School of International and Public Affairs ​hi everyone so today I'm coming to you with a video all about my tips and tricks for studying and staying organized in school while some of these tips are tailored specifically to college students I'd say that most of them could be applied to anyone in any type of schooling though I'm actually a third year college student so I've got two and a half years of experience I've definitely gotten time to learn what works and what doesn't work for me I've also you know gotten to know other people and see what it does and doesn't work for them so hopefully if maybe you're an incoming freshman or you're in college but still not getting the hang of things this video can be really helpful for you likewise if you're in high school or some other kind of schooling i still hope that it can help you in some way so if you're interested in seeing what i do to stay organized keep watching so my first tip for anyone is to take notes don't just use the slides don't be that person that says all all the informations online I don't have to write anything down because not everything is in the slides and your instructors will tell you this sometimes they'll just say something out loud or it's from the book or maybe you do there's something on their slides in class that isn't on the slides that are online so write things down when you go to class you don't have to write down every little thing that you see you don't have to copy the slides verbatim but if you can just write down in your own words especially important things that the professor emphasizes or they say sometimes they'll explicitly say this is going to be on the exam I think that those things are better to actually just physically write down even if it's on the slide if you write it down you know okay when you're studying the slides I wrote that down also so that's probably really important my second tip that I have for you is to separate your classes from each other I do this but getting each class a color I use these I get them in different colors and then I assign each color a class and the color of my notebook for that class is also the color of the pen that I use in my planner for example if orange is biology then I know that if I'm looking at orange and I'm writing an orange I'm thinking biology and maybe that doesn't work for everyone but that works for me separating your classes is really important separating your note especially if it's a small notebook like this don't have two classes in don't just combine all your papers together in one big pile of five different classes keep everything separate and separate folders separate notebooks or at least separate sections of those notebooks just to prevent becoming overwhelmed and my third tip for you is to at least skin the textbook and you don't need the textbook for every class but if the book is required rent it buy it borrow up for my friend get it from the library somehow and at least go through it it is not uncommon for professors to test you on material that's just only in the book and only the people who read the book know that that's the only place that the material is in so it's pretty easy once you get used to reading a textbook figuring out which parts are key points important parts things that could easily be tested on you just kind of have to do it you get the hang of it eventually that is probably the part of my studying that takes the longest is skimming the textbook my fourth tip is just a plain study tip that I find works really well for me and it's practice teaching your material to either a real friend who's willing to listen to you talk or just a pretend person it's just a different kind of studying you really have to think deeply and really make sure that you understand the concepts behind what you're learning fifth tip is to study for one class at a time it's not uncommon for somebody in college or high school or whatever to be taking five six classes at a time that's a lot of classes that's a lot of information especially if they're in different subjects are not overlapping it can get very overwhelming and so sitting down with two separate subjects in front of you and trying to learn both of them at the same time just isn't going to work set out time to study for one class in one class only don't try and switch between subjects or go back and forth just stick to one class learn what you need to learn and then move on to the next 16 tip for you is to study in different places and at different times throughout the day this will ultimately help you later on when you're taking the exam to think back and try and remember the information it's easier to remember information that you learned in five different places at multiple times throughout the day then something you only ever reviewed at your desk in your room late at night this has actually been shown in research to help better your memory is to study things in various different locations and at various at times it just helps you to remember the information in multiple different context it works in coding variability science tip number seven is to study in small chunks over long periods of time this is called distributed practice it goes along with my last tip it's the same line of research studying in small chunks over long periods of time has been shown to be more effective in the short and long term compared to mass practice or cramming don't cram the night before it might have worked on one paper or one exam but it's probably not going to work again tip number eight understand your syllabi and refer back to them this is something that so many college students forget to do and it can really make or break

your grade in the class so your syllabus holds a lot of information that you might not even be aware of if you never look at it it has the late policies for your class your office hours for your instructor as well as their email their phone numbers their most the questions you have for your instructor are probably already answered on the syllabus most importantly it shows you which assignments are going to count towards your grade and how much of an impact they have on your grade this is something that so many college freshmen fail to pay attention to I have an example from this past semester we had weekly homework that counted towards ten percent of our final grade and I knew that it was counting towards ten percent of our grade because I looked at the syllabus so I did the homework every week somebody I knew didn't see it on the online gradebook at the beginning of the semester so just assume that it wasn't a part of the final grade didn't do it the entire semester and at the end of the semester when it was added into our online gradebook he had a zero because he thought that it didn't count towards the final grade because he was only looking at the online gradebook and not the syllabus this also tells you when things are due and when your exams are I highly recommend sitting down at the beginning of the semester and writing all those due dates and exam dates down just so you know them in advance and you're never shocked when an exam comes up number nine use a planner I don't understand people who don't use planners my planners my life so maybe that's just me you can use a