    1. Do not try to combine all of your studies into one session.

    Have you ever gotten up late at night spending more energy trying to keep your eyelids open as you study? If so, it's time to change. Successful students generally space their work for shorter periods and rarely try to consolidate all of their studies into one or two sessions only. If you want to become a successful student, you must learn to be consistent in your studies and to have regular, but shorter, study periods.

    2. Plan when you are going to study.

    Successful students plan specific times throughout the week to study - then stick to their schedule. Students who study sporadically and fancifully do not generally succeed as well as students who have a defined study schedule. Even if you are all caught up in your studies, creating a weekly routine with wow writing, where you reserve a period of time a few days a week, to review your lessons will ensure that you develop habits that will allow you to succeed in your education for a long time.

    3. Study at the same time.

    Not only is it important to plan when you are going to study, but it is important to create a consistent daily study routine. When you study at the same time every day and every week, studying will become a regular part of your life. You will be mentally and emotionally better prepared for each study session and each study session will become more productive. If you have to change your schedule from time to time due to unexpected events, it does not matter but resumes your routine as soon as the event has passed.

    4. Each study time should have a specific objective.

    Studying simply without direction is not effective. You need to know exactly what you need to accomplish during each study session. Before you start studying, set a study session goal that supports your overall academic goal (that is, memorize 30 vocabulary words in order to pass the vocabulary section on a future Spanish test. )

    5. Never postpone your scheduled study session.

    It is very easy and common to postpone your study session because of a lack of interest in the subject, because you have other things to do or simply because the work is difficult. Successful students do NOT delay their studies. If you procrastinate your study session, your study will become much less effective and you may not get everything you need. Procrastination also leads to precipitation, and precipitation is the number one cause of errors.

    6. Start with the most difficult subject first.

    Since your most difficult task or subject will require the most effort and mental energy, you should start with that first. Once you have completed the most difficult work, it will be much easier to complete the rest of your work. Believe it or not, starting with the most difficult topic will greatly improve the effectiveness of your study sessions and your academic performance.

    7. Always read your notes before starting a mission.

    Obviously, before you can review your notes, you must first have notes to review. Always make sure you take good notes in class. Before you start each study session and before you start a particular task, review your notes thoroughly to make sure you know how to complete the task correctly. Reviewing your grades before each study session will help you remember the important topic learned during the day and ensure that your study is focused and effective.

    8. Make sure you are not distracted while studying.

    Everyone is distracted by something. Maybe it's TV. Or maybe it's your family. Or maybe it's too calm. Some people actually study better with a little background noise. When you are distracted during your studies, (1) you lose your mind and (2) you are unable to concentrate, which will lead you to very ineffective studies. Before you start studying, find a place where you will not be disturbed or distracted. For some people, it is a silent cubic in the corners of the library. For others, it is in a common area where there is some background noise.
