Time is key to everything in life, especially college life. So I suggest that you complete a weekly schedule and manage your time wisely. The schedule was really useful for me.

I think the best thing to do when it comes to setting up a schedule is to write a list of everything that you have to do for the week. It's good to use a pocket calendar so you can have easy access to the things that you have for the week to accomplish. You should also make sure that for the time that you put in your schedule for certain tasks you should complete it in the time frame that you gave yourself on the schedule. For instance, if you put in your schedule to study 2 hours a day, you should use all that time wisely to study.These are some important things that I use to stay on schedule.

I found this article very helpful because I always find that at the end of the day I'm struggling to get things done. This article will help you see where your time is being spent and how you can adjust your time and priorities to get things done.

This article includes travel time which is not often the first thing that comes to mind when learning to make a weekly schedule.

I will use this site in the near future.

This article is very helpful because it will help to see where exactly your time is going and how much time you have left in the week. It also reminds one to include travel time which can take hours out of your day.

Before one creates a schedule for the week they should use this article to then determine what they want to do and how to better block their hours accordingly.

I will definitely use this feature again.

The steps in "Evaluating Your Schedule" really helped me to manage my time better and realize that I need to fix my time better. It helped me to plan out more time for study and not cramp my study time together. I realized I need to put in more hours of sleep, as well as work time on the weekends when I am not at school. I recommend this helpful site for you because it will help you set a better schedule as a college student and it helps you notice and plan out your personal needs you might not be fitting into your schedule.

Not enough time
Geraldine Escalera
InterCoast College , West Covina, CA

There is never enough time throughout the day to complete important tasks. If you write down what needs to be accomplished throughout the day or week, maybe you won't be so stressed about worrying if you did everything right or have accomplished everything that needed to be done.

Great way to balance school/daily life

I loved this! I think it's a great idea to map out your daily life in order to have a visual of your time that can be dedicated to other tasks. When planning my study schedule it never crosses my mind to look at the amount of time I'm using for my every day routine. It's always been "after I finish this I will make time for studying..." well with this guide you don't really have to let your studying suffer by not having enough time. This helps you set time to make sure each task gets the attention it needs.

Time is money

Managing your time is very important, as the famous statement ‘Time is Money and Money is Time”. As a human being everything is demanding our time and attention it is up to us to determine what is our priority. When we begin to calculate the time we spend with other things we can decide what comes first and what comes last. By us learning to manage our time we can accomplish so many things.

Sometimes it is hard for me to get on track in the mornings from the time my kids get up to go to school till the time they get home. I am so tired and get frustrated and sometimes forget what to do. I try to keep on track with my work butsometimes I forget what to do and my assignments get behind .I would like to get on track with my work and not fall behind on my work.

Realizing that this schedule is set up for a student in college rather than high school, this will be an advantageous tool for the future. For each hour of the day I can write out what I plan to do with no restrictions to how vague or detailed my planning is. This eliminates the need for detailed lists that include time restraints which only slows my progress. Breaking things up into hour long blocks that say "Study for Friday Quizzes" is much less intimidating than making a list that states, "Study Chapter 12 US History for 50 min, Test on Wednesday. Also being able to factor in constants such as class time puts a mind at ease knowing that such things cannot and should not be rushed. I don't think this would work well with a high school schedule, I tried it with my current schedule with early releases and being that I have about 6 hours of class five days a week I was in class for 30 hours each week. Being that each hour of class should require 2 hours of study I had used up 90 hours of my 168 hour week between only school and study time! Looking at a common college schedule of 12 credit hours is much more reasonable, adding only 24 hours of study time on average. I plan to use this schedule in the future as a college student to keep myself calm through my classes.

I really like this Evaluating Schedule worksheet, because I like writing down what I am going to do throughout the day and how much time I will be spending on homework, work, and my personal life as well. I like to stay on a timed schedule, because if I don't I feel like I am procrastinating and I don't like to do that. I don't like the feeling of failure either. I started using this method since I was in high school and have used it to this day with my college courses. It has helped me a lot. This is a really great method of outlining everything and just have it written on one piece of paper to remind you.

