English

Hi, Can someone help me with my online Psychology assignment? She is a stickler for punctuation and grammar. I have not taken English yet. I need all the help I can get. The following is my assignment and 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.

  1. Read all this aloud to someone. You will hear things you'll know need deleting or correcting.

    1. I'd get rid of the following extraneous words and phrases:

    If I were to describe my study habits, I would say

    I would also say


    2. There are many other extraneous and repetitive words and phrases. Go through this and cut all unnecessary words.

    3. Also, this sentence doesn't make good sense:
    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.
    Do you understand why?

    Let me know.

  2. Does this sound any better?

    My study habits consist of reading aloud, note taking and last minute cramming. The reading aloud and note taking has always worked well for me. Last minute cramming hasn’t work very well. I seem to always draw a blank on test day. I found while reading the chapter on study habits, that there are ways to improve my ways of studying and why I should stop doing the last minute cramming. I also found S.Q.R.R.R. (Survey, Question, Read, Recite and Recall/Review) very resourceful. I intend to apply what I have learned to better my studying habits.

  3. Yes, better. I've made a few changes ... be sure to compare carefully.

    My study habits consist of reading aloud, taking notes, and last-minute cramming. Reading text and notes aloud and note-taking has always worked well for me. Last-minute cramming hasn’t work very well. I seem to always draw a blank on test day. While reading the chapter on study habits, I found that there are ways to improve my study methods and reasons why I should stop doing the last-minute cramming. I also found "Survey, Question, Read, Recite and Recall/Review" (SQRRR) very helpful. I intend to apply what I have learned to better my study habits.

  4. In the second sentence, the main verb should be "have" not "has" since there are 3 subjects there.
