Myths About Studying
By Patti Hutchison
  

1     We've all heard them. "If I study, I get a worse grade than if I didn't." "I do better if I start a project the night before it is due." "My teacher hates me; I'll never get a good grade in her class." "I'm just not smart enough to get good grades." "Grades don't really matter." The list goes on and on. These are myths about studying, no more than excuses really. How many of them have you used? They just aren't true. Let's bust these myths one by one.
 
2     "If I study, I get a worse grade than if I didn't." This is merely an excuse for not studying at all. Maybe once you did decide to actually study. You looked over your notes while watching TV and called it "studying." And surprise, you didn't do well on the test. So why study at all?
 
3     If you know how to study correctly, you will do better. Get organized. Study small chunks of material at time. Take short breaks about every 15 minutes. Study with a friend. Study in your learning style. Use all your senses. Find a way to study that works for you. Don't give up. You'll be surprised how much it really does help.
 
4     "I do better if I start a project the night before it is due." You have put off starting the project; admit it. So, it's true; you'll do better starting the night before than if you never do it at all. But chances are you won't do much better.
