With finals quickly approaching, take a minute to watch this friendly reminder for keeping healthy.
Other study tips and reminders compliments of CU-Boulder sophomore and resident advisor (RA) Hayley Sanchez:
Start studying as early as you can.
Ask your instructor about the format of the exam if you don’t already know.
Go to your instructor’s office hours if you are unclear about any concepts.
Start studying by going through your notes. Try highlighting major topics and subtopics in one color and vocab in another.
Study from concept to detail, not the other way around. It’s much easier to remember details if you understand the concept and theory first.
Consider manipulating the material you are trying to learn. For example, turn a list into a drawing, chart or diagram. It will help be sure you understand the material and it will be easier to memorize later.
Study for a long period of time and take short breaks in between. For example, one hour of studying and 10 minutes of a break.
Flash cards are always helpful, especially if you make your own.
Consider making a practice test.
Study with other people and try having them quiz you.
Study for the style of learner you are. For example, if you are an auditory learner, you might record your class’ lecture and listen to it between classes.
