I’m BRAD SMith

I’m something of a studying wiz.

While I attended college, I quickly realized that for the first time in my life, I was my own master. I had no parents structuring my life for me, I had no schedule I needed to adhere to, and I had no rules. Like my peers, I reveled in this newfound freedom, but also quickly realized that with that lack of responsibility, I was setting myself up for massive failure -- if I didn’t get control of balancing my education, my social life, and my health.

But I had a dilemma.  I wanted to enjoy my college experience to its fullest, without completely abandoning my grades, or being locked into a study schedule that gave me no time for my personal interests.

That’s when I developed my own methodology for studying and balancing my college life.  Ultimately, this allowed me to do the things I loved, like playing baseball and socializing (heck, it even allowed me to meet my future wife!), and still succeed wildly in college.  I learned how to study effectively enough to graduate with a 4.0 GPA, enjoy a healthy and active lifestyle, and prepare for massive professional success!

A Professor's Take on Stress to Success"

Our current generation of traditionally aged college students are stressed out. So when it comes to studying, even when they take the time, they're too preoccupied with life to focus on the task at hand. Enter "From College Stress to Success." Smith has deftly weaved together strategies to studying that eliminate (or at least greatly reduce) that stress. From dispelling myths to functional study habit models to practical, meaningful example that students at any age can apply. For what it's worth, I'm a professor of communication and special assistant to the Provost at Youngstown State University.
