We all know the key to passing exams is studying effectively instead of longer. Let me show you 9 simple and scientific study tips for your perfect grades.
Schedule small short study sessions
Don’t cram for tests. Break down your task into small parts. It’s easier and more effective to study in 10 thirty-minute sessions than it is in one five-hour session.
Set a specific goal for each study period
In order to improve study efficiency, we should set a specific goal before sitting down to study. Learn how to make a schedule.
Don’t passively reread notes or highlight textbooks
Some students often reread notes or highlight textbooks without thought. That will only waste your time on less important information. Study smarter, not just harder.
Use Flashcards to memorize material
Use flashcards to memorize material, especially that which is difficult. You can bring them with you, and take them out to review once you have time.
Explain what you learned simply
This is a really good test to see whether you truly understand what you learned. If you can explain it to your classmates simply, you do know it well.
Take mock tests
Do practice tests before the real exam to check our knowledge. By timing yourself you will feel more confident and perform better.
Choose a comfortable study space
Create a conducive environment, and put everything you need close by. It is also important to stay away from distractions.
Keep focus while studying. Some studies show that certain types of classical music can improve concentration. Some students say that it`s much better not to listen to any music.
Put away your smart phone
Stay away from your smart phone when you are studying for an important exam. Don’t let text or social media interrupt you. It’s ok for your friends to live without you for half an hour. 😀
