Despite all of the required courses in college, I have yet to see one teaching college study tips. Where is that in the course catalog? There is an assumption that we know how to study effectively on our own.
Do you feel like you missed this class in high school?
Thinking you are missing a crucial skill everyone else has is discouraging. I know ’cause I felt this way my first year of university. I looked around at everyone who seemed super focused and productive and wondered how they did it.
The good news is college study tips aren’t for the elite, they are for everyone! The only students who have awesome study skills learned them either from a good teacher or mentor or through personal trial and error.
