Sheila’s Answer

Hi Rajendra:

Many students realize that their high school study habits aren’t very effective in college. This is understandable, as college is quite different from high school. The professors are less personally involved, classes are bigger, exams are worth more, reading is more intense, and classes are much more rigorous. That doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with you; it just means you need to learn some more effective study skills.

Here are a few ideas for active studying:

• Create a study guide by topic. Formulate questions and problems and write complete answers. Create your own quiz.
• Become a teacher. Say the information aloud in your own words as if you are the instructor and teaching the concepts to a class.
• Derive examples that relate to your own experiences.
• Create concept maps or diagrams that explain the material.
• Develop symbols that represent concepts.
• For non-technical classes (e.g., English, History, Psychology), figure out the big ideas so you can explain, contrast, and re-evaluate them.
• For technical classes, work the problems and explain the steps and why they work.
• Study in terms of question, evidence, and conclusion: What is the question posed by the instructor/author? What is the evidence that they present? What is the conclusion?

Others have shared some great advice from the CV Prof community that is very insightful. Best of luck to you!

Richard’s Answer

Go to class. Plan to spend 2-3 hours studying for every hour of lecture. Attend your professor's office hours and any TA review sessions. If there is a test bank, use that as a study tool to understand what your professor wants you to focus on for the test.


Some subjects can be learned with "gamification." Try duolingo for learning a language for example.

Herman’s Answer

Hi Rajendra,

It's good to have a schedule and follow it. You could also remove yourself from the distraction by going to the library or a cafe to study.

One of the easiest ways for me to focus in school while I was in college was to look at the tuition bill. No kidding, it is really expensive and it made me really value my education.

Other ways were to envision the future after your education, and imagine where your education can get you.

Best regards,
Herman

Raghunandan’s Answer

Discipline and setting short goals on a daily basis to achieve will help you focus on achieving desired results. It is important to practice and train the mind to focus on one thing at a time and "strive to become the best" in the short time.

Become SMART: i,e;
S= Specific goal to be achieved
M= What is your measurement of success, for ex; scoring in practice tests
A=Achievable (gain confidence gradually) it is hard to get 100 on day 1 of your practice test
R=Repeatable
T=Time bound (ensure that you achieve the goal in a duration comfortable to you and not due to external pressure)

Over a period in time, you would start gaining self-confidence and become better by the days
Thank you comment icon Hi Raghunandan: Great advice on the S-M-A-R-T principle. Thanks for sharing. Sheila Jordan
