Are you amongst those spending sleepless nights covering the course? Ended up acing that exam, did you?
Well, I have a proposition to make.
I have three tips that will not only make you ace the exam (yes, yes, I know you have already done that, read on), but you will not need to spend hours and hours cramming it all up.
I swear I am not pulling your leg.
Let’s not beat about the bush and get this show on the road!
How should I study? Yup, you read right.
“How” is a very important question to answer.
Well, some people who did not really need to study in undergraduate school.
I had so many classmates who did not. They are quick learners and understanding and retaining information comes to them naturally.
But for me, I always needed to write things down to memorize them.
So, the first thing to do is realize what type of learner you are, and what your current study habits are prior to studying. Once that’s done, you can proceed to the three tips below.
1. Be Organized
I cannot stress enough how important this is. Look below to find out what I mean by being organized.
Being organized comprises of all these things. So, even if you have a pop quiz the next day, you won’t have to spend half the day looking for notes.
2. Study Smarter, Not Harder
Ever heard your elders say:
“Study hard and you will do well?”
That is one piece of advice I am tired of hearing.
What I will advise you is to study smart not just hard.
What does studying smart mean? It sounds the same as studying hard, right?
Studying smart can encompass the following strategies: The Study Cycle and Focused Study Sessions.
3. Take It a Step Further:
Focused Study Sessions - your brain needs occasional breaks to process the information you are feeding it. It also needs focus and minimal distractions. So try to stay focused for 25 minutes with a 5-minute break or 45 minutes with a 15-minute break for study sessions.
What do you do in that time?
So, what are you waiting for?
