Workshop Descriptions

Ace that Test!
Doing your best on tests/exams requires a plan. Each course and each exam is different and successful test performance is a process that begins way before the test is given and continues after the test is over. This workshop will discuss the three stages of test-taking and help you establish a test preparation plan that you can use in each of your courses. The time to start preparing for your next exam is NOW!

Managing Academic Pressure and Stress
Challenging classes, pressure to get good grades and juggling multiple responsibilities can all contribute to stress in college. High expectations (yours and others) and perfectionism can make this stress worse. This workshop will help you identify your personal sources of academic stress and learn strategies to manage it so that you can do your best!

A Final Exam Plan for Low Stress and High Success
Procrastination may be your middle name, but don't wait until a week (or a few days) before the final to begin your preparation! At this workshop, we will discuss test-taking tips and strategies specifically relating to final exams. Final exams can cause stress and anxiety levels to rise, even in the very best students. Come and identify strategies to deal with the stress that comes with taking tests.
