Studying involves focus, concentration and effort. Multitasking can sabotage your learning.
Dr Chew surveyed students about how they thought they’d do on an upcoming exam. He found weaker students were overconfident, underprepared and unaware how little they knew. To study effectively you need to improve study skills.
