You’ve probably noticed that college classes move at a fast pace. Midterms are a few weeks away so let’s get ready!

Preparing for Midterms:

Check your course syllabi for midterm dates. The syllabi may also include information on the content of the midterm.

Check your class notes and/or midterm study guides (sometimes provided by professors) Do you understand all of the content? Is anything missing? If anything is unclear, talk to your professor during class or office hours. They are here to help.

Give yourself ample time to study.

Use Your Resources

You are responsible for your education, but you don’t have to do it alone. Be proactive and use the resources available to you.

Try not to cram the night before.

Study a little bit every day and midterms will be a breeze!

Don’t forget to team up with your classmates for study sessions. You can learn from each other and you will probably meet some great people.
