This week’s tips focus on how you can use your time efficiently and effectively for studying during the Thanksgiving holiday.
Be alert to your “highs” and “lows” in planning your study schedule. Do the hardest tasks when you are the most alert. It often helps to do the most difficult or most unpleasant task first so that it does not hang over you all day. Do more active tasks when you are feeling more drained: flashcards, practice questions, making graphics, etc. Read and review outlines when you are the most focused. Be aware of when you need a short break to restore your focus.
