Top 5 Study Tips for Mid-terms 

Studying for Midterms can be stressful. Here are 5 tips to help you be more successful.

  1. Put Your Phone Away– Putting your phone away will lessen the distractions and make your study session more productive. 
  2. Study in 20-30 Minute Blocks of Time Utilizing 10-minute Breaks – Longer is not better. Shortening your study time keeps you from overloading your brain. Take a short 10-minute break in between your sessions. Use that time to get a snack or check your phone quickly. 
  3. Use Flashcards for Key Terms – Flashcards are a great way to increase repetition, so you remember the material. 
  4. Test Yourself with Practice Questions – Practice questions are a great way to test how well you know the information and encourages practicing the answers. 
  5. Utilize Study RoomsThere are many spaces on campus you can use to minimize distractions. Study rooms reinforce to the brain it is time to study.
