Effective and Efficient Learning Strategies Start Early : Start as early as possible on the study guide. Once you are done with the study guide, break your study time into pieces and try to study a little each day. Take out your study guide and read while waiting in line for the bus or coffee. Even five minutes here and there can make a big impact! Also, when you study, eliminate distractions to make sure you are completely focused on the task at hand. Which means, turn off the phone(s), shut off the TV, log out of facebook & email – I Know – seems impossible, but trust me – if you study smarter then you wont have to study harder. Make the time you spend studying really count! TIME MANAGEMENT = ORGANIZE YOURSELF WITH SCHEDULES. i.e., semester, weekly, monthly (more specific to plan for upcoming exams or term papers), and/or "to do" lists. WHY? TO SAVE TIME AND FOCUS. As you know it is really difficult to learn when you are not organized. Calendars are just one way to get you to focus on your studies. They also keep you in the habit of distributing your learning so as not to cram. NOTETAKING = NOTES WITH QUESTIONS PREDICTED IN THE MARGIN. WHY? you see(visual), write questions(kinesthetic), and answer out loud(verbal, auditory). Use color pencils/markers to make your notes more interesting and to highlight important topics/facts.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
