Throughout my reading of Lake and von Baeyer’s article, “Tips for Successful Students” I found many similar characteristics between the successful student and myself. In order to reach your full potential as a successful student you must possess portions of each of these characteristics. One can not only be goal-oriented without being active in participation. You must blend both in order to reach those goals. The article states, “Talking about something, with friends or classmates, is not only good for checking whether or not you know something, it’s a proven learning tool.” (Lake, A. & von Baeyer, C., 2005.) This is my strongest characteristic. I have found that I actively read and study all materials on a consistent basis, but until I sit with my fellow students to discuss that material, I don’t feel I have truly absorbed the information.

However, through these conversations of shared knowledge the subject is broken down and better understood by all involved in the conversation which benefits all members. Additionally, this reinforces retention of the subject. (Lake, A. & von Baeyer, C., 2005.) As my educational career progresses I will incorporate the “attitudes and behaviors” of “The “A” Student – An Outstanding Student” (Lake, A. & von Baeyer, C., 2005.) to successfully reach my goal of earning my Masters of Science in Nursing.
