The Eight Day Study Plan


This is a brief outline and a basic guideline for planning major test reviews. Remember that everyone uses slightly different methods when preparing for exams. This is intended only as a framework within which you should use techniques that work well for you.




Day 1

  • Find out if there are any old tests available at the reserve desk of the Library or elsewhere.
  • See how much material you will be responsible for in the test.
  • Carefully divide the material to be reviewed into four equal parts: A, B, C, D.
  • Allow yourself time to plan this to the best of your ability.

Day 2

  • Thoroughly review all material in Part A.
  • Create a study guide that integrates material from your text and from your lecture notes into an understandable form.
  • Identify main points in your Part A material
  • View your material from as many angles as possible: draw flowcharts, make comparison charts, concept maps, etc. Be as active as possible.
  • Ask yourself questions about the material, quizzing yourself on the main points as many times as possible.

Day 3

Repeat instructions for Day2, this time reviewing your Part B material.


Day 6

Review thoroughly all of your material: Parts-A, B, C, D.


Day 4

Repeat instructions for Day2, this time reviewing your Part C material.


Day 7

Review thoroughly all of your material: Parts-A, B, C, D.


Day 5

Repeat instructions for Day2, this time reviewing your Part D material.


Day 8

Review ALL Parts, paying closest attention to those areas that are still "fuzzy."


If you have any problems with the material, see your instructor.
