Links to Study Tips and Strategies

Pomodoro Timer | Free SVG

Limit your study time. Put a fence around it so it does not get out of hand.

Open-ended study times or cramming can be unproductive and divide your attention. 

Try the Pomodoro Technique (tomato timer).

Put your distractions away and focus for one to three 25-minute study chunks with 5-minute breaks in between. 

Online Pomodoro timers: or one with lofi beat or white noise waves. Kaizen Flow

Video of how to use the Pomodoro Technique

Plan your study throughout your week. You never will eat all your meals for the semester the first time you visit the DEX or cram them all in on the last day because you still have meals on your meal plan.  You need to eat a few times a day. Think of your study like that. Chunk your study time so you are actively recalling the information over time allowing for more long-term memory.  Need a weekly schedule to plan with? Try this Daily/Weekly Schedule in Google Sheets.
