Studying. Showing up to class and paying attention is one thing, but studying, and the way you go about studying is just as important. Avoid cramming, all it does is stress you out and you don’t fully understand the topic at hand. Ultimately, you want to study a little bit each night leading up to your exams, giving yourself the proper amount of time to process each aspect of the topic. Study in this fashion and you will be fully prepared and successful come test day. It will make your studying experience much less stressful and better prepare you for your exam. It is also much healthier for you to do as cramming leads to late nights and crashing.
