Finals Study Tips Part 2

One way I remember things is to imagine what the topic reminds me of.


  • If it's a word, I'll try and emember who said it so that I can constantly recognize what the word is.

  • If it's a math subject, I'll relate it to a situation, like I want to paint my room but how much of an area to cover... things of that sort.


This works best for me because I am a visual person. The things that I learn in class, I have to look and see it in order for me to comprehend.
