OTU #16 - Final Exams, Sub-n-Rubs, Test Anxiety, and Exam Preparation Advice

Back massages - a great way to prepare for exams!

We've reached the end of the Fall Semester and the students are starting to take final exams! Everyone is getting pretty stressed out. We visit "Sub-n-Rubs", a campus event that helps students preparing for their exams.

Brian and Steve discuss some common sense advice about preparing for exams, both body and mind, strategies for answering different types of questions, and how to deal with test anxiety. Much of this information comes from the University of Illinois Counseling Center website, which can be found by clicking here.
