You`re smart! You`re in University! And YOU can DO THIS!!!
How can you be as on top of things like Carlisle? Manage your time wisely –Cramming rarely helps anyone, start studying well in advance. Daily reviews are great! –Take study breaks!!!

Want to be as focused as Edward? Study in a quiet place, with few distractions Choose a time you know works for you Avoid studying when hungry or tired Multitasking with studying = bad plan Break large tasks into smaller ones Try to relax Keep the worries out of your head, thoughts can be distracting

Need Jasper to calm down your test anxiety? Use good study techniques to master the subject Dont psych yourself out! Sleep well and eat before the exam Relax during the test Dont worry about students finishing before you Once your test is written, stop worrying about it. Whats done is done.
Need some guidance as to where the treaty lines are? (aka study spaces?) The Killam (atrium, study commons and stacks) The McCain (fireplace lounges & work area in the back) Newcombe Study Lounges Shirreff Hall Cafeteria Cobourg Coffee, Second Cup, Starbucks etc.
Need to keep your memory fresh, like Emmett? Make acronyms –Acronymic sentences are great too!
