That’s the end of the first week of Improving Your Study Techniques!

This week we discussed:

  • The importance of preparing for your study session.
  • Step 1: previewing, is very important! Don’t just start studying or reading right away; preview the study material before you start.
  • Time management: We discussed time-wasters, and invite you to monitor your use of time in the upcoming week.

What are we going to do next week?

  • Step 2 of the three-step model: Studying. You will learn how to make good summaries of your study material.
  • Time management continued: You will analyse your time and make a long-term plan.

See you next week!
