This week on the College Prep Podcast with Gretchen Wegner and her co-host Megan Dorsey:
Thanksgiving is coming up soon, as are the winter holidays.
If you get started studying for finals now (or over the winter holidays, if your finals aren’t until the end of January), you’ll save yourself a lot of headaches later — plus, you’ll learn the information better! Today Gretchen shares:
- How to put in more effort to studying without feeling like you’re working too hard
- The importance of testing yourself using “spaced retrieval”, and a few simple ways to do this over the holidays
- How to get yourself organized so you don’t waste time later finding important study tools
- A crucial tip for how to use your notes so that you’re actually learning (rather than just faking it)
- and more!
