How to Prepare For College Final Exams Using the Internet

How to Prepare For College Final Exams Using the Internet

It’s no surprise that the Internet has had a profound impact on the way we study and prepare for exams. Rather than spending hours in a library looking for relevant content, we can just fire up Google to find anything we want.

But the Internet isn’t just a great resource for information; it also has a huge selection of websites specifically designed to help you prepare for exams. You can get everything from study guides and flash cards to videos and blogs that will help you prepare. And some websites even feature free practice tests. Here are 12 websites that can help you prepare for your college final exams.

1. Rescue Me

1.

    How much time do you think you spend wandering around Facebook, Twitter, and other time-sucking social media websites? If you think it’s cutting into your study time, you can download Rescue Me. It will run in the background of your computer and keep track of where you spend your time so you can get a handle on it. If you find that you’re wasting way too much time, Rescue Me can temporarily block all of those websites.

    2. Duolingo

    2.

      Duolingo is a free app that lets you learn a new language (almost) effortlessly.

And if you’re not taking a language final, it can be a fun way to keep your brain engaged while still taking a break from actual studying.

                          10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

                          10 Steps For Success: Applying The Power Of Your Subconscious Mind

                          How big is the gap between you and your success?

                          What is the difference between successful people and unsuccessful people?

                          It is as simple as this: successful people think and talk about what they are creating, and unsuccessful people focus on and talk about what they’re lacking.

                          So how do you bridge that gap between wanting success and having your success? Let’s make an important distinction. You see, there is a big difference between “Wanting” and “Having” something.

                          Wanting: means lacking or absent. Deficient in some part, thing or aspect.

                          Advertising

                          Having: means to possess, to hold, to get, to receive, to experience.

                          You can have one OR the other, but not both at the same time with any particular object of your desire. You either have it or you don’t.

                          When it comes to your subconscious, if you’re focusing on the “wanting”, i.e. the not having, guess what, you will build stronger neural networks in your brain around the “wanting.” However, through the power of your subconscious mind, you can focus on the “having” as if it has already happened. Research has shown that your brain doesn’t know the difference between what you’re visualizing inside your mind versus what is happening out there in your reality.

                          This is a regular practice of elite athletes. They spend as much timing creating the internal mental imagery of their success playing out as they do actually physically practicing. This helps create both the neural pathways in their brain and the muscle memory to consistently deliver on that success.

                          Here are 10 “brain hack” steps for success that you can take to create your version of a happy life. Make these steps a regular habit, and you will be astonished at the results.

                          Advertising

                          Step 1: Decide exactly what you want to create and have

                          This is usually the biggest problem that people have. They don’t know what they want and then they’re surprised when they don’t get it.

                          Step 2: Write down your goal clearly in every technicolor detail

                          A goal that is not written down is merely a wish. When you write it down in full detail, you signal to your subconscious mind that you really want to accomplish this particular goal.

                          Step 3: Write your goal in simple, present tense words

                          …that a three year old can understand on a three-by-five index card and carry it with you. Read it each morning after you awake and just before you go to sleep.

                          Step 4: Backwards planning

                          See your goal achieved and identify all the steps required that it took to bring it to life. Making a list of all these steps intensifies your desire and deepens your belief that the attainment of the goal is already happening.

                          Step 5: Resolve to take at least one step every day from one of the items on your list

                          Do something every day, even if it is just one baby step, that moves you toward your goal so you can maintain your momentum.

                          Step 6: Visualize your goal repeatedly

                          See it in your mind’s eye as though it were already a reality. The more clear and vivid your mental picture of your goal, the faster it will come into your life.

                          Step 7: Feel the feeling of success as if your goal were realized at this very moment

                          Feel the emotion of happiness, satisfaction, and pleasure that you would have once you have achieved your goal. Visualize and feel this success for at least 20 seconds at a time.

                          Step 8: “Fake it till you make it!”

                          Confidently behave as if your subconscious mind was already bringing your goal into reality. Accept that you are moving toward your goal and it is moving toward you.

                          Step 9: Relax your mind

                          Take time to breathe, pray or mediate each day. Disengage the stress response and engage the relaxation response. A quiet state of mind allows your brain to access newly formed neural pathways.

                          Step 10: Release your goal to your subconscious mind

                          When you turn your goal over to the power of the universe and just get out of the way, you will always know the right actions to take at the right time.

                          Starting today, try tapping into the incredible power of your subconscious mind.Start with just one goal or idea, and practice it continually until you succeed in achieving that goal. Make it a game and have fun with it! The more lightly you hold it, the easier it will be to achieve. By doing so, you will move from the “positive thinking” of the hopeful person to the “positive knowing” of the totally successful person.
