Taking notes can be very difficult, but good notes are very important. Test questions most likely will derive from lecture notes, so as college students you need an organized note-taking system that is effective and efficient. This presentation will offer some suggestions for meeting these goals. 

Time Management

College life is busy! As students, you can feel overwhelmed and exhausted. You can avoid procrastination and disorganization with better time management. This presentation will offer suggestions for coping with these problems through the use of agendas, schedules, and self- monitoring tactics. 


Taking tests can be very stressful, especially if you are not prepared. The stress and lack of organization can lead to low grades. Taking a test involves more than knowing the subject matter.
