My friend's roommate is always so stressed out over school. He spends a ridiculous amount of time studying and always struggles to do well in his classes. It really bothers him. He asked me for advice a couple weeks ago, so we talked about it. We talked about his study habits and I found out what he was doing wrong and offered suggestions. I asked him what he does to study, which was reading notes/the book over and over. I asked if he did any actual practice problems and he didn't. He only read, never actually did any problems that weren't assigned. I suggested to do practice problems (since you know, reading the same things over and over isn't on the test, but problems are). Also, I was able to calm his anxiety about it. Talk to him and get him to relax over it. I saw him yesterday and he had told me that he took my advice and ended up doing really well! He incorporated practice problems into his study habits. He even had a direct example of how it helped him. Someone in the class told him an algorithm for solving a certain type of problem. Normally he would just take it as truth, but he tried using it a few times beforehand. He said it kept giving him the wrong answers. So he found another way to solve it that worked. There was a problem on the test like that, he got it right using the way he figured out and the other person got it wrong. He would have gotten it wrong had he not tried it out beforehand. He usually struggles for Bs, but with better study habits and because he was way more relaxed, he got an A. I'm pretty proud of him. Anyone else help people like this? Any other stories?
