GMT - 3 Hours ~Schedule / Plan Ahead~

Post by winnersgroup on Fri Feb 11, 2011 8:53 pm

Use a monthly calendar to help you allocate your study time on the Weekly Schedule. At the beginning of each quarter, spend some time with your calendar to enter all important dates. As you receive course syllabus, enter the dates for quizzes, papers, etc., on your calendar. Then estimate the time needed to prepare for each of these. If you stick to this schedule, you'll amaze yourself by having the paper finished. The rule-of-thumb is "Plan ahead by working backwards."

By counting backwards like this, you'll be surprised how well you're using your time and how much better your grade will be when you're not under pressure. And, by being really honest with yourself and taking account of all your priorities, you'll be able to do chat with your friends and not feel guilty.

At the start of each week, transfer important items from your calendar to your Weekly Schedule. This helps you to avoid things that might otherwise sneak upon you.

Be sure to schedule time for your fitness routine and for study breaks. Your brain works best when it has sufficient oxygen. Your concentration is enhanced when you go hard at a task until you feel yourself fading. Then Break! A good rule-of-thumb is to work for 50 minutes and then break for 10. But watch yourself! More than 10 minutes is more than a break!
