“How to study for…”: First-Year Course-Specific Workshops

These workshops do not cover course content. Instead, they give first-year students the opportunity to learn from upper-year volunteers who have taken these courses in the past. You will learn effective ways to prepare for that course’s particular exam type.

If you took the “How to study for” workshop on one of these courses in the fall term, you will find some repetition of material. It may still be a good idea to come again to refresh your memory, though!
