Study smarter, not harder!
Study Tips
  • Start early in the semester. It is very easy to let the first few weeks of a new semester pass by, and then - Surprise! - it's the middle of the term, and you're "hating life". Prevention is the only cure for this disease!
  • Form study groups. It is very helpful to have a group of fellow students with whom you meet regularly. The regular meetings will encourage you to keep up with the readings and homework, and discussing the lectures and assignments will often help you to clear up points of confusion early in the semester. Just think, if two heads are better than one, how much better three or four or more must be!
  • Have someone read over your written work before you turn it in. It is sometimes very hard to spot errors in your own work, even if the same errors would be obvious to you in someone else's work.
  • Take care of your body, and your mind will follow. If you are not healthy and happy, you will not be able to do your best work, and you certainly won't enjoy the work! This may seem obvious, but many students neglect this simple fact. So: Eat well, and sleep regularly; get some exercise; take a break now and then; learn to relax even when facing a deadline; and, most important, laugh a little!
  • Don't be afraid to ask for help. Most colleges have many resources available for students who are struggling, or who just have questions. See if your college has counselors, a learning center or a writing center, support groups for ESL and international students, etc. And then, use these resources - that's why they are there!
  • Find out about office hours offered by your professor or teaching assistants. Now, go to see them during these hours, even if you only need to ask simple question or address a minor concern, and to get to know them. You may learn a lot about what they want you to accomplish in their class, and they will be able to help you more when you need it.
  • Think creatively. A common American way of expressing this is "Think outside of the box." We all limit ourselves by making assumptions about what is possible or permissible. This is like living inside of a box. If you allow yourself to imagine that anything is possible, you may find that you come up with a more original solution to the problem in front of you.
