Exam week: a college student’s worst nightmare. Here are some tips to get you through the week without completely stressing out.

1. When you finally do decide to sit down and study, make sure you have everything you need or might need at hand. Getting up to find a notebook while you’re studying is just going to throw you off track.

2. Yes, it is important to cram as much information into your head as will fit, but remember that it is still important to take some study breaks. Don’t schedule your breaks — take them when you see that your attention span is waning.

3. Change up the scenery—spending an ENTIRE week in Davis is definitely not healthy.

4. Remember to sleep. If you’re pulling all-nighters, it will only be that much harder to pay attention to your exam.

5. Contrary to popular belief, exams are not the end of the world. You will make it through. Plus, once your done you barely need to think for the next month!
