HINTS FOR BUDGETING STUDY TIME
Based on It’s About Time for Students, by Anthony G. Hall and Wayne R. Herlin
· Study is more efficient just before or just after class. One hour of study immediately after class is worth two hours a few days later.
· Vary the topics you study. Switch to another subject after two hours on one subject.
· Utilize odd hours for study. Those scattered one- or two-hour free periods between classes are easily wasted. Use them for reading and study.
· Plan unscheduled time to allow for unexpected assignments, tests, or other changes in your weekly plan.
· Plan to take a 5-10 minute break for each hour of study. Get up, stretch, get a drink of water, etc.
Remember, if you can’t follow your own schedule, you only rob yourself of that which you claim you want. You are not a slave to your schedule; rather, it is your slave to help you obtain what you want. We are the products of the way we have spent our time.
