How to prepare for finals week and take care of yourself

  • Create a study guide with all the key points you need to know
  • When studying, make sure to take breaks so you won’t crash (preferably every 45 minutes to the hour, depending on how long you’re studying)
  • Have a snack while studying, but not something that will make you crash
  • Study with friends so you can quiz one another or study alone using Quizlet
  • Don’t stay up after 12 a.m.
  • Be sure to get a full eight hours of sleep
  • Have a positive mindset
  • If something confuses you, ask about it before it’s time to take the test
  • Eat breakfast during the day of the test
  • Don’t cram 30 minutes before the test
  • Have extra pencils/pens just in case
  • Bring water/snack so you can get the full test time
  • Be punctual during test day, don’t be late
