Q&A: What’s a realistic way to study for exams?Sharing useful ways to study for exams
With exams coming up next week, students share their best study skills to remember the material taught to them. From flashcards to study guides, preparing for exams all depends on how you learn and strategize.
"Personally I study in 15 minute blocks so whatever I do in the 15 minutes is how I study," sophomore Chance Cain said. "Once the time is up I take a break and then do another 15 minutes."
"A realistic way to study for exams is to practice the stuff that you really don't know," sophomore Anthony Padron said. "Flashcards and reviewing the material every so often helps so that you can understand it more."
"I'm not really good with taking tests, I feel like I panic a lot so to prevent myself from second guessing everything I review my notes," junior Alyssa Ross said. "If it's like vocabulary words or if I have flashcards I have someone at home or a friend quiz me."
"I study before exams by using note cards and I do simple methods by writing questions on one side of my paper and the answers on the other," sophomore Kianu Nicado said.
"I find that by having flashcards and constantly quizzing yourself helps me study better," junior Jordan Salas said.
