Effective Study Skills Tips

All of us urge students to work hard and succeed in their exams. We frequently remind them that this is their opportunity to succeed in their lives since education empowers people to be useful members of the community. The ability for students to understand what they are studying is of quite importance.
It is important for us to know the obstacles to academic success. The following list highlights some of the obstacles:
  • Lack of a study schedule
  • Lack of clear priorities in terms of what to study
  • When sitting down to study, usually too tired or restless to study
  • Daydreaming
  • When one cannot resume to study after a break
  • Spending too much time socializing and playing games
  • Inability to say 'no' to invitations and requests
  • Making unrealistic time estimates and attempting to do too much at once
  • Studying on a cluttered desk and in areas facing a window, TV and other forms of distractions
  • Frequent disruptions from outside and perennial procrastination
For effective learning to take place, there is need of learners to acquire good study skills which will enable them to approach learning in a more pragmatic and independent way.
In a bid to learning to learn, learners are expected to adjust to their unique learning skills depending on the task at hand. Learners are equally expected to be responsible for what they are learning by spending sufficient time on the task at hand. They ought to approach each task with the most appropriate approach and select the relevant materials for specific tasks.
The following 8 tips will give learners a brace in their study skills:
1. Get to know who you are
Learners ought to evaluate themselves by figuring out their strengths and weaknesses. In so doing, learners have to consider skills for instance; writing, reading, listening and numeric. They have to leverage on the strengths they have in these skills and bridge their weaknesses or the skills they have problems in by giving them the necessary attention.
In this regard, learners need to work on habits such as organization, time management, concentration, listening and note taking. The skills the learner frequently uses are inevitable, or rather, the learners' preference should inevitably be considered; this includes the preferred learning styles. Learners should also consider whether they learn effectively by reading, watching or listening. Other factors to be considered when evaluating one's self is whether you prefer waking up in the morning or working late in the night; that is, the time you think your concentration is at its maximum.
2. Be a boss for your time and life
For learners to effectively manage their lives they've got to have a goal driven life; it is therefore the first step not only in managing one's time but also one's life!
After a learner has identified his/her goals, they are in a better position to figure out whether they are using enough time to work towards their goals. This evaluation of the time spent provides the learner with sufficient information to enable them to allocate more time for their goal focused subjects and less time for subjects subordinate to their goals.
3. Figure out the essentials of studying: What entails studying? How do we go about it?
The learner is tasked to be aware that studying is more than going to class and doing home work. Some students are known to do homework just to please their teachers or rather, to avoid conflict with their teachers.
Study entails; preview of the session or content to be learnt, attending the session in the class, classroom review and activities and individual studying.
4. Concentration is key in studying
A good student does not necessarily study more than a poor student. The difference comes in on how the former uses his/her time more efficiently. In this regard, it is paramount for student to learn to focus on the task at hand, i.e. concentrate; this should be both in class and when one is doing individual study. It is important to note that, it is easier for a student to remember a concept well understood and very easy for a student to forget a concept vaguely understood.
5. Active readers enjoy their studying
Most students fall asleep when they are doing their studying; this is can be confirmed by the number of students found asleep during prep time- they are quite a number! Has any one seen some one dosing on the football pitch? Certainly not! The reason is that people on the football pitch are active. For students to remain interested in what they are studying, they must remain active participants in the content they are interacting with. It is therefore important for the students to preview the readings they do and have clear-cut objectives for the tasks at hand. This can be done by consistently providing themselves with prompt queries or tests about what they have learnt.
6. Unlock the vocabularies
English language is nutritious in its vocabulary. When reading, it is common to come across words you have never met. It is important as a learner to develop skills that will enable you to get the meaning of the words without interfering with the flow of information. The learner's ability to understand language gives them a leverage to learn more efficiently.
7. Develop a practice of writing
Developing and practice of writing skills enable learners to express their ideas. Writing while studying enables the learner to pay attention, develop critical thinking and be active. Writing should have a controlled idea, have a purpose and be logical.
8. Developing of listening and note-taking skills
Active listening to instructors coupled with smart choice of what to take down as important notes and what to leave out as illustrations of the main content is a skill that ought to be mastered. Note taking demands that the learner be an active listener, be able to distinguish main and minor points, and participate in class.

