The summer is a great time to relax, hang out with friends, and recover from the long academic year. However, just because you’re having a lot of fun, doesn’t mean you should completely overlook the year ahead. Summer can also be a great time to get a jump on your next school year to make it even better and take off some of the stress once it’s time to get back to business. Here are three tips on how to use your summer holidays to prep for an even more successful school year.
Somehow, reading a book that you don’t have to finish in a week takes infinitely less time to read than one that you do. You’ll probably read a couple books over the summer anyway, whether it’s at the beach or on your break at work, why not make it a productive read instead of re-reading Twilight for the 38th time? Go online, talk to previous students, or even e-mail your profs to find out the required reading for your upcoming classes. You can pick a few books at random, or, if you have the full syllabus, pick readings that you know will be covered during a hectic time of year, like near exams or Christmas break. This way, when these readings come around in class, you’ll already have them done and can either relax, or use the extra time to review and get caught up on everything else that’s due.
