Exam Study Tips

As of noon today I will have 2 exams down with only one more to go! Today is my last day of school and I have an AP Literature Exam to take! I am exempt from my exams meaning I only have to take the AP tests this year which is very nice! Over the past four years, I have learned a lot about studying for exams and wanted to share some study tips as exams begging to approach!

Exam Study Tips

Do Not Procrastinate

This just makes you feel like you have a whole lot to do but not a lot of time to do it in! Cut out distractions so that procrastinating will be less tempting!

Get Enough Sleep

The amount of sleep you get really will help to determine how well you do on a given exam. Make a conscious effort to get about eight and a half hours of sleep the night before your exams!

Clean Your Study Space

It is harder to get tasks accomplished quickly when your surrounding space is cluttered and messy. Before you even start studying be sure to clean up the surrounding area!

Turn Your Notes Into Flashcards

Flashcards are a great way to quiz yourself on the go! Start by reading through your notes and highlighting the most important facts, then transfer those important concepts to notecards to study!

Study Solo

While group studying can be great, you are more likely to get tasks accomplished when you are not distracted by others! Do your best to study alone in order to optimize the amount of time you are studying.

Remove Distractions

This goes along with not procrastinating but by removing distractions you are less likely to procrastinate!

Take Breaks

Studying for long chunks of times makes it harder for your brain to remember all of the information than if you study in pieces. I like to have a 3:1 ratio of studying to breaks!

I hope these tips help you to ace your exams!

Don't forget that all this week I will have 2 posts up per day! Content based posts will be up at 9 AM and fun product and shop posts will be up at 3 PM!

  3. So happy you posted these pics of pretty sheds. I want a bedroom lose with a metal roof to become able to listen to the
    rain. It wouls also be an excellent spare room, if it experienced somewhat heat.

    In Mississippi, I'd be able to use it all but perhaps 1 month, Jan, out of the entire yr. I enjoy the bedroom using the fireplace shed. My favorite.. so homey.
