During this month full of tests and final exams, I wanted to give a few studying tips that have worked for me. Try them out and see if they work for you or if you have any other ideas, leave them in the comment box below! We would love to hear from you!Quote of the day:
“It’s not going to be easy, but it is going to be worth it in the end.”
- Finding a place to study: Campbell has many great places to study. Personally, I love studying in the basement of the library. There are not many people on that floor, if you’re looking for a quiet place to study, the basement is the place for you! If you’re looking to work with a friend or a group the third floor of the library is also a great floor to study on because it is a floor for group studying and you can book a study room. You also have all the resources you need in the library, like a printer, whiteboards, books, stapler, hole puncher, there’s even a Starbucks inside! What more could you ask for? Getting a study room in the student union is also a great place to study and get work done with friends.
- Tutoring services: If you are stuck on an assignment, in need of test prep, or just need general help understanding course material CU succeed is a great place to go for tutoring. You can access it through the blackboard under the “Assist” section on the homepage located on the bottom left side. Book a tutor for test prep, exams are coming up!
- How do I Study?: If you’re not sure exactly how to study, you can try making a quizlet, trying out some flashcards, going over your notes and highlight important words or key terms, even making a Kahoot can help! Something that my friends and I do is when we study together one person in the group acts as the teacher and teaches the other people in the group. This helps the student act as a teacher because if they can teach it then it helps them realize how much they know or what they need to work on. If helps the students who are paying attention to the lecture by listening and understanding what is being taught by their friend, it’s a win-win situation!
