Academic Success Tip - Using a Long Weekend to Your Advantage
Posted August 31st, 2010 by Kimberly K. Ballard
Create a structured study schedule and stick to it! If you have been “flying by the seat of your pants” on your time management, now is the time to create a schedule and stick to it for the remainder of the semester. If you follow a study schedule, you will be able to complete your reading and briefing one or two days before class (without rushing through the material), rather than the day of class. You will also ensure that you are devoting enough time to other study tasks, including reviewing your class notes, outlining, meeting with your study group, working on papers and projects, and completing practice questions. Perhaps the best part about following a study schedule is that you can have guilt-free time off because you have finished all of your study tasks for the week. And, your family members, significant others, and friends will know when you will be free. To create your own study schedule, use the blank time management schedule posted on the Academic Success webpage at http://www.law.louisville.edu/academics/academic-success.
