INTRODUCTION
Background of the Study  
The
issue of poor academic performance among Business Education student in Colleges
of education has been of much concern to all and sundry. The problem is so much
that it has led to the widely acclaimed fallen standard of Education in Nigeria
at large. Aremu (2001) stress that learning outcome has become a subject matter
of important to stakeholders. (Educational psychologist, teacher, academic,
school administrator and managers, policy makers and planners, counselors,
psychometrician parents etc.)in Education and to a large extent to students who
are the direct beneficiaries or victims of the outcome.
Study
habits of the business educational students is a serious problem in education
because educational agencies have not made it possible to expose students to
study skills most lecturers, parent and guardians do not make effort to ensure
that students develop good study habits. The common resultant effort is that most
of the students run into problems. It is however work knowing that many
students feel bad about examination failure, it is a matter of concern to them.
They are usually interested in knowing how to study better because lack of
proper study habits leads to low scores which may in turn cripple one’s career
development success in academic courses could depend on efficient study habit.
Study
habits are learning tendencies that enable students to work privately. Azikiwe
(1998) describes the study habit as “the adopted way and manner a student plans
his private readings after classroom learning so as to attain mastery of the
subject”. According to her, “good study habit are good assets to learners
because they (habits) assist students to attain mastery in areas of
specialization and consequent to learning excellent performance, while opposite
constitute constraints to learning and achievement leading to failure”.
Good
(1998) defined the term study habits as the student way of study whether
systematic, efficient or inefficient etc.”.
Going
by this definition, it literally means that good study habit produce positive
academic performance while inefficient study habit leads to academic failure.
Some
students differ in their study habits some study for a long period while other
will only have ability to read for a short period.
There
are students by role memory, also there are students who rely on listening to
the lecturers intrusion again, there are students who can only read during the
day while some read only in the right or early in the morning or at anytime.
Bruner
(2002) suggested that good study habits increase the learner’s ability to learn
related materials, it fosters an interest in the activity itself rather than in
the ward which follow from the learning. Good study habit develop ability to
approach problem in a way that will more likely lead to a solution. It makes
material that is learned easier to retrieve.
Again,
Harman (2003) state that good study habit extends experience and stimulates
good method of thinking. It helps to develop standard or appreciation and taste
in the selection of materials. It develops the necessary good habits for self
development and success in academic work.
