Preparing for Exams

When it’s time to demonstrate what you’ve learned, be strategic about how you prepare and perform. Exam preparation starts with listening in classes, reading course materials, and completing assigned work. In this session we’ll discuss strategies you can you use every week to prepare for exams, as well as strategies for studying in the final weeks before exams.

Peer tutors can help you improve your study skills. Drop-in to see a tutor during their scheduled shift.  Working with someone from your subject area will probably be the most beneficial.
