...period just before a significant or concluding moment such as a deadline, due date or scheduled event. But in term of study, last minute is known as cramming. In Commonwealth countries this technique usually occurs during the revision week (week before exams), also known as “swotvac” or “stuvac” In education, cramming or last minute study (also known as mugging or swotting, from word swot, similar to "sweat", meaning "to study with determination") is the practice of working intensively to absorb large volumes of informational material in short amounts of time. It is often done by students in preparation for upcoming exams, especially at the last minute. Cramming is often discouraged by educators because the hurried coverage of material tends to result in poor long-term retention of material, a phenomenon often referred to as spacing effect. H.E. Gorst(year) stated in his book, 'The Curse of Education', “as long as education is synonymous with cramming on an organized plan, it will continue to produce mediocrity.” Generally considered as a negative study technique, cramming is becoming more and more common among students both at the secondary and post-secondary level. Pressure to perform well in the classroom and engage in extracurricular activities in addition to other responsibilities often results in the cramming method of studying. Cramming is a widely-used study skill performed in preparation for an examination or other performance-based assessment. Most common among......

...How can we improve our study habits? Everyone has the experience students, starting from kindergarten to high school or university. For most people, it’s not hard to become a student, but becoming a student who has great grades is not easy. You must want to know what causing this difference. The answer is good study habits. In the process of schooling, many students actually don’t have good study habits. If you want to have a good score, the good study habits can help you more likely to achieve your goals. Improving our study habits can occur in three stages: developing learning habits, using four study skills and understanding the benefits of good habits. First of all, students should develop a way of learning. In fact, most of them don't realize that they don’t have completed good study habits. The article “Why ‘good’ study habit may be bad for learning” (2010) talks, "Clear a quiet work space. Stick to a homework schedule. Set goals. Set boundaries. Do not bribe." But this approach to home studying may be the result of "sketchy education research" and, as such, completely wrong.” This article shows us that our traditional sense of learning habit is not correct. Consequently, you might ask what good study habits are. The good study habits including setting a regular time to study that fits in with the student's family schedule; removing distractions; gathering necessary supplies; recording assignments in an assignment book or on a calendar; note-taking and organizing for......

...The Ten Study Habits of Successful Students Successful students have good study habits. They apply these habits to all of their classes. Read about each study habit. Work to develop any study habit you do not have. Successful students: Try not to do too much studying at one time. If you try to do too much studying at one time, you will tire and your studying will not be very effective. Space the work you have to do over shorter periods of time. Taking short breaks will restore your mental energy. Plan specific times for studying. Study time is any time you are doing something related to schoolwork. It can be completing assigned reading, working on a paper or project, or studying for a test. Schedule specific times throughout the week for your study time. Try to study at the same times each day. Studying at the same times each day establishes a routine that becomes a regular part of your life, just like sleeping and eating. When a scheduled study time comes up during the day, you will be mentally prepared to begin studying. Set specific goals for their study times. Goals will help you stay focused and monitor your progress. Simply sitting down to study has little value. You must be very clear about what you want to accomplish during your study times. Start studying when planned. You may delay starting your studying because you don't like an assignment or think it is too hard. A delay in studying is called "procrastination." If you procrastinate for any......

...motivation. It requires constant check-ups. It requires maintenance. Successful studying comes with your firm decision to succeed in doing it. Usually, you study because you need to (and sometimes you don’t even when you need to), but it’ll be better if you study because you really want to. When you don’t have to force yourself, only motivate. Adding desire to do studying is like adding a special ingredient to a dish. The dish will come out more delicious & more nutritious. You can’t gain any negative effect on studying. Having pimples and dark circles under your eyes don’t count. There are a lot of factors that affect the good study habits of students. In addition, these factors usually affect teenagers the most since during teenager years a person go through something called “the stage storm”. We can all expect lots of little things that compete with the student’s attention and attention to studying. Technology today is one of the greatest factors that affect the study habits of students. The time they spend on playing online games and posting to social media sites should have been invested to more productive activities. Of course it is not wrong to do those things but to do them excessively is. We can also trace a student’s poor study habits during her younger years. If his/her study habits are not developed well during preschool & elementary days, there’s a greater tendency for her to be uninterested in studying. Family problems, especially financial......

Study habits are learning tendencies that enable students to work privately. Azikiwe (1998) describes the study habit as “the adopted way and manner a student plans his private readings, after classroom learning so as to attain mastery of the subject”. According to her, “good study habits are good assets to learners because the (habits) assist students to attain mastery in areas of specialization and consequent excellent performance, while opposite constitute constraints to learning and achievement leading to failure”.

Study Habits

...CHAPTER 1 THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND INTRODUCTION One of the major problems in teaching is the formation of desirable study habits among pupils in order to make them independent and effective learners. Some authors say that we should teach students not only what to learn but how to learn. Students stay in school for a limited time but learning is a lifetime process. Study is the stage of formal learning by means of which the individual undergoes changes in behavior through the achievement of knowledge, facts and information, and the establishment of desirable habits, skills, attitudes and appreciation in an efficient and economic way. The major task of the teacher is to motivate, encourage and assist students in effective study, to provide a strong motive and direct students in such a way that they may obtain good study habits. For one, developing good study habits leads to the accelerated reading power if the students enabling them to learn more root words that help them to understanding difficult lessons. Habit is important because its application and influence includes every aspect of human life. In studying, without the proper habits, learning would be faulty if not impossible, since education consists largely of the process of habit formation. Hence, an increase in the reading power has a total effect on the sensory capabilities of students to perceive the logical approach in tackling the most important lessons of topics discussed in class by the......
