1. Determine when and for how long you will study.Because no one will tell you that you must study for a certain amount of time in order to receive a certain grade—unlike final projects, papers, and portfolios, which come with specific guidelines, parameters, and due dates—it is very easy to put off studying. I spent days working on my fiction portfolio and freshman seminar paper, but did not begin studying for my economics test until 11 pm the night before. And I went to bed feeling unprepared.

3. Balance studying and sleep schedules.Everybody performs best on different sleep schedules. You know how many hours you need to do your best work. And if you don’t know, you need to find out. I slept very little during finals week (about as little as every other student) and felt better, more energized and more enthusiastic about working than I usually do, and was happy with all of my final grades. I think that studying is more necessary than sleep—at least during finals week – but that’s me. Plan your study schedule ahead of time so that you’re able to get as much studying in as you need and as much shut-eye as necessary. Not everyone is capable of pulling all-nighters and not everyone should. It’s best to avoid them at all costs and get sleep every night.
4. Study with friends.Studying with friends can prevent you from feeling isolated during this week of intense business. It also presents opportunities for smoothie breaks or a de-stressing laugh. Remember, finals week doesn’t have to be miserable—it can even be a good time for bonding, too.
