Study Skills 101
Don't Skip Around
Many concepts build on each other
Take the time that is needed to learn each concept so that you can get to the next step
Just Get Started
Looking at a blank page is hard!
Just breathe deeply and start your project -- You'll be amazed at how quickly it goes from there!
An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.
Become an Expert
On all course requirements
On the syllabi, expectations, and due dates
Never say, "I didn't know it was due."
Don't Procrastinate - Prioritize!
Don't wait and cram - It doesn't help you learn or succeed
Make a list of assignments - Most to least important
Set deadlines and stick to them
Find Your Study Place
Quiet places, free of distraction
Use your campus' student services
Go to Class!
Sleeping in is tempting - Fight the temptation
Skipping too many classes can effect your comprehension, test scores and grades
College isn't as strict as high school - But you still have to go!
Strive for Good Grades
Don't settle for just a passing grade - Do your best!
Subjects are harder in college - Stay focused and prepared
If you get behind, seek out an academic tutor
For yourself and your actions
Acknowledge your mistakes and learn from them
College is for adults - and adults have to be responsible!
Make Time for Yourself
Even good students need a break!
Take time from studying to do something you enjoy
Have fun - But take care of your responsiblities first
