Tackling two sets of finals

Last week, Ghidotti Early College High School students had finals in their Sierra College classes. Ghidotti students had been studying for weeks for these tests and finally got to put their knowledge on paper.

Ghidotti students all study in their own way. Some simply read the textbooks, while others go into much more complex studying techniques. Many students use flash cards with key terms and equations on them, like junior Troy Heitzinger.

“You can use flash cards for pretty much anything,” he said.

Other students use online studying tools that quiz you or give practice problems. Various students review previous tests and notes taken during lectures. Some of the teachers will hand out study guides for the students to review before the tests.

Some students prefer to study like Korenna Yang, who said she uses study groups and has people quiz her.

Studying in groups is very common at Ghidotti. These students meet up with each other during breaks or after school to study for their tests. They talk to each other about misunderstood concepts and help figure out issues they are having with the homework.

Some students even decide to go into finals without studying at all, but many advise against this.

This week, Ghidotti students will be taking their high school finals.

Better get studying!
