General Learning/Study Strategies

Tips

Sometimes it can be hard to know where to start when studying.

1. Use the Power Study Hour/Intense Study Session, which outlines one of the best ways to study. The full study session is one hour, but is broken down like this:

  •   1-2 minutes: Set a goal (as specific as possible)
  •   30-50 minutes: Study with focus
  •   10-15 minutes: Take a break (walk, drink of water, quick snack)
  •   5 minutes: Review the material you just went over

2. Use the "Make Study Time Efficient" handout below to help diagnose your studying roadblocks.

3. Get enough sleep! It is important to have an average of 8 hours of sleep a night to help you become a successful student.
