Everyone always asks, “What is the best way to study?” Well to be honest…there isn’t one specific way. College classes are completely different from your high school classes and it’s up to you to figure out what works best for you. Now there are a few things that I could recommend to make things just a little bit easier. I hope these tips help!!
- Start in advance!!
You DO NOT want to be waiting until the night of to start, trust me we’ve all done it before and it is awful. Look at your syllabus and see when the next test is coming up and plan it in a way that you could study for an hour or two a day.
- Find a study buddy!
Two brains are better than one… and I personally have found this to be very true AND helpful. Finding at least one other person to study with will be so nice to bounce off ideas with and just talk things out that might not be making any sense. You also get to make new friends along the way!
- Go to office hours!
If you are studying and something doesn’t make sense, don’t wait until the day/night of the test to go ask for help. Go into office hours and find out what it is that you are getting confused on. The professors are more than willing to help you out! That is what they are there for.
