This chapter discusses literatures and studies, both local and foreign, that had been reviewed by the researchers to provide a good basis for the veracity of the researchers’ study.

According to Gilberto M. Llanto, several variables must be considered when the finance management to their studies, strategies, and methods to use in a course, unit, or lesson. These variables include: the student outcomes and experiences desired; the learning sequence (deductive or inductive) that is appropriate, the degree of student choice and responsibility; the kind of interaction pattern that is suitable; the Common Essential Learning to be developed; the amount of adjustment needed for students through the Adaptive Dimension. Available empirical research investigating the relationship that study time has with college student performance has seen mixed results. Positive, negative, and no relationship between the two variables has been reported. At a time when there is overwhelming evidence that students are devoting less time to their studies it is critical for educators who desire to encourage and motivate their students to engage in productive study behavior to first understand the true nature of this relationship. The authors investigated the influence of a third variable, study habits. Based on a sample of finance students, results showed some study habits had a positive direct relationship on student performance but others had a negative direct relationship. Results also showed the study habit moderated the relationship between study time and student performance positively, but another study habit moderated the relationship negatively. Discussion of the findings, implications, and directions for further research are also provided.
