Midterms are stressful. Not only are you being tested on your knowledge, it oftentimes is the first time you’re seeing your professor’s testing style. Students sometimes become so overwhelmed by the mere thought of preparing for their midterms and writing their essays, they find it hard to start. While a certain amount of stress surrounding school can be beneficial (it means that you care!), too much stress can hinder your ability to succeed. Here are some simple ways to get started with studying.
So you’ve make your goals, you’ve planned out your midterm schedule, and you have designated study time. But, you don’t know how to study! Different learning styles study in different ways.

Whatever your learning style, here are a few tips for successful study sessions.
