How I Survived Finals

Before I tell you the whole procedure, I’d like to note that this quarter was one of the most important quarters in my college career (so far). The thing is, there is a certain GPA requirement to get admitted to the Psychology Major. It’s not very high, but various past circumstances have forced me to retake a class to raise the GPA. That wasn’t fun, obviously, but I will talk about that later sometime. The point is, raising the GPA takes a lot of effort, and this quarter was extremely stressful because of that, since my admission to the major depended on it. I must say now that I did pretty well – scores above average, and good enough to raise the grades suitable for the admission. Three finals in a row wasn’t super fun, though, and it took me a lot of effort to get organized. Here’s what I did: 1. Create a study schedule and follow it. I know this one is a little obvious, like you would have totally thought of that without …

Memory Techniques

If you have a hard time memorizing large amounts of material for school or work, there are several techniques that could help. 1. Give it some meaning: Information is best processed when you apply some kind of meaning to it. For example, to remember random words “baby, chicken, music, tennis shoes”, you can imagine a baby in tennis shoes dancing the chicken dance. 2. Mnemonic Devices: Rhyming, acronyms, songs, associations, anything that helps you remember the order of the words. A wonderful example of this is a poem to remember the number of days in each month: Thirty days hath September, April, June, and November; All the rest have thirty-one Excepting February alone: Which hath but twenty-eight, we find, Till leap year gives it twenty-nine.

Are you ready for the next school year?

With only a few weeks left before Fall quarter starts, it may be a good idea to start looking ahead. If you already have your schedule, go down the list and look up the classes you’ll be taking. It’s good to know a little background info before you show up on the 1st day. Professor ratings (my favorite!): look up your professors‘ names on RateMyProfessors.com. It has reviews from students who have already taken classes with that instructor. Know what to expect: look through the textbook material, maybe some introduction videos, etc. Buy office supplies. This might as well be on the top of this list. Add your suggestions in the comments!

Textbook Read Tips

I got some questions recently on reading a book/textbook and taking notes. Here is the part about textbook reading, I’ll come up with novel-type book reading soon! The three main things you can do while reading a textbook are: 1) Stop highlighting and start writing things down- on margins or in a notebook. Because you’re thinking while writing, it will help you remember the information more. 2)Take concise notes, don’t include details. Key concepts and short descriptions only, no ramblings. 3) Look at the big picture. Summarize the chapters you’ve read, organize all information on paper. In the end you will know the key ideas and will just need to sort out the smaller details. Happy reading!

Multiple Choice Exams

Quick Tips for Answering Multiple Choice Questions 1. Read question and underline what it’s asking you. 2. Cover the answer choices (a, b, c, d) with your hand and try to answer the question yourself, without any help. Seeing the answer choices will just confuse and distract you. 3. Use the Process of Elimination:  – Eliminate what is obviously a wrong answer – Now only focus on what’s left. Now you won’t pay attention to the wrong answer choice and it won’t distract you anymore. Note* Strongly-worded answer choices are rarely the right answer! See example on the picture 🙂 My econ professor told us a few of these- you still have to study, but these techniques makes it easier for you to find the right answer among all the wrong ones that distract you. ** If you have any more tips you’d like to share with us, Submit them to me and I will post them and credit you, of course, or comment below!
