spend two hours on the next step or prewriting activities. Since you have a lot of time open Tuesdayafternoon, you decide that’sthe best time to reserve to write the first draft; you block out three or fourhours. You make a note on the schedule to leave time open that afternoon to see your instructor duringoffice hours in case you have any questions on the paper; if not, you’llfinish the draft or start revising.Thursday, you schedule a last block of time to revise and polish the final draft due tomorrow. If you’resurprised by this amount of planning, you may be the kind of student who used to think, Thepaper’sdue FridayI have enough time Thursday afternoon, so I’llwrite it then.What’swrong with that?First, college work is more demanding than many first-year students realize, and the instructor expectshigher-quality work than you can churn out quickly without revising. Second, if you are tired on Thursdaybecause you didn’tsleep well Wednesday night, you may be much less productive than you hopedandwithout a time buffer, you’re forced to turn in a paper that is not your best work.

Saylor URL: Saylor.org96Figure 2.6 Example of a Student’sWeekly Planner Page with Class Times and Important StudySessionsHere are some more tips for successful schedule planning: Studying is often most effective immediately after a class meeting. If your schedule allows, block outappropriate study time after class periods. Be realistic about time when you make your schedule. If your class runs to four o’clock and it takes you twenty minutes to wrap things up and reach your study location, don’tfigure you’llhave a fullhour of study between four o’clock and five o’clock.
Saylor URL: Saylor.org97Don’toverdo it. Few people can study four or five hours nonstop, and scheduling extended timeperiods like that may just set you up for failure. Schedule social events that occur at set times, but just leave holes in the schedule for other activities. Enjoy those open times and recharge your energies! Try to schedule some time for exercise at least three days a week. Plan to use your time between classes wisely. If three days a week you have the same hour freebetween two classes, what should you do with those three hours? Maybe you need to eat, walk acrosscampus, or run an errand. But say you have an average forty minutes free at that time on each day.Instead of just frittering the time away, use it to review your notes from the previous class or for thecoming class or to read a short assignment. Over the whole term, that forty minutes three times aweek adds up to a lot of study time.
