5 Last-Minute Study Tips

2. Make It a Group Thing

Cramming in groups is a great way to make sure you cover all the bases, especially if you’ve been prone to miss a class or two (or ten) over the course of the semester. Different perspectives can give you a feel for what the more strategic concepts are – which ones you should be lending the bulk of your time and attention.

Be careful, however, not to simply take other people’s answers for granted. Just because they thought of something useful does not mean they know everything about the topic. Make some notes and look up any concept that you aren’t completely confident you understand.

Studying in groups is also a good way to keep the stress at bay. The social aspect of it will keep you in good spirits and that positivity will rub off on your performance.
