1. Don't cram!

Cramming before an exam is not conductive in the long run. You are more likely to have a memory dump and be back to square one for finals week.

2. Focus on one subject at a time.. but not for long periods of time. If you feel mentally stuck, move on to a new subject.

3. Give yourself a break!

One professor suggests: "An hour a day, then go out and play." So spend an hour a day on each course, then stop for the day.

4. Turn off your phone!

Or at least put it on silent. You can also set a special ringtone for emergency calls from your family. Cell phone are incredibly distracting and the best way to procrastinate is to find distractions.

5. Whenever possible, try to get 8 hours of sleep a night. Better sleep habits usually lead to a higher GPA.

6. Be an active leaner!

Show up to class. Do your homework. Participate. Ask questions. Take notes. Pay attention!

7. Find a dedicated study group - people that aren't meeting to socialize but rather to help each other and hold each other accountable to get work done.

8. Read your textbooks!

And read them like a student...

How so?

1. Find the study questions at the end of the chapter.

2. Have a conversation with the text.

3. Write notes alongside important facts or ideas.

9. Use methods that work for you!

Flash cards, self-quizzing, teaching others, rhymes, images, ect. There are so many learning styles that trying only one might not work.
