I found reading the articles and books forums on this site to be helpful. Also, the PA meeting materials are a good read - they helped me frame the problem in a way that I hand't before.

Welcome to PA!
What works good for me is called "microbursting."
Basically, microbursting is breaking things down into tiny little steps. Step 1, get books from the car. Step 2, open up to the right chapter. Step 3, get out pencil and paper. Step 4, sit down in front of book and start reading. Step 5, answer assigned homework questions. etc.
I think there is a post somewhere on this site that explains it better. I'll look around for it, but perhaps someone else could post it if they know where to find it?
I hope to see you on the check-in boards!
Does anyone know where to find the post on Microbursitng? I can't seem to find it....

Tricks and tips
I only joined a few days ago so I don't have much to offer but I have been using the book-ending (check-in check-out) today and its going well enough (am not exactly efficient but doing something is a lot better than doing nothing)
Anyhow, so that might be a good place for you to start.
Thanks for your advice,
Thanks for your advice, Deej. But what is book-ending?
