Alright, let me share to you my study habits when I was still studying at UP-Manila. COMMITMENT. You have to commit to yourself that you really want that good grades, and you're willing to change your bad study habits for that. GOAL. Set a goal like for example.... 1. a grade. say, uno (1.0) 2. study in advance 3. review notes right after class, when you get back home BE SPECIFIC. similar with goals, it's better to be more objective when it comes to studying.. 1. Set a targeted grade 2. Study at home for 1 hour per subject 3. Review with peers every say, friday VISUALIZE. this one's the same as POSITIVE THINKING. If you want to develop good study habits, visualize yourself studying the way you ideally dream of studying. LOVE. for me this is the most important, no matter how low or high your grades will be if you love your course/future job, it will boost up your enthusiasm in studying. MEMORY SKILLS. If your course involves a lot of memorization, it's good to learn memory tactics. Try reading The Memory Book by Harry Lorayne and Jerry Lucas. So that's about it! I could load you up with more tips, but I guess these are most important, and oh! don't forget to reward yourself after you did a good job improving your study habits! Cheers!

hi! i'm also a third year student.. i'd like to share to you my study habits.. 1.find a conducive place where you can study (i mean somewhere which is not NOISY and where things are just in place) 2.remove all unnecessary things from your table or even out of your sight.(those things which you don't need during your study period)e.g.cellphone. 3.when you started studying,be serious about it, FOCUS is important, don't let anyone/anything disturb you. 4.enjoy studying.if you are motivated by music,then listen to one. ;p 5.don't think that studying is an added responsibility or burden,look at it as a self enrichment and treat it as one of your enjoyable hobbies.. 6.if you succeed in a quiz or exam..or anything for that matter,REWARD yourself!treat yourself to an ice cream,to a cake or to a shopping! IT IS JUST A MATTER OF SELF DISCIPLINE AND DETERMINATION! IF YOU CAN THINK THAT YOU CAN DO IT, THEN YOU REALLY CAN!

interesting topic. Perhaps the best way to start is to choose the "when" and "where". "When?" It seems a persons mind is not always attune to learning. So it is best to find out when one is in the mood to learn. Hopefully, the hours during the day that are most suitable to learning can be identified. "Where". I recall my favorite study place was the library - where they had those small cubicles for serious study. Every one will have a favorite study place - where references can be accessible and conducive to learning - silent etc. Finally, perhaps, one of the best questions to developing good study habits is: "What is supposed to be interesting about the subjects?" I recall as a student, I was interested in so many things. It became easy to acquire the interest in most, if not all the subjects. Please tell me what you think. Cheers:)
