Maximizing Your Study Environment
By The College Advisor
No, this series of 4 articles isn't going to give you a magic trick so you will only
need to study 5 minutes a day. What it will do, is give you some pointers to help your
study time be more effective - so the end result may be a reduction in the amount of time
you actually have to spend with your books to master your course. Our research has shown
that each temperament needs to tailor their study environment to suit the way they learn
and retain material. Unfortunately, early in our school careers, well-meaning parents
and teachers often try to train us is a particular study system that worked for them.
Trying to use a study environment that works well for someone else may be counterproductive.
You will be more effective if you use what works best for you.
