With June only a week away, students grow restless with the thought of the impending summer vacation. Before there’s time for relaxing beaches, summer concerts, and hanging out with friends, students across the United States have to make it through final exams. To the freshmen who have never had to take finals before, the concept of taking a test that will contain all the material taught that year can be undoubtedly frightening, but with the right preparation anyone can pass their exams with flying colors.

One of the most common ways to study is to use study guides and practice exams. Because this exam features material from the entire year and not just a couple weeks worth of notes, it can be hard to identify which things need to be reviewed more closely. With a study guide, it is easy to quickly pin-point which material you know and which things need to be focused on. A study guide also gives an outline of what the test will be like, an overview of the year’s material in a way. Using the study guide, students don’t have to hunt through old notes, test, and quizzes to remember everything.

Another tool students can use for exam preparation is Quizlet, a website that allows users to import their own material and study using the website’s flashcards, games, and tests. This site is most helpful for learning vocabulary, formulas, or important facts about Brianna VanSickel (‘16) says, “When I’m preparing for my finals, I usually like to create my own outline of the chapters for information I will need.  For vocabulary, I usually make Quizlets. [I] write down all the equations I’ll need to study, maybe even an example of how to use the equation.”

The main thing to remember when studying for finals is to remain calm. Every student at Padua Academy works hard in their classes, and preparing for the final will be no different. Get a good nights rest before the first final, eat a decent breakfast, grab some sharpened pencils, and do the best you can. Study, relax, and have faith in yourself.
