STUDY SMART: Don’t Categorize Yourself

Stop worrying about how you learn: visual versus auditory, or left versus right-brained. According to the New York Times, research has shown this is largely erroneous. If anything, it is more of a distraction to put emphasis on your learning style. Instead, focus on the study strategies that work. If you haven’t found ways that best suit you, keep trying different methods until you find one that works.

STUDY SMART: Get Enough Sleep

A tired mind is a slow mind. Staying up all night to cram last minute will only hurt you- the lack of sleep will make it more difficult to recall and organize information. Make sure to study in parts a few nights before an exam without taking away from precious hours of sleep. Its important to find balance; make enough time to take care of your health, socialize, and study.
