This week’s tips focus on how you can use your time efficiently and effectively for studying during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Once you decide your priorities, plot out on a calendar which tasks you will complete each day. Be realistic. Mark down the actual hours you will spend on each task. Consider the following possibilities:
- Listen to CDs in the airport, on the plane, or while driving.
- Review outlines while in the airport, or on the plane, or while waiting for family to arrive.
- Photocopy the pages you need to read rather than lugging all of your books with you.
- Ask a family member or friend to quiz you with flashcards at home or during a long commute.
- Get up earlier or go to bed later than family so that you can carve out time to study.
- Negotiate time to study when family/friends are doing other activities that do not need to include you.
- Schedule time with family and friends so that you know when you can study and they know when they will see you.
- Consider whether you can study in a different location than home in order to get time, space, and quiet for studying.
- Plan to take Thanksgiving Day off if possible. If you have too much to do, at least take a portion of the day off and have fun.
- Use the template calendar attached to plan your schedule.
