This page tells you information about how I spent my time how I much time I spent doing some this and the % of what of the time that I take to do it. For instance I have 81% for musical so that means I take a lot of time doing musical stuff.

This picture on the top tells you how I spend a day that is 24 hours .For example I spent 7 hours at school I don’t work so its 0 hours and so on. While or when I write the hours it subtracts from the clock so I can keep track of how many hours I have left, I had 1.6 hours left so I just put it in other.

This is about Cornell Notes, what they are what they do and more.

· The Cornell note-taking system is a note-taking system devised in the 1950s by Walter Pauk, an education professor at Cornell University

· The Cornell method provides a systematic format for condensing and organizing notes. The student divides the paper into two columns: the note-taking column (usually on the right) is twice the size of the questions/key word column (on the left).

· The student should leave five to seven lines, or about two inches, at the bottom of the page.

· Notes from a lecture or teaching are written in the note-taking column; notes usually consist of the main ideas of the text or lecture, and long ideas are paraphrased. Long sentences are avoided; symbols or abbreviations are used instead.

· To assist with future reviews, relevant questions (which should be recorded as soon as possible so that the lecture and questions will be fresh in the student's mind) or key words are written in the key word column.

· These notes can be taken from any source of information, such as fiction and nonfiction books, DVDs, lectures, text books, etc.

· Within 24 hours of taking the notes, the student must revise and write questions and then write a brief summary in the bottom five to seven lines of the page. This helps to increase understanding of the topic.

· When studying for either a test or quiz, the student has a concise but detailed and relevant record of previous classes.

· When reviewing the material, the student can cover the note-taking (right) column while attempting to answer the questions/keywords in the key word or cue (left) column.

· The student is encouraged to reflect on the material and review the notes regularly.

· This explains to us what a mind map is where and who made it.

· A mind map is a diagram used to visually outline information.

· A mind map is often created around a single word or text, placed in the center, to which associated ideas, words and concepts are added.

· Major categories radiate from a central node, and lesser categories are sub-branches of larger branches.

· Categories can represent words, ideas, tasks, or other items related to a central key word or idea.

· Mind maps can be drawn by hand, either as "rough notes" during a lecture or meeting, for example, or as higher quality pictures when more time is available. An example of a rough mind map is illustrated.

· Other terms for this diagramming style are: "spider diagrams," "spider grams," "spider graphs," "webs", "mind webs", or "webbing", and "idea sun bursting".[2][3] (A "spider diagram" used in mathematics and logic is different.)

· Buzan suggests the following guidelines for creating mind maps:

· Start in the center with an image of the topic, using at least 3 colors.

· Use images, symbols, codes, and dimensions throughout your mind map.

· Select key words and print using upper or lower case letters.

This tells you about my studying habits how I study

You can prepare yourself to succeed in your studies.Try to develop and appreciate the following habits: Take responsibility for yourselfRecognize that in order to succeed you need to make decisions about your priorities, your time, and your resources Center yourself around your values and principles Don’t let friends and acquaintances dictate what you consider important Put first things firstFollow up on the priorities you have set for yourself, and don't let others, or other interests, distract you from your goals Discover your key productivity periods and placesMorning, afternoon, or evening? Find spaces where you can be the most focused and productive. Prioritize these for your most difficult study challenges

1. This page tells us ways how to improve our studying skills. So there is the wrong way of doing it them there is the correction for example Studying with Friends

1. Explanation: While fun, sometimes you may lose out on quality study time by socializing. Fix: Find one good study-buddy if you like group studying.  Otherwise, "just say no" when everyone wants to study together. 

1. There is one too that tells us that it is not good to study with music on because you will not absorb new information

1. It is better to start studying for an exam two or more week earlier so you won’t have to read something that is a lot to learn in one day or so.

1. It is better to study sitting on a chair than on your bed because you can easily fall asleep when you are on your bed

1. It is not better for you to snack during studying than eating large amounts of food because that can take more time than for you to eat.

1. When you are studying for an exam or something or absorbing a lot of information in the car studying is not the best it is better when you are at you study table or something.

1. Coffee might be the best liquid to drink when you want to be waked up or to stay wake but it damages your body so a glass of water will be better.

1. Multi-Tasking Explanation: Many people are able to multi-task, meaning they can do several different things at once.  This can be good for daily tasks.  When it comes to studying, you may not retain as much material as if you were to focus purely on one task. Fix: Before a big exam, drop everything else for at least 24 hours and focus purely on the studying.  When it is complete, you can return to your multi-tasking. Studying during a commute

1. Explanation:  Many people enjoy reading on a train, bus, or car to work and school.  These environments are wonderful for light reads, but not necessarily for intense studying.

1. Fix: Use the commute (if you have one) for light studying, such as memorization, repetition, and review.  Do not use this time to learn new information
