Study Tip: Active Studying

For the last tip before finals week, try focusing on something called “Active Studying.”

This term means that you actively engage in doing something to enhance your understanding of the subject.

The more ways you participate in learning a subject, the more likely you are to remember it (reading an article verses writing an article, etc.).

One example of this method is practice tests.  When you take a practice test you get a sense of how the exam is going to be structured, what type of questions might be asked, and how you are expected to answer them.

Practice tests usually contain questions that are similar to those that will actually be on the exam, so focus on those topics.

Look at these questions as free points just waiting to be snatched and an awesome opportunity to feel confident going into the exam.

Check back next semester for more study tips from Maria w at the Online Testing Center.
