10 Study Tips For College Students |SIPPITY Hot Cocoa Mix

Posted by Southwest Beverages on 11/2/2016

At the beginning of each semester your professor tells you how he or she will grade. As part of that grading process they tell you that they will be giving you two tests plus a final. They tell you that each of the two tests will account for thirty percent of your grade with the final accounting for forty percent of your grade. Here are 10 tips that will help you study better and perform better on your tests.


  • Get the big picture correct. Since tests usually measure your performance on a cumulative basis, that is the first test containing the easiest material, it is critical that you “ace” the first test, since subsequent tests are only going to get harder.

  • Find a location to study-free from distraction, and go to it on a consistent basis.

    • Find the time of day when you study your best. Some people it’s the morning and some people it’s late at night.

  • Prepare and use flash cards to record significant ideas or key facts. USE the cards to study.

  • Use acronyms to remember lists. If your test calls for you to discuss one of the five things on the list, you begin your answer by stating, “There are five factors that comprise xxx. These five factors are: List each one. Specifically, I will be discussing … etc.”

  • Use review questions at the end of each chapter.

  • Obtain past tests and take practice tests. This is particularly useful for finals.

  • If at the end of the test you will run out of time before you can answer the question, write in bullet form the subject matter you would have discussed if you had more time. If this happens on a math test, write the equation down with no answer.

  • Take a break when you need a break. Limit your break to twenty minutes. Drink hot chocolate, or iced hot chocolate as appropriate, as it is a refreshing beverage that will not keep you awake when you are done studying.

  • After you “ACE” the first test call your parents and tell them not only your test result but your new study habits. Conclude by asking them to send you a “Care Package” that includes a fifty box of Sippity hot cocoa mix.
