Management

Motivation

Time

  • Learning takes time, but you have to make time by blocking out your weekly schedule and finding the best times to study. Use a planner to keep track of daily tasks and activities. Write detailed to-do lists to keep yourself on track in accomplishing your goals.

Note-taking

  • Remember, you should MAKE notes, not take notes. notes are most helpful when they involve active listening, and you return to them on a regular basis. Make sure to engage with your notes when reviewing by asking questions, speaking aloud, reorganizing, and discussing with classmates.

Reading

Test taking

  • Tests are one of the most intimidating aspects of college, but with good preparation and understanding of how testing works, you can come out ahead. Remember to communicate with your professor to know what to expect, and always start studying at least 5 days ahead of the test date.
