It helps<br />During<br />Choose the right place to sit<br />Sit in the front to ensure you don`t look at your phone<br />Sit away from the doors so you aren`t distracted<br />
  5. 5. Maximizing Class Value<br />After<br />Look over notes once before the next lecture<br />Go to tutorials! <br />Relax<br />How about Test Week?<br />Prioritize your tests, which are worth more?<br />Take into account the subject in your approach<br />
  6. 6. Technical Classes<br />Examples: ECO100, MAT133, RSM100 (2ndPart)<br />If you don’t understand the concept, its OK!<br />Focus on process before understanding<br />With practice of the process, you will develop intuition<br />If you still don’t understand the concept<br />Use available resources:<br />Professors<br />Math Aid Centre (SS, Some Colleges)<br />Economics Study Centre (GE, North of Robarts)<br />
  7. 7. Memorization Classes<br />Examples: RSM100, AST101, ENV200<br />These classes are usually based on textbooks<br />Thus, memorize the textbook... <br />It may seem daunting, but find ways to summarize<br />Type out notes<br />Determine topics that are most obvious for test questions (Eg.

  9. 9. After the Test...<br />I DID AMAZING<br />Awesome! Continue your study strategy.<br />I did ok... Not what I’m used to<br />Evaluate study strategy<br />What worked in High School won’t work now<br />Try to use other people’s study strategies <br />From here you can develop your own<br />I failed...<br />Same as above, but more importantly, forget about it<br />You have more chances to make it up<br />Out of 20 Credits, 1 bad Mark won’t kill your GPA!<br />
  10. 10. Other Helpful Things<br />RELAX! SERIOUSLY, DON’T STUDY 24/7<br />ITS UNHEALTHY, AND UNPRODUCTIVE (Burn Out!)<br />Don’t worry about eating junk food<br />You can burn it off after (Dragon Boat – Today!)<br />Try to eat healthy, but don’t freak out if you don’t<br />Fruit, Granola Bars, Sandwiches are great study foods<br />
