Studying is something both high school and college students do just as much as attending school. In both college and high school, there are honors classes that are more challenging, but when passed, look really good on paper. For classes in high school, a student can compare the amount of studying per week with time in class. In college, a student studies twice the amount of time they were in the class for the week. For example, if a student attended a three-hour class twice a week, they would have twelve hours of studying plus homework. In high school, teachers may allow time for homework if there are no lesson plans for the day. There is no time for homework during college classes because there is a set schedule on what will be discussed that day. If the professor completes the lesson early, students are released sooner than anticipated. In high school, however, students are rarely released early because of the bell schedule. Studying in high school is primarily based on textbook material and class

notes. Studying for tests in college requires the student to read the textbook, writing assignments, and articles that are not in their textbook. In summary, there are similarities and differences between high school and college, but there is a level of responsibility and maturity required in college to successfully navigate the changes in class schedule, learning environment, and financial commitment. Pursuing secondary education after high school helps with growth and maturity, but more importantly, helps to secure a promising career.

    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.
