Self Designed Exhibit #2
Managing Study Time
The Plan for my Exhibit
I chose to evaluate how i study for my exams in the class i am doing the best in which is my engineering class ENGR 1020. I hoped that by evaluating how i study and prepared for my best class I could change a few details to fit the criteria of my other classes that I have exams in.
When I am studying for my engineering exams I will typically start a week and a half before the exam. I will spend one hour during the week doing practice problems and studying for the exams. On the weekends I will spend two hours working practice problems and studying. The day of the exam I will do practice problems and get my note sheet ready.
I think that after looking at the elements that make up my study schedule for engineering which is one of most successful classes; I think that there are a few ways to become more efficient in my studying. I think that instead of doing my note sheet all on the day before the exam I could work on half of it on the weekend and half of it on the exam day. I think I should try and even out the times that I do practice problems and the times that I review my work. When I split up the time that I will be working on my note sheet it gives me more time to study on my exam day so hopefully that will be beneficial. I think that by evening out the time that I work on practice problems and the time I review my steps it will help me understand my process more and help me iron out the little mistakes.
Reflection of Exhibit
The main point of this self-designed exhibit is to see what I do to be successful and pass my exams in the class I am doing the best in and to take those study habits and alter them slightly so that I can use it to be more successful in all of my classes here at Clemson University I altered the way i was studying for my engineering exams by moving some of the time around so i could use more in some areas and less in others and i feel that it has balanced out my study time and that it will help me more. The key detail that I feel is most important is that I have a balanced study schedule so I don't spend to much time doing one thing and not enough on another. I think that now I will have a better idea of how to divide up my time when studying for each class and how to keep it balanced so that i don't burn myself out while studying.
