Student Study Skills Tips
By Robin York, Chemeketa Community College
As a study skills instructor, I tell my students to avoid cramming. However, there are times when you're left with no other option. So this month I am going to offer some information about how to cram.
You can get the most value out of cramming by "concentrating on review",
"taking deep breaths when negative thoughts occur", "writing I CAN DO IT on a
3x5 card and keeping it handy", "avoiding stimulants", and "accomplish specific
goals before going to sleep."
