College Study Hints
How to Prevent Homework From Screwing Up Real Life

Observation: These pages offer better advice that you will get on most other sites, and this site does it without ads trying to sell you stuff.

As you start college, various well-meaning people will give you excellent advice, most of which you will ignore, even though you are destined eventually to give the same advice to others. Such advice tends involve the word "don't."

The little essays here are intended to be more helpful than that by being more specific (and less negative). You will probably ignore this advice too, but since these essays are wordy, there is at least some chance for something to strike a responsive chord. So read them and prosper already.

Learn to concentrate, to give all your attention to the thing at hand, and then to be able to put it aside and go on to the next thing without confusion. Actually, you can finish any task much quicker if you concentrate on it for fifteen minutes than if you give it divided attention for thirty.

—Eleanor Roosevelt (1884-1962)

Nothing so needs reforming as other people's habits.

—Mark Twain (1835-1910)

I love to learn, but I don't like to be taught.

—Winston Churchill (1874-1965)

When a man's knowledge is not in order, the more he has of it the greater will be his confusion.

—Herbert Spencer
