Why can't I write my essay the night before it is due?
You can, but it will not be a true reflection of your writing abilities and thought process. Writing under tight deadlines with little room for proofreading and correction allows the mind to miss careless mistakes. As soon as an assignment is given, begin writing in small chunks and finish at least three days before the due date to allow your work (and mind) to "rest." Then, revisit the work and proofread to find mistakes and improve the quality of writing.

What is studying?
Studying happens in different ways for different people. Some people prefer to study in complete quiet, while others can only focus with music playing. However, studying is not cramming the night, or even two nights, before an exam. Studying is the continuation of what was learned previously during a class period. The more the material is reviewed, in small chunks, the better retention for life, not for small periods of time.
Subject: Library and Information Science
What is research?
Research is the attempt to find information and/or facts about an unknown topic that cannot be recalled automatically. Research is not restricted to academia. Technically, research is conducted everyday. Want to know what time your favorite restaurant opens/closes? The location of a new doctor's office? Or what time the next football game airs on TV? It's all research, just in different forms.
