Career Tips & Resources

 How to Effectively Study for Your Midterm Exams:

  1. Start early and create a study schedule.
  2. Take good notes.
  3. Attend review sessions or have study sessions with friends.
  4. Go to office hours and tutoring.
  5. Make sure to include self-care time.

You have your study plan set, time blocked off, and even a snack or two. Now, it is time to sit down and actually study. Here are some effective techniques to organize your studying to make sure you are making the most of out your time.

Make a study guide: In your guide, list and outline the concepts, facts, and equations that could be covered on the test. Use flash cards: Flash cards can be especially helpful in memorizing facts or concepts.

Do practice problems: These are often found in your textbooks, course materials, and online. Practice problems can help you become more familiar with the types of problems included on your midterms.


Things to Remember on the Day of the Midterms Here are a few tips to make sure you are in the best state of mind for your midterms.

  • Have a healthy meal—if you normally skip breakfast or lunch, make it a point to eat something on exam day. Choose a meal with foods rich in omega-3 fats, like salmon, flax seeds, or walnuts, known for their brain-boosting properties.
  • Stay hydrated—drink plenty of water before the exam. According to studies from the University of East London and the University of Westminster, students who bring water into the examination hall may score an average of 5% higher than those without.
  • Bring all necessary materials—remember your pens, pencils, rulers, or any additional tools required for the exam. Pack these items the night before, so you will not spend time looking for them in the morning.
  • Arrive early—plan to be at the exam at least 15 minutes early. If you are living off-campus, make sure to check traffic conditions so you can avoid any unexpected delays.
