Step One: Know HOW to Study
While I won't claim that the way I study is the only way to study, I will say that there are some methods that are more effective than others. Check out my extensive college study tips post to get yourself on track!
Step Two: Know WHO to Talk toI never was really a fan of study groups until I became part of the right ones. It pays off to be friendly with your classmates, observe who participates in class, and join forces to study. Start suggesting to others that forming a study group is a good idea and get together (ideally 3-5 people) to review material. I find it incredibly helpful to talk through concepts with others to make sure I understand it myself!
It is also a good idea to get clarification from your professor if necessary. Begin rounding up questions you have and look over my office hours etiquette guide before meeting with your professor.
Step Three: Get Your Bum into the Library
Prepping for finals means a lot of hard work. For me, there is no better place than the library to do this. Get yourself in the zone, and remember to break up your studying with small rewards, like watching youtube, or chatting with friends. I have a complete guide of finals week library essentials you may also want to take a look at. Plus see: The One Tool You Need To Increase Productivity and 5 Ways To Increase Your Focus.
