3 Simple Tips to Study Effectively
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 3 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 around 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, there are some people who don’t really need to study.
I know so many people who don’t. 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 to know how you will be studying.
Once that’s done, you are good to go.
1. Be Organized.
I cannot stress on 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-up quiz the next day, you won’t have to spend half the day looking for notes.
2. Study Smarter, Not Harder.
Ever heard your professors say:
“Study hard and you will do well?”
That is one piece of advice that you may be tired of hearing.
What I will advise you is to study smart not hard.
What does studying smart mean? It sounds the same as studying hard, right?
Studying smart encompasses the following things:
Now the last tip is very unique.
Take a pre-test.
I know, I know, don’t like what you are hearing?
Well, taking a pre-test will not only let you know what type of question can come in the paper, but it will also tell you what is important, where do you stand in terms of the exam, how to tackle different questions and so much more.
Better yet, go through the previous question papers and see what has been asked before.
So, what are you waiting for?
