Study Tips from Honors Program students – Part 2

Looking for some study tips? The members of our MSMC Honors Program talk about the study tips that have worked for them.

Nicole Cavallo – senior Biology and Chemistry major on the Physician Assistant prep track: “Don’t procrastinate!”

Catrina Colombo – sophomore Undeclared major:“Taking a little bit, day-by-day, so cramming isn’t an option. It’s less stressful and more efficient!”

Brianna De Lizzio – sophomore Nursing major: “Start early, way before you think you need to. Even if your friends aren’t studying yet, it is okay. You will be more prepared. If you make a study guide for each exam as the semester is going on, you can compile all of your study guides at the end to study for your final, and you don’t need to spend time making one.

Procrastination was a bad habit of mine that messed with my academic performance ever since high school. When I had a lot of homework, I always waited until the last minute to do it.

My First Year – Testing Tips

Hey​ ​there!​ ​My​ ​name​ ​is​ ​Natalya​ ​Hoover,​ ​and​ ​I​ ​have​ ​just​ ​started​ ​my​ ​freshman​ ​year.​ ​I​ ​came​ ​to the​ ​Mount​ ​to​ ​pursue​ ​a​ ​career​ ​​in​ ​Psychology​ ​in​ ​hopes​ ​that​ ​after​ ​graduation,​ ​I​ ​can​ ​continue to​ ​help​ ​individuals​ ​for​ ​a​ ​living. ​​​ ​​ ​​ ​​ ​

As​ ​my first finals​ ​week​ ​approaches,​ ​I’m​ ​not​ ​going​ ​to​ ​lie​ – ​I​ ​am​ ​nervous.​ ​Testing​ ​is​ ​nerve-wrecking,​ ​ ​but​ ​really,​ ​a​ ​final​ ​is​ ​just​ ​another​ ​test​ ​of​ ​what​ ​we​ ​learned throughout​ ​the​ ​course.​ ​

Mount Saint Mary College ​has​ ​several​ ​academic​ ​tools​ ​open​ ​to​ ​us​ ​to​ ​help​ ​with​ ​test preparation. ​​In​ ​the​ ​Dominican​ ​Center,​ ​for example, you can gather some friends and ​reserve​ ​a​ ​study​ ​room. Surrounding​ ​yourself​ ​with​ ​the​ ​ones​ ​you​ ​love​ ​the​ ​most​ ​could​ ​help​ ​reduce​ ​a​ ​bit​ ​of​ ​that​ ​test​ ​anxiety feeling.​ ​While​ ​you’re​ ​all​ ​working​ ​hard​ ​studying though,​ ​don’t​ ​forget to​ ​take​ ​a​ ​few​ ​breaks!​ ​Take​ ​a walk​ ​around​ ​campus​ ​and​ ​enjoy​ ​the​ ​fresh​ ​air.​ ​ Continue Reading
