How To Ace Your Class With Very Little Study

Study Smarter Not Harder EbookSo you are in high school or college and you are looking to make great grades while doing the minimal amount of work. Good for you. You are well on your way toward a successful, if slightly manipulative, career. Perhaps you are athletic and wish to not spend all of your time on books when you could be toning your muscles. Either way, you need some fast self-help tips.

First impressions. Instructors can give you plenty of leeway and even raise your grade depending upon the clout level you bring into the classroom. This is not arrogance in any way, but the level of academic respect and performance you show up with. This includes sitting at the front of the class, friendly smiles, saying "yes ma'am" and "yes sir, " sitting up straight and acting like you actually care that you are getting an education. Show up for your first class early and have the first three chapters in your text read. Ask a lot of questions, but do not be annoying.

Little habits. There are little habits which can keep your clout with your teacher incredibly high. Always show up for class, even if half the students have already left for spring break. Always show up early or on time. Never offer excuses if you are late, but tell the instructor that you have no excuse for being so disrespectful of their time. Always be at least two chapters ahead in your text, if you have the time to spare for reading. Do not worry about any exercises, just be aware of what is coming up. Speak clearly and concisely in class and do not stir up trouble or roughhouse with the other students. These little habits can save you during heavy exam weeks, busy game schedules and problems at home.

Reviewing the recommended material. When you review the recommended material, concentrate on key words, points and entire concepts at a time. Do not spend a lot of time reading your textbook if you are not a bookworm and have a hard time concentrating. Lack of concentration can make reading not only a nightmare, but useless as well. Do not highlight your textbook, especially if you are in college and could get a refund. Get a notebook and write down key words and phrases and their matching definitions. Understand the concept provided by the section or chapter and try to come up with one or two examples to use in class. Whenever you are getting concepts mixed up or you simply keep forgetting a few phrases, put them and their corresponding definitions or applications onto flash cards, put the flash cards in a zip-lock bag, and review them on the bus, in the car or while in the locker room.

Always be careful. So much academic dishonesty occurs, that it can be tempting to fall into doing some of it yourself, especially if you are sure that you can get away with it. However, do not take the risk, because your scholarships, your academic reputation and even your attendance could be at stake. Many colleges have a zero tolerance policy and will kick you out immediately if you are found to be dishonest. Other colleges will not be likely to take up the slack if you fall down on the job.

The key to acing a class with very little study is to prepare smarter, not harder. Surround yourself with encouraging people who help you with your flash cards, ask you questions from the text and congratulate you on a job well done. Soon, you will be out of that class and on to acing others.
