I get really bad test anxiety so I try to study ahead of time. Right now though I should be studying but my anxiety is creeping up on me so I played some NFL 2K3.

Usually right before a test I don't bring any notes with me. I just let it be and for those minutes before the test I just try to clear my mind and focus.

Study wise don't drink more than one Red Bull a night. If you must rely on drinks you can try drinking coffee and Mountain Dew at the same time. Or you can drink a lot of water since that'll make you go to the bathroom a lot.

Once finals are over though I'll be hitting up some parties. I study hard so I'm going to party hard.

I'm one of the laziest people on this entire planet... I'm not one to study, but that's cuz I do better when I don't. But if you're really afraid that you're gonna do bad or something, drink some coffee in the morning to calm you down and just relax during the test. You'll do better than you think. Oh yes, and a word of advice from me to all... I had finals this week and I learned one important fact, Finals are normally on scantrons SO BRING A PENCIL!!!!!!!

college finals tips

1. wake up on time
2. know where the final is at
3. bring change for the parking meters
4. bring pencils
5. bring scantrons, blue books, etc.
6. don't wear hats (my professers are anal about cheating)
7. sleep in 4 hour blocks cuz thats one sleep cycle. if u sleep 4, you'll feel refreshed but if you sleep 5, you'll be tired.

power naps are also great....sleep like 20 minutes and then wake up and ur good for an hour or 2...it at least gets you through part of ur next final

Know the material well enough that you can show up drunk for the final. Then do it.

Giving finals is MUCH better than taking them. Deadlines are also nothing big if you have being doing the work you should have all along...
