 Studying Priorities

When a schedule is created there are some items that take priority over others.  Create your schedule based on your commitment to studying.  Follow the items below to get a better sense on how to better prioritize your studying.  

  • Keep a list of priorities and goals 
  • Make sure your schedule is realistic (scheduling an 8 hour block without breaks may be unrealistic) 
  • Determine the best place for studying 
  • Communicate with friends and family about your study needs 
    • These are the people who will be your support system 
    • Let them know that you need time for studying.  Some might even want to help you study by reading off test questions.
