#TipTuesday To better prep for finals week, we asked Pilots' peer assistant how they prep for finals and for their tips.

McKenna Parker says to go somewhere other than your room to study. The library or some place that you will not get distracted is ideal. McKenna also advises students to save any gift cards they might receive throughout the year for finals week.

Brent Weaver says to make sure you take breaks. He recommends doing something completely away from academics.


Sarah Watkins is an advocate of teaching someone else in order to learn. "Teach someone else how to solve math problems," said Sarah.

During the week of finals, don't stress yourself out trying to study for everything in one day. Print out this schedule below and plan it accordingly.
For example: If you have one final on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. and none on Monday take advantage of Monday and the time before the exam.
Also, make sure you plan in break times and times to eat don't push yourself to study all day without taking care of yourself. #TipTuesday Coming next week: Study advice from the tutors!
