An Experience

As a college student, I had to study as hard as I do now. My learning skills had complete change since I have been in college. It gives me such as hard time and stressful to complete one quarter. However, when I looked back to myself and I think of an experience that about the same that I had during high school years and it reminded me lots of good time there. During high school, I did not have to study hard; I would be able to study the day before the test and scored well in the test. Although, I took many classes but I still have time to relax and play around with friends and things I like to get done. Now, I going through this experience and I realize that it helps me change lots of things such as study habit, responsibilities and self-control. These experiences had designed my improvement.

During high school time, teacher often give student to work on homework and study at home is limited. Also, I always expect to do short assignment that I have been discus in class. There is no due date for incomplete or pending work. The learning materials are always expected to learn from what the teacher assigned to and the testes or exams are pretty much in the range that teacher told student to study for it. Different from that, college’s teacher use their time to teach and my assignments are done on my own time. Also, I had to responsible for my all homework without being reminded and teacher usually gives a certain day to due that assignment. If I couldn’t finished or submit it in late, I would get a zero without complained because it is totally my fault. The testes and exams are important and if I am not prepare for it well, I would fail those test easy like play a game. I am glad that I have changed my study habit so that way it would be a good practice for me in the

    It would be a sin to add a pronoun in the essay because it would result in a lower grade. Based on that, I have come into college with a positive aspect that my previous writing skills were very well developed, and the Critical Thinking that was done for every essay prompted me to write very well. I feel that high school has taught me very well and I have grown from my very first essay to now. Throughout the last few years in school, I hope to achieve many different goals. I hope to do better in academics than I did in high school and not slip by just to pass.…

    When I first began this class I thought that this would be just another introductory class that is required to orient you to the expectations of the particular college. Now, after completing this class, I know that this is not the case. Personal Dimensions of Learning has been a great help, not only to my school work, but also in my daily life. Before taking this class, I thought that learning, and completing daily tasks, were mostly memorizing the order of the way things are supposed to be done and just completing the task. I never liked this strategy, but it always seemed to be the most convenient way to get things done at school, home, and work.…

    I don’t have many tests, but the ones I do have they covers over the materials I learned in class and what we read on my own. My professor would assign me homework, but doesn’t check it and want me to do the same thing I did on homework on the test. Also, on the test I’m expected to use what I learned to a problem not memorize and repeat information. The way college teach and tested me is different from my high school. My High school and the college I attend now have somewhat similarities.…

    Shortly after the bell rang I headed to my big classroom filled with my classmates in it. I quickly sat down and tried to keep myself relaxed from the thought of failing the test. My teacher Mrs.Richie later went over basic rules then handed out the test. From there is was nothing but hope that the studying would pay off. I quickly went through the questions that I knew for sure and later went through the complicated ones that had me second…

    How many of you really know how to study? Most college students do not do as well as they did in high school due to the fact that they never really had to study; some may not even know how to. Studying is one of the “activities” college students should be spending most of their time doing. If you want to do well or at least pass your classes, you should spend at the minimum four to five hours a day studying. If studying was enforced upon high schoolers, they would be more successful in college, that’s why I think high school teachers should help prepare students for college by planning their classes and content to where the students actually have to study in order to do well.…

    I managed to keep a good enough GPA to get me into colleges and to get me scholarships and opportunities I wouldn’t have with a lower GPA. I am thankful to the high schoolers I talked to when I was still in middle school, because without their warnings I can only imagine what my GPA would’ve looked like. I’m thankful that I didn’t ruin it my first two years of high school, although I did have a couple of mishaps here and there. I have learned from my mistakes in high school, and hope to be an even better student in college, especially because there will be more time to do homework other than a couple hours after work every night. I really hope to work on my procrastination as I get older, not only in my academics, but in everyday life.…
