ASC Study Tip (week of 10/22)

Keep your study area clear of items that could distract you. Have necessary materials close at hand. Concentrate! If you suddenly think of something else you need to do, jot it down to put it out of your mind and return to it later. Turn off notifications and anything else that might disturb you.

We suggest trying the Pomodoro Technique. Check out another video about this technique and how to stop procrastinating.

ASC Study Tip

Most effective studying is active, testing and questioning yourself (not passive like just re-reading notes/ textbook) and spaced throughout the week.

Think about using even short intervals of time effectively (like between classes.)
In 15 minutes you could:

· Review lecture notes and highlight the key ideas.
· Quiz yourself on the key terms in a chapter.
· Write a summary of a few paragraphs from an article/textbook.
· Read a brief article.
· List all the things you have to do later/ tomorrow.
