Academic Success Tip - Find Time for Exam Preparation

Tip #3:  Become aware of when you lose focus.  Determine why you are losing concentration.  Then, determine whether you can correct the situation.  Do you need to make your reading more active by asking questions as you read?  Do you need to move to a quieter place?  Do you need to write a reminder note so that you stop worrying about forgetting something?  Are you hungry and need a quick snack?    If you cannot re-capture your focus, then take a short break and come back once you are refreshed.
