Managing your reading

You’re expected to do 12 hours of study per unit per week. Two to four of these hours are in class, leaving the remainder for private study. The majority of this should be spent reading, and this intensifies when you are researching for assignments. So there’s a LOT of reading you have to do, and you’ll need some strategies to manage the load. Damian Gleeson

Watch this short video to learn how to read effectively. Using effective reading strategies can help you:

  • save time
  • prepare for assignments and exams
  • keep up with weekly readings, and
  • learn and revise your unit’s content.

It’s impossible to succeed in your assignments or exams without being an effective reader. The sooner you can master effective reading strategies, the more likely it is that you’ll get the high grades you desire. End transmission.
