With finals week approaching stress levels around campus are high. We at 300 The Fenway wanted to provide some relief, so we asked the Center for Academic Achievement for some help. Study Skills Specialist Tina Brin offered up some of her most helpful study tips. Here are 6 tips Tina gives students to get them through exam period:

1. Take the time to "Time Manage."

Don't just dive into studying; organize what you want to study and when. Make a list or draw a chart: whatever works best for you. This will help stabilize your study routine and will slowly ease you into the material.

2. Set realistic studying goals.

3. Take lots of breaks.
