My first midterms were less than three weeks ago and now the second waves of midterms are here!! It's definitely stressful, especially how midterms are back to back without breaks in between to help you re-energized. My strategy is to tackle one at a time, study each one 3-4 hours a day and move on to the next. I don't think cramming is effective if you are taking classes that require you to learn and practice the material before hand. On top of all this craziness, telebears appointment is here to stress us out even more. I barely have time to work on my current classes and now how to worry for next spring!! Time management is essential to survive at CAL.
For those who are signing up for bio next spring, the process is different, so visit the integrative biology website and check all the details to make sure nothing goes wrong, eg, exam conflicts and waitlisting, etc. Also, don't wait until the last minute to get your advisor code. Come early, and speak with your advisor and ask any questions before your telebears appointment. If you sign up for a certain class, make sure to have a back-up, especially for core or popular courses that might fill up phase I. Plan your schedule to avoid exam conflicts because once you are in the course, it is very hard to make adjustments, especially in large under division science courses.
Good luck studying for midterms!
