Another article, W.Korn hauser (1999) “How to study” is very similar to O’keeney’s article in their ways. I will discuss both one major similarity and difference between the two articles.

In the first article, Brian O’Keeney organizes his article by listing his suggestions of how students can get good grades in their studies. In addition, He lists his advices with telling examples of every idea that he mentioned. Then, He lists three points of how can students organize their time to study well. On the other hand, The second article, W.Korn Hauser does not organize his information by telling examples for each of every advice. Also, He didn’t only talks about colleges students but he also talks about high school students with telling the effect of his Advices. Moreover, He mentions four points of how can we do a True study. As a result both of O’Keeney and W.Korn organize their article in their differently ways.

Brian O’Keeney mentions that students must add schedule for their studies. His point reminds me when I was in the second grade in high school. I remember that I got a very less marks in the first term and my teachers advised me to do my best to get a high marks. So the first things I did it is adding a daily schedule of my studies. Then, At the final exams I did it very well with getting seventy-eight percent. As result, It seems that O’Keeney is correct in his opinion that adding a schedule for studying is the one most things for getting a good grades.
