Midterms are right around the corner, collegiettes—as well as the potential loss of your sanity. Here are a few tips on how to keep your cool during midterms week.

1. Find the perfect study space

Whether you work best at the local café, in your dorm room desk blasting One Direction or hiding in a cubicle in the super-quiet library, find what environment works best for you and stick with it. Finding the spot that gets you into a groove best will really maximize your study time.

2. Figure out an effective study style

Maybe flash cards are your thing. Or maybe you like to rewrite out all your notes. Group study sessions work for some collegiettes, while others prefer working alone. Try out different tactics and see which study style works best for you.

3. Make a plan

Create a schedule and figure out just how much study time you think you’ll need for each exam. Spread out that time over a few days so you won’t be cramming for a midterm all at once. Most importantly, make each study sesh productive by divvying up the time you have to prepare for each midterm and sticking to that plan. Make sure you give yourself time for study breaks as well to grab a snack or hit the gym!

4. Get organized

Make an outline for yourself of what you need to know for each exam and how you plan on tackling the material. Mark important material with Post-its (Office Depot has convenient Post-it pop-up note dispensers, like this adorable Heart Dispenser) and fill up a planner, like this AT-A-GLANCE planner from Office Depot, with all the important dates that you need to keep in mind. Office Depot also has a ton of other school supplies to keep you organized during midterms, so be sure to shop online before you hunker down in the library!

5. Get plenty of sleep

It may be tempting to spend all night in the library with a coffee in hand, but when you end up too exhausted to work the next day, you don’t really end up benefitting from it at all. Take a tip from elementary school and set a designated bedtime each night to make sure you get those eight hours.

 

Good luck studying, collegiettes!
