    the 8 Study Habits of Successful Students Science and math require more study time than most students realize Successful students study at least 25 hours outside of class each week about two hours for each course credit However most high school students study less than three hours per week This is not enough time in college where students are expected to master lots of advanced material mostly by studying on their own outside of class That is why we ask Sac State students to commit 25 hours per week to studying Successful Students Study at least 25 hours week Work no more than 20 hours week Attend every class meeting Go to class prepared Rewrite class notes within 24 hours Enter all assignments in a planner Participate in a study group Seek help when needed Back to top Improve my time management http www csus edu indiv p paradisj studyskills htm TIME MANAGEMENT WORKSHEET In this exercise you will create a weekly schedule and complete an online time management tutorial The purpose of the weekly schedule is to facilitate regular studying for classes while still including time for a personal life and a job Remember In order to be successful in chemistry you need to study 3 hours for every 1 hour you spend in class For a typical 3 hour chemistry class this totals 9 hours per week studying for chemistry Creating a weekly schedule will allow you to see what hours are already dedicated to your daily activities and will show you blocks of time which you can dedicate to studying for chemistry and other classes In addition the time management workshop will help you to identify time wasting activities and to identify strengths and weaknesses in your study habits and time management skills The goal of this exercise is to help you be successful in classes while reducing the stress involved with making time for studies The skills you learn while completing the workshop and keeping a schedule can be applied for years to come both in your college classes and in your future career Part I Making your weekly schedule Use the following instructions and a printout of the Blank Schedule for Week of to make your schedule for the upcoming week 1 When are you most alert and able to accomplish the most work in the least amount of time Make a note of your most productive hours by placing an asterisk next to the appropriate times in the first column of your schedule 2 Block out weekly activities including classes work etc Check all of your class syllabuses and write any exams and deadlines for projects and papers for the week 3 Block out study time for each of your classes during the most productive hours of your day 4 Block out time for co curricular activities such as college clubs church etc 5 Block out time for sleep including the time it takes to prepare for bed and any naps you take during
