Every semester, students are plagued with what seems like a never ending midterm or final exam schedule. Depending on the difficulty level of your classes, sometimes, every aspect of your non-school life has to be put on hold in order to bury yourself in your books and successfully prepare for your exams.
It can get tough when you attempt to study with your friends. Either they can be distracting because they don’t have as tough of an exam schedule, or maybe they would prefer to spend their time gossiping instead of focussing. In order to combat these distractions that may inhibit your studying success, it may be imperative that you find a place or two where you know that you will be able to focus in isolation.
If you don’t necessarily mind a little background noise, going to a coffee shop and getting a small table for yourself and your laptop can honestly be one of the most productive environments. The buzzing conversations around you typically aren’t too loud and if you ever need a quick caffeine fix, the coffee counter is only a few feel away. Sometimes it gets tricky when you go to a popular coffee shop because odds are that you may run into someone that you know. However, if your study supplies are spread across the table and your headphone are in, there’s no reason why someone would bother you at this type of location.
Another good place to study for an examp is one of your campus libraries. Libraries are typically speckled with students who are actively studying, just like you intend to do. Libraries offer a productive environment free from distractions. Plus, when you’re at the library, your friends will respect your need to focus and will be less likely to try and distract you from your studies.
