R2G’s Monday Roundup 5th November – 11th November

It seems when I started the Monday roundup (only last week) that I thought it wouldn’t be that hard to find content, it isn’t it’s hard to choose which articles/stories should be included into seven of the best. I’ve tracked a few good posts down and know they’re all worth a good read.

Here goes……..

7 of the Best

  1. Study Hacks – The Art of Stealth Studying: How To Earn a 4.0 With Only 1.0 Hours of Work
  2. In this post, Cal shows us how many students study only one hour, but gain 4 hours worth of studying. Impressive stuff, and I really like the part about taking 10 minute detours to think about study and go over past lectures. I used to do this in a way, when walking to the library (which was about 10 minutes walk across campus) thinking about the lecture that I’d just attended – great advice.

  3. Life hack – 10 Reasons you aren’t achieving Success
  4. A really great post from lifehack.org on the areas you need to look at when you’re measuring your success. Not planning and not realising when you are veering off your goals is identified. This is a read for many and all so true.

  5. What brand is your mattress?
  6. Truly funny post about the impact of brands, branding and buyer perception. If you’re interested in marketing, branding and promotion, then you’ll want to check out this post

  7. 8 Steps to a Six Figure Career
  8. If you’re in your final year of College/University and wondering how your career will progress then this post is highly thought out and very important to read. A graduate of more than a couple of years – brip blap summarises how they have progressed through their corporate career – a great read to give you some inspiration.

  9. University rankings don’t measure up
  10. At last, someone is posting abut how strange and unreliable the ranking system is for Universities and that potential students should be wary of how they measure Colleges and Universities against one another.

  11. £1,000 gap between men and women’s pay after graduation
  12. Something that is clear in all stages of your life, the battle between the sexes! Although I don’t really agree with the outcomes of the research – as there are so many variables contained and the analysis is unreliable – the article is an interesting read and does identify some things to consider when you leave higher education, like spates of unemployment for various reasons.

  13. Galileo was right: universities do revolve around their stars
  14. Interesting to see that as we progress through the world of branding and self-promotion that universities are sucomming to the pressure of bringing in the best researchers to attract students to their campus.

That’s it for the week that was on the student/academic blogosphere. If you have any links that you would like me to look at, then please add a comment below.
