One of the keys to your success as an online student will be how you study. We all know that cramming might help you get that quick grade increase before an exam, but is there a better way? YES! Pace yourself!
As soon as you start learning about the material covered in the course, begin to study efficiently for the mid-term and final. Many courses also have other tests and pop quizzes, so by doing a small amount of studying every day, you’re preparing yourself for whatever your professor throws your way. Even just 15 minutes every night before you go to sleep can help you retain material. Come finals week, you’ll have a very good base of knowledge before you ever crack open a book to prepare for the exam.
Just because we’re in the midst of the winter holiday’s, it doesn’t mean it is time to goof off. So, while you’re taking a break with a peppermint cookie, or a cup of hot chocolate take out your study materials and study until you’ve polished off the snack.
