Roundup: 11 Important Student Tips and Advices
Book

    On top of today’s interview with Michael Leddy – I want to round up number of great student tips and advices that Michael has given throughout the year. These articles get you around if you are a student – these advices are extremely valuable for your school years. Specifically, these articles could help you answer all these questions: How to start sucessfully as a freshman? Where to study? How to plan my school year? How to tackle my projects and papers? How to do well on exam?

    • Granularity for students
      Granularity is a tremendously useful strategy for students. The typical spiral-bound student-planner doesn’t seem to encourage it; that tool is often little more than a place to store due dates: “research paper due.”
    • Getting details right
      Here are a few details to get right, always, when you are writing for a college class.
    • Twenty uses for a Post-it Note
      Jot down less familiar keyboard shortcuts on a Post-it to keep by your computer.
    • New year’s resolutions

    • Homework-eating dogs, and how to avoid them
      “And then, when I tried to print my essay, it disappeared!”
    • A good place to study
      Find a good place to study and make it your own. The more time you spend in that place, the more it will become associated with the work of learning.
    • How to do well on a final examination
      Final examinations can indeed be scary stuff. Studying ahead of time and getting a good night’s sleep before an exam are two good ways to defuse stress and do well
    • How to talk to a professor
      While some professors are genuinely unapproachable, many are happy to talk to students. Here are five points to consider when you’re talking to a professor.
    • Rule 7 – Do the work
      The only rule is work. If you work, it will lead to something.
