I absolutely love to read, but when it’s assigned… eh, not so much.
Unfortunately, almost every class you’ll take in college will have assigned readings – and those readings would take up far too much of your time if you tried to do them all.
So how do you decide on which readings to do thoroughly, which to skim quickly, and which to skip entirely?
That’s what this week’s video is all about.
In it, you’ll learn how to triage your assignments – how to smartly prioritize the most urgent ones (the ones that’ll affect your grade the most).
