Before I start my studies, I make a list of everything that I need to do for the next three days of school work. Doing this makes sure that I don’t miss anything. It is also a nice feeling to see what I have accomplished. I normally do this on a Monday and I try to get most of it done that day or Tuesday so the rest of the week is clear to work at The Shack, and to socialize. When I study and do homework I have to be secluded. I concentrate and comprehend better that way. It seems to be working out to my benefit. I am making great grades while juggling work and basketball and also a social life. I also find it best when I take about 20 minutes to review something that I learned after class that day. So when it comes to test day, I wont have to cram.
