Finals week can be the most stressful time for a student. Be sure you’re prepared for your exams with these study tips, which can help you conquer your finals. Follow this list as finals week approaches (the earlier you prep, the better) so you can ace your exams from start to finish:

  • Create your own study guide. Many teachers provide a study guide, creating your own can help you understand the material better. Outlining the important information you need to learn can be helpful.

  • Ask questions. Ask questions regarding the material and the exam so that you’re prepared when exam time arrives.

  • Start early. If you always start ahead of schedule, you’ll never be cramming the night before an exam.

  • Organize a group study session. It can be helpful to study in groups. Evaluate whether or not studying with others will be beneficial to the subject as well at your learning process.

  • Study things not on the study guide. Study guides are just suggestions of the main concepts to learn. Use your study guide for its intended purpose: a guide. Be sure to fill in the blanks with related information.

  • Take breaks. You won’t be able to memorize or comprehend all the material at once.

  • Stay well-rested. Make sure you’re well-rested so that you can be fully focused during your exams.

  • Create a study schedule Splitting the material into chunks you can actually achieve can be very beneficial.

  • Prioritize your study time. Some exams will be more difficult than others, some you may find easier to study for. Some may be worth more of your grade than others. Make sure to evaluate all of your exams to consider and determine all of the involved factors so you can study accordingly.

  • Study for the style of exam. If it’s multiple choice, you’ll need to know definitions and concepts. For essay exams, focus on your understanding of all the concepts presented, with examples in mind.

  • Quiz yourself. If you think about and create actual exam questions, you will likely become more familiar with what you need to study and, in the meantime, familiarize yourself with the type of language that will be on the exam.

  • Reorganize your notes. Evaluate and reorganize your notes into what’s important, outlining important concepts, formulas dates and definitions so they’re easy to understand.

  • Pace yourself. Make sure you stay focused and don’t burn yourself out. A great way to do so is to pace yourself rather than opting for the dreaded all-nighter.

  • Color code it. Create a system that allows you to color code material that’s going to be on the exam by what’s most important, less important, etc. This will help you focus on the most pertinent information and prioritize the material.

  • Visualize. If you’re a visual learner, it can help to create mind maps or diagrams to visualize how the concepts you’re learning relate to one another.
