Find a specific place (or places) that you can use for studying (for example, the campus libraries, vacant classrooms, quiet areas in Squires Student Center, your bedroom at home, etc.)

Ensure that your study area does not have the following:
Don't set a goal as vague and large as: "I am going to spend all day Saturday studying!" You will only set yourself up for failure and discouragement. Instead, take the time block that you have scheduled for study and set a reachable study goal (for example: finish reading three sections of chapter seven in my psychology text, or complete one math problem, or write the rough draft of the introduction to my English paper, etc.). Set your goal when you sit down to study but before you begin to work.
Set a goal that you can reach. You may, in fact, do more than your goal but set a reasonable goal even if it seems too easy.