paper planner a Google Calendar some kind of app whatever works best for you my personal method of planning I have a paper planner and a google calendar so i use my paper planner to write my to do's for classes and personal to do things like that i'm actually using a moleskine planner which just looks like this in the bullet journal method you guys are interested in seeing a video on that let me know and I can do that but just a brief overview of my cleaner on the the way I've been doing it I've been splitting it into two columns on the left side I right all my to do is for my classes color coordinated by class I even scheduled in time to study so if I have an exam coming up I'll write it almost every single day and to me I know that means study at least 30 minutes for this class today I also write down if I should read a chapter I will write down everything that I can do to make sure that I'm all caught up and this really helps me in the long run i use a google calendar to keep track of my meetings in my classes if i work if i should be my research lab if I plan something a week in advance with a friend I'll even add it just method might not work for everyone most people it works better to just have a paper planner or just have a google calendar and just use that for everything but this is my method and it's what works best for me so just keep experimenting and figure out what works for you number 10 schedule in time for longer more daunting tasks so if you have a huge paper to write add that into your schedule if you are studying for the GRE or the mcat or the pcap schedule in an hour block every other day to study for that you're taking an online class schedule in an hour block for that you know that that's all you have to be doing during that time and it's going to seem a lot less overwhelming tip number 11 tell yourself things are due before they're actually do this tip is very hard to do I know that it's easier said than done but if you can get into the habit of doing this it will change things a lot for example if you have homework due every single week on Wednesdays tell yourself towards the beginning of the semester you know it's due on Tuesdays and write it in your planner that it's due on Tuesdays and always do it before a Tuesday and this seems so difficult because in fact your mind you're going to think no I know what's due on Wednesday but if you can trick yourself into thinking it's due on a different date eventually you will believe it and there will come a time when you're sitting there doing some other assignment and you realize oh my gosh my homeworks due it's Tuesday and you go into your homework and you realize oh it's actually due tomorrow so you can do it without stress it feels so good tip number 12 don't wait until the last minute just do yourself a favor and don't procrastinate draft your papers early give yourself enough and if you wanted your instructor to look over it they could your work will be better you'll be happier with it you'll be less stressed just don't procrastinate if you know that an exam is coming up in two weeks at least start thinking about it just think about it know that it's coming up I always study at least a week in advance for all of my exams I prefer to study two weeks in advance but sometimes it is impossible tip number 13 is to schedule weekly chores like doing your laundry or taking out your trash this is just to prevent things from piling up I find that if I don't remind myself to do my laundry every week I will forget to do it and then I have this huge pile of laundry that I just don't know what to do it tip number 14 keep your desk area clear if all parts of your room are messy the one part that should be clean is your desk because you're going to be working there it's really hard to work at a messy desk gets stressful you just don't need that kind of stress in your life tip number 15 know your limits know how to say no to responsibilities when you can't take them on if it's not worth your time don't do it but saying no to a responsibility becomes difficult try and think about whether or not it's going to further your goals and get you to where you ultimately want to be and if it's not going to get you there just say no tip number 16 get sleep you don't have to get less than seven hours of sleep in college people will tell you that that's just the way it is but it really doesn't have to be that way there are some nice for you won't get sleep there are some weeks where you'll get less than five hours to sleep at night and that's okay as long as it's for a good reason but the truth is that if

you're getting less than seven hours of sleep at night my tip number 17 for you is to set up reminders on your phone for anything you're afraid of forgetting I find that there are a lot of things where a reminder my phone definitely makes my life a lot easier especially smaller things that I don't find very important but I do have to do tip number 18 figure out what motivates you so you're doing all of this for a reason you're not stressed because you find it fun you have some goal in mind or some reason that you're going through school finding the reason that you're in school and then what motivates you to pursue that reason will make everything else go a lot more smoothly so maybe making a sign that you hang up in your bedroom or setting a motivational lock screen or maybe calling your mom is enough to motivate you anything that you can do to find that motivation will make everything seem a little bit less stressful and a little bit more meaningful that tip number 19 don't be afraid to ask for help so you are not alone everybody's stressed out you can't do everything and understanding that sometimes other people can help you more than you can help yourself your instructors your advisor your parents your friends they have information that you might not be aware of they might be able to give you advice that you might not have thought of otherwise it can be really easy to get stressed out and forget about other people and think nobody understands or nobody can help you but asking for help can make a world of difference and my 20th and final tip is to go easy on yourself college is hard school in general is hard no matter what kind of school you're in everybody's struggling along side with you you're not alone it's okay if you make mistake everybody makes them we're all going to make them eventually so don't beat yourself up if you get a bad grade or if you don't think that you're doing something well enough or you forget about a deadline everybody goes through these things we think that everybody else has all their stuff together and they know what they're doing and they're always on top of it and they're so organized but they don't and you don't and that's okay hey and that's the way the world works so just remember that and go easy on yourself all right well I hope you guys enjoyed this video and found at least some of it helpful those are just a few things that I do to stay organized if you're interested in me going over any of the things that I talked about in more detail in a separate video I'd be happy to do that just let me know down below and don't forget to like and subscribe to my channel for more videos Rockland Community College.
