How do you organize studying for an important exam?
The way I prioritize studying for an important exam is by creating a study calendar. I begin studying 7 days before my exam. I write down all the important topics, and then I break up those important topics into 6 days, leaving the day before my exam to review all information. I write down what I need to study each day and dedicate a time in my day to study with planned breaks. I also place my phone in another room, so I don't get distracted.
