Study observations

Just a few observations I've made over the years on studying for law school exams.

There is no right or wrong way to study. Everybody studies differently and should do whatever works for them.

Most professors have given or will give their students a pretty good idea of what they expect from an exam answer.

Drink plenty of water and get a good nights sleep. Eat properly and make time for exercise.

It is OK to take a time out to clear the mind and relax a little. In the past the library has put out puzzles and games to help students take a break.

If you are having difficulty understanding a concept, term, etc. in one of your classes, ask someone. You may be part of a study group or ask in class (while you can) or reference librarians who know how to find answers.

It is easy to stress out during the exam period, so take a deep breathe and let it out slowly. Do this several times.

None of this is really new, but sometimes it helps to be reminded.
