Want to Ace your Exams? Exam Prep Workshops on December 5th and 7th

Posted by Tim on November 30, 2018 in Community Announcements, Event, Stress Relief, Workshops

Two identical workshops will be offered on study skills and exam taking skills just in time for final exams.  The sessions will take place on December 5 at 6pm in Bonner 414 and on December 7 at 4pm in Davis 101.  Students will learn how to retain more information and how to prepare themselves so that they can do their best on finals.  It’s all free and no pre-registration is required.  All the students have to do is arrive on time and listen.  I started using these tips in my last two years of undergrad school and never went below a 3.0 again.
