Studying can a be smooth or very bumpy experience! How can you navigate this challenge? There are many do’s and don’ts when it comes to studying, here are a few tips to keep you on the path to success!DO:
Figure out a time management system that works for you. There are many options out there: you can use a calendar, planner, sticky-notes, or even make a list of your upcoming assignments.
Determine how much time you need to complete each task (study for that test, get sources for that paper, outline that paper, write the paper etc.). Make a schedule and try to stick to it. Assess your tasks and try to break them into smaller parts, it will make the whole assignment easier.
Evernote can help you organize all the steps and keep you on target.
Find a comfortable environment. If it is too hot, too cold, too noisy, too quiet (you get my point) this will distract you from the task at hand.
Come to the library, there is a variety of group and individual study areas available, come find your comfortable environment.
Plan ahead! You can make an appointment with the Writing Center or submit to “The Write Site” on Sakai for review. Appointments book quickly and you have to allow 48 hours for your paper to be reviewed via “The Write Site”.