I really like this one. I think that when you write down your schedule of what needs to be done during your time is very important. The reason why is because it keeps you on track of the things your are going to do and how much time you will be spending on them as well. Especially if you work and go to school full time. I don't like procrastinating and this is why I have done this method since high school.

I like to know what will be coming up and what I need to do to achieve this goal. It is also important to spend personal time with family that is why making a schedule comes in handy so that you don't get behind in your work.

I really enjoyed this article. I found it to be very helpful because I always struggle with getting things done in the day. I always feel like there is never enough time. I like the fact that I can add up how my time is being spent in a week, and see where my problem areas are. I am going to use this to help me adjust my time and put my priorities in order. I am positive that this will help me with my schedule in school and my life outside of school as well. It's all about having a good balance!

My Time - My Choice

I have always had a hard time with time management and finding the right balance. I have tried many different strategies, but I haven't found the right one for me. I really liked this website because it gives you some different options to choose from. This is helpful because not everyone learns the same the same way.

It really helped that it breaks it down for you so that you can see where your time is placed. It helps you make changes and adjustments so that you can make sure there is enough time to study as well as allowing time for the things you want to do. This is a very helpful website and provides great helpful tips as well

I like this worksheet because it helps me to sit down and break down every moment of my day into sections. It shows me that I am spending too much time being distracted by things, such as my phone instead of committing that time to studying and preparing for my assignments or working ahead.

I am going to try to work up a bit more of a schedule, but for me at this time in life it is sure difficult. I have a baby and he doesn\'t have a schedule. I meet his needs when they need to be met. I cannot wait until I can figure out how to overcome this hurdle. Whenever he does sleep I want to relax and play instead of getting homework done.

Combining 2 schedules
Kati Caldwell, College Freshman

This website from Bucks community college asks you to write down how you spend your time. How many hours per week on what. Then you can look at what you spend your time on and decide if you allow yourself enough time for things like schoolwork and the things that are most important. Then you think about ways you can adjust to make it better. The purpose of this website it to teach students how to look at how they use their time and determine ways they can use their time in the best way. I think this is a good site. It really sounded like stuff that will help me get more organized and make sure I use my time wisely and be able to get everything done.

Something I thought was a good idea was to fill out a calendar of work and when it is due, but also to add peoples birthdays and personal stuff on there too so that you know when you will be busy and should get your work or other things done ahead of time or a different time. I thought that was a really cool idea that I hadn't thought of before.

Evaluating Your Schedule Review

I like survey/evaluating type of learning tools which is why I picked this specific time management page. It starts off with asking you to put your accumulative hours for what I am assuming is for a week duration. This evaluation is broken into four categories which are school, work, family and friends, and personal care. School has three subsets that you put your hours into and those are traveling from school and back, time in classes, and time spent studying. The rest of the categories are pretty much the same just about different subjects that accommodate the category it is in. After you have completed the evaluation you are now asked to ask yourself three questions.These questions ask things "have I allowed myself enough time to for the things I want to do/want." One of questions is asking yourself have you put enough time away for studying, and gives you the 2:1 ratio advice on how you should spend two hours of studying for every one hour class. Overall this evaluation helped me to understand my schedule better, and to think about any tweaks I should make to better my performance.

I found myself reading and interacting with a post titled "Evaluating Your Schedule" . While I was reading this post I couldn't help but notice that the post actually got me interacting with it, unlike other posts that just have you sitting and reading like a drone. A specific aspect I liked about the post was that It had me physically jotting down my hours on paper.

On top of that aspect I enjoyed that the post provided further help for the reader, as if their printable page wasn't enough , they proceeded to list off other actions.

Time management is very important, and I feel like this article displayed a structure on how to remain organized with daily activities. It is good to have a schedule, for it makes one's day more efficient and productive.

Time Management web site review
Robert Corona, College Sophomore

I learned a few things from the web site Evaluating your schedule. From this web site I learned that you should schedule at least 2 hours of study time for every 1 hour in class, Other schools have a similar class that help students, and there is any different ways you can adjust your schedule.

What I found interesting was that the activity they provided the Weekly schedule was very detailed. I also found that not only did they give you a weekly schedule you can complete they also give you a Semester schedule you can complete as well. How effective is making a semester schedule?