Study Habits

In college in any class, you will find widely different types of people, not only in personality but also in scholastic attitude. This same range from one extreme to the other can also be observed in their study habits. In fact, students can be divided into distinct groups based on their study habits. There are basically three categories: the perpetual studier, the average studier, and the crammer.
The perpetual studier is a rare breed indeed. But they exist and they aren't very hard to spot. They usually sit in the front of the class and write about three pages of notes a day regardless of how much material the instructor covers. They don't talk to anyone except to answer questions, and that only at the end of class when the lecture is over. When a perpetual studier goes home, before he does anything else, he takes out all his books and begins studying for the classes that he has the next day. He studies until really late at night, stopping only once or twice for a quick snack. When he is informed that he has a test, he will begin preparing for it at least five days in advance unless, of course, he is told less than five days previous to the test, in which case he will study until he has covered all the notes he has at least ten times or until he knows the material backwards and forwards. Although the perpetual studier does well in school, he usually misses out on social life. There are a select few who maintain something of a social life, but this is rare. Most of them never meet new people except in situations where they are forced to, such as meeting their roommates at the start of school. However, they will graduate with a 4.0 grade point average and be successful in life - as long as they don't choose careers that require many social skills.
The majority of students fall into a category that I refer to as the average studier. This person studies sufficiently but doesn't work more than necessary. When he studies for a test, he will look over the notes taken, reread appropriate pages in the textbook, and study with a friend sometimes. Overall, he may put in anywhere from two to six hours a day studying during the week leaving Friday and Saturday for his social life and then spend from four to eight hours studying on Sunday. The average studier takes his education seriously and will study with friends much more often than will the perpetual studier. He will have a good time getting an education. For him the line between education and having a good time is a lot thinner than with the perpetual studier. The average studier will leave college with at least a solid education and will be much more socially adept than the perpetual studier.
The third type of studier is the crammer. This type of person studies only when the threat of taking that class over is very great. When he studies for a test, he doesn't begin until the night before or the morning of the test. He spends most of his time doing anything that doesn't have to do with school. It amazes me how people like this manage to get by with the extremely small amount of studying they do, but somehow they do. Their homework is last on their list of things to do. If they are bored and they are on a borderline D, they might do some homework. But before they do such a deed, they will rack their brains trying to think of something else to do. It is amazing to watch a crammer trying to avoid doing homework. Cleaning the room even takes precedence over homework-not to mention sleep.
The crammers are easily recognized in any classroom. They sit in the place farthest from the teacher, and they usually group together. They seem to have the attitude that they are in class to do nothing but have a good time and attract attention. They enjoy disrupting class, and if left alone they will infect a classroom much like cancer infects a body. They are the teachers' nightmares, and there is always at least one in every class. But at the very last minute-before the axe falls, so to speak-they will hit the books. Although some of the crammers won't last for four years, most of them will graduate. They will leave college, though, with little education and few social skills.
It can be argued, of course, that there should be a fourth category-the never studier, one who quite literally never studies not even at the very last minute. But then, this person doesn't remain classified as a student for very long.


Almost anybody needs or wants added money advancing in, and with this admiration a lot of would like to alpha some array of added income producing project. The agitation is, not abounding of these humans seem able to fit "a additional job" into their time schedules.

