Study Tips

Reading is not studying

Simply reading and re-reading texts or notes is not actively engaging in the material.

Understand the Study Cycle

The Study Cycle, developed by Frank Christ, breaks down the different parts of studying: previewing, attending class, reviewing, studying.

Spacing out is good

One of the most impactful learning strategies is “distributed practice”—spacing out your studying over several short periods of time over several days and weeks

It’s good to be intense

Intensive study sessions are short and will allow you to get work done with minimal wasted effort.

Silence isn’t golden

The silence of a library may not be the best place for you. It’s important to consider what noise environment works best for you.

Switch up your setting

Find several places to study in and around campus and change up your space if you find that it is no longer a working space for you.
