As a university student, it is SO important to be able to study in a fast and efficient manner. I used to be very last minute with all my studying - often going over material only the night before, but this was NOT the best method. Changing that has absolutely improved my time management and overall grades!
It's challenging, but a very rewarding experience
My study experience depended a lot on my own learning ability. The majority of my results are based on self-taught efforts, not efforts by my professors. The information was fluffed and the testing methods were awkward but if I can do it, anyone can. It takes a lot of time and energy but that piece of paper will be worth it in the end!
