Axia College of University of Phoenix
This is my student Survival Guide that will aid me through my time here at Axia College. The guide will contain an action plan that will help me to be successful in my education. I have learned a lot already in my first nine weeks here at Axia College. I have learned how to be an active student and achieve academic honesty. I have also learned to manage time wisely and achieve goals. This guide will be a reference to me throughout my time here.
Using Axiaâ€™s Educational Resources
For any resources I need such as research and looking up articles, I will visit the Axia Library. The two databases I ...view middle of the document...
I will never allow anyone else to do my homework for me. I will never copy or pay to have my homework done for me. I will manage my time wisely so that I will never have to rush through my homework and possibly feel the need to do one of these things. I will always submit an honest paper.
Setting and Achieving Goals
I have learned that setting and achieving goals is very important for becoming a successful student. I will refer to my assignment on setting goals and use this as a reference and goal plan. In this assignment I have outlined a couple of my goals and the steps I will take in achieving each goal. These goals are not only the goals I have for myself as a student but, goals that will help me after I receive my degree. I will try and stick to this plan as best as I can. I will do everything to avoid such obstacles that will keep me from accomplishing these goals. I will make sure that friends and family will not interfere. I will try to be the best student I can be here at Axia College. Getting my degree is one of my biggest steps in accomplishing all the goals that I have set for myself. I will put all effort forward to meet these goals one step at a time. I will never set goals that are impossible for me to meet.
Managing Time Wisely
I will always try to manage my time wisely. This is an important factor in my success here at Axia College. I will try not to overload my schedule so that I give myself the proper time that should be dedicated to homework and class participation. I will try to stick to a regular schedule without adding any unplanned events. This will only screw up my schedule and possibly take away from the time that I should spend on school. Poor management skills will only lower my grades and not allow me to be the best student I can be. If I stick with the schedule that I have planned then I will not ever have to rush through homework assignments. Rushing through them will only produce poor work and lower grades. I will always manage my time wisely because returning to school is very important to me and is one of my life goals.
Fostering Reading Comprehension and Retention
Reading comprehension is a good quality to possess in furthering ones education. I do have good reading skills and I am able to comprehend what I am reading. If there is ever a time that I have trouble, I will refer to the SQ3R study method. Here, there are some helpful study hints for accuracy and cutting down the time that I would spend reading. ...
