Increase your efficiency - advice from a graduate

For most adult students, being a full time graduate student is one of many full time roles you fulfill. Most are also full time parents, employees, etc., so it is important to use your study time efficiently. As you embark on your academic journey, take time to reflect on how you learn best. Do you need to study with music or silence? At home, a library, or coffee shop? Take notes or highlight text? Can you block two hours to read and retain material or do you need short bursts of reading followed by another short activity (favorite TV show, cleaning, exercise, for example)?
