It’s nearing everyone’s favorite time of year again. Finals week! There’s no doubt that finals are stressful, but there are ways to make sure that you are ready to tackle those fiendish tests. Then, with them all handed in to your professors, that cement block of stress will lift from your shoulders and you can welcome summer with a free and happy heart.
While I know that finals week is about 1-2 weeks away for most folks, I want to post the links to this series that I did on testing tips for those of you who are starting your cramming now. Also, what’s the use of studying tips if I post them after, or even during, finals week? Good luck, and I hope that my tips help you to crush those tests!

Good studying! I was going to say good luck, but it’s not a matter of luck, is it?
Thanks! Very little luck is typically involved. So much of grades and studying boils down to knowing the tricks and being willing to do hard work.
Listen and take good notes. But listen to me. I thought PHDs were post hole diggers until I was 26.
Lol, well, if the job market doesn’t pick up by the time I get my PhD, then I might need to take a job as a post hole digger.
I wish I could give you an optimistic look ahead for the job market. I dropped out of the struggle a long time ago: I stayed out of debt, never used credit cards, kept my wants within my means, and didn’t participate in the machine anymore than necessary. Just remember, what ever they are selling on TV, whatever they are hawking through the mail, is not good for you. The good news is that there’s no substitute for a good education, with that you’ve got a leg up, so you’ll do fine.
That’s good advice regarding people selling things. I will definitely remember that. Unfortunately, “good education” often ends up being heavily dependent upon the individual. I remember I had two different college professors talking about the same subject, and each preached (not presented, but preached) polar opposite views. After some of my own research, I discovered that the truth was somewhere in the middle. I guess that shows that education is not exactly a spectator’s sport.
You’ll have to get used to seeking the truth on your own; it rarely backs up agendas–too messy.
So true, so true.
