    a. Do you find yourself cramming for tests? b. Do you find yourself rushing to do assignments? c. Do you feel overwhelmed and stress? d. Have you had to cancel a session? e. Do you feel rushed completing SI Assignments? f. Do you feel like you do not have a social life?

    Help SILs apply the strategies and see their value with these activities.

    The Study Cycle* 1. Have SILs reflect on their use of or their attitude toward The Study Cycle with

    these questions: How often do you preview or review before and after class? What are some consistent study habits you employ? What are some obstacles that keep you from trying/using the study

    cycle? What are some changes you can make that will help you to implement

    the study cycle. 2. Give them a couple of minutes to preview a chapter in a random textbook. Ask

    the following questions: What did you learn from your preview? Describe your attitude toward previewing.

    Weekly Planner/Time Management* 1. With color pencils or markers, help them to plot out their weekly time

    The suggestions above help students get the most out of homework. By focusing and reviewing, undergraduates and graduates master the material assigned and lower test anxiety. Practicing the test situation allows students to become more time proficient during exams and feel more confident in the classroom. Documenting this process inspires dedication and consistent method so students excel with the aid of excellent study habits.

    It is important for students to know what resources are available to enhance their study methods. For more information on tutoring, study groups, and supplemental instruction, contact the Center for Academic Services at 225.578.2872 or visit www.cas.lsu.edu.

  • Test PreparationConcept MappingConcept mapping is a way to arrange and manipulate material in a visual manner to assist your organization, comprehension and retention of material. It can be used to brainstorm ideas and to organize concepts that you are trying to understand. Some students actually take notes in the form of concept maps, while others use it to preview a chapter before reading. Try using it in many different ways and for different purposes.

  • Get OrganizedCreating a Weekly CalendarDrafting a weekly calendar will help you acquire a better perspective on your time availability by evaluating your academic, social, work and personal activities.

    Organizing Your Weekly Calendar: Detailed ViewSelect a calendar that will work best for you

    Any week at a glance calendar, showing half hour segments (paper calendar,Google online, create your own). CASs weekly calendar is available online or a hardcopy in the CAS office.

    Block out fixed commitments Classes, weekly social/organizational meetings, work, meals, exercise etc.Identify open blocks of time Schedule several Intense Study Sessions (ISS) throughout the day. These

    are 30-60 minute blocks for concentrated study on a particular subject.Group similar activities together 1. If you have two papers to write, you can complete all your library work in

    one visit.2. When doing laundry, study with a friend.

    Multi-task when you can Printers run out of ink, friends call with urgent problems; allow yourself breathing room to review your work and turn it in on time.

    Schedule recreational breaks Strive for balance in your life; take a walk, have a snack, call a friend.Plan for flexibility Developing a schedule and sticking to it takes time and patience. For

    instance, you may find that the two intense study sessions you allotted forworking on a research paper were not enough. If you still feel energetic andfocused, continue to work on the project, even though that block of time was reserved for another assignment.

    Examples

    Tip: Use your daylight hours wisely, this is typically the most productive time for learning.Source: College Learning and Study Skills, Rhonda Atkinson and Debbie Longman, West Publishing Co.
