It’s 9 p.m. on a Thursday night and you’re out with your friends. You’re laughing, dancing, having a good time, when suddenly it strikes you – oh (insert choice of four-letter word here), there’s a test tomorrow. You rush home in a panic, questioning your life choices as you crack open a dusty textbook, rip open a package of highlighters, and pour yourself a cup of coffee. By 11 p.m., you’re already three cups deep but only 30 pages in. You fall asleep at an unknown point and wake up at some godforsaken hour, but power through until the sunrise blinds your tired eyes. A second wind hits you as you make your way to class, and you congratulate yourself on a successful study session. The neon blue highlighter mark on your face? The mark of a warrior. Nothing can stop you. You’re gonna kill this test.
…you got a D.
Don’t let this be you. Few people are naturally great at studying, but with a few pointers, it doesn’t have to be so hard.
