A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When I am given a syllabus on the first day of class, I quickly skim through the due dates of all tests, research presentations, and major examinations. Then, I chunk each area into smaller parts that are doable for me to meet the required deadlines. I also make an extra working copy of the syllabus and stick it to my study area to keep me disciplined and focused.
