It’s that time of year that most college students dread – Finals Week. Yes, it can be stressful. Yes, it can unnerving. Yes, it can leave you with a sick feeling in your stomach and a feeling of dread as you walk around campus.

But don’t fret. We have several tips you can use so you can survive the dreaded finals week. These first few tips come from College Fashion, which offers nine tips:

1. ExerciseForDec.3Post
It can literally work out your frustrations but also help you stay healthy so you’ll be on top of your game.

2. Back up your work
Let’s face it. If you don’t back up your work, you know you’re going to lose a big research paper the night before you need to turn it in. Prevent that disaster by saving all of your work to a flash drive.

3. Eat power foods
While it may be tempting to skip a meal because you’re busy studying, don’t do it. If you’re hungry, you’re not going to be able to concentrate. And if you can’t concentrate, you’re probably not going to do very well on your test.

4. Get rid of distractions
Josh recommends you head to the library, where you won’t be tempted to give in to the distractions in your room such as your game system, TV, friends, cell phone, etc.

5. Sleep
If you’re tired, you’re not going to be able to think clearly. And if you can’t think clearly … yeah, you get it.

6. Practice, practice, practice
If you have questions at the end of the chapters in your textbook, answer them. Remember, practice makes perfect.
