COMMON STUDY PROBLEMS
I spend days studying but I still do poorly, can I get help?
Yes, check out the Test Taking and Thinking/Learning Styles Handouts in the The Center for Student Achievement.
I go blank on tests – HELP!
See the The Center for Student Achievement for Stress Reduction and Test-Taking Strategies Handouts.
I have a full time job and I'm taking only 12 credits–how come I can't catch up?
Because 12 credits of classes requires at least 24 hours of preparation per week. See The Center for Student Achievement for Time Management Handouts.
The professors talk so fast in class that I never get all the notes.
You are probably trying to take down all the notes in chronological order. There are better methods! See the The Center for Student Achievement Center for Note-Taking Handouts.
The Center for Student Achievement is located within the Sylvia E. Fishman Student Center, room 417 West, (212) 772-4890.
