McGraw's Undergraduate Student Advisory Council 

Apply for a position. 


Adapt to Succeed 
Nic Voge, Associate Director 

Last week we introduced you to some useful guidelines for reflecting on exam questions and your performance on them to maximize learning FROM exams. This kind of analysis won't, however, tell you how to adapt your study methods. You'll need to reflect on your processes leading up to the exam, not just the exam itself for that. 

As you study in the second half of the term, there are some other questions to ask yourself. How did I study for this course in the first half of the term? What do I want to continue doing? What do I want to change? How can I adapt my study approach to each course based on what I've figured out? .... 

Go to McGraw's handout, "What Can I Do NOW to Prepare Myself for Dean's Date and Final Exams?" and make an appointment for a learning consultation to develop an effective approach to all your courses.

McGraw Profiles 

Meet Theresa Meyer, Learning Consultant 

Hey there! I'm Theresa and I'm a junior from Durham, North Carolina. I'm currently majoring in Computer Science as a B.S.E. student and am also working to fulfill pre-med requirements. As someone who has switched from B.S.E. to A.B. and back and considered quite a few concentrations, I have an array of knowledge about different types of courses at Princeton. Along with being a McGraw Consultant, I'm an EMT, co-President of the Women in Science Colloquium (we host informal dinner discussions with female scientists), an Outdoor Action leader, a member of the 2 Dickinson street co-op, and a Student Technology Consultant. With such varied activities and academics, I have adapted to a wide array of demands and know how to get the most out of prerequisite classes and distribution requirements. I really enjoy helping other students practice effective time management, learn to work more efficiently, and figure out how to get the most out of the classes they're taking. I want to help students develop their own personalized strategies and techniques to reach their full potential. I love the McGraw center and I hope I get the chance to share my experiences with you!
