Second Round of Midterms
Preparing for the second round of midterms can either be a positive or negative experience. These two different experiences can result depending on whether the first round of midterms went well or not and whether one is motivated during spring break. Last year, I spent my entire spring break in Berkeley preparing for my midterms. During that time, it wasn't the most enjoyable experience but the reward I gained by scoring well on my midterms made by spring break studying justified.
I believe that the second round of midterms are the most important as this determines your grade going into the final. If the first midterm went well, this is a chance to solidify your grade but if your first midterm didn't go well, this is a change to bring it up and be within striking distance of a desired grade with a good final exam score. As a result of the second midterm being more important, more stress and anxiety may result. My suggestion to remedy this is to begin studying earlier. Studying early allows me to go through the material at a suitable pace and formulate questions which I couldn't normally do if I didn't study early.
