Studying tips ?

Well looking around the university, you can see everyone is starting to realize that next week is our final week of classes. Being a first year university student isn't all it's cracked up to be. I was not prepared for my first semester finals like I thought I would be. Thankfully this semester I only have to write one final. One big English final. I know there are about a billion ways to study, and distress but for me, I find if I leave stuff until the last moment I get it done without any distractions. I found this super cool youtube video about studying that I really wanted to share with everyone; because I am assuming (and forgive me if I am wrong) you probably have more than one final to worry about. I thoroughly enjoyed my second semester more than my first semester due to the nature of the classes., is a series of videos made to teach people how to do things from studying - managing stress - how to remember what you read, they are an excellent bunch of videos and I enjoyed watching them.

  1. Great video! I remember being so nervous writing my very first university final (astronomy). There were so many formulas and diagrams I had to memorize and everything just seemed to be the same for me. Breaking things down into reasonable chunks has really helped me retain the most important information. When I cram, I often feel more nervous! As teachers, it is important that we teach our students how to learn and remember information...not only for exams, but for life skills and experiences.
