Studying?

Wise Up

“Studying is going over material for a test or doing homework,” defined Vickie Hileman. “When I study I get off and get the material I need and study until I’m really tired,” she continued.

Don Carter and Laura McKinnon had a different view of studying, one that was perhaps more typical.

“Learning new material the night before the test is my approach,” said Don.

Laura preferred to “go back and put together the material that I’ve learned.”

While Vickie chose to study in a secluded place where she could be alone, some students preferred background music from a radio or stereo. Others chose the library and a friend to quiz them.

How much did most students study? Don Carter summed it up when he said, “Never enough!”
