Students have always had difficulty finding good study tips and getting into the swing of using them. Now that we’re at that time of year when tests are becoming weekly struggles, it’s a very important time to begin getting into the habit of studying and finding efficient ways to do so, especially when the constant gratification of your phone is calling. Some students, unfortunately, don’t even bother to study because of how difficult it seems to them as they have never had those good habits instilled into them. Nevertheless, study habits vary across student populations, with different things working for different people. 

Laney Edwards, a sophomore at Hawthorne High School, stated that she “…usually comes up with shortcuts that pertain to the test and that usually helps me out.” When asked about what advice she would give to other students, her response was :“I would say it’s all about willpower and having the strength to realize that if I want to excel and do well on my tests and exams, then I have to make time and find ways to make studying easier so it’s not a chore to me.”

Ryan Murphy, a senior who recently decided to pursue an alternative path for his GED provided another perspective. When asked about the biggest struggle when it came to studying, he responded that he simply “…really didn’t study. I realized that school just wasn’t for me, and so I’m trying to get my GED because I want to have a future and so I think the thought of doing it all to do good in life is what motivates me the most.”

With school being stressful enough, having some good study habits will help reduce the stress of a lot of work. So, doing the necessary work won’t seem to be so much of a struggle and will motivate one to finish their work.
