Some things to think about when scheduling your study periods

Remember that reviewing your notes from a class session as soon as you can is essential to learning the material.

If at all possible, schedule time immediately after class for this. It can be as short as 15 minutes. If you have back-to-back courses, schedule a time later in the day. (See Getting the Most Out of Class Time.)

Is there a kind of studying that you do better at certain times of day-

For example, do you find it easier to concentrate on long reading passages in the morning, but feel equally strong in quantitative work regardless of the time of day- Then your 10:00am to 12:00pm block might be best suited for your literature course.

Does it help you to read the readings right before a class-

If so, then that block of time before class is easy to schedule.

Do you plan on studying with a classmate-

If you want to study with a classmate, scheduling the same study time for a course each week will allow you to get together when you want, without having to search for a time.

How long can you study a subject-

Do you find that you can put in a solid two hours for one course but your mind starts to numb after an hour for another- That can help you decide between what to study during a two-hour block.

Plan for changes.

Each week of the semester will be different, so leave a block of time free in your initial plan. Then schedule work for whatever course has the heaviest demands each week.

You can schedule in meals, exercise, and leisure activities if that works for you.

Some students find this helpful while others like to leave their non-class time blank. Remember that eating well, exercising, and having fun are important to your success and well-being, so do not allow your studying to overwhelm everything else. A good time management plan will help you keep the right balance.
