4 things you can do right this second to get set for finals
All those pages that are scattered around your locker are probably just the ones you’re gonna want around midnight right before your year-end math test. Anticipate needs like these and start tidying up your locker, backpack and desk. Can’t find an important worksheet or a test? Ask to borrow your bud’s so you can copy out answers or deets you’re gonna need to succeed.
Organize your notes
Instead of rooting through your science folder for that bit on biospheres right before the big test, take an hour now to neaten up your notes. Put them in an order that makes sense to you—that might mean grouping certain items thematically, chronologically or alphabetically. If you’re prepping for an open-book test, this is essential! Tip: As you root through your papers, tab the ones that are incomplete or that you didn’t do well on. Ask your teacher or a friend to clarify the problem areas.
You’re awesome at vocab but awful at algebra? Pair up with a pal who could use your skills (and teach you a thing or two at the same time). Set up a few study dates so you can make flash cards, quiz each other and share useful tips on memorizing tricky theorems and scores of seemingly random information.
