Update and Studying Tips
Sorry I have been AWOL for so long! I will not bore you with excuses, rather, I thought I should just start off where I left off. It's is good to be back and thank you for your patience to anyone who is still following this blog!
I thought it worth mentioning though that the primary reasons for my absence is that along with working full time I have also recently completed and passed The Professional Certificate in Marketing from The Chartered Institute of Marketing. This is a great course and I thoroughly recommend it to anyone who wants to persue a career in marketing or who wants to market their own business better.
My best study tips are:
1) Engage with your peer group
Don't be selfish. Help other people and they will help you. You class mates will be one of your best resources of knowledge so get together, get to know each other and help each other through.
2) Learn how to pass the exam or assignment
This sounds simple but how often do we all start reading rather than learning how to answer the questions. Base your revision around past papers, certain thems always come up so, as a starting point, learn to answer these questions.
3) Cut yourself some slack
You can't be expected to know everything, just get the basics covered first and work from there.
4) Avoid the post mortem
What's done is done. There is no point dwelling over the paper. As long as you've done your best that's all you can do.
5) Look after yourself
Eat well, sleep well and take walks as regular breaks. You will need it!
All the very best to anyone taking exams soon. I hope some of these tips are helpful!
