Dear Alan,

As the end of the school year approaches, get a head start on preparing for your final exams and term papers. Take time to enjoy the spring, but remember to stay focused on your goals.

Surviving Finals
You've studied hard all semester. Now it's time to review and get ready for final exams. Here are some tips for making the most of your study time:
Know what to expect. Find out what types of questions will be on the test and prepare appropriately.
Schedule your time. Come up with a specific plan for when and what you'll study and you'll be less likely to procrastinate.
Find your own style. What kind of studying works best for you? Do you prefer working with a partner or study group? Reading out loud? Using flash cards?
