I had WAY more tests then usual this week. So I though it was time to make a study tips post!
Just to let you know, things that work for me might not work for you.
1) Be Organized
This is something to do even before you know you have a test. Always take notes in class, and try to keep them organized. Last year I wrote everywhere and doodled over everything. Don't get me wrong, I have nothing against doodling. Just doodle on a separate page!
Actually study. Even five minutes is better then nothing at all!
3) Remind Yourself Why You're Studying
Before you start studying remind yourself of your dreams. I find this is a huge motivation for me!
4) Listen to Study Music
Don't listen to your absolute favorite songs that you get really into. It just distracts you to much! I like to listen to Cour de Pirate, because its really calm and soothing, and besides, its in French so I can't sing along.
5) Use Your Notes
I personally like to go over my notes and highlight them, and sometimes write the key points on a separate page. Also, be sure to look in your textbook to see if you are missing notes from any sections. If you are, take some notes from it!
After you're done, do something like drinking tea, eat some chocolate, read a book, take a bubblebath, or all four! You're not going to do very well if you are too stressed to think.
I hope you do great on any test you may have!
