The Curious ‘Cat: Strategies to prepare for finals?

Curious Cat

This week, the Curious ‘Cat asks Villanova students, “With about two weeks of classes left, what strategy would you recommend to prepare for finals?

RS10842_DSC_4247-scrKelsey Hanson—“Since I’m in the middle of that right now, I think spacing your work out so that you’re not doing everything all at once is really important and also taking a big project every day. So I have a paper that I’m working on today and then tomorrow I’m working on my statistics homework and then the day after I’m doing another thing—so one big project per day.”





Kate Dolan—“Organization: planning ahead and making a structured schedule to get all the work done ahead of time.”










Tope Abu—“Make a list. That’s the thing that helps me.”











Andrew Lynch—“I try to get as much sleep as I can ‘cause I work every hour that I’m awake … spending no downtime at all.”









Hayden Vines
—“During the day I go up to the third floor of the Library and study till 7:00 or dinner and then not study at night that much until it’s finals week. Then I’ll study a lot. But I’m going to try to get as much sleep as possible.”








Timothy Signorile—“At this point just prioritize: figure out which classes you need to study the most for. Structure your time as best as you can. And make it to the Library as often as you can.”
