Helpful Study Tips for Accounting Students
Sierra College, Rocklin, California
The article is about ten basic tips to excel in accounting courses. There ten basic tips are really helpful and I firmly agree with all the tips because accounting class is not an easy class. The students need to understand the concept and apply the concept into real life trading activities.
Students should never procrastinate because accounting students should know how to plan their schedule efficiently and always keep on track. Besides, students have to always refer to syllabus and textbook before each class so that they would not left dumbfounded about the materials the professor would give in lecture.
Next, attending class is a virtue as students could not easily understand what they are learning on their own before hearing the concept and explanation from the professor. As a student, I am really agree that being active in class is really helpful in order to develop understanding and to avoid confusion. I always have students that come to me for tutoring, asking me many questions that I believe supposedly they ask them to their professor in class but they do not. Theae are the reasons of why students hardly understand the concept of accounting. Besides, taking notes or doing mind map are really helpful ; it shows how students understand the concept by organizing their notes and also helpful for exam preparation. Even when students asked me questions that needs me to refer to something, I would always look for my notes first as I had make a clear summarizing notes based on my understandings.
Students who always make appointment with me bring along their homework. I understand that they need further explanation and discussing about the topics because by discussing orally, it makes students memorize and understand better. I always encourage them to revise their work regularly and finish all the homework on time. My business 1 professor always claims that most of the students take advantage of the exam study guide by memorizing the answers for exam instead of understanding the concept. This is not good for accounting students as we really have to have the knowledge about what we are studying . In addition, we should always relate all the knowledge and concepts that we had learned to everyday life so that we could remember things easier . Last but not least, students have to put in their in order to succeed.
