We also know that those tests are a big deal. And while studying habits might not seem like the most exciting topic, we might as well get through this together. Who knows, maybe you have some tips and tactics that could help a fellow PI gal!

Do you cram with flashcards? Study with friends at the library? Wait until the last second or prepare weeks in advance? Give us the details…and then promptly return to those books. 🙂

    I make my own study guides and helps me review the material and memorize it so well!

    This is my first year of finals, and to be honest, I’m a little nervous…does anyone have any tips? c:

      Tips! From my personal experience, finals aren’t as bad as people make them out to be. As long as you have studied the material and aren’t overly stressed out, you should be fine! Going into the tests confident that you know the long studied for material, and having faith that you’ll do great helps too! There is no need to be nervous! I’m sure you’ll do fantastic!!!!

      Yes. So many tips. Go to the library. Download self control app (it blocks sites that distract you). Put on your favorite playlist lightly. Rewrite your notes and highlight ones that confuse you. Flash cards help too! Get Starbucks or food when you need a little break 🙂

    I rewrite my notes, then before the test I type them up.

    I just pay attention in class and then the night before I reread my notes and then I take the test. Usually I do pretty well. Finals stress me out, so I try not to think about them that much. :/

    My teachers usually have study guides and reviews before all the big tests and thats how I study, Im always worried I might jinx the tests if I study and then happen to forget everything.. so other than the reviews in class, I don’t study..Although I should… yep!

      Hey Ali! Be prepared, if you’re not in college. Once you go to college, professors don’t prepare you at all! It was a shock to me to not have study guides. Just letting you know 🙂

    I don’t study for finals, and I don’t really celebrate after they’re done. My teachers should be good enough to keep me informed and interested during class (though mostly, they’re not up to par on that one).l

    THIS IS SO RELEVANT TO MY CURRENT LIFE.

    Finals are making me want to cry. I’m at the library with a bag of cookies, trying to find some motivation to study for 5 exams :((((
