I have compiled a list of study tips that will make your studying experience sweeter.
1. Study with a group:
This works for certain people because they may study with a group of friends, but do not study anything at all at the study session. I would suggest studying with classmates that you may not consider a friend, but an acquaintance.
2. Play some music:
Some music is good to listen to while studying. The perfect music to listen to is something that you normally don’t listen to (not annoying though). For example if you are normally listening to rap music, then I would suggest music that is softer (i.e.: Johnny Goth). Music is also an option for break time.
3. Take breaks bi-hourly/ every half hour:
Breaks insure that your brain won’t explode by all of the knowledge that you are intaking. Also in most cases, the student will forget all of your study material if they don’t take a break.
4. Think about your goals (short and long term):
Goals can be things like wanting to read a certain amount of pages per day or wanting to understand something by a certain day. Planners can assist with this.
5. Make target spots to reward yourself:
This is similar to the photos I see on Pinterest about placing gummy bears on certain points in a book. You can do this or have something else for yourself.
What do you think of my tips? What are some tips that you personally use?
