what is the best way to study to get a good grade on a test and really learn the material? I want to shoot for at least a 90 but the class is so hard.
Everyone has different styles when it comes to studying that works for them personally. I'd try different ways to study while quizzing yourself that way you are studying for the test but finding a beneficial way that works for you. It is always good to have a goal, its even better if you write them down. My study habits before a test consist of reading over ALL notes taken in class, even if it was from the last unit. Tests can be accumulative so its always a good idea to review. Look over all handouts given to you from the teacher, review any power points the teacher may have posted or shared with you. Any material given can potentially be a question on the test so its essential to pay attention in class for key review points your teacher may provide. I wish you the best of luck! <3
I eat way too many candies throughout the day, do you know a way to stop this bad habit?
Everyone has bad habits, mine personally is chewing ice. I have gotten better with not chewing it but its just a natural habit I have formed. As for you candy eating habit goes, I recommend trying to replace the candy with another food you like to eat. Maybe replace it with fruit or veggies. Every time you get the urge to eat candy, grab that alternative food. Sooner or later the habit will fade and you wont even realize it!
Problem: "I get nervous when I have to talk in big groups but it’s something I’m constantly having to do, do you have any ideas how I can be comfortable speaking to others and large groups!"
Response: We all get nervous! its okay! The key is confidence, I am aware that's easier said then done, but if you are confident and prepared to speak to these groups then they have no reason to doubt you! Always practice a few times with some friends just to get comfortable and memorize some of the info you are presenting. A big thing that scares people is looking into the crowd you are talking too. This can be conquered by picking a few people spread out throughout the room and just move from one person to the next while presenting. Don't stare them down or look at them for to long though because it can get creepy, but if picking people is not an option then pick spots on the wall close to eye level with your audience. Yes, I'm telling you to talk to a wall, but the crowd is listening and you'll ace your presentation.
For the better
People always tend to say "change for the better." That's not true in my opinion. You shouldn't change who you are for anyone or anything. Changing into a different person and growing into the better person you can be up are totally different. When you grow, you learn from your mistakes and pick yourself and become wiser.
Here's where the advice all comes together!!
