Tips to Academic Success
Taking Notes
Reading Assignments
Time Management
Test Preparation
Study Strategies
Go to class and take notes.
Make sure you label example problems, equations, theories etc.
Be sure to write down any explanatory remarks your professor makes about a problem (i.e. how do you get from one step to another or why a particular method was used with which particular conditions).
After class, read over your notes and either condense (humanities/social science classes) or expand (engineering classes) your notes in the left hand column of the paper
Reading Assignments
Preview the chapter before you read the assignment.
Read the assignment BEFORE you go to class.
Take notes on your reading to keep you focused.
Review your reading notes.
Time Management
Prioritize your tasks.
Divide your study time into one-hour blocks and vary them throughout the week. Do your homework! Homework is usually 20 percent or more of your grade.
Remember the general guideline that for every credit hour of an engineering class, you should plan to spend three hours outside of class on that course during the week. If you are taking 15 credits of engineering coursework this means you should prepare a seven-day schedule that allows for approximately 45 hours of non-classroom study.
Start your homework early-don’t wait until the last minute.
Consider a meal plan with the residence halls.
Test Preparation
If available, work old exams. The methods with which your engineering professors want you to demonstrate your understanding of the material is often radically different than high school. Even if you’ve been exposed to material before, keep in mind that chemistry, calculus, and physics exams in college are different than chemistry, calculus, and physics exams in high school.
Join a study group to learn information and solve problems covered in class.
Predict test areas & prepare for an exam at least one week prior to the exam.
Study Strategies
Annotation – writing notes in the margin of your textbook in your own words
Adapted Cornell Notetaking – taking the notes on the right side of the margin and condensing or expanding on the left hand side
Concept mapping – a variation on outlining in which you diagram main ideas and supporting details to learn concepts covered in class
Outlining – representing the ideas presented in the text by separating main ideas from supporting ideas using an outline structure
Practice test – a sample exam using predicted topics and the professor’s test format
Predicting test areas – reviewing notes and selecting topics for exams
Time-spaced learning – learning and reviewing course material in blocks of time that are varied throughout the week
