Make use of the time you have between classes to study, review material, or do research in the li- brary. This will free up evening and weekend time. Study the “worst first” Students naturally avoid that which they find unpleasant, so they often study their least favorite subject last (if at all). This is a mistake. The end of a study session is when you are most fatigued, and if you wait until the last minute, you may be rushed or run out of study time. So study your least favorite subject when you are most alert and unrushed—at the begin- ning of your study session. Space your studying A good rule is 30-45 minutes of study followed by a 5-10 minute break. During your study sessions, don’t do anything else. If you can stay focused, you will be able to get a great deal accomplished. Avoid back-to-back classes On large campuses you may need 10-20 min- utes to get from class to class. Back to back classes give you little time to get to your next class, and they make it almost impossible to arrive early or stay after class for questions. Only schedule back to back classes if they are located in the same building or very nearby. Learn to use Microsoft Word MS Word is the standard in word processing.
