Successful students have good study habits. They apply these habits and it definitely works for them. the following study habits are necessary for success to be achieved.
Successful students:
  1. Try not to do too much studying at one time.
    If you try to do too much studying at one time, you would get tired and your studying will not be very effective. Space out the work you have to do over shorter periods of time. Taking short breaks will restore your mental energy.
  2. Plan specific time for studying.
    Study time is time spent on something related to schoolwork. It can be completing assigned reading, working on a paper or project, or studying for a test. Schedule specific time throughout the week for your study.
  3. Try to study at the same time each day.
    Studying at the same time each day establishes a routine that becomes a part of your life, just like sleeping and eating. When a scheduled study time comes up during the day, you will be mentally prepared to begin studying.
  4. Setting specific goals for study times.
    Goals will help you stay focused and monitor your progress. Simply sitting down to study has little value. You must be very clear about what you want to accomplish during your study times.
  5. Start studying when planned.
    You may delay starting your studying because you don't like an assignment or think it is too hard. A delay in studying is called "procrastination." If you procrastinate for any reason, you will find it difficult to get everything done when you need to. You may rush to make up the time you wasted getting started, resulting in careless work and errors.
  6. Working on assignments they find most difficult first.
    Your most difficult assignment will require the most effort. Start with your most difficult assignment since this is when you have the most mental energy.
  7. Review their notes before beginning an assignment.
    Reviewing your notes can help you make sure you are doing an assignment correctly. Also, your notes may include information that will help you complete an assignment.
  8. Tell their friends not to call them during their study time.
    Two study problems can occur if your friends call you during your study time. Firstly, your work is interrupted. It is not that easy to get back to what you were doing. Secondly, your friends may talk about things that will distract you from what you need to do. Here's a simple idea - turn off your cell phone during study time.
  1. Call another student when they have difficulty with an assignment.
    This is a case where "two heads may be better than one."
  2. Review their schoolwork over the weekend.
    Yes, weekends should be fun time. But there is also time to do some review. This would help you a lot because it makes you fully prepared to continue with studies for the new week. And by so doing, nothing is left behind.
These ten study habits can help you throughout your education. Make sure they are your study habits. What is it you are lacking in all these? Work on it and join the group of successful students.
