Prepare for exams

Research Librarian Catherine Biondo has updated her guide to help you prepare for law school exams. It contains links to study aids, past exams, research guides, ideas for study breaks and wellness, the HLS Registrar’s exams information site, and pictures of the late lamented Grumpy Cat in full exam denial mode.

Keep calm and carry on

Did you know that the Harvard Center for Wellness offers Harvard community members a wealth of wellness resources? Offerings include courses on yoga, meditation, and more; bodywork such as massage and acupuncture; a list of quiet places on campus; and free recorded meditations. Tap into a few of these to keep centered during this stressful season.

Take a break!

Had enough of exams? Take a break! Research librarian Catherine Biondo has created a guide filled with great ideas for study breaks around campus and farther afield. Ideas include getaways, tourist activities, movies and books, games, humor blogs, virtual happy hours, and much more.
