To become a successful student, you should learn well. But someday you may get stuck with your courses, so we made a list of recommendations and studying techniques that will improve your studying.
1) Always look through different, multiple sources.
Don’t think that those few assigned text(s) will give you enough knowledge. Try to get more information from different sources. The more redundant basics will help you solidify a learning foundation, and because of the delivery variety, you will more likely remain an attentive listener during studying. Your goal is to look for “resonant” descriptions that leave an imprint on you, like that very special teacher you had in third grade. This is very important because lots of textbooks are weak at delivery, but not all in the same ways. A particular (or peculiar) diagram in a book you found on your own at the library could be the best answer to your dream of an intelligible exposition or illustration of current questions.

Having a wish to gain a grant scholarship may become a big deal for you. Take into consideration that requirements differ from one organization to another. You should collect a big amount of documents, and if the documental package is not complete, it won’t be considered by the fund. The main document you will need to gain a grant – a completed standard form. You can find it on the website or send an e-mail request.
Another important paper that you will need is a banking form. It should confirm that you can’t pay the tuition fees. If you are unemployed, it may be a document about income of your parents, or if you are employed– a document about your income from employer. Continue reading
One of the biggest problems of getting a place in US college, is the cost of educational program. American colleges and universities set their fees according to paying capacity of their local residents. The average tuition fee for a bachelor program in the US costs $$ 8.000-18.000, but some colleges may cost up to $ 30.000 per year. However, you can try your luck by seeking the financial aid for international students. You can start with contacting the American fonds that are ready to give scholarships or grants to foreign students and postgraduates on certain conditions.
We do not claim that it is easy to get the financial aid. The level of difficulty will depend on what program you have chosen and where you wish to learn (e.g., students with bachelor program have less chances to get money, than students with master program), what is your specialty, academic success, financial status of the family and so on. But the effort is worthwhile. And the more effort you put, the more real prospects you have.
First, lets see what types of financial aid you can receive. Continue reading
Sometimes, finding quiet and comfortable places to study your homework may become a challenge. If you are not lucky to have a quiet roommate, one day you might need a place to change your study routine.
- Check out the undergraduate library. Find out if there is a possibility for renting a study room or carrel. You can also get to a floor that remains unvisited. Look through the tables and choose one behind a wall or in a quiet corner. Surely, you will find little places that will help you concentrate on your tasks.
- Search the quiet places in the graduate libraries. Choose one of the specialized libraries: law, business or medical to change the scenery. Continue reading
Prospects of Family Development in Modern Conditions
Industrialization, the complexity of production processes, urbanization led to increased mobility of the population, the growth of personal freedom, the emancipation that complicates the ways of socialization, etc.
In the modern world, there are several types of families. Modern Family has a tendency to minimization. The nuclear family – is a family in which adults live with their parents or adopted children. Extended families – family type in which a married couple and children live together or nearby, continuing contact with each other. In these families, sometimes two or three generations live in the same place or nearby.
Uncertainty about the present and the future, an increase of crime rate, alcoholism, drug addiction, spiritual and moral degradation of huge masses of people, propaganda of cruelty and violence, the disintegration of the social and cultural environment lead to the disintegration of families, increasing divorce. Among the major causes of divorce, sociologists distinguish the change of historical family types. Continue reading
Firstly, I want to help people. When you are in a hospital, there is never enough emotional warmth, partaking, tender words. Nurse spend much more time with patients than the doctor, and she may create comfortable atmosphere for the patient.

Not all children have a happy childhood. Orphans live in orphanages or worse – on the street. Children whose parents are alcoholics, drug addicts, and despots. The families that are below the poverty line and forced to send their children to work as soon as possible, as they can not ensure the elementary needs for kids: food, clothing, entertainment. And children who have been abused – their carelessness is very difficult to return. There are millions of children in difficult circumstances on the Earth today, they had to say goodbye to childhood too early.

If you haven’t already read the previous part, preferably to read it.
Do not explain the obvious
You are not writing a textbook for elementary school. If you refer to the well-known technologies, methodologies, algorithms, methods, etc., simply point out how you have used them. Do not explain their essence, if it is not needed. Continue reading
This article is addressed primarily to students (undergraduates and even postgraduate students). It affects the perennial problem of presenting own thoughts in text form. Begin your writing with the following tips.
Pick the topic
Sounds absurd? Not at all. Properly selected and formulated topic determines the entire subsequent process of writing. Topic is very concise reflection of the subject area, as it defines the terminology, definitions and discussions, links to external information sources, the number and complexity of the “extra material” (formulas, tables, illustrations). Topic (it matters most!) determines the whole style of the text. For example, it is difficult to write a thesis in scientific style on “Content Management System” topic. But it is quite another thing when the topic sounds like “The software content management and structure of the Internet resource.” Continue reading
