Time Management Technique: A Student’s Guide

What is time management technique? 

Time management technique is a set of methods that help individuals to create and maintain efficient use of their time. This includes but is not limited to helping one to know when and for how long to study for a particular test, what time of day to study, and what time is best for sleeping. Time management techniques can help students to achieve better grades because they do not waste time studying material they need not even study. 

“Good Time Management”, says that if one studies an hour on Monday, two hours on Wednesday, an hour on Friday, and two hours on Sunday that the student will have studied five hours total in a week. This equates to five days of studying out of seven which means the student actually only studies two days out of seven.

Time Management Technique: A Student’s Guide

Time is a precious resource that all of us spend, yet for most of us it seems to run away from us, and never be enough. I am not sure as to why it is that we feel like we don’t have enough time to do everything we want or need to do. There are many reasons for this, such as television and video games taking up a great deal of our time. 

Here are some points:-

1. Block schedule. 

Learn how to use your time wisely by planning and scheduling your classes in blocks of time. For example, if you take two classes on Mondays and Wednesdays, take one on Monday and study material for another class on Wednesday. This way you learn to manage your time during busy days of scheduled classes when you must juggle studying for many different courses. 

2. Master the course’s syllabus. 

The syllabus is a general guide that shows what topics are covered in each class session, but study guides will list specific topics and questions asked on tests, quizzes, and homework exercises. Study these lists before every exam or quiz so that you will know what to expect. 

3. Schedule study sessions. 

This will help you to eliminate unnecessary or redundant studying. If you take a test right before the start of a class, there is no reason to spend time reviewing material before then. When planning your study time, you should schedule a day or two to study for each exam and use the remainder of your days off from regular classes for review and practice problems. 

4. Take tests early in the semester. 

This way, if you don’t do well on an early test, you still have plenty of time to improve on content areas in which you did not do well. It is important not only to learn from mistakes but also how to work with other students who are also taking these courses 

5. Ask your teachers for extra help. 

If you encounter topics that are difficult or confusing, ask your teacher to explain them again. If there is one topic you find particularly difficult, consider asking a student tutor to work with you one-on-one. 

6. Study in groups when you can. This will help with the socialization process, especially if you are taking a difficult class. It may also help some students focus better if another person is quizzing them on the material being covered in class 

7. Take advantage of every opportunity to get your questions answered. 

Ask questions when you don’t understand something and make sure you understand the answer before you leave the classroom. Remember that while your professor is there to help you, his/her time is limited, so consider how long it will take to explain an answer or point out an error on your homework or test and ask ahead of time if he/she has enough time to help you. 

8. Keep up with class reading assignments. 

Take advantage of your reading by doing more than just skimming the material–answer practice questions in the back of the chapters, discuss lecture material with friends or classmates who are also taking the course, and ask questions if you don’t understand something in a lecture or book chapter. 

9. Study the night before an exam. 

Many students make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to study for a test or quiz, but doing so leaves little time to review and re-study your notes and ask questions if you didn’t understand something during class lectures or classroom discussions
