Learning Styles___________________________________

Many people don't realize that there are different styles of learning, or don't really know what their own style of learning is.

Tips for Being Organized___________________________

Being organized will make a world of difference in your success as a student. Not only will it keep you less stressed, but being organized can help motivate you to study. Taking the time to prepare yourself before the semester begins will place you in a positive frame of mind that will carry over into your work. Here are a few tips on how to get organized. Try a couple, or try them all. But remember that it takes time and energy to get organized and stay organized. Don’t get discouraged though. There will be times that you may not be very organized. Just take a deep breath and get things back in order. By having a good foundation to start with, it will be easier to get back to an organized state. So start a good system for yourself early on in a semester. Also, don’t be afraid to tailor some of these ideas to fit your own style of doing things. You know yourself best. You know what will work and what doesn’t work for you. Take responsibility for your organization and you’ll go a long way.
