Remember the following important Principles of Time use when deciding how to spend your time:
• Many effective schedulers habitually plan their day at a regular time: 5 to 10 minutes in the morning or before going to bed.
• Allow larger blocks of time for learning new mate-rial, grasping concepts, drafting a theme, etc. Divide these larger blocks of time into definite subpart the length of your concentration span.
• As you begin work on each subpart, jot down the time you expect to finish; when you’re through, reward yourself with a brief break: move around, talk to a friend, eat a snack…whatever is good for you.
• Use short periods of time (15 to 45 minutes) to check. It is especially wise to spend a few minutes reviewing immediately BEFORE a class involving discussion or recitation. Immediately AFTER a lecture class, spend a few minutes re-viewing your notes.
• Schedule harder study tasks when you are most alert and can concentrate best.
• Do something daily don’t let it all pile up.
• Plan to really learn the first time; the rest of your study time should spend reviewing through recitation, discussion, making up and answering possible test questions, etc.
Don’t try to divide all your time; know what needs to be done and how long it will take you. It’s how you use your time that counts. Follow these principles to plan your time effectively during examinations ,and also in your day-to-day life
