The next two weeks for students are really important because many of us our taking our first exams for the semester. Here are a few tips from me to prepare for exams:
- Complete the practice exams that are handed out! You will have a good idea of what the actual exam will entail.
- Go to office hours to ask any remaining questions you may have about the content covered in the exams.
- Read the syllabus again to review how the professor grades and what they expect of you during the exam.
Best of luck studying, FSPH!

Today I wanted to share some tips I use to study and prepare for exams. Time management is KEY 🔐 for studying for exams in college. Do not wait last minute to review and practice materials! I like to review and practice for my exam by using Quizlet. I try to create my set while I’m learning and review at least one week before.
Another method I use for studying is taking thorough notes! Notes are super important for reviewing information. Ask questions and go to your professor’s study hours. Make sure you understand the information you are being taught. College is expensive! Take advantage and use your resources. There are tutoring services on campus that I have used before to prepare for exams as well. I hope this helps everyone who is navigating through college!

Studying for exams can be really stressful! Before you can get an effective exam prep routine down, you have to take care of yourself. I always make sure to get a good night’s sleep and take some time to relax before I start exam prep.
Here are a couple of things that I do as a graduate student to prepare for an exam: I always try to start my exam prep routine a couple of days before the exam so that I am not cramming the night before. The secret to getting ahead is getting started and staying consistent in your study habits!
