PROBLEM AND IT’S SETTING
Introduction

Studying for an exam should be more than just a cramming session. Successful studying is an ongoing process that begins with the first day of classes and involves managing time and learning effectively from texts, lectures, and labs. It also involves developing a foundation from which to begin the pre-exam review. According to Pogue (2000), what is true about study habits was that more than thirty years ago still rings true today-students fail because they do not know how to study. The best advice he can give is to develop sound study skills.
Education is not merely about studying, hence in fact that the study habits directly reflects one’s self-learning ability and the lecturer’s effectiveness therefore it is significant to comprehend or find out the habits of students in able to effectively adjust one thus improve to the furthest effective learning.
The Majority in College success is due to motivation and time management. Anyone in the world who says that he or she can get through college without studying, or that he or she makes grades without studying is completely impossible. Success in college takes effort. This means that if he or she wants to do well then one must be willing to set aside time to study. One must have to sacrifice at times. However, effective time management, adequate time for school as well as a social life or free time to do the activities that one most enjoy. As stated by Abderisak (2007), time is an essential key. You cannot study properly without considering it; hence time management is most certainly a study technique in itself.
Given the hectic schedules of college students which need balance between academics and extra activities makes time management really important. Aside from this problem comes with the identity amongst Filipinos who are very much aware of the negative…...

The respondents were graduates in school year 2009-2010 from the different programs of the University which require licensure examination. A total of 239 students comprised of 127 males and 112 females participated in the study. Table 1 shows the distribution of the respondents. Table 1: Distribution of the respondents The study habits and attitudes of the respondents were assessed by administering the “Survey of Study Habits and Attitudes” (SSHA) developed by Brown and Holtzman (1969) during their final year in the University. The SSHA consists of 100 items divided equally into four (4) subscales named as ‘work methods (WM)’, ‘delay avoidance (DA)’, ‘teacher approval (TA)’ and ‘educational acceptance (EA)’. The subscales are used to formulate two subtotals; summation of scores obtained from WM and DA forms a score for ‘Study Habits (SH)’ and the total score obtained from the summation of TA and EA yield a ‘study attitudes (SA)’ score. The Study Habits measure student's time management ability and work methods whereas Study Attitudes measure student’s opinions about teacher’s classroom management and behavior and his/her acceptance of education. The performance rating of the graduates was generated from the data released by the PRC. It is the overall rating obtained by the graduates in the licensure......

...Persistence Factors in Secondary School Additional Language Study | The research reported here concerns the voluntary decision of New Zealand (NZ) students, at the end of Year 10, to continue or not to continue with their hitherto voluntary study of Japanese, commencing at the beginning of Year 9 (n = 546). This decision is taken to be a clear indication of persistence, one of three fundamental aspects of motivation, and was investigated in relation to student attitudes towards seven different dimensions of additional language (AL)* learning and certain background variables. Analyses involved the validation of an attitude scale, multivariate testing for associations between persistence, attitude factors and certain background variables, including student ethnic background. Discussion of results included the positing of a multidimensional self-determinative orientation factor, comparisons with similar studies, practical implications and limitations. | APA :http://www.jllonline.co.uk/journal/jllearn/4_1/holt.htm Baldauf, R.B. & Lawrence, H.

...Student’s academic performance occupies a very important place in education as well as in the learning process. It is considered as a key criterion to judge one’s total potentialities and capacities (Nuthana & Yenagi, 2009) which are frequently measured by the examination results. It is used to pass judgment on the quality of education offered by academic institutions. In fact, it is still the most topical debate in higher learning institutions that caused great concern to educators and researchers due to the alarming examination performance of students. In the report of the Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) on performance of graduates in the different licensure and board examinations, data show that performance of graduates has been declining in the last ten years. The overall passing rates are quite low (around 36% on the average). In the 2010 professional licensure examinations given by the PRC, almost 70 percent of college graduates in the country failed and, last year, only 125,419 of the 345,182 or 36.3 percent college and technical school graduates passed their respective professional eligibility examinations as per PRC records. These statistics were based on the results of licensure examinations for 45 groups of professionals. Among the lowest number of passing rates were posted by: elementary teachers (15.4 percent); secondary teachers (23.3 percent); electronics engineers (23.5 percent); and registered electrical engineers (31.9 percent) (Philippine......

D. does not always translate into success, but education offers us many opportunities that will otherwise not be there. With ilang tulog na lang before the opening of classes, our parents, our guardians, and our students have to decide where to go to school, and in the case of our fresh  high school graduates, what course to take up in  the university. Some students know what they want to study; others agonize whether it is going to be mathematics like kuya, law like ate, engineering as daddy dictates, medicine asmommy insists, or nursing na lang like the barkada. Not an easy decision, for sure;  not exactly life-threatening either, but a decision that must be made. A decision that can pretty much chart the direction of one’s  life.   The choice of schools can be based on many things. Parents may wish to enroll their kids in  schools that do well   in the National Achievement Test or the National Career Assessment Examination. Or in schools that  consistenly win in math, science, spelling, and all other kinds of contests! I still remember a spelling contest from super many years ago. I was then a relatively good speller, but I could have not correctly spelled the word braggadocio that decided the National Spelling Bee at that time . The contest was won by Margarita F.

...the pupils do not know how to study on their own initiative. Some cannot work out their assignments; others cannot take part actively in the class recitation, and others do not know the art of note taking. There have been many instances which showed that majority of the students display inability to discriminate between relevant and irrelevant information they got from their references. Quite a number of students simply pick up the words from the pages of the books or printed materials while comprehending the meaning of it. These and many others are results of poor method of study habits. Thus, developing the youth requires early training in the schools. According to Covey (1989), “To focus on technique is like cramming your way through school. You sometimes get by, perhaps even get good grades, but if you don’t pay the price day in and day out, you’ll never achieve true mastery of the subjects you study or develop an educated mind.” It is said that aside from the knowledge, endurance and perseverance equipped with hard work, determination and positive attitude towards education is a must. Instead of using leisure time unwisely it is better to use it in doing important things especially in school. Young generations today have great assets to build upon if only their potentials could be tapped. Good study habits are prime factor to the learning of the youths. It will contribute to a successful academic future of every individual. Good learning habits lead to good grades and......
