Piles and piles of homework got you stressed out? No worries! We put together some tips that can help you get through all of your homework efficiently and effectively.<br>
Find a Space that Suits You Best
If you need a quiet place to study, you can find a quiet place at home, at your school or the local library. If you like action and fun environments you can try your local coffee shop or favorite hangout place.
Know Where to Begin
Make a to-do list with all of the due-dates and prioritize what needs to be done first. Do the more difficult assignments first, so you don't have to face them at the end.
Study at the Same Time Every Day
Even if you don't have homework every night, use the time to review notes. If sitting down to work is part of your normal routine, you'll approach it with less dread. Also, you'll become a pro at using time productively.
Keep Things in Perspective
Know how much weight each assignment or test carries, and use your time accordingly.
Organize the Information
People process information in different ways. Some people like to draw pictures or charts to digest information, others prefer to read out loud or make detailed outlines. Try to find the methods that work best for you. Ask your teacher for recommendations if you're having trouble.
Take Advantage of Any Free Time
If you have a study period or a long bus ride, use the time to review notes, prepare for an upcoming class or start your homework.
Study with a Friend
Get together with friends and classmates to quiz each other, compare notes and predict test questions. Consider joining a study group. Divide and conquer! Split up the study guide, make sure you put 100% into it (since you only have half to do) and share notes with your friends/study group.
Celebrate Your Achievements
Reward yourself for hitting milestones or doing something well.
