Three sure-fire tips for finals preparation from a pro who was a top student.
Tip # 1 -- Get Hold of Excellent Notes (not necessarily your own notes)
At times students study hard and other times they doze off, but one thing is for sure. Everyone wants to be able to get good grades on their finals. But students probably won’t read or re-read thick textbooks and lecture handouts alone won’t suffice. People will have their own notes, but since he or she may not be a good note-taker in the first place, they may or may not be useful. Spending lots of time digging for notes from websites is time consuming and the quality is uncertain. Therefore, the best bet is to find those few excellent note-takers from the same class and ask them to share them or even buy notes from them.
Tip # 2 – Allocate Time Wisely
Not every hour is equal. That is, one may find his alertness and energy level fluctuates in a day and in the evening. Use the highest alertness time to review notes of the most difficult course and make an adjustment according to this rule for other courses and because of that do not stick to an inflexible schedule.
Tip # 3 – Ask the Best Peers When You Have a Question if your Professor is Not Available. Not just any other student.
Follow these three tips a student would do quite well for the finals.
Btw, starting next semester check out Knowledge Notebook, a simple note-taking and study tool that reflects the proven and best study strategy: Cornell Method.
