Preparing for finals week: Study strategies

Kalea Baker, Reporter

Finals are right around the corner and many students are looking for ways to begin preparing for finals to finish out this semester strong. Here is a list of strategies that students may use to  prepare for finals:

Start early 

When you start early you can study small amounts of material at a time and add a little more information during each study session. This also helps you avoid the stress of cramming the night before a big test.

Start a study group

If you pick the right people to study with, they can help keep you on track and make sure you are actually studying. They can also be great people to ask questions to when your teacher isn’t available to help.  

Create your own study guide 

Creating your own study guide is a good way to study the information in a way that makes sense to you so that you will be more likely to remember the information on test day.

Get lots of sleep 

It is recommended that high school students get eight to ten hours of sleep each night. Getting the right amount of sleep can help with memory and can also improve your ability to focus for longer periods of time.

Make studying fun 

If you come up with a way to turn studying into a game, you will be more likely to spend a good amount of time studying. You can use Kahoot or some sort of matching game to help ease the process.
