Success Tip of the Week

Prepping for Finals – Set a Schedule and Stick to It!

Make a list or master calendar of all the dates, times, and locations of all your exams, as well as the due dates and where to submit of all assignments you have left for the semester. It can be helpful to color-code this information – assign each course a color and only use that color pen to mark important dates for that course.  Now, work backwards and make a plan for how to accomplish all of the tasks you have left.  Block off your study sessions on your calendar.  If your TA or professor has extra help sessions, attend them.  If you would like assistance with or a template for creating an end-of-semester schedule, email Sarah smmack@syr.edu.
