Prioritizing your study

You should prioritize such that you get better grade (and understanding!) comparing to the number of hours you study. Refer to the textbook(s) and research online if you find difficulty understanding a topic. Make a list such that you can get clarification from your faculty.

  1. Do a Sample exams- try to solve it online. 
  2. Follow the mindmaps. Most questions will be from the central topics. Use a business model (canvas) to match it to an organization.
  3. Follow the slides- particularly the diagrams. Understand the diagrams. Often the slides has limited information- only the top-level ones. If you feel getting lost- go to the textbook(s). You will need the textbook to better understand the slides particularly on topics you are not very comfortable.
  4. Read the textbook. There is no better way to understand the topic and you will be confident with your answers. You can supplement slides with Wikipedia and your goggle-research.

Other great ideas:

  • Create cheat-sheets as you study
  • Practice solved problems in the book (if any)
  • Practice assignments (if any)
  • Use Wikipedia and/or Google to get additional insight on a problem
