Where should you study?
Choose a place that’s calm, quiet and has what you need to study effectively. This could be in your bedroom, in your home office, at your school’s library, or in a study room. The place that you opt to study should depend on what you find most effective. This is important as the place you opt to revise at, can be the difference between failure and success.
Do you find sitting in a quiet room surrounded only by library shelving, other people studying, and lots of handy resources, a good way to study? Or, would you prefer to sit in your bedroom surrounded by familiar surroundings and revise? If you’re someone who gets easily distracted, it’s best to opt for somewhere calm, quiet, and distraction-free. Somewhere like your campus library could be the perfect place. Be smart about where you study, and you’re twice as likely to be successful.
