Not Enough Time For Homework: Three Good Techniques You Should Try


If you are limited in time for homework, there are still things you can do to help make homework go by faster, things which can be applied when you are pressed for time. These three techniques can be used for any subject or course and using them can help you get all of your work done faster. Remember that not all techniques work for everyone, so be sure to test a handful of options and find what works best for you:

  1. If you are answering questions it is imperative that you look over the questions before you read the associated chapters or sections. If you read the questions first you will have a better understanding of what you are searching for. This will help you to find the answers faster and get through homework at a quicker rate.

  2. When you are working it is important that you have highlighters nearby so that you can mark off important words in your assignment details or in your notes for books. The last thing you want is to put forth a great deal of effort only to forget midway through what you are supposed to be doing or what chapters you were supposed to be reviewing. When you are working you also want to make sure you highlight anything you don't understand. You can always come back to that at a later time. For example, if there is one question out of five that you do not understand, you can move onto the next questions and return to the one question that you didn't understand when you are done with the rest of your assignment this will help you to avoid wasting time .

  3. When you take notes make sure that you write down the corresponding bibliographic information especially if you are writing down a statistic or fact. This will help you to save time when you have to put together a final reference page for works cited. You want to make sure that you always write down corresponding bibliographic information if you copy a page out of a reference book. You do not want to photocopy of page only to find out later that you forgot to write down what book the page came from. This will only result in you having to return to the library and search for that exact book or having to scrap the source altogether.
