I had night classes, I studied most on campus before I would go home. As of […]

Whether I am in the Library or in my dorm room, I will always try to make either the best study environment possible. First, I MUST be listening to music to be able to focus. Yet, I just can’t listen to any sort of music to study. I have a “Study” playlist on my iPhone that […]

Do I See Winter Break on the Horizon?!

by Fontbonne University December 2, 2014

There is nothing more satisfying at the end of a semester than hearing Christmas music practically everywhere you go, shopping malls filled with door-buster discounts, food cooking away on the stove by your parents or grandparents, family coming together, snow falling on the ground, and being able to put your feet up! Why do I […]
