Yesterday I finished my final exams for 1st semester and I could not be happier that they are over. I enjoyed the semester and the material that was covered and I really enjoyed getting to know my professors and classmates, but the past two weeks of exams were extremely stressful. The format for the exams is what made them so stressful. In the past, my exams have always been multiple choice/short answer, but these exams were all essay questions. Each exam had about 5 essay questions and I had to choose 4 of them to answer in only two and a half hours.
Looking back on it now, I am expressed with all that I learned in class this semester. I hand wrote about 7-8 pages front and back for each exam and the format really made understand the material. I had to understand the theories, concepts, and terms I learned in class and be able to describe and apply them in my own words. Memorization is what got me through my past exams of multiple choice and short answer questions but comprehending and fully understanding the material is what allowed me to do well this semester. I am looking forward to my new classes next semester but for the next couple of weeks I get the chance to just focus on coaching and playing basketball!
