Norma’s Answer

Austin,

There are numerous ways to study here are some that have helped me:

  1. take good notes - key items emphasized by your professor
  2. read to understand and process; read slowly
  3. manage your time - plan out the what and the when (holidays, days off, etc.) - set up a schedule
  4. choose a place to study - library, quite place, study hall, etc.
  5. find something that works, for example note cards or a word association
  6. quiz yourself
  7. rest - be sure to always get plenty of rest/sleep

Hope this helps.

Thank you comment icon Hi Norma: Your response is very insightful - similar to how I studied while in college. Thank you for sharing. Sheila Jordan

Viviane’s Answer

Hi Norma, this is a good question and you will probably need to find what works for you. I'm sure you will find many suggestions, the ones from Norma are great ones! I read a very interesting article the other day that suggested that you study as if you were preparing to teach others, and if you do, you will be well prepared. It made me go back to times that I did that, and not only i was well prepared but also had some fun! We had in my house a blackboard and I would study using the board, and it was a way more fun than using a regular notebook.

I've read also that writing makes you memorize a way more than just reading. So writting summaries of what youy are studying, making notes always worked for me.

Lastly I would suggest that you find a time that you are rested so you don't waist your time studying and later have to do it again cause you were not fully engaged. Take frequent breaks, very important to refresh and continue so you don't get overwhelmed! Good luck and don't be too hard on yourself!

Viviane recommends the following next steps:

Try different methods and see what works for you!
