General Advice for College Students around exam time?

Danneh Danneh
I'm assuming most of y'all have either graduated- or are old enough to have graduated.
I'm helping my friend who is an RA out make his bulletin board for the final month of the semester- and we're trying to do all sorts of advice for exam time. From how to stay well even though we're stressed, to how to study.
What do you think would be useful?

get plenty of rest & drink lots of water & get some sort of movement going - exercise, dancing now & then to release stress & get energized.

Sleep - never take caffeine pills to "stay awake", they'll just make you feel like a zombie.
Don't save everything for a cram session - it'll stress you out.
Review homework, tests, class assignments, etc - those are better indicators of the Final than the book will be.

Sleep, make a study schedule, drink water and eat healthy, exercise, plan some "fun" time between study sessions, turn off all distractions during study sessions

Always sleep and eat breakfast on and before exam days. Make sure you get to the test early. Those last few minutes won't make much of difference, but the calm of sitting and getting used to the space can have a big (and positive) impact. Layer clothing on exam day so that you can adjust based on exam room temp and stay comfortable.

Take breaks when studying. A good system for me was to study for 45 min and then take a 15 minute break before going back to studying again. It helps break up the studying so it doesn't feel like a marathon.

I also found I studied better if I studied where there weren't a lot of people around. Sometimes the library is crowded during finals so finding an empty classroom was a better place to study with fewer distractions.

I actually study better when I don't take breaks, but I do only a few hours of it each day. So about a week before the exam, I write out explicitly what topic I'm studying each day and how many hours. It helps me stay on track. =]

I totally agree about getting to an exam early. Not only do you have more 'calm time' to cram before hand, but nothing throws you more for a test than having to run there.
