Your study skills and strategies will evolve during your studies. The natural curiosity that comes with being a student, your desire for academic success, and the occasional stumbling block or challenge will motivate and empower you to grow as a learner. Learning about oneself is an exiting journey and well worth the investment!
Be passionate and excited about what you're doing. Talk with friends and family members about what you're learning. Most of the time, they'll find the information pretty fascinating also, which makes you feel all warm and fuzzy and makes your time spent feel worth while because you can share the information. This will also help you retain information better."
