Kim’s Answer

Everyone has different learning styles. Some can learn just by listening to someone speak about the topic but others have to take tons of notes. I found taking notes during class helped me focused on what the teach was explaining or my mind wandered. I would make flash cards for key words to or topic to remember and reviewed them before every class. Now with goggle documents class mates and you can take notes, highlight key things and make notes to explain things all in real time plus link to key website. There are tons tools out there. If you study bit every day on subjects than when time for test you will be ready. Good luck. Best advice when in doubt ask for help.

Carl’s Answer

Great question Jannette. As Kim stated, we all have different learning styles so maybe you can take something from all of the responses provided. I saw visualize the topic and relate it to your environment. If something is new, it is almost impossible to remember every detail so always start from highest level and try to relate it to your environment. Applying concepts versus memorizing theory is always helpful when learning new material.

Susan’s Answer

Study Tips:
-Have a place that is comfortable with few distractions.
-Make sure you block time in your calendar and commit to study and not let anything (or one) take you away from this special time.
-Make an inspiration board with a few photos to inspire you to stay on task (your favorite animal or a future picture of you working in your chosen career) When you feel like not studying, look at your inspiration board.
-Have an accountability partner. Someone you can talk to when not inspired to study and who will check-in with you each week to see how you are doing.
-Reward yourself when you have completed your study. Use points for each hour or task and when you have compiled enough points treat yourself to something you would not normally have time for (a movie, date night or a special treat)

Thank you comment icon Hi, Susan! These are such great ideas! I'm going to have to try the "inspiration board" myself! I just had a few additional questions for you: 1.) How did you discover your own best study methods when you were a student? 2.) Do you know what research has shown some of the best studying methods to be? 3.) What should I do if I'm struggling to find time/good ways to study? Thanks so much! Alexandra, Admin
Thank you comment icon My best study habits came from trial and error. Research supports a variety of techniques and you can find research to support just about anything. Ultimately its about how your brain processes information and giving your brain the environment that it needs. Personally for me the environment and technique changes based on the content and application. Struggles are part of the process. You have to know there will be many distractions and learn to say "no"! When I went back to school for my MA I knew that it would mean 2 years of denying myself activities, dates and occasional family events. I kept my goal in mind and reminded myself it was for only 2 years. That helped me to stay on track. You can do this! Susan Castillo
