Study skills tips
- Take good class notes. Consider rewriting your notes after class in order to make them more complete and to further aid in retention of course content. Consider serving as a peer notetaker. Students can sign up online.
- Use a digital recorder to record class lectures and take notes from (if your instructors allow you to do so). Recorders and other tools can be checked out from the library.
- Stay ahead of class readings. Highlight your text or take notes from the readings. Make an outline of the reading or chapters. Consider using software such as Read&Write as a study tool.
- Don’t procrastinate. Give yourself enough time to complete assigned readings, assignments, and to study for exams.