How to Get the Most Out of Bible Study, Part 1

In my spare time, I love teaching adult Sunday school. One of my favorite subjects or topics to teach is "How to Study Your Bible." Whether you're a new Christian or you've been keeping the pew warm for more than a few years, there's always something new to glean, something new that God wants to teach you.
A favorite quote of mine is from J. Vernon McGee, now at home with his Lord, a radio preacher for many years, teaching the Bible in his series "Through the Bible." Dr. McGee takes those of us who will listen, 5 years to go from Genesis 1:1 all the way to Revelation 22:21. McGee says, "all Scripture is for us, but not all Scripture is to us." What does that mean? I take it to mean that ALL of God's Word is meant for every man, woman and child to read and learn and absorb. The second part takes a little more to grasp, but makes sense: not all Scripture is "necessarily" to us, as an individual at a particular time. We may read a section many times and scratch our head afterward; that's okay! But one day, you're reading that particular passage again and the Holy Spirit just opens your eyes and heart. You have an "aha!" moment! God has spoken to you!
But back to the question at hand. How do we get the most out of our Bible study? Individual Bible study requires time and patience. Finding time is not easy in our busy lives, but if we just commit to small steps, we will gain a hunger and thirst for His Word that will consume us. Start with about 15 minutes whenever you can; when you wake, at lunch, or maybe at bedtime (great way to put good thoughts into your subconscious before sleeping). In short time, we'll want to be in God's Word rather than watch TV or chat online. The best part is that God will richly bless you.
Let's get started and get practical. The information that I am presenting to you is not original. These are tips that I gleaned from a book and study entitled "Living by the Book" by Dr. Howard G. Hendricks of Dallas Theological Seminary. This is a great study that I recommend to everyone who wants to walk deeper with God.
Before we get to the first 3 of 10 Steps of learning to observe what you're reading, you need to choose something in the Bible to read. What do you like to read? Something historical: how about the books of Genesis or Kings. Something about the life of Jesus: the Gospel of Mark (easy to read). Do you enjoy poetry? If so, the book of Psalms has some of the most beautiful poetry ever written. Do you like love stories? If that's your genre, then the book of Ruth is for you. The Bible has something for each of us. If you've never read the Bible, choose a book and genre and get going.
A couple of extra tips: keep a pad of paper and pen handy for notes and questions. Questions for you to ask your pastor or priest. Questions to ask God. He will answer you. Use a highlighter as you read. Remember that your Bible is your handbook for life. Mark it up! Take notes in it. Make little markings. Break that binding, then buy another one. Your Bible is NOT a book to keep on the shelf looking pretty just because it's God's Word. It IS a special book, but it's your personal reference for living. USE IT!
Let's get to those 10 Steps. These 10 Steps or Strategies will help you gain a better understanding and as well as an advantage to WHAT you are reading. Here are the first 3. The remaining 7 Steps are in Part 2.
Step 1. Read THOUGHTFULLY. Think about what you are reading. Proverbs chapter 2 verses 4 and 5 tell us "and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the LORD and find the knowledge of God." Do NOT empty your mind as you read the Bible; fill your mind with what God wants you to learn. Engage your mind. This is important stuff.
Step 2. Read REPEATEDLY. If possible, read the entire book that you want to read in one sitting. Many books of the Bible can be read in under an hour. Why not "sacrifice" some television or internet time and get to know your Heavenly Father? He's waiting for you. While you're reading repeatedly, remember to start at the beginning of the Book. That helps you get the entire context of what you're reading. Keep in mind that although you may have read a particular book maybe dozens of times, it wasn't the "right" time for God to reveal something special to you. God speaks to us at various times and in various ways.
Step 3. Read PATIENTLY. We must have patience when we read. Wherever you are reading, even if it's the 22nd time, read it as if this were the first time. All relationships take time and effort to build; even with God. He knows you (even the hairs on your head), but how well do you know Him? Every word of the Bible tells something more of Him. The Bible is God's "love letter" written specifically for you. Stuck on an idea or meaning? That's okay. Have patience with yourself as well as with the text, it will all come together. Scripture is its own best commentary. Give it time. Knowing God takes an eternity. One last thing with Step 3, the old adage that "familiarity breeds contempt" is true.
Step 4 - Read SELECTIVELY. What I mean by Selectively, is to read and observe the 6 W's of all reading. The WHO - the characters or people mentioned in the text. Who is the author talking to or about? The WHAT - what is the action or purpose of the text. In other words, what's going on? The WHERE - the location or situation that frames the people and action. The way that the apostle Paul would share the Gospel to Jews in Jerusalem would be significantly different than philosophers in Athens. The WHEN - the time or timing of the events. Watch how Biblical characters change over time: Moses, Jacob, Joseph, David. Look how God takes them through various events and trials. When can also put the context of the passage into better perspective. The next W is WHY - what is the meaning of the passage? What is the important take-away? Finally, the WHEREFORE - sometimes I like to think of this as the "so what" or "what's in it for me" W. How is God speaking to you. What's the lesson to learned or the idea to be gleaned.
Step 5 - Read PRAYERFULLY. There are 3 parts to this step. Before you even open to the passage to be read or studied, PRAY! Pray that the Holy Spirit is working with your spirit and mind to illuminate the text. Get that holy light right in there. The second part could be, "HELP! I don't understand what I'm reading." God will help you understand. The third part is Dialoguing. Pray back to God what He has shown you. It's kind of like when you're having a discussion with someone and you repeat back to them what they said so that you are clear with their words; "Lord, did I understand you to mean..."
Step 6 - Read IMAGINATIVELY. This is my favorite step! Bible study need not be boring. Make it exciting even if the excitement is in your own mind. Imaginatively also means to "mix it up." Put yourself into the action: "how would I have reacted when Jesus said..." or "what would it have been like when God parted the Red Sea and the Israelites passed through?" How about reading the text in a different version of the Bible? There are many and they all read a little bit differently. The ultimate meaning is the same, but the words or grammar may differ slightly. If you speak a second or multiple languages, you know that most of the time you can't exactly translate a sentence or thought from one tongue to another. You try to convey the meaning or the idea of the thought or intention. So if you do speak another language, get a Bible in that language too. God's Word is an amazing thing! That's why Scripture is said to be "alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword," (Hebrews 4:12).
Step 7 - Read MEDITATIVELY. Think about what you have just read. Pray about it. Let the Bible saturate your mind. Think about it over the course of the day. Apply it to your life. In your reading, have you come across a verse or short passage that you should memorize? Memorizing Scripture is like putting arrows in your quiver or bullets in your belt. There are always times when that verse may be exactly the encouragement you need to get you through a situation or to comfort someone else.
Step 8 - Read PURPOSEFULLY. 2 Timothy 3:16 states "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful in teaching, rebuking, correcting and training." Not some of Scripture, but all of Scripture. Remember what we said in Part 1? God has a purpose for your life and He wants to show it you piece by piece. Our "job" as believers in Christ is to become more Christ-like.
Step 9 - Read ACQUISITIVELY. In other words, make God's Word yours. Claim it for your life. Consider using a Bible dictionary or atlas as tools to help you better understand the people, places and contexts of the stories presented in the Bible. If there's a passage that you're working through, how about "re-writing" it in your own words and apply it to your life?
Step 10 - Read TELESCOPICALLY. Reading Telescopically means that the Whole of the Bible is more than the sum of its parts. Often times we get so into taking verses apart and picking them to pieces that we forget to put them back together! What would you rather drive: a garage full of car parts or an assemble car?
There they are, the 10 Steps or Strategies to Observing Scripture to help you get the most out of your Bible study. Answer God's call and open His Word. God is waiting and misses His time with you.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. If I can't help, I'll do my best to put you into contact with someone who can. As God blesses you in His word, He wants you to be a blessing to someone else.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me. Teaching is nothing more than serving.

