Everybody is sliding into “studying for exams” mode. Time becomes a critical variable now. It is important to find time for all of your tasks. It is also important to be productive with that time. This week's tips will focus on how to get more time out of each day and be more productive during studying.
Tip #1: Evaluate your day for “lost” time. Look for time wasted in the following ways: unproductive time between classes; assignment time stretched to 3 hours when with more diligence it could have been finished in 2 ½ hours; delay in starting a project because “I have all day;” inefficient and scattered errand running or other non-school tasks; completion of chores or other non-school tasks during prime study time. If only ½ hour is captured each day of the week, it nets 3 ½ hours of extra study time.
