This too shall pass.

Midterms and sorry your alive? Midterms are stressful and if you are in the weeds now, there isn’t a lot you can do but there are some things you can.

Get organized now. You might keep telling yourself that it is too late, but it isn’t. It’s all still happening and now is the perfect time to take care of it. List all of the work you have to do and make a note of how long each thing is. Plug things into your schedule according to deadline.

You will probably have more time than you realize, but if you don’t at least you can keep things organized and know what it takes to get you through to the end of midterms.

Eat as well as you can, lots of fruits and veggies and don’t feel bad about indulging. The extra food feeds your brain, gives comfort, and helps you stay alert with less sleep.

Get some exercise. 15 minutes once or twice a day will help you perk up and stave on some of the stiffness and strain (especially eye strain) that accumulates during times like this and leads to aches and pains, including headaches.

Drink water. Whatever else you drink, drink water. If you’ve just had another coffee and feel even more sleepy, it could be minor dehydration. You might find that a glass of cool water perks you up more than the last coffee did.

Pawn it off on us. Any assignment, even a small one, you purchase through us can help you get another two or three hours sleep one night and help you tackle the next day refreshed and ready to go or is more time to devote to studying for a critical exam.

Good luck and let us know if you have any questions.

Exams!

Hi for the future I would like to know the best way to study exams like any exam... I'm trying this few idea it's just doesn't work out for me. Thank u :)

How to read:

  • Read for 20 or 25 minutes and then take a 5 to 10 minute break.
  • Your break should NOT be where you were reading. Move away from the book or computer. Get a drink of water, do 30 seconds of exercise (roll your shoulders, toe raises, neck rolls).
  • Don’t read for more than two hours. Once you hit two hours, take a twenty minute (at least) break. Switching from reading PDFs to watching videos on your laptop is not a break.

How to take notes on readings:

  • Do not use a highlighter or mark things for later. If you read something you want to remember, write it out (by hand) on your notebook. Don’t copy; put them in your own words.
  • When you are done with your session, take a half hour to two hours away from your notes, and then read through them. Do they make sense? Do you understand what you are referring to? If your notes aren’t adequate, fill them in.

Taking notes in class:

  • Write down whatever strikes you during class, but be brief, keep your attention on the lecture and absorbing the content.
  • As soon as possible after the class is over, sit down with your notes and fill them out. Write what you remember, and use your textbooks or your Google skills to fill in things you didn’t quite understand.
  • If you look at your notes, read your textbook, and check out the Wiki page but still don’t understand, email the professor and tell them you don’t understand a concept. Ask them for help and recommendations.

Advice for people with normal money who don’t want to go back to school:

As a follow up to the previous question, let’s talk a little about how to deal with going to school when it’s the right decision, but you don’t want to.

Fretting over this might be the province of the young, so I’m going to direct my advice that way. Get over it. I know, that sucks, but that’s the most important thing. If you find yourself thinking, “I just want to work,” that’s actually all you need to solve your problem. Realize that school is just work, it’s the start of your career, and treat it the same way. Do it and move on, so that you can get on with the rest of your life. And always take the minimum amount of loans that you need. Always.

Rich people problems, solved;)

OK, this isn’t really a problem. Well it is a problem, but it feels like an easy one. The problem is that I don’t like the solution and I’m having trouble convincing myself to do. I have a BA and a good job. I can afford to get a Masters, as in, I could pay out of pocket for two classes per term and be done 24 to 28 months. My contract is such that I’d get a raise when I was three-quarters done and again when I was completely. I’m not even done describing my “problem.” I’d earn the money I spent back within five years. My position is a really good one, right? Except that I don’t want to go back to school. I hate it. I’d rather slam a fork into my hand. Most importantly, I’d rather make less money. Please, talk me out of being stupid. I know it’s a mistake to put it off (it only gets more expensive and I spend less time earning more) and slows me down. I realize you will probably recommend paying a writer and/or researcher, but what else can I do to make this more appealing.

Ha! You are right, I do recommend paying a researcher or writer to take the pressure off and make returning to school less odious.

It sounds like you are financially pretty well off and that you also have a budget, one that accounts for the long term. You might even be frugal? In your special case, I recommend indulging yourself in a few places during the time that you are in school. Consider smaller student loans. Paying them off is a credit builder, something you know, and though the bank will throw more money at you than you need, you don’t have to take it. Take out a small loan and consider hiring someone to clean your house. Yep. Make life easier since you are going to be working and going to school full time. Eating in restaurants is nice, but you might find that eating out/on the run is not any cheaper than using a company that provides pre-made meals for the week.

Maybe you can’t afford a personal chef, but if you can afford to hit a restaurant four nights a week and buy your coffee out every day, you can probably use that money to have someone do your grocery shopping and make a few meals for you. You can eat healthier, closer to home, and at about the same cost. Good food and an orderly house are usually the first thing to go (along with sleep) when we’re over-extended. Get those things covered and you’ll probably find those two years aren’t so bad.
