1. Don't cram!
Cramming before an exam is not conductive in the long run. You are more likely to have a memory dump and be back to square one for finals week.
2. Focus on one subject at a time.. but not for long periods of time. If you feel mentally stuck, move on to a new subject.
3. Give yourself a break!
One professor suggests: "An hour a day, then go out and play." So spend an hour a day on each course, then stop for the day.
4. Turn off your phone!
Or at least put it on silent. You can also set a special ringtone for emergency calls from your family. Cell phone are incredibly distracting and the best way to procrastinate is to find distractions.
5. Whenever possible, try to get 8 hours of sleep a night. Better sleep habits usually lead to a higher GPA.
6. Be an active leaner!
Show up to class. Do your homework. Participate. Ask questions. Take notes. Pay attention!
7. Find a dedicated study group - people that aren't meeting to socialize but rather to help each other and hold each other accountable to get work done.
8. Read your textbooks!
And read them like a student...
1. Find the study questions at the end of the chapter.
2. Have a conversation with the text.
3. Write notes alongside important facts or ideas.
9. Use methods that work for you!
Flash cards, self-quizzing, teaching others, rhymes, images, ect. There are so many learning styles that trying only one might not work.
