"Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement.
Nothing can be done without hope and confidence."
-- Helen Keller

          During my years of being a non-student, I would usually study for tests...

in my own, special way.  I’d glance over the reading that I hadn’t done – maybe

do a little highlighting.  I’d glance through my homework (what little I had

done) and I’d glance through the lecture notes (of the classes that I had

attended.)  That should have been enough, right?  I would either put forth this

feeble effort or I would just decide to drop the class right before a test so I

didn’t have to study at all!  What a system!  This may come as a complete

surprise to you, but it didn’t work!

 

          The truth is that I was just completely unmotivated.    I had no idea what

I wanted to do with my life, so I wasn’t excited about anything.  It’s hard to

keep driving when you don’t know your destination.

 

          So, when I found the wonderful world of math (haha, that sounds so

dorky), I got the motivation that I needed.  I had to get some study skills –

good study skills – asap.  There were math tests coming at me fast!

 

          Between turning myself into a math machine and being a teacher for so

long, I’ve got this study thing down pat.  Follow these tips for math and your

other classes and you won’t be sorry!
