Study Tips

Sometimes, studying can be both difficult and stressful. To help you learn how to study more effectively, here are some tips. We've also provided some solutions to common studying problems here to help ensure good grades. 

  • Know your learning style. Take a learning style quiz from a career specialist or counselor. This will help you plan study strategies.
  • Decide what to study, how long to study, or how much to study before you get started. Set a goal and stick to your deadlines.
  • If you’re a motivated student, complete difficult tasks first. For procrastinators, start off with the easy, interesting parts of the project. Reward yourself as you accomplish tasks.
  • Have special places to study. Take into consideration lighting, temperature, and the location of a desk, pen, paper, etc.
  • Study 30-50 minutes then take a 10-minute break. Stretch, relax, and have a snack. If you get tired or bored, move to a different location, subject, or task.
  • Allow plenty of time for reading, outlining, and writing papers. Use less time for memorization, review, and self-testing.
  • Use memory activities to review just before you fall asleep.
  • Study with a friend. Quiz each other, compare notes, and predict test questions.
  • Read all assignment and test instructions carefully. 
  • Speak up! If you need help, ask for it.
