This training is designed for BSc-students. Purpose of the training is aimed at teaching students how they can process information as effectively and efficiently as possible to be able to pass exams successfully. In the training subjects such as mind-set, motivation, concentration, memory, power of repetition and learning strategies will be discussed. Specific attention is also paid to exam preparation. In addition, the training offers insights and handles to make choices and set priorities in time-management. As a 'red thread' throughout the training the question is: what works best for me to process, remember and 'play' with learning material together with proper goal setting and time-management.

Learning outcomes:

- deal with study material more efficiently and effectively;
