How to Survive….. Preparing for exams Exams seem to come at the worst time. You probably have enough to do with finishing assignments and catching up on the reading. But you also need to start thinking about exams….. So where do you start? 1. Find out what you’re up against Carefully go through your course outline List topics that should be covered Highlight weak areas 2. Find out the details When and where is the exam held? How much of the unit is it worth? What type of questions will there be? 3. Take time to make time Look at your current routine Prioritise your work putting the hardest topics first Establish a routine that gives you lots of variety and breaks TIP - repeating cycles of 40 mins work and then a 20 min break will help you keep working for longer. Need some help? One of the best ways of getting an idea of what the exam will be like is to look at past exam papers. These are freely available from the UWA library at: arch/exampapers/

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
