Student using study tips to prepare for finals in library

Coming from a California public school, I never experienced any real academic challenges because of the level of education I had been receiving. So when I came to Bob Jones, I quickly discovered how unprepared I was for this next journey in my life. There were two ways I could have responded: quit and transfer schools, or stay and learn the skills to deal with this new stage of my life. As you can probably tell, I chose the latter. By choosing to stay, I had to learn how to study. So here are some tips that will help you study more efficiently.

Have a daily to-do list.

This list will help you organize. And as you check things off, you’ll be glad to see that you’re getting the important things accomplished.

Go somewhere quiet!!!

I don’t know about you, but I know I need a quiet place to get things done. On the one hand, I enjoy the library space.  On the other hand, a nicer option (if you have access to a car) is to go to a coffee shop.

Know where your syllabus lives.

Always keep your syllabus handy, and if you can, get a planner to remind you of assignment due dates.

Follow these tips, and you’ll find your study times become much more efficient.
