This effective note-taking style makes it easier to organize your notes. It also makes studying easier when your thoughts are in sections.

All you have to do:

Divide your paper into three parts:

-- Main ideas and/or question

-- Notes

-- Summary

Time Management

Time management involves balancing all the activities in which a person participates within the confines of the week

Successful time management allows students to use time more efficiently to prepare for classes, study, and remember information - three key habits that foster learning and college success. Time management can also reduce stress, as students plan ahead and allot time appropriately to differing tasks.

Set Goals for Yourself

Define where you want to go, establish what you want to get out of the year and set up the steps it takes to get there.

Goals help us get to points in our lives where we want to be.
