88 Tips for Succeeding in College

88 Tips for Succeeding in College

For people who are currently attending college, you may find it is quite different to your high school life – the expectation, life and study style are new to you. OEDb has gathered 88 tips on every common aspects of students may find problem on their early college life and make them to excel quicker. It covers number of categories: Seize the Day, Class and Note Taking, Studying, Test Taking, Writing Papers, College Resources, Career Planning, Money Management, Time Management, Campus Life, and Survival. I think the test taking tips are the most useful ones:

28. Begin studying at least three days before an exam. Study for about two or three hours per day if you have to. But don’t wait until the day before your exam to cram for eight hours. You won’t remember much and you’ll be worn out come test time.
29. Go to bed early the night before an exam. Getting plenty of rest the day before the exam will keep your mind sharp. You don’t want to be feeling sleepy during an exam.
30. Arrive early on exam day. Take a seat five or 10 minutes before the exam starts to allow you time to relax and get your mind prepared for the challenge ahead.
31. Read the instructions of the test very carefully. You may know the material inside and out but that won’t make one bit of difference if you can’t obey simple instructions.
32. Review the entire test before you answer any questions. Plan ahead. If your exam period is 90 minutes long, don’t spend an hour on the first part only to find out that there are still two equally challenging parts to go. Spend the first minute of the exam planning how much time you think you will need to spend on each question or section. Answer what you know first and then come back to more difficult questions.
33. Check the back of every page. Nothing feels worse than getting a test back and realizing you only answered half of the questions.
34. Be sure to answer the question in full. Read each essay question carefully, then read it again and again until you have a firm grasp on exactly how to answer it. You may have a terrific answer to give, but if you only answer half the question, that won’t make for a very good grade.

Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

  • Gather new material, both specific and general.
  • The Mental Digestive Process
  • Drop it
  • Poof, the idea appears
  • Work it

Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