Important Reasons Why Studying Smarter Makes Sense

Why would you want to study smarter and what does that mean to you?
Studying is not just for school. Most people realize that the more you know about something, the more fulfilling your life is, and the more you can potentially earn. This is true in school by way of good grades leading to a better paying job. This is more true in life, where being well versed in something makes you more confident in that subject and affects your confidence overall. As well as the fact that you will be looked upon as someone who does not speak "off the cuff", but does know what they are talking about.
It is fact that the more you know about something, your job, a hobby, etc., the more you can enjoy it, i.e. the more you know about football, cooking, money, etc., the more enjoyable it is. Not to mention the potential to make more money at your job or hobby.
Everyone has a system of studying, a system they came up with themselves or something that they learned. Some work better than others. The thing to do is figure out what works for you. What works for one person may not work for another, but if you were to analyze what works you most probably will find a few commonalities. They do not include spending twice as long looking at the material, staying up all night, or giving up your life so you can just study.
You can find many different "tricks" on the internet, they may or may not work for you, but there are a few things that apply to pretty much everyone.
The most important thing is to figure out what kind of learner you are, auditory, visual, or kinesthetic. Do you learn by watching, listening or touching. Figuring this out is a big step in helping you study smarter. A few other things that contribute directly to your learning is being in the correct frame of mind to learn, deciding what it is you are going to study at that time, making a learning environment that is good for you, and focus
The hardest yet most important part is the focus. The other things are easily observed and figured out but if you do not or cannot focus then you will have a much harder time in your studying.
Sit down and decide to focus and your success in studying smarter is almost guaranteed. Spend a little time investing in yourself by understanding how you learn and you will not be disappointed.
Make studying a part of your life and you will not regret the positive results in all aspects of your life.

