Our Study Effectively guide has ideas for how to review course material to deepen your understanding and test your knowledge.
Prepare for a new environment
The place where you write your exam may be different than the lecture hall. Consult WebAdvisor or your course outline for the exam location, and visit the location before you write your exam.
Be prepared to write your exam with many more people than you see in lecture. Students in different sections of the same course often write their exams together. Also, more students may show up to the exam than to lectures.
If you might get distracted by other students, study or write practice exams in a space with other students, such as the library.
Studying for an exam in a place where you have to ignore distractions like noise or other students will help you prepare for dealing with distractions during an exam.
