What is Homework?
Homework commonly consists of assignments that instructors assign to be completed at home by students. The general purpose of homework assignments is to reinforce the knowledge that you learn in the classroom. These assignments allow for extra practice, so that you can refine your skills and knowledge in a particular area.
What is Studying?
Studying, on the other hand, refers to the time spent going over material you learned. Many of you may think of studying as what you do to prepare for an exam; however, it is best to set aside regular time to study to be sure you understand all the concepts you are learning so you do not fall behind. Studying includes making flashcards, taking detailed notes, making outlines, and reading.
SO HOW DO I DO THIS? First you should ask yourself, "What is it I really do not understand?"

Tip #1: Choose a quiet place to study – It is important that you find a quiet space where you can do your studies. Find a place that is not distracting to you. For example, if you are easily distracted you should not study near a television or in a crowded location. Instead, choose a quiet room, a library, or a bookstore where people study instead of socialize.
Tip #2: Set a specific time to study –Just as you would for any other appointment or commitment, mark a time in your calendar dedicated exclusively to study time.
Tip #3: Make sure you have all the study materials you need – Be sure that you have all the materials you need to study before you begin.
Tip #4: Keep a positive outlook about studying – Many students dread studying, perhaps because they aren’t doing it right or they feel it isn’t helpful to their success.
Tip #5: Do not procrastinate – You have undoubtedly been warned about procrastination, but you might not understand the reason why this practice is detrimental.
