E. Concentration

This is a hard one for many students but you can teach yourself to concentrate. Try to sit down with a small assignment for 10 minutes and concentrate on doing this. How did it go? How did you feel? After this first test give yourself a reward. When you are ready then try it again for 15 minutes. You can gradually raise the amount of time but be sure that you stay focused and concentrated.

Many students complain that they cannot concentrate. Consider some of the questions and answers here to help you improve your concentration. Concentration while you work also has a beneficial effect on your memory.
