  2. Study with classmates — having a study group with friends can be greatly beneficial.
  3. Stay organized — knowing the finals schedule is very important (WCHS schedule down below).
  4. Stay focused —  know exactly what you need to review and complete.
  5. Don’t procrastinate — even though procrastinating is tempting, begin studying early on, and you will thank yourself later!
  6. Pace yourself — cramming in too much information can lead to burnout & anxiety.
  7. Take breaks — reward yourself for your hard work.
  8. Quiz yourself — one of the best ways to prepare for an exam is by quizzing yourself and going back to questions that were missed.
  9. Color code — create a system of color-coding from the most difficult to the easiest topics.
