Many students arrive at college expecting a fun time, only to find that the classes require much more time and effort than high school classes did. If you’re planning to head off to college soon, you need to know what to expect. If you major in English and take advanced literature classes, you’ll find those classes much more difficult than literature classes you took in high school. You’ll be writing more papers that are longer than what you had to write before. You’ll find test questions harder. Certainly, you don’t want to travel all the way from New York to a university in California only to find that you have no idea how you’re going to make it through classes.

Disciplined study habits are essential to succeed in school. Someone who studies for every test at 10 PM the night before and types up long papers the day before they are due will probably not find his grades to be too high in college. You may be attending a college with a world-class biology program, but you probably won’t be passing a biology test if you only study from midnight to 3 AM and take the test at 8 AM. Learn to study in small increments long before tests occur and work on papers early in advance. At the beginning of the semester, write all your test and project dates into a planner (or in your iPhone if you’re cool like that). That you way you won’t be caught realizing you have two tests the next day and a 6-page paper due the day after. Talk with students who succeed in their grades and ask what strategies they use. Also, evaluate the tools that help you best for studying. Flashcards? Mnemonic devices? Crazy songs with terms in them?
Take advantage of tutoring services and general academic help a college might offer. Also, many teachers are willing to help their students who come to their offices or send them emails. Don’t be afraid to ask for…...

... GOOD STUDY HABITS... ...are the key to keeping up your grades Remember: “If you improve your study habits, improving your grades will be easier…” 1. Make a list. It all starts with ‘planning’. Make a list of all the things you have to do. Break it down into smaller chunks. Then check off your accomplishments as you go. 2. Do the hard stuff first…then the easy. Put your energy into the harder assignments…when you have less energy or your brain is tired, you can then tackle the easier tasks. 3. Proper study space. Make a place to study. When you use the same place to study, day after day, your body becomes trained. You will focus your concentration more quickly there. 4. Snack. Don’t try to study on an empty stomach. If you’re hungry, you’ll be distracted. So grab an apple or some carrot sticks. Just avoid dairy products or turkey, which tend to be natural sedatives (make you sleepy). 5. No distractions. Turn off the stereo, TV or radio. Silence is the best environment to study in. 6. Study buddy. Don’t overlook the value of a study partner. Quiz each other, compare notes and practice testing. You can also help one another from becoming bored. But avoid distracting each other from what you are there to do. 7. Write it down. Experts agree that the more senses you use to absorb information, the better you’ll remember it. Don’t just read about what......

...Ralph Stinebrickner1 please direct correspondence to Todd R. Stinebrickner Dept. of Economics The Social Science Centre The University of Western Ontario London Ontario Canada n6a 5c2 phone 519 679-2111 ext. 5293 fax 519 661-3666 Unique new data from a college with a mandatory work-study program are used to examine the relationship between working during school and academic performance. Particular attention is paid to the importance of biases that are potentially present because the number of hours that are worked is endogenously chosen by the individual. A “naive” OLS regression, which indicates that a positive and statistically significant relationship exists between hours-worked and grade performance, highlights the potential importance of endogeneity bias in this context. Although a fixed effects estimator suggests that working an additional hour has an effect on grades which is quantitatively very close to zero, we suggest that there are likely to exist causes of endogeneity which are not addressed by the fixed effects estimator. Indeed, an instrumental variables approach, which takes advantage of unique institutional details of the work-study program at this school, indicates that working an additional hour has a negative and quantitatively large effect on grade performance at this school. The results suggest that, even if results appear “reasonable,” a researcher should be cautious when drawing policy conclusions about the relationship......

Sakthivadivel Anna University of Technology Coimbatore, India Abstract An analysis was carried out to empirically evaluate the determinants of profitability in the public and private sector commercial banks in India. A combination of statistical tools such as the correlation analysis, multiple regression analysis and factor analysis were used to estimate the contribution of select bank specific variables towards profitability which was measured by using Return on Assets (RoA). The study revealed that the cost of borrowing and NPA has a significant negative correlation with profitability for public sector banks. Return on investments, return on advances and operating profit had a significant positive correlation with profitability for both public and private sector banks. The multiple regression analysis highlighted that the return on investments and return on advances has a significant influence on the profitability of private sector banks. The factor analysis has also shown......

...determined and motivated to continue their studies despite of their undesirable situation. They are trying hard in their studies for them to avail scholarships available in different colleges and universities programmed for deserving students but others unluckily did not avail due to limited slots given. How these students continue with their quest living with quality of life? Are there any options available for them? The most common phrase we heard from common people is: we can continue with our studies later but this time we have to work first, let’s be practical. The focus of today’s students is to enroll for one or two years then apply for work because the minimum requirements is college level but soon they will realize how important is education and most probably the realization came in late of their lives, that’s the real thing. People spend too much in shorter plans and they did not focus on the longer one. Parents also lacks of motivation for them to encourage their students to continue. Why?... because they didn’t have it during their time. So, this time what can we do to resolve this kind of situation? What if there are lots of students who are determined to pursue their dreams. Can they sustain their studies until they have it? It has been observed here in Consolacion Community College since its opening on 2010 that there are lots of students who are poor but deserving students who are willing to continue with their studies despite of living below the average......

