Academic Success Tip - Do not procrastinate!

During the last week of class and especially during the Thanksgiving holiday, beware of the false sense that “I have all day to do X,” which will likely cause you to procrastinate.  Instead, fill in blocks of time each day with the topics you will study during that time period.  Stay focused and stay on task.  If you plan your work and work your plan, you will not fall behind.   

Valid Exam4 Practice Tests

Academic Success Tip - Study Groups

Use study groups judiciously as you prepare for finals.

  • Do not skimp on your personal review time by joining too many group activities.
  • Schedule group time when you have reviewed the material enough to gain the most from discussions.
  • Alternate who explains concepts or answers questions so everyone has to “work” and get practice.
  • Have individual practice question time as well – your group cannot help you during the exam.
  • If study group sessions become too frustrating, consider gracefully bowing out to study by yourself or with just one other person.

Today Is the Exam4 Practice Test Deadline!

The deadline for submitting a mandatory practice test, if you wish to use your computer for exams this semester, is TODAY (Friday, November 19, 2010) at 11:59 PM. You must identify yourself with your UofL User Name (e.g., EAPRES01) on the practice test for it to be valid.

Students who used Exam4 for the Professional Responsibility exam Friday, November 5, are all set and do NOT have to submit a second practice test. First-year students must download, install and submit a practice test using the new version of Exam4 now available. The version 1Ls used for the Legal Research final and/or the Torts I mid-term has expired and will not run anymore.

If you've submitted a practice test, you can check to see if it was received by looking at ExamTracker (see link below), which is also displayed this week on the hall monitors.
