STUDY SMART: Study in Groups

Collaborating with a few classmates is a great way to reduce your workload and make sure you understand the material. Study on your own beforehand; this way you can contribute and aren’t fully relying on others for all the answers. You may benefit from classmates with alternate perspectives or different studying techniques.


“I love the individualization of the program so that students can work at their own level, and that the program is easy to use and can be used from anywhere.”
-Connie Cooper, Director of Morgan State University UB

“The staff and students love it.”
-Emma Jenkins, Site Coordinator at Surry Community College UB

STUDY SMART: Alternate where you study

STUDY SMART: Alternate where you study

Conventional wisdom tells us to sit in the same place to form a positive habit and create consistency for studying. Recent studies have discovered this may do the exact opposite; the monotony of routine and the same environment makes it difficult for our minds to create new connections. To keep information fresh, change up where you study. Try a quiet cafe instead of the library.
