Preparing for examinations is a whole body experience, not just a matter of having effective study skills.
This is a self-help reflective manual for teenagers who wish to prepare holistically for the exam experience. This book is based on the reflective practice cycle and invites students to reflect on their lifestyle choices and daily habits to determine which areas need focus and attention.
The six areas they are invited to reflect upon are: SLEEP, EXERCISE, DIET, STATE (mental outlook), SUPPORT (levels of support given, received and needed to prepare for examinations) and SKILLS (daily practice of necessary exam skills).
Students then choose an area they wish to focus on, and are guided through daily reflections to plan changes that can be made. The students are then invited to record what changes they wish to make and how they plan on implementing them.
They then reflect upon the effect of the changes and are encouraged to decide which changes to keep in order to best enhance their ability to prepare holistically for their examinations.
Each reflective task takes less than ten minutes a day and provides the relevant information regarding whole-body exam preparation.
