Organization: Midterm style

There are many events that college students dread, like hearing their overzealous teacher lecture, or being cut off by a crazed driver on I-95. However, nothing causes students to panic more than hearing these two words echo endlessly in their minds: midterms and finals.

There is no single secret to studying

In the search for a perfect “A,” students try every study technique they hear of, from studying upside down to listening to Mozart’s sym-phonies in the background. Some go with the supposedly tried-and-true advice of choosing one area to study, studying one subject at a time, and studying in blocks of time. Others alternate study environments, mix subjects while they study, space their study sessions apart and use self-testing.
