Joseph Sardashti Lisa Portwood UCOL 2002 3 March 2010 WWA 6 Part I: My Personal Rules for Success in College and Life Procrastinate as little as possible. ? Getting things done early is always a good policy to live by, especially if one wants to eliminate the stress of a high workload. Always be active. ? This is a bit more open ended, but it means that one should never settle for inactivity if there is work to be done, or even fun to be had. Activity makes one more social, responsible and likeable. Go to class. ? No matter how tired, hungry, hung over, etc. a student is, going to class will keep them in the correct mindset for learning and studying. Skipping class until a test day makes learning the content extremely difficult. Always be kind, never judgmental. ? The ?weird? kid in your physics class might be the only way you can get an A in the class, and might end up being a pretty cool friend. Network with as many people as possible. ? The more people a student knows and has gained the respect of, the easier a student will receive scholastic and career opportunities down the road. Do not give up because something seems hard. ? Working through difficult tasks and courses is the best formula for becoming a stronger and more intelligent person. To drop or skip something due to its difficulty is foolish, and a student will have to take on the challenges eventually. Part II: The VARK questionnaire, presented by Tammy Pratt, allowed the lecture section on Monday to determine the preference of their learning style. My learning style ended up being Reading, though I think of myself as a visual learner. Some study tips that I could implement from the VARK assessment include: write summaries of readings, prepare for lectures by reading the content before hand, read over a friend?s notes before doing homework, and create my own test to help study for a major exam. These are all reasonable tips for my learning style.
