   Time Management

The syllabi that you receive outline all of your assignments for the week and month.  With your syllabus in hand, you should be able to create a weekly calendar with the all that tasks you must complete to prepare for classes and tests.  Allowing time for you to complete all of your many school and home responsibilities will release from you the stress of having a busy schedule.

You must prepare to study in order to utilize your time effectively and wisely.  You will be taking many multiple choice exams that condense a great deal of inter-related material into a very small space.  This means that you must be able to study in a concise manner. Organizing all of your material will help you use your time in an effective manner.

Studying for an exam is useless if you are not focused on what you need to study during your study time.  In order to remain focused on the task, create an itemized list that will assist you in many ways.
