They dont manage their time effectively, they dont know how to review and revise effectively, they dont take full advantage of office hours with CEFAM professors, and they arent able to balance their academic commitments with their extra-curricular activities.Some might despair in the face of such a reality but not me. Why? Because just like everything else at CEFAM, organization can be learnt.Getting organized for your studies at CEFAM is a skill like any other. With training and guidance any student can learn to manage their weekly workload, plan their semester, take effective notes in class and at home, review and revise for tests and exams, and balance their study against their life in a way that is healthy for them intellectually, emotionally, physically, and mentally.This book will teach you how.Presented in five chapters, this book will offer real-world advice and practical tips on how to:1- Organize Your Time2. Organize Your Notes3. Organize Your Revision4. Organize Your Office Hours5. Organize Your LifeYou might move through the book from front to back and, if you are a freshman student, this is probably the best way to work with the book at first. There is logic to the way that the book is structured – you’ll need to organize your time before you organize your notes, and you’ll need to organize your notes before you can use them to review and revise for exams – and a freshman student who works through the book from front to back will benefit from this.Alternatively you might jump in and read the parts that you feel you need most help with. If you’re a second year student who has a good handle on note taking but needs help with revising for exams, it makes sense to skip straight to the Organize Your Revision chapter. As this is an eBook you can keep it on your eReader, mobile device, or computer and dip into a chapter whenever you need to. The book is designed to be ‘evergreen’, that is, it is designed to include information that is useful for every year you spend at CEFAM and not just your freshman year.In my years at CEFAM Ive helped all sorts of students succeed using the strategies contained in this book. Arent you ready to get organized and achieve that sort of academic and life success, too?
