I enjoyed reading Jeff Bennett’s advice on how to succeed in college classes. I could really relate to the idea of studying on your own before joining a study group. In my past experiences, studying in a group has not worked out so well for me. I do realize that it can be beneficial for certain individuals. However, I must be in a quiet setting and I like to go over and over points that I have previously missed. I will try to implement the idea of not staying up too late on the night before a test. I am guilty of this, I feel I do my best studying under pressure. I do not relax before and during exams, I am a victim of severe test anxiety. I am willing to try to underline instead of highlighting, but I can see myself going back and highlighting it too. Highlighting just seems to grab my attention better. I do feel that Mr. Bennett has given me a few tools to be more successful in my classes.
