Even though anything can be used in its place, day planners are not expensive, and protect your pages much better. They are usually small, and compact, thus they can fit easily in a book bag, and be retrieved easily. O in all aspects these make the best choice for one.

  • Teach Yourself to use It
  • It is important to make this a daily habit. Carry it around with yourself, and look through it from time to time, just to acknowledge you have it on you. When you start going to class, make sure it comes out with the textbook. So it is on hand when the instructor gives homework assignments. This has to become a habit, so it is not forgotten, and dates on homework assignments are forgotten. Some people name them, so that it gives the planner more importance, and least likely to be forgotten.

  • Record All Necessary Information in It
  • When the assignment is given, do not write every word the instructor says, but all the important information. In this, it is meant; chapters to be read, what papers are to be done, and how, and when to have them in by, what projects are needed, and when they are due. Anything that will help with the assigned homework, needs to be jotted down.

  • Read it Every Morning and Night
  • Every night, read it to make sure you have everything ready for that day's class. Double check due dates, and all assorted material are put together for that class assignment. Then in the morning, as everything is packed and readied, go over the list of things due that day, and what comes with them. Make sure everything is packed and ready to go, so that nothing is left behind by accident.
