1.0General Advice Midterms are too frequent, and finals always seem to be too hard. Here are tips to help make life easier, and general advice on how to get through the Skule year successfully. STUDY SMART A. The Rule of Three 1) Complete all assigned readings before class 2) Go to every single lecture 3) Make your own personalized hybrid lecture/reading notes B. Study Group  Have one (1) or two (2) study partners, max.  Make sure they are committed and focused C. Discuss Material  Explain and discuss your lectures notes and homework with your Study Group  If you can explain a concept or solution to a problem in a clear and concise manner to others, and they understand, then you know the material well enough  Review your lecture/study notes each night in bed for 10 minutes before going to sleep D. Stay Organized  Use your agenda to record important dates and your homework schedule  Focus on one (1) or two (2) courses each day. Anything more is a waste of effort  Stick to your schedule; things become overwhelming when you get lazy and fall behind E. Use Office Hours  The professor is a valuable resource. If you have a question, chances are that the professor can explain the answer better than the TAs or your friends  Review concepts from class and have them explained in more detail  Inquire about methods and solutions for tackling challenging questions TEST PREP CHECKLIST A. Lecture Notes Review  Go back and actually read your lecture notes… that’s why you wrote them down! B. Problem Sets  Complete all problems for the assigned dates that the course suggests  Now go back and do them all again from the beginning to study for your test C. Previous Midterms and Exams  Complete the Midterms and Exams with your study group  Only attempt them once you have mastered the problem set questions  Find “all” previous midterms and tests at courses.skule.ca D. Stay Well Rested  Everyone needs sleep to function effectively  There is never a good reason to pull an all-nighter E.
