One more month of the semester is left. Meaning one more month till a few wonderful carefree months of summer vacation and freedom. However, that also means a few weeks left until the dreadful hectic stressful week that consists of final exams.
As a reminder finals week is scheduled on Monday May 12 – Thursday May 15. Each exam period allows students to have three hours to complete his or her final exam. The final exam schedule can be found on page 21 of the registration guide on the Honolulu Community College website. http://www2.honolulu.hawaii.edu/sites/www2.honolulu.hawaii.edu/files/registration-guide-spr14.pdf#page=21
The exam period is based on the start of a class. For example, if a student has a class that meets on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:00 a.m then that student’s exam period is on Monday May 12 from 8:30 a.m to 11:30 a.m.
Since there are a few weeks left until finals week start studying for it now. If there is a topic that you need help with find the help now. Do not wait until the very last minute because chances are you will not be able to retain the information learned for the final.
