How can I learn to study well?
Based on my professors, if you want to succeed in accountancy course you need to read during your leisure time and set aside your hobbies or vices. Sometimes, I’m forcing myself to read my accounting books but all I do is stare at the words in front of me like I can’t absorb anything. God! I’m upset that sometimes, I mean most of the time, I can’t understand fully whatever I’ve read.
I can almost see that if you’re an accountancy student, you should do a lot of effort just to finish reading a whole book. Though sometimes, reading a whole book is not enough. I know that! But I cannot just do it.
I’m just a beginner, but as a beginner I should start to discipline myself. I should learn how to manage my time. Shorten my leisure time and prolong my study time.
I’m used to Mañana Habit ever since. I just study a week before the exam to freshen my mind. After that, I forget everything. But this time, I should not forget even the simplest detail I’m reading. I’ll be needing it not just for the coming term exam but also in the future, if I would be lucky to take the board exam.
Furthermore, technically accountancy students can sometimes be called as Math wizards but honestly, all we do is basic math (addition, subtraction, multiplication, division). It’s just deeper this time. You need to analyze well. I also suggest to practice yourself how to become a perfectionist. In worksheet, if you made a single mistake, it could lead you to a huge mistake which will make your worksheet a trash. Also, you should be familiar with the positions of each number in your calculator so that all you need to do is to read the problem while letting your hand manipulate the calculator without disturbing your eyes.
Moreover, sometimes I’m not scared with the professors; I’m scared with the subjects. Sometimes my name was called and I don’t have any idea in my mind. I can’t even understand the terms my professors are discussing. I’m also having difficulties about the journal entries. Ugh. But I’m not thinking of changing my course. Not now. And never I will. I can do this!
I want "CPA" added in my name.
