Albany’s rent proposals will put
building contractors out of work.

Albany’s rent proposals will make it impossible for many property owners to afford to
maintain and improve their buildings – the majority of which are over 70 years old.
That means thousands of electricians, plumbers and other contractors who work in
these buildings will be out of work. Albany should protect these jobs.

Dear Pat,
It’s never too early! In fact, students who start preparing for nals weeks ahead

have an advantage. Even though that’s hard for most teenagers to understand, it
makes sense. Share the following with your son.

To prepare for nal exams do the following:
• Place the name of each exam on the date it will be given on your calendar. Be
sure to specify if the exam is given in the morning or afternoon.
• en count the number of days from today to the date of each exam on the cal-
endar. From that number, deduct the number of days you will not be able to study.
For example, every Sunday is booked up with sports or other activities, or June 5 is
your recital, or June 9 is your cousin’s wedding. Don’t study then. It’s not realistic
and if you start to prepare for tests early, there is no need to drag your books with
you while you play ball or dance at the wedding. You can relax and have a good time
because you planned ahead. No less will you ruin a great time, but you won’t learn
that much. It’s been shown that studying for test while multitasking lowers your
grade and takes longer to learn the material.
• Now that you have a realistic estimate of the number of days you have until your
tests, put the number next to the test on your calendar. Ex: English, 40 days; Math,
38 days, etc.
• Next, talk to your teachers to nd out if they, or any other teachers, are having
review sessions. Mark the dates on your calendar and make every e ort to at-
tend them. en gather all the notes, handouts, whatever, that you have gathered
throughout the year and put them all in one place, one notebook, one folder, one
section of a le folder. Organize them into topics and the topics into smaller chunks
of three to ve pieces of material you need to learn. en learn each small chunk of
material each day. In addition, review the material you learned on previous days. Use
learning strategies that worked for you in the past. You need to practice everything
you’re learning over and over again in order to move it into your long-term memory.
As that saying goes, “If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.”
Finally, if you su er from one or all of what I call the three “tions”—disorganiza-
tion, lack of motivation, procrastination, here’s some advice to help you succeed.
Disorganized? If so, write everything down that you need to do. at means ev-
erything. en, next to each “to do” item, write the day and approximate time you’ll
do it. is will get that overwhelmed feeling out of your head and onto a list. Follow
the list, and you’ll stay on top.
Unmotivated? If so, think about where you want to be in ve or 10 years. Write
down the short-term goals, the steps you must rst accomplish in order to achieve
your long-term goal. Refer to them regularly, but especially when you nd yourself
Inclined to procrastinate? If you always nd something else to do rather than
start preparing for your nals, nd a study pal who doesn’t su er from procrastina-
tion. By working with someone else, you’re more likely to succeed at getting your
studying done.
