I am locking myself away for the next two weeks in my usual study spots so I can study myself away into oblivion. All of my classes are on the same test cycle, so nothing is spread out; all of my hard work falls in the same 2 weeks. I am determined to make good grades on my upcoming exams and essays, so I'm going to work crazy hard!! Here are some of my study/organization tips!
I write everything down in my planner. I color code it, I use stickers, sticky notes, I write to-do lists...my planner is packed. I highly recommend using the Lilly for Lifeguard Press stickers! I loooove them because they are super cute and they have one for every occasion.
I am a huge fan of to-do lists. I like seeing what I have to do and I like crossing off what I've finished!
I handwrite all of my notes instead of using my laptop. It helps me pay really close attention in class instead of getting distracted by Pinterest or Facebook. I write a lot of notes (usually 3-4 pages per class), and I just had to get another binder because I couldn't fit everything in my original binder anymore. Writing things down is my way of absorbing the information. Whenever I need to memorize something, I will write it down a ton of times and then I'll have it memorized!
For tests, I like to type up all of my notes into one study guide. Then, everything is in one place.
I like to print the study guides out, then read through them while making lots of notes in the margins. I'll highlight everything and basically dissect the whole study guide.
As always, I'll have my good friend Starbucks to keep me wide awake!
Do y'all have any study or organization tips? Let me know!!
Wish me luck! I'm basically super busy for the next two weeks but I have a lot of posts queued up for y'all! I'm sorry I haven't been posting as often, I've been at a loss for inspiration and it's been crazy here at Wake! Have a great weekend everyone!
