Successful Practices: 1) Read your course outline. Pay attention to dates. Pay attention to learning objectives – these are meant to be of primary importance in your course. 2) Recognize that studying actually is important in college. The more you study the more likely you will do well now in the course and later in life when you need to apply this information. a. Studying requires effort. i. You need to plan time with no distractions. ii. You need to make it important, for a short period of time you have to give up other activities. b. Undergraduate education requires a minimum of 2 hours a week for each hour of class (each credit). So in this course you would calculate 3 hours a week of class and 6 hours of study! That is 9 hours a week. c. If you find you are spending a lot of time and not doing well, you may not have the best studying practices. Think about a tutor or “google” some sites to find out about outlining notes and books, how to tell what is most important in reading etc. 3)
