Study Tips

Try these study tips from Becoming a Master Student 12th edition and get off to a good start this semester:

  1. Study difficult subjects first: Tackle the difficult subjects first, when you are fresh, energetic and creative. This will leave the rest of your day feeling like a breeze.
  2. Use a regular study spot: Your nose knows and so does the rest of your body. Using the same study spot helps condition your mind and body to focus your attention more quickly and get to the task at hand.
  3. Take advantage of your ASC: Your academic support center has a wonderful learning environment, qualified tutors and resources to help you. Don’t wait until you are behind to get help, come by the ASC and stay ahead!
