There's More to Acing Finals Than Studying

Dear Students,

You've made it to the last day of class this semester! For many classes that means filling out CIS sheets and maybe even some food, but for a lot of courses in CNS that means squeezing in one last exam. Here are some words of wisdom to carry you through today and finals:

  • Sleep. I know I keep giving this piece of advice, but it's crucial to everything, including finals. So, if doing as well as possible on the test is your goal, look beyond just the content, and get some sleep.
  • Care. In times of high stress healthy habits, are usually the first to go. Remember to take care of yourself. Go on a walk as a study break, get some fresh air and eat your veggies. The mind you need for finals is part of your body so take care of the whole thing.
  • Faith. The ability to press on in the face of daunting tasks is what sets you apart from so many others… yes, you. You have what it takes; have faith in yourself and break down daunting tasks into step-by-step systems.

Work hard. Help each other follow the three pieces of advice above. Ace your finals.

Dr. Vanden Bout

P.S. If you have any online Course Instructor Surveys, be sure to fill them out. We really do care about the results.
