Good Study Habits


If you've got them, great. If not — well, there's still time to develop them. Good study habits include these basics:

  • Always be prepared for class, and attend classes regularly. No cutting!
  • Complete assignments thoroughly and in a timely manner.
  • Review your notes daily rather than cram for tests the night before.
  • Set aside quiet time each day for study — even if you don't have homework or a test the next day!
