Anticipatory Study Ideas

This article covers time management, goal setting, breaking down your day so it can all be done, also managing your time and how much time will it take to finish your project as well as how to make a plan to get it all done. There are different strategies for each person to help plan in advance and to make it all come together.

I liked the planning in advance whether it be a day, week or a month. Putting it all together because it’s not all due at the same time. You are just needing to adjust your schedule and make sure you don’t PROCRASTINATE!!!
Motivation is what brings it all together.

Read this article, there is a lot to glean from this one.

Top 10 Best Apps for Students

This is an updated listed (Sept. 8, 2016) with some I know (evernote) and some I don’t know.

You set the task and the time.  Then if you try to use your phone, your tree dies! But if you complete your task without getting tempted to use your phone, then you get badges and your can build your forest!!!!

OK, you can also try RefMe, which lets you scan the barcode of the book you are using for your research paper and choose the citation format, like APA and it will put it in the correct format for you, without having to type all the info in!

Don’t have a printer? Try this cellphone tip.

Today was my first day. I don’t have a printer to print off weekly syllabuses my school refers to as “roadmaps”, so I figured out I’d screen shot the roadmaps on my phone and then “edit” and check off what I’ve completed thus far.

<i>Your cellphone can be used for more than just reminders. It is definitely looking like it will be my ” best friend” through out this new journey. Hopefully this hint helps someone else too! </i>
