Study Tips For Finals Week

March 5, 2014 | Author: | Posted in Business

Who hasn’t gone into a college student’s dorm and about thrown up because of all of the leftovers and crazy stuff growing under all the books and unwashed clothes?

The most wonderful, and perhaps only wonderful, thing about finals week is that it is the last hurrah of a semester, and once it is successfully completed, you can take a break, breathe easy, and have fun. With that in mind, studying for finals can be a slightly more enjoyable task, or at least you can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Here are some tips to help break you of your procrastination habit. Stop trying multitasking and doing your homework at the same time. Schedule a four or five hour chunk of time every day to focus on completing your homework. We are more productive when we have time constraints.

When we talk about organization it is really about sustainable organization because you can try and fail over and over until you just give up all-together.

Each person has their own most effective manner of study, and the best way to figure out yours is to try a lot of different approaches. Try studying in many different places, the library, a caf, a friend’s house, or in your own apartment. If one of these ways is particularly effective, use that one, or if you like the variety, maybe it is best for you to switch it up.

Learn to prioritize your tasks by most important versus most urgent. If you accomplish tasks forever based on their urgency you will always be livening crisis to crisis. But if you learn to complete the tasks that are most important first you are less likely to be always running around like a chicken with its head cut off.

There is nothing wrong with letting go of some of your stuff so you can keep a hold of your life better. It may seem difficult, but you will thank yourself as you let go of more and more stuff in order to facilitate cleanliness.

Also, discovering whether distraction is a help or a hindrance to your study can be really useful. Do you work better in a quiet room? Or do you study better in a room with music or talking? Answering these kinds of questions, and experimenting can help you to study to the best of your ability.

Every master of procrastination can become a master of time management. So if you are daunted by your course load this semester for your accounting or computer science degree, remember with proper time management even the most daunting of tasks manageable. Now get back to work.
