Time Management & Study Planning This document is uncontrolled when printed Last Updated: 11 March, 2013 Page 2 of 5 Key factors in managing your studies  Attend all lectures and tutorials to keep up-to-date with course and assignment information.  Prepare for classes by completing prescribed readings and activities. Note any questions to ask the teacher. Remember, once you get behind, it is hard to catch up.  For every 1 hour of class time, you need to spend at least 1 hour for reading, completing assignments and exam preparation.  Take notes (in class and when reading) and write down any areas you don’t understand and any questions you have.  Reread your notes and test your knowledge regularly to help you prepare for exams and assignments.  Start to prepare for your assignments and exams from Week 1, so you are not overwhelmed later: o Read your Course Profiles and course Moodle sites; o Record and highlight due dates for your assignments and exam dates in a diary and on a wall planner; o Plan what you will need to do to start and complete your assignments. For example, if Assignment 1 requires you to write a report and reference two journal articles, you should plan for this by immediately finding out about reports, referencing and researching; o Visit the Learning Skills Unit (Metro Campus) or Academic Learning Centre (Regional Campus) to make appointments for each assessment task.  Convert the information into the easiest format for you to understand. For example, if you are a visual learner create a mind map.  Form a study group.  Take breaks in your study. Take a 5-10 minute break after 40-50 minutes of studying. Sleep and diet are also important.