Affordable search engine marketing explained

How do you define reasonably priced search engine optimization ?

Search engine marketing that is low cost can certainly not be outlined as affordable seo as such low value providers that are offered are both not one hundred% efficient or do not cover all the points of SEO.

Based on me an inexpensive web optimization service is one which not solely matches your price range but additionally covers all of the points of web optimization which might be required to be performed in your website to improve its search engine ranking.

So how do you resolve which search engine optimization service is finest for you.

I. Go for an organization that has been there for a long time. Go for a corporation that is reliable. You are able to do this by checking the Company particulars :

a) How long their area has been registered - The older the better.
b) Does the company present e-mail id and phone numbers - An organization that just gives you a contact/feedback kind will not be good enough. Electronic mail will be hidden for spam purposes but some details need to be provided.
c) Examine historical past - Has the corporate ever indulged itself into BlackHat Seo - Keep away from such companies.

II. Test to see what all things are coated in your package.

a) See completely what all is roofed in your Seo package. Shortlist sites and do a comparison.
b) Time interval - How much time will it take for the SEO to be done. 
c) Testimonials - It's best to read and test what other individuals are telling about the Search engine optimisation firm moderately than reading the claims and guarantee webpage of the search engine optimization company. Moreover if there's any firm that boasts itself by saying they will present a top ranking then avoid it , no company can guarantee you rankings. Read 'beware of faux web optimization' article here.

III. Verify to see what all areas are covered.

a) Is it just for Google ? - Go for a company that does overall Seo for all search engines.
b) Ensure that the techniques adopted are in response to Webmaster guidelines supplied by major search engines.
c) Latest traits and areas need to be coated - Instance at the moment the areas are running a blog, article writing, social bookmarking etc.

7. Become know as the "go to " person at school or work. When you study smarter you retain what you learn. You are not afraid to talk about that subject. People notice. They will start asking you questions instead of some else who likes to talk but does not know all the facts. You then earn their respect and become the "go to" person. In school or at work this can only increase your reputation.
8. Build confidence in all areas of your life. By knowing that you can recall what you have learned you build up your confidence in that subject. Little by little you start to build up your confidence in whatever you do because you know that people can see that you know what you are talking about.

This will usually last forever. Studies show that an active mind keeps you alive longer, keeps you more healthy, and slows down or prevents some diseases later in life with concern to your mind. Plus having an active mind results in a lot less boredom.
I hope this reinforces in your mind why studying smarter is a very good thing.


An accountant is a person who manages financial issues, including the preparation of financial plans and budgets, as well as the management of accounts and staff welfare.

In most countries, officially licensed accountants are recognized by titles. In the UK, they are termed as “chartered accountants.” In the U.S., accountants are commonly known as “certified public accountants,” whereas in Canada, they are either known as “certified management accountants” or “certified general accountants.” Although most of the accountants in Canada also function as chartered accountants, certified general accountants are also authorized to practice public accounting and auditing in the country. 

The main responsibilities of accountants are to create financial reports and to undertake day-to-day bookkeeping for managers, regulators, and shareholders. Accountants manage a double-entry bookkeeping system wherein there are two entries for every transaction are made, one to a debit account and one to a corresponding credit account. As per accounting rules, the sum of the debit and credit figures should be equal and any discrepancy in the total means that there has been an error. An accountant also audits and inspects the financial records of individuals or businesses, along with preparing financial and tax reports.

In the United States, accountants can obtain specialized certificates in varied fields where they can hold titles like “certified public accountant,” “certified internal auditor,” “certified management accountant,” and “accredited business accountants.” In the U.S., the governmental accounting standard board prepares accounting rules for making financial statements for publicly traded companies and private companies. Further, some of the accounting organizations that influence developing standard rules for accountants in the U.S. are the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB), and the Governmental Accounting Standards Board (GASB).

Some major firms recognized globally are PricewaterhouseCoopers, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, Ernst & Young, and KPMG. Most accountants perform different kinds of accounting like cost accounting, financial accountancy, and management accountancy.  Accountants are skilled professionals and are an integral part of the modern economy.
