    Having a Schedule……

    • Make a schedule - when do you do your best work?

    • Set aside a specific time of the day that you will complete homework assignments or review material

      • Specific times help combat procrastination

    • For some students, it is better to plan a period of time (i.e. – a half hour) than a specific time (7:30 to 8:00)

      • This will prevent you from staring at the clock when you should be doing work!

    Overcoming procrastination1

    Overcoming Procrastination

    • “One more day won’t make a difference, I’ll do it tomorrow”

    • “I work best under pressure”

    • “I’ll just watch 15 more minutes of TV”

    • “It won’t matter if I turn it in late, other people will turn it in late too.”


    Overcoming procrastination what do i do about it

    • Set realistic goals

    • Take a look at yourself

      • Indentify your goals, strengths and weakness

    • Study in small blocks instead of long time periods

    • Stay away from the phone

      • Turn it off and return text messages and calls once you are finished, those people will still be around!

    • Learn to say no

      • Turning down an invitation doesn’t mean you’ll never be asked again

    • Motivate yourself

      • Dwell on success, not failure

      • Try studying in a small group

    • Discipline yourself

      • Set priorities and use time wisely


    How do you study

    How do you study?

    Everyone is different --- you may have to try out several study techniques until you find which works best for you!

    • Flash Cards

    • Having a “Study Buddy”

      • One of the best ways to learn is to TEACH someone else

    • Creating an outline

      • Highlighting the most important facts to remember

    • Studying in “small chunks”

      • Dividing up the material to study in to small parts and making a schedule for when you will study each section

    • Re-writing notes

    • Using Acronyms

      • Ex. HOMES (Great Lakes) – Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie and Superior


    Studying effectively

    Studying Effectively

    • Space out your studying

    • Studying for periods of time that are too long will only cause you to become tired and/or lose concentration

      • Take a break when you need it!

    • Set study goals before you begin

      • A set number of problems or a set number of pages you want to accomplish

    • Cramming is better than not studying at all but it is NOT EFFECTIVE

      The more senses you involve while studying,

      the more you will remember!
