6 Study Habits to Add to Your New Years Resolution

Ring in the New Year with Success in Career Training

The new year is quickly approaching, and that means it is time to start thinking about your New Years Resolutions. If you are trying to become a more effective student, you should implement new study habits in the new year.

It is hard to always find the right amount of time to study, but you will see better results if you learn to develop and apply effective study habits. Here is a list of study habits that you should add to your New Years Resolution.

1. Spend time studying each day. Trying to cram all of the information the night before a test is stressful and usually does not produce positive results. Try to follow a schedule and review your notes each day to help keep your mind fresh on the topic.

2. Study at the same time each day. Creating a daily routine will make you more consistent, and it helps your studying become a part of your life. You will be more prepared to study each day if you know when each study session will be happening.

3. Come to class prepared, and take good notes. Always try to show up for class, because you do not want to get behind on your assignments and notes. Also, find a method of note taking that fits you and your ways of studying. Prepare for the career training by reading the chapter beforehand and studying the notes you have already taken.

4. Start with your most difficult subject first. You put the most mental energy and effort into the subject that is hardest for you, and you should start this subject first. Once you finish the hardest subject, it will be easier to complete your other subjects.

5. Do not procrastinate. Instead of setting assignments aside for a later date, try to work on them right away to give you the proper time to research, revise, and complete your project. Procrastination will lead to rushing, and rushing your work will cause many errors.

6. Release yourself from any possible distractions. Try to avoid anything that will keep you from studying including the TV, radio, and anything else that distracts you. Distractions cause you to lose your train of thought and make it harder to focus on the subject.

If you can learn to implement these study habits into your daily routine, you will start to see better success in your career training. If you are looking at enrolling in vocational training, contact us today! Milwaukee Career College offers career training for those looking to earn a high-quality education in the Dental, Medical, and Veterinary fields. We would love to help you acquire the skills to start a career!

Everything You Need to Know About Becoming a Veterinary Assistant

What do Vet Assistants do?

As a vet assistant, you will be required to complete a variety of tasks. These tasks may include bathing, grooming and feeding animals, cleaning cages or operating rooms, administering medication or emergency first aid, looking after animals after surgery, and many others. Oftentimes, animal hospitals are open 24/7, so you may be required to work night shifts as well as holidays and weekends. Be prepared to have a flexible schedule!

What does Veterinary Assistant Training include? How long is it?

Veterinary Assistant Training Programs with Milwaukee Career College take up to a year to complete, which is significantly shorter than the majority of other college degrees and certificates. Veterinary Assistant Training will teach students about safety, the use of surgical equipment, sterilization, anesthesia, and even pet restraint techniques.

What is the different between a Vet Assistant and a Vet Tech?

The most notable difference between the two professions is Veterinary Technician Training Programs generally take longer to complete, nearly 2 years. However, vet techs also have more responsibilities than vet assistants. For examples, vet technicians have the ability to take x-rays, collect blood and urine samples, perform lab tests, record patient information, and assist veterinarians where they are needed.

Where do Veterinary Assistants work?

In your veterinary career, you have the opportunity to choose from a variety of work locations. Most graduates choose to work in veterinary clinics or hospitals. However, you may also have the ability to work for a college, university or research facility.

While I was a student at MCC I had an amazing time. All the teachers took the time to get to know their students, even Dr. Cybela. I was able to learn hands on in the career, and Mcc helped me find a Job in the field I studied. This is a great school, and I am glad I was a student.

"My time at MCC was amazing! The faculty and staff genuinely care about each and every student. I couldn’t thank Mrs. Hoover, Mrs. Jordan, and Mrs. Buckley enough for teaching us the knowledge and skills we need to succeed in the medical field. Hard work and dedication landed me an externship I could only dream of with Froedtert Hospital. I am beyond blessed to have had the opportunity to accept an offer and start my career as a medical assistant with Froedtert Hospital. Dream. Achieve. Succeed."
