Specific—Specific goals state exactly what you want to accomplish.

They are clear and concise; not vague or confusing. Measurable— Measurable goals state what you want and when you want it.

They enable you to measure your progress at any point along the way. Action-Oriented— Action-oriented goals indicate how they will be

achieved. They specify what you need to do to reach your goals. Realistic— Realistic goals are possible. They are attainable, considering

the resources and constraints relative to your situation. Timely—Timely goals allow reasonable time to achieve them, but not

so much time that you lose focus or motivation. Timely goals have a specific deadline.


Manage your most valuable possession —Time · · ·

 Record what you need to do in a calendar/planner. It will decrease the chances of forgetting what needs to be done.  rioritize and spend time on important things before they become P urgent. Number your tasks in order of importance (1, 2, 3) and complete them in that order. Do important things early. Waiting until they are urgent only increases your stress level.  chedule time to complete your projects accordingly. Set up a study S schedule to create positive habits. Spend more time on subjects that require improvement. Break down large projects into small steps.

Avoid procrastination and just do it! It’s much easier to finish once ·  you’ve started. · Remember Your Goals! Where does academic success fit in? Review your list of tasks and check off completed ones. Transfer unfinished ·  tasks to a future date and continue the process.

Study Strategies

Listen ·  ·  ·  · 

Concentrate on the instructor. Listen for the main ideas. Focus your ears on the 5 W’s: Who? What? Where? Why? When? Be alert for the speaker’s feelings and style.

Take Notes · ·  ·  ·  · 

Focus on important ideas and supporting facts. Use your own words. Discover different note-taking methods like mapping or outlining Keep notes organized by dating and numbering pages. Keep all notes for a class in one place.
