Learn How to Study

by Nicole on January 11, 2011

Sometimes learning how to study is as important as what you study. This is especially true when it comes to returning students. Some of the biggest challenges for anyone looking to go back to college are establishing good study habits, adjusting to larger classrooms, developing self-discipline, and making the best of a more stringent schedule now that you have more responsibility and less time.

To be among the many who will develop good habits and go on to graduate Cum Laude or better, below is a list that may be of considerable help to you. In addition to ensuring good study habits that will stay with you throughout your lifetime, you will learn new strategies that allow you to embark on a new career or as you continue on to get your Master’s.
