Plan to distribute your time

The art of studying includes many other things that probably you have not seriously considered up to now, for example: finding an appropriate place where you can be free of any factor of distraction; making sure the lighting in that place is good (*it is better to try to use the day light as much as possible); getting used to withstand the temptation of postponing the study; having next to the text some paper or notebooks to take notes; etc.

Some of these things can seem stupid, others not. However, if you recognize that they are important, is enough. In effect, you need some help to do the things that seem a bit stupid.
For example:
         Can you read? This is stupid-you will think-. Of course, you can read. However, have you ever reflected on the way you read? So many people read so badly than, in comparison with the people that read properly, they are considered practically illiterate. Have you ever thought about how fast you read and how fast you could read? The same way, have you ever thought about how many things you can remember from the text you just read?
 Most of the students cannot remember more than half of what they've read.
Can you decide what is the most convenient to remember from what you read?
Do you pay attention and observe the reference sections that appear in between the texts?
What do you do when you start reading a topic? (some students close the book or study text and do something else)
How many times do you read the same topic? How?...
Do you read the study texts the same way you read a novel? If not, what is the difference?
Let's say these questions are more than enough for now. The best students usually know them and answer them correctly. We will analyze each of them in this guide, for you to learn how to study.
