Friends and peers are great resources for picking up ideas on how to study. Talking to other people about study strategies and course content, and hearing about how other people structure their time is a great idea, and I’m not about to tell you not to do it. In fact, I think learning as many different ways as possible to find academic (and general) success is incredibly helpful. I’m sure you’ve heard this before, but in the face of stress and confusion of midterm season easy to forget the main caveat to this approach: someone else’s approach to studying isn’t necessarily the best approach for you.
This class is designed to help you master and memorize the formulae and methods you’ll need to perform at a high level on equation-based exams in math, computer science, engineering and related subjects.
Dealing with essay exams can be tricky: how do you produce a complex and clear argument in just a few minutes? We’ll show you how to revise, how to practice, and how to ace the exam.
So you’ve got a hundred decisions to make in an hour, and a whole textbook to work from.
We’ll talk you through a process to help you select what you’ll learn, memorize it, and ease the stress of exam day.

It’s week 12, exams are approaching and hopefully you have taken some time to view your exam schedule (if you haven’t, then I’d highly recommend you check it now). The question that I have for you is, “What kind of race will you be running this exam season? Will you be sprinting your way through multiple back-to-back exams? Or will you be running a marathon with exams extending to the last day?”
In my first year, I ran a 100-meter sprint, with 5 back-to-back exams and an occasional study day in between. In my second year, I ran a 200-meter sprint, with more than 3 days to rest between a few exams. This year, I’ll be running a marathon.
Learn how to schedule adequate time for studying for each of your final exams – no matter how many you might have! A Peer Learning Assistant will take you through the process step-by-step and answer your questions about revising, catching up and writing exams.