...The Effects of Study Habit on the Academic Performance CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND Introduction Individuals are really different; thousands would love to study at night before going to bed, while thousand others will love to study at dawn. Late night is normally quiet and you are unlikely to be disturbed by anyone. Besides you have longer hours to review all your notes and works unlike the dawn when you will have to race against time. A thorough review at night will help you remember the whole thing you have learnt while the hesitant studying at the dawn is highly prone to forgetting. This is true for a particular group of people.  This is entirely against the theory of “Early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise”. Waking up the whole night to study for exams is sure to affect your health. Late night study is less productive as the mind loses concentration late at night. Lack of sleep affects your daily life. It weakens the strength of the students and you can lose focus during the examination. It will also lead to serious memory impairment, thus making no use of the hard work and study. Research has suggested that sleep and good memory are bed fellows. Burning midnight oil harms more than it serves. The researchers say that at least a good night sleep within 30 hours is needed to remember a new task later. Science has also said that teen brains work most effectively at night. However, the scientists concluded that a good night's......

...ABSTRACT Objective: This qualitative descriptive study investigates how public health nurses working within the child welfare system view the organization and the organizationÕs effect on their case management practice. Design: Semistructured interviews were conducted utilizing the Bolman—Deal Organizational Model. This model identifies four frames of an organization: symbolic, human resources, political, and structural. Sample: A purposive sample of nine nurses and one social worker was selected to participate in comprehensive interviews. Results: Data analysis identified two main themes. The first theme was the presence of organizational structural barriers to providing case management. The second theme was the lack of political influence by the nurses to change the structure of the organization; hence, their skills could be more completely utilized. Conclusions: Public health nurses who work in child welfare will need to systematically analyze their role within the organization and understand how to work in Òhost settings.Ó Nursing educators need to prepare public health nurses to work in non-health care settings by teaching organizational analysis. Key words: child protective services, organization, public health nursing. The purpose of this exploratory qualitative descriptive study was to investigate how public health nurses working in the child welfare system in a large metropolitan county in California view the organization. The study utilized the Bolman—Deal......

...Q: What is the definition of "study habits"? A: The definition of study habits is the habitual practices one uses to help them study and learn. Good study habits can help students achieve and/or maintain good grades. Q: How do you study better? A: Effective studying requires thinking positively, studying in a quiet area, rewriting notes, playing memory games and remaining healthy. Students also need to take breaks and reward themselves periodically. To think in a positive manner, students must think about their talents and skills. Negative and defeatist attitudes must be dispelled from the mind. Students also need to avoid comparing their achievements and successes with other people. Getting away from distractions is imperative. For instance, using a computer when taking notes can lead to playing games or surfing the Internet. Using a notebook instead of a computer helps a person focus better. However, listening to a favorite song on an iPod can motivate students to study better. Libraries and quiet off-campus spots are suitable places to learn. Eating a healthy diet is important because the vitamins and nutrients ensure maximum energy when studying. Certain herbs, such as ginko and ginseng, may enhance memorization skills. Exercise and healthy eating are effective aids when studying. Studying for an hour and taking a five-minute break fosters a more productive study session. Breaking chapters into sections avoids studying for long periods. Rewards can come in......

...It is possible for students to achieve success in the examination if the correct strategies and study skills are used. Studying effectively does not depend so much on how long one spends with book and notes but how effectively one has been studying. One of the most important recipes for success in examination is to study regularly and consistently. After all ‘Rome was not built in a day’. It is necessary, therefore to draw up a timetable with time set aside for recreation, exercise or television. Equally important is the discipline to stick to the period timetable. Without a study plan or timetable, some subject me be inadequate focus and attention. Another factor that is crucial for examination success is the need to do homework and assignments. Homework and assignments reinforce learning and helps students to identify what they do not know so that remedial work can be done immediately. In addition, homework helps students to practice and reinforce classroom learning. Preparing mind maps is another study skills that can be used to make learning more effective and more meaningful. For subject with a lot of content matter such as History and Biology, mind maps are essential for various reasons. For one, mind maps helps students to focus on the important elements as well as to see relationship between the element more clearly.

...Foreign Literature 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. It’s a common scene if some college students fail to finish a passing requirement for a subject course. What is lacking is their ignorance of developing good study habits that are necessary for good academic performance. And to worsen their ignorance are their psychological conception of giving up so easily and the tempting distractions of the surrounding that lead them to a zero percent possibility of creating their own ideal habits. So, it has become a major trouble to college students who are known to be suffocated with loads of works from school. To elaborate more about sound study habits, Rothkopf (1982) referred to it as to whether students study at the same time each day, whether they shut off radio, television while reading and whether they paraphrase and write down what they have read during the practical instructions. Study habit also describes some external activities which serve to activate and facilitate the internal process of learning. Study habit is the daily routine of students with regards to their academic duties and responsibilities. Each student has his own study habits varying on his preferences with the place and time of studying, techniques in studying and more. It will depend upon the person if he...
