  2. Hi, can you help me with this please? I am taking a online Psychology course. The teacher is a stickler about your punctuation and grammar. The following is my assignment and then my response.


    For this assignment, I'd like you to think about your study habits using the information gleaned from the information from the "Psychology in Action" section beginning on page PIA-2.
    Make your own thread. First, tell us how you have traditionally studied for exams. Are you satisfied with this method? Has it worked well for you?
    Second, have you learned anything new from your readings about how you do (or should) study? Discuss in some detail how this information has changed the way you plan on studying (or hasn't, although I suspect well all could learn something here, including me).
    Lastly, comment on at least one other person's techniques in their thread.
    Per the syllabus, you need to make your first post by Thursday and you need to post on at least three separate days (replies are posts, as are revisions). You have until Saturday noon to finish.



    If I were to describe my study habits, I would say I am a read aloud and note taker kind of person. I would also say I am a last minute crammer as well. Taking notes has always worked for me and reading aloud also helps me to remember what I just read. As far as last minute cramming, I feel it is not a healthy study habit. I tend to draw a blank the next day during the exam. After reading the section on studying, I’ve learned to improve the study habits that I have and the reason why I shouldn’t do the last minute cramming. I also found it interesting they give you tips on how much sleep you should have and as why it is to have a good night rest when studying for an exam.


    Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.
