McGraw Finals Prep Packet
May 8, 2023

Final exam period is a crucial time for students. Not only may large portions of your grade be allotted to exams, this is also a time when a lot of studying and learning can happen. It’s also a physically and mentally demanding time in which pressures to perform can make students feel they must go all in on academics and sacrifice well-being.

In fact, you’ll learn more and perform to the best of your ability if you take care of your physical and psychological needs during reading period and finals. Being more purposeful, strategic, and efficient in your approach to learning and studying can help you carve out time for exercise, relaxation, sleep and doing other things that rejuvenate you—even if you may do them a bit less for a week or so. To that end, McGraw has assembled some resources to support you during this busy time.
