two days til first final, now what?

Postby Sean Bateman » Sat Nov 27, 2010 6:38 pm

outline has been done for a while now, worked through countless practice problems/hypos solo and with study group, took one full practice exam, taking full practice exam #2 tonight. did really good on practice exam #1 and feeling confident w/ the material overall.

going to read my outline 1 or 2 times today and tomorrow but that won't take long. i feel like i shouldn't have free time 2 days before the exam, but i do. anything else to be working on, or just chill out?

Watch a movie, play some video games. Read it over again tomorrow. Whatever you dont know won't be learned in the last 24 hours in my opinion. Thee comes a time where too much studying is counter intuitive.

This. Do something that relaxes you and do so off campus! Hang around supportive and positive people. Know you have given it your best and you were well prepared. Get some rest and keep your spirits high. You can and you will have a very successful first exam. I was in the flip out zone over mine, and I wish I had been gentler with myself.

If you like the results of your practice tests, feel that you know your outline well, and have made all your checklists and whatever else, relax. If I am feeling confident before an exam I'll usually just spend the rest of the day watching football or playing video games or something.

Study for your other exams?

See if you can rewrite your answer to be better, memorize your outline, etc.
