Finals are coming up and if you’re like me, you’re ready for it all to be over.  However, it’s important to finish strong.  This is why I feel it’s important to share with you some tips on how develop good study habits that was given to me by my mentor from undergraduate school.

Dr. Chris S. Dula, Associate Professor of Psychology at East Tennessee State University has given his talk on developing good study habits for undergraduate students for several years now.  He finally decided to have one of his sessions recorded and created a PowerPoint from it.

Dr. Dula has always encouraged students to continue their education past the undergraduate level, and is the reason that I (and many others like me) have continued our education to the graduate level.  I’d like to share with you his thoughts on how to succeed as a student.

View Dr. Dula’s lecture on You Tube.

The video is an hour long, but is well worth it.  I have had the pleasure of viewing the presentation in person and again via YouTube.  Even though I’m a graduate student, I still use all these techniques he described and his advice speaks volumes of how to become a successful student.  If you take anything away from this blog entry, remember that time management is a critical part of being a student (particularly in a higher education environment).  For any professors reading this, feel free to share any of the information provided in this blog.
