How AI Helped Me Conquer Finals


As a student preparing for my finals, I wanted to make sure I had all the necessary knowledge to pass my exams. To do this, I decided to use the Feynman method and AI as well as org-mode to help me. First, I went through the slides and the book and rephrased the concepts in my own words. Then, I used AI to help me better understand some of the concepts. Although AI can be helpful, it is not always correct or helpful. It is very important that you understand how to use the information you find from AI to your advantage instead of simply relying on it.


I also used org mode to write down my notes. This allowed me to easily upload my notes to my website so that my classmates could have easy access to them. To further help me prepare, I also used AI to create mock exams for me to practice. This was very beneficial because it helped me identify areas where I needed to improve before the actual exam. By using the Feynman method, AI, and org-mode, I was able to prepare for my finals and feel confident in my knowledge going into the exams. It was a great way to make sure I had the best chance of passing.


I am currently putting together a more rigorous collection of what I did and the templates I made for others to use. So far I have python scripts for Quizlet and a chrome extension which I ran after I wrote up a best practices document for my setup. Although this allowed for much more efficient 'cramming', it would have probably been better to these methods over a longer period of time to prepare for these finals.
