Things I Learned about Myself as a College Student

The score I received on the study skill inventory that where high are textbooks, note taking, memory, and concentration. The study skill inventory that I scored low on is test prep and time management. The reason why I scored low in test prep was because I do not think I prepared well for test. I also believe that I scored low on this because I do not take proper notes that are full in details. I do not put enough time into studying like I should. The reason why I scored low on time management is because I don’t manage my time well. I also do not have a set schedule where I plan on doing school work. Which leads me to procrastinate so I decide to do everything the last minute right before it is due. One thing that I learned about myself as a college student this semester is that I need to push myself to study more and take better notes because it will pay off when exams come. Especially because college course are much more complicated than high school because you don’t have 9 months to learn everything in one textbook. The second thing that I learned about myself as a college student is that I am more independent and I don’t rely on my parent to pay for my college textbooks or tuition. I pay it on my own. I also have to push myself more to get things done on my own. My parents are not there to nag me to do something or help me. The third thing that I learned about myself as a college student is balancing my social life from work and school.
