Three Part Study System:

Part 1: Build a Study Plan

In part 1, you will build a customized study plan.

You will always know the answers to these questions:

  • How much study time do I have? You already have a lot of things that take up your day. How much study time do you have available after everything else you have to do? You’ll know that number to the minute.
  • What are the specific tasks I need to get done? You have a lot to get done in many classes, but it’s spread out across multiple syllabi. No more! You’re going to get all your tasks organized in one place.
  • How long is each task going to take? You can’t plan without knowing how long each task is going to take. You’ll know how long each reading will take (to the minute) and you will be able to estimate the time you’ll need for tests and assignments. We’ll show you how.
  • Do I have time to get every task done? Students have to juggle a continuously changing and complicated mix of readings, papers, projects, and exams. Some take minutes, others take hours, and some may take weeks. Knowing when to start is critical to having a good study plan. Shovel works with all of the above information and lets you know if you can get everything done on time or if you need to adjust your schedule.

Part 2: Create Powerful Study Habits

In part 2, you will learn the best study habits. These are the behaviors that help you be as efficient as possible when studying.

Part 3: Learn How To Study Effectively

In part 3 you will master the most effective study methods.

  • How am I going to take notes? Professors provide a ton of valuable information during your classes and lectures, but it doesn’t do you any good if you just sit through them. You need to be actively engaged in every lecture by taking notes. The catch is that you need to take notes the right way, so that you can test yourself when you’re getting ready for your exams.
  • How am I going to do my readings? You can waste a tremendous amount of time reading and re-reading your textbooks. We’ll show you how study your textbooks in a way that will set it up for exam prep in the shortest amount of time.
  • How am I going to study for exams? If you do everything we talk about, studying for exams will be very easy. But we’ll step you through the specific exam prep techniques that work best for retention.
  • How am I going to write a paper? You need a system for writing your papers because you’ll be writing a lot of them. We’ll give you that system.

I’ll take you through these step by step.
