Academic Success Tip - Review Your Outlines
Posted November 1st, 2010 by Kimberly K. Ballard
Review; review; and then review. You want the course information to be as comfortable as a baggy pair of sweats when you walk into the exam. If you do not consistently review material throughout the remainder of the semester, you will walk into your exams with information that feels like a stiff new suit instead. Deep understanding and quick retrieval from memory pay off because of the time constraints of exams. You can recognize the nuances in answer choices or fact patterns better, and you will not waste time trying to remember the material. If you get in the habit of reviewing your outlines each week, you will have a better understanding of the material and will be better prepared for the intense course review before finals.
