Improving Your Study Habits

Success in college requires lots of time and effort. A typical 2-year program of study nominally requires 1600 hours of studying. But time-on-task alone is not a sufficient condition for success, it is merely a necessary condition. More time studying does not necessarily lead to better learning. In fact, time spent ineffectively studying may even be harmful to your success as this inhibits a deeper understanding of your curriculum. Instead of simply thinking about the time you spend studying, think about the productive study time you’re inventing in your learning.

Spending some time to evaluate how you study and to learn new study skills is a way to improve your productive study time.
