One of the biggest things I’ve struggled with when it comes to studying in college is not having many sources to turn to. It can be hard to endure studying for midterms and all your exams when you’re not sure the best methods of studying. Here are some of my favorite sources for finding what studying strategies work best for you!

How To Study

This website is really helpful because it has different guides and methods by subject. It also has general study tips, reading comprehension tips, and organizational tips. What I linked to was reading comprehension tips because I found those especially helpful. Sometimes reading my college textbooks can get a bit overwhelming and these tips really helped make that less daunting.

Study Guides and Strategies 

Some of these seem pretty basic knowledge you may already know but there are plenty of helpful guides as well. I found the time management guide especially helpful. I found the memorizing strategies helpful as well because I can always use those!

Study Guide Zone 

This one has so many different study guides that it can be overwhelming. There’s a lot of options here but that’s a good thing! Just find what works best for you. It’s pretty guaranteed that these site will have whatever subject you’re struggling with. They also have guides for those of you that are graduate students as well!

Academic Tips 

Yet another useful website filled with interesting tips. This one consists more of general tips than in depth looks by subject. However, the information is very specific and might be helpful for you guys for whatever you may be struggling with. It also may be useful for students that are not in college yet and are looking to get a head start on figuring things out.

SR Trends

SR Trends isn’t specifically a study blog. But it is a blog dedicated to college life and I found these basic study tips extremely helpful. It’s well researched and also has super pretty pictures to go along with it. What could be better than that?

Study Hack

Study Hack has tons and tons of cool resources and strategies. I personally enjoyed the speed reading, flash cards, active reading, and memory techniques that Kat gives us. It’s a really awesome and well organized blog that I strongly recommend!

Dani Dearest 

This is a personal college blog which is something I always enjoy since these are students that are actually going through this currently. I love Dani’s post about making your own binder dividers and I found that to be seriously helpful. I also love all of her posts about organizing and there’s ton of them! She gets really specific about organizing your computer and other applications which can be useful for those of you who are balancing all of your college assignments, schedules, or whatever else it may be!

Nitty Gritty English

A tool for those of you that may be struggling with writing college essays. This site has tips about avoiding plagiarism, proofreading, finding a topic for a research paper, and much much more. I think every college student could learn a few things from checking this one out.

Hopefully you’ll learn some new information from these 8 different resources!
