Study Tips

  • Manage your time by scheduling in study time. 
  • Use a daily, weekly, and monthly scheduler to help keep you on track. 
  • List when assignments are due and plan backwards from their due dates.
  • Create a space that is set aside for  your college work. 
  • Have the tools you need on hand to study such as highlighters, computer, paper, calculator, correct lighting, etc.
  • Study in short time blocks, no more than an hour at a time. Break larger assignments into smaller pieces.
  • Schedule in extra time for the unexpected (the car that breaks down or the printer that jams, etc).
  • Take notes in class and during reading - Review them! Ask yourself questions and then answer them in your own words.  Write questions you don't know the answer to in the margins and ask your instructor. 
  • Class attendance is important!  It is a time to ask questions, review information, and learn material that isn't found in your text books. 
  • Form a study group with others in your class.
