Last week was so busy and it felt like it was finals week. I had a total of four exams during those five days, including three exams on Wednesday.
I had a test in Social Responsibility and Ethics in Management, Aviation Labor Relations, Elements of Biological Science and Business Quantitative Methods. Most of the tests I had were multiple choices. My Science exam was take-home and it was online so it was not that bad!
Before last week, I didn’t really have a lot of work to do, but I can now say the workload officially kicks in.
Don’t Get Behind
Do your homework and other assignments in advance instead of doing everything the day before it is due. If you don’t understand a question from the assignment, you’ll have time to either meet the professor or send him or her an email. You won’t be confused and on your own at midnight before the assignment is due the next day. Sometimes, the homework can look easy at first, but it can require more time than you think to complete it. It happened to me a couple of times where I thought simply answering questions from the textbook would require less than 30 minutes. I was wrong.
I’m not saying you have to study weeks in advance before an exam, but you shouldn’t teach yourself the material the day before the test. I think the best way to learn the material is too study a bit every day. Writing stuff down also helps you to remember it.
On the days you don’t have anything to do, think about if there was anything you could do to get ahead of the game. This is my piece of advice for this week.
Until next time,
