  • Find a quiet place to study. Home or
  • Avoid doing your homework or studying in
        front of the T.V. You lose concentration.
  • Read your syllabus. If you do not
        understand something, ask your professor
        for clarification.
  • Study with a friend or have a study
        group. One or more group members are
        likely to understand something you do
        not. Share your notes and ask questions
        to each other.
  • Know what your learning style is.
        (visual, auditory, tactile/kinesthetic)
  • Give yourself a break. For example, five
        minute break after twenty-five minutes
        of studying.
  • To help remember information more
        easily, try to relate what you are
        studying to what you already know.


  • Begin with the most difficult
        assignments, and then advance to the
        easier ones.
  • Determine what is the best time for you
        to study. For example, in the morning,
        in the afternoon, or at night. Then
        study at that time every day.
  • After each study session, try to
        remember the main points and as many
        details as possible.
  • Do not be afraid to ask questions. This
        is a way to find answers. Ask your
        professors, librarians, or classmates.
  • Try to study when you are rested and
        alert. Sometimes last minute study is a
        waste of time.
  • Use all the sources you have to study.
        For example class notes and books.
