Keep an Organized Notebook

If your teacher is like some of the ones that students have talked about, you’ll have an open note final exam. This is great because you can have a helping hand as you take your test, but make sure that your notes are organized! Handwritten notes are the best way to go for this class, so having a jumble of notes is possible. Before the final go in and organize your notebook so that you know exactly where you need to go for help! It’s one of the best things you can do to ace this exam.


Stay Calm and Breathe

It’s hard to stay calm with the stress of finals, but if you want to make sure that you can do well in this final, you have to! It’s essential to just sit back and breathe. Don’t overstudy or worry too much! Letting the stress just leave your body is an incredibly smart thing to do for Soc. It’s an easy class concept-wise… it’s about Social Problems in today’s society. The material isn’t the hardest, but it can get tricky. Just stay focused and stay calm and you can ace this final.



As stated, Soc 005 here at Penn State ranges depending on your teacher. Hopefully, the teacher you get is someone who lets you use your notes! Even if they don’t, you can still use these tricks to ace your finals! Stay focused and make your way to this finals week!
