Studying Top Ten Takeaways

1. Review your notes on a regular basis, combine your textbook notes and lecture notes, and identify what you need help with - well before the exam

2. Identify as many details about the exam as you can: it's worth, length, content topics, it's format

3. Make a study guide! Print or gather up lecture notes, organize into topic piles, label the piles and possibly condense your notes again by topic

4. In problem-solving courses, gather up all the problems from your lecture notes, textbook and labs. Copy sample questions onto blank sheets and practice solving the problems on your own

5. Make an outline of the course as a great study tool. Focus on broad subjects and key issues so that everything fits on 1-2 pages

6. Find a good time and place to study that is free of distractions. Break up your studying into 30-60 minute chunks with 5-10 minute breaks in between

7. When you study, don't just read your notes again and again. Instead, explain the material out loud, teach the material to a friend, do a practice quiz, and solve problems

8. Join or create a study group for an exam. Guelph has a Supported Learning Group (SLG) for some first year courses - check them out

9. To help you study, draw diagrams and concept maps to visually represent the content and show relationships

10. Visit your professor after the exam has been marked. Ask to view the exam to see where you made mistakes and correct them the next time
