Using your Study Timetable

Once you have decided when you will (or can) study, you will need to look at the specific tasks involved, what you will actually be spending your study time doing. Try to allocate the tasks that require most concentration, writing assignments for example, to study slots when you will be most alert and free from distractions. Tasks such as skim-reading books, periodicals or internet resources, to note if there are any relevant sections, may not require as much concentration.

At the start of each week draw up a task (to do) list for that week. Tasks may include reading key sections of a book, sourcing new information, planning an assignment or researching a particular area. Allocate the tasks to relevant study slots on your timetable. This will help you to keep track of your progress so that you have an unfolding record of your studies and can backtrack if necessary.

Keep a note of your progress; if you are unable to finish a certain task, try to avoid negative feelings; you may be able to use some of your 'free-time' the following week to complete it- As you progress through your study you will come to know how much can be realistically achieved in the time slots available and this will help you to plan more accurately. Cross tasks off your 'to-do' list once they are done. Remember that the object of the task or 'to-do' list is to avoid wasting time on issues that are not relevant or important.
