So I had a math exam yesterday. The thing is, I had alot, and by alot I mean ALOT, of time to study beforehand and yet

I didn't study at all until the last day before the exam. Yes you can call me lazy and whatnot, but isn't something that

EVERYONE does ? I have no clue where this habit of 'procrastination' came from but I wanna know, do you guys often

"Put off till tomorrow what you can do today" ?

It's common and I think almost everyone does it more or less. I know only a few who are disciplined enough not to procrastinate.

Edit: I do it myself to some extent but I still succeed fairly well in my studies. Nonetheless, I would be much happier if I got rid of my assignments right away.

I don't think thats quite the case, while I'm sure there is a good percent of people that do procrastinate when it comes to tests, there are just as many if not more that actually study and keep up with the course. It all depends on how much your interested in the subject or how motivated you are.

Honestly the best time to study, just from my personal experience, is about an hour after you eat dinner, then if you can about an hour after breakfast the day of your exam. I was like you all through college. I always studied as close to my tests as possible. I did pretty well. Deans list every semester and all that stuff. Carried a 3.8 GPA. It's always worse if you over study.



I needed to edit this and also say. The best studying is showing up for class, participating and doing all the rest of the work along the way. If you understand as you go, studying will be a breeze.

Motivation is key
