Time Management and Study Tips for College Students—Part 1

Whether you are just starting your college experience or consider yourself a seasoned pro, it’s never too late to improve your study habits. Here are some practical tips from Dr. Stephanie Sarkis, Ph.D. and ADD expert:

  • Always attend the “real” class, and use the Internet one for review.
  • If you are not a morning person, don’t schedule classes for 7 a.m. You will not go.
  • Get involved on campus. All work and no “productive” socializing is boring.
  • Too much socializing equals bad grades. Everything in moderation.
  • If you are feeling overwhelmed, are having problems sleeping, or are experiencing emotional problems, visit your college’s counseling or crisis center.
  • Many colleges have free tutoring centers on campus. Take advantage of them.
  • Sit near the front of class.
  • Attend the whole class. Even if you feel like you will just die if you sit there any longer. Even if you feel your brain start to ooze out the side of your ear. Professors sometimes give really important info at the end of class.
  • Recopy your notes after class. Or if you’ve typed them (which is recommended), do a quick read-through after class.
  • See how your first semester goes before you consider getting a job. See how heavy your course load is first.
