Tips for Good Study HabitsChen Wan Lim
Effective studying is critical to success in college, and many new college students quickly find that their prior study habits need major adjustments. To begin making the change, find a quiet, organized space to study. Study with a positive attitude and specific goals in mind.
If you need help, there’s no shame in asking. Your professors and peers are there to help you learn. You can develop excellent habits that help you navigate the difficulties of entering college.
What study habits are optimal depends on the student, the material being studied, and the goals of the students (which may range from getting a good grade to learning the material well). However, there are a number of general study habits that can be helpful to students across a wide range of subjects and goals.
This is because there is a certain degree of alignment between different study goals (learning material better usually helps one get a better grade) and there are important similarities in the process of learning different subjects.
