Academic Success Tip - Catching up on Reading

You are in your ninth week of classes now.  Today's tip addresses the question that I've been asked by a lot of students lately:  What is the best way to catch up if I am behind in my reading for one or more courses?

  • Make your priority staying on top of the current readings for class.  You will then be able to follow the class discussions.
  • Fit in back reading as you can in small chunks (one case at a time). 
  • On the weekend, read first for your Monday and Tuesday classes for the upcoming week.  Then use extra time for catch-up reading.

As you approach the Thanksgiving Break, you do not want to be behind in your reading or your outlining.  Stay focused now and get caught up so you will be in the best position possible when doing your core studying for finals.
