STUDYING!!!

Hey everyone,

So as the first semester starts to pick up, we're approaching the time where a lot of professors are administering first exams. This week I have my first spanish and research II exams. So here are some (very true) studying tips from yours truly.

Tip #1 - Shut off the AIM/cell phones. It can be very tempting to go hang out or grab a late night snack, but if you're unreachable, you can't be tempted.

Tip #2- Utilize the library. Not only will you be un-findable, but you'll have a great studying environment.

Tip #3- Don't leave it until the last minute!!! Start studying in bits and pieces a few days before will save you time and it'll be a lot easier to recall information.

Tip #4- Study groups aren't for everyone! If you aren't the type of person to gain anything from a study group, politely decline your classmates. As much as a study group might help them, it might hurt you.

Tip #5- Take Breaks! Not long enough breaks for you to lose all the information you just learned, but for every hour of studying, take five minutes and check your facebook, dance around the room, get in a quick round of mario kart.. whatever is fun for you. It'll motivate you immensely. 


Then the usual tips, turn off music/televisions etc., don't stress... make flashcards...


Remember, college is a lot different than high school, and higher-level classes (300's, 400's) are different than first year levels, so pace yourself and be realistic about how much time it is going to take you feel comfortable with the material.


Well, I'm going to follow my own advice and start studying...

Thanks for reading,

Sam :)
