THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND

Learning styles differ from child to child. Their study habits seem to show

differences in how they become skilled at and how earnest they are about

learning. Study habits are the ways that the children have formed during the

school years. It can be good or bad ones. Good study habits include being

ordered, keeping good notes, reading your textbook, listening in class, and

working every day. While poor study habits include skipping class, not doing your

work, watching TV or playing video games instead of studying, and losing your

work.

For students of any age, studying is the factuality of life, with tests and

exams commonly raising stress levels and daily workloads. Many students give

an account that they fret about burnout due to the pressures of achieving good

grades. Some adopt a very organized and calm approach and study consistently

through the year, while others tend to leave things more or less to the last

moment and then panic and try and cram in the work. While some students are
able to study effortlessly. Often accompanied by a lack of slumber, exercise, and

fresh air, the stress of worrying about results can take its toll on academic

performance, study habits, and overall cognitive functioning.

The study habits are affected by both external and internal conditions.

One external factor would be the physical location of the study area. Students

learn best when they study in a specific location where external distraction is at a

minimum. (Free of TV, stereo, interruptions by family and friends, or telephone,

pager or computer contact.) There are two arenas of thought on this - one

school says distractions enhance the power to stay focused.

Through studying the students may develop their academic skills and

make better their test scores and grades. They also transfer their learned skills to

other aspects of their lives, noticeably improving their overall aptitudes.
