WEEKLY TIPS FOR ACADEMIC SUCCESS AT
WESTERN OREGON UNIVERSITY


  • We ofthen categorize ourselves as visual or auditory learners, or as being left-brained or right-brained thinkers. Don't worry about this so much. It is more important to figure out which study strategies work for you - and to use them - than to worry about where you lie on the learning spectrum.

  • This may seem obvious - and we can't say it ENOUGH, but . . . The best way to prepare for tests is to attend classes and PARTICIPATE! You will have already begun the process of reviewing and will know what to expect on the exam.

  • Remember quality over quantity. Rather than sticking to one subject and spending hours attempting to master it, you might try switching between a few related topics. It is less boring and you might just learn more!

  • The only thing worse than having a deadline is missing a deadline. Stay organized, cut down on procrastination and your work load will feel MUCH more manageable.
