I used to teach a course called “Essential Study Skills” to 5th graders. By now, I’m sure you’ve developed some of your own. A well-researched fact for memorization is to read out loud, as opposed to yourself. When learning vocabulary, use index cards (1 Card per word/phrase) with vocabulary on the front and definition on the back. This system is clean and tidy, plus when you have someone quizzing you, it’s clearer in your mind. Again, say the vocabulary out loud, as well as the definition. If you’re not able to focus in complete silence, try classical music on low. The beats keep you going and sometimes coincide with your heartbeat. Never study when sleepy or hungry; it’s a fail. Are you a night owl or an early bird? Choose those extra hours for a healthy snack and extra time for review or work.
