  2. The most common barrier to success encountered by students is a lack of effective techniques for study and exam preparation. If you are one of the vast majority of students whose answer to the question.

  3. Study in the position you will be in when you take the test. Sitting at a table or desk in a chair. 

  4. . 2. Avoid distractions. Loud music, television, other people are not going to help. You need to focus on the task at hand, not have a bunch of distractions to pull you away. 

  5. 3. Take regular breaks when you are studying. Your mind is supported by your body. If you allow your body to get too tired, or out of condition, it won't support the brain the way it should! 

  6. 4. Go over your notes from class. Study old exams.

  7. The most effective way to assimilate • text is to: • 1.) Read the text. • 2.) Make notes from the text. • 3.) Write a description of the subject material from • your notes. 

  8. By reading the text through first, you familiarize yourself with the material, gaining an idea of what the important points are. After reading through the text, you reinforce your learning by making notes from the text IN YOUR OWN WORDS. The process of converting the text to your own words is essential to committing the information to memory. By writing a description of the subject material from your notes, you further reinforce the information in your memory. Reviewing these descriptions prior to testing will refresh your memory of the material.

  9. You can also draw a picture, label it and draw it again and again until you can do it quickly. In the same vein, you can create a mental picture representation of what you want to learn. Picture the representation repeatedly until it is easy to remember.

  10. It is best to think of the way you'll have to show your work. If you have to speak it, as in memorizing a poem, then practice speaking it. If you have to write something, like the bones in the hand, draw them and label them. If you have to write an essay on a topic, write several drafts and then when you're ready you'll be prepared to answer with ease. It helps much less if you have to give a speech and you practice writing it but don't practice speaking it. If that happens it's likely you'll have to read your speech and, that's boring. You'll miss chances to make points and change the tenor of your voice

  11. If studying a chapter in a book, read the chapter, • then, go back and make notes from the chapter, • then, write descriptions of the material from your • notes. If studying classroom notes, rewrite the notes as • soon as possible after class. Then, write descriptions of • the material based on your memories and your notes. • The process of converting material into your own • words is the best for learning new material, but you • must insure that you are being accurate in your • descriptions. Trying to make notes when you read • material the first time is likely to interfere with your • absorption of the material.  • Remember, most colleges require 2 hours of study time • for every hour of class time!  • The best thing is to read each and every line of your • lesson carefully and with full attention. And then see the • magic. 

  12. :Use the SQ3R Study Method: Survey - glance ahead and scan the material so that you will have an idea of what you are supposed to be learning - some textbooks will have a list of objectives that tell you exactly what to concentrate on!  Question - after you read each section, ask yourself questions to make certain that you understand what you have read - if the section has a title, make that into a question (for example, your question for this section could be "What is the SQ3R study method?). 

  13. Read - as you read the sections, make certain that you understand the terms and information - use the glossary or dictionary if you need to. You can also write notes and copy any information that you think you might have trouble remembering.  Recite - yes, really! - reciting the information out loud helps to make sure you really understand the material, and helps move the information from your short-term memory into your long-term memory. 

  14. Review - go over the material again when you • are finished, to check your understanding and be • sure you can remember everything.  • This method of studying might seem to take longer • to get through each section, but you will see that it • results in much better understanding. You will • remember what you have studied for longer, and • will do better in class than if you just read over it • once.

  15. 10 Great Study Habits:

  16. Write Down Every Assignment The most logical place to write down your assignments is in a planner, but you might prefer to keep a to-do list in a simple notebook or in your cell phone note pad. It doesn't really matter what tool you use, but it is absolutely essential to your success to write down every single assignment, due date, test date, and task. • Remember to Bring Your Homework to School • It sounds simple enough, but many F's come from students • forgetting to bring a perfectly good paper to school with • them. Does your homework have a home? Is there a special • place where you always put your paperwork each night? To • avoid forgetting your homework, you must establish a • strong homework routine with a special homework station • where you work each night. Then you must get in the habit • of putting your homework where it belongs right after you • finish it, whether this is in a special folder on your desk or in • your backpack.

  17. Communicate With Your Teacher Every successful relationship is built upon clear communication. A student-teacher relationship is no different. Miscommunication is another one of those factors that can cause bad grades, despite good efforts on your part. At the end of the day, make sure you understand every assignment that's expected of you. Imagine getting a bad grade on a 5-page paper because you didn't understand the difference between an expository essay and a personal essay.

  18. Organize With Color Devise your own color-coding system to keep your assignments and your thoughts organized. You may select a single color for each class (like science or history) and use that color for your folder, your highlighters, your sticky notes, and your pens. You'll be surprised to discover how much strong organization skills can change your life! Establish a Study Zone at Home Take the time to assess your individual style and your real needs and plan for the perfect study place. After all, if you can’t concentrate, you certainly can’t expect to learn very well. Students are different. Some need a completely quiet room free from interruptions when they study, but others actually study better listening to quiet music in the background or taking several breaks.

  19. . Prepare Yourself for Test Days You know that it's important to study for test days, right? But there are other things you should consider in addition to the actual material that the test will cover. What if you show up for test day and the room is freezing cold? For many students, this would cause enough of a distraction to interrupt concentration. That leads to bad choices and bad answers. Plan ahead for heat or cold by layering your clothing. Know Your Dominant Learning Style Many students will struggle in a subject without understanding why. Sometimes this is because students don't understand how to study in a way that matches their brain style.

  20. Take Fabulous Notes There are a few tricks to taking fabulous notes that really help when it comes to studying. If you’re visual person, you should make as many doodles on your paper as you can. Useful doodles, that is. As soon as you realize that once topic relates to another, comes before another, is the opposite of another, or has any kind of connection to another—draw a picture that makes sense to you. Sometimes the information will not sink in until and unless you see it in an image. . Conquer Procrastination When you put things off a lot, you end up putting things off until it's too late from time to time. It's that simple. When you procrastinate, you take the chance that nothing will go wrong at the last minute--but in the real world, things do go wrong.

Are you feeling tired, achy, or bored when it comes to homework time? You can change your grades by practicing a few healthy homework habits. Change the way you feel by taking better care of your mind andyour body.

  22. Effective Study skills are about more than understanding Effective study skills must be practiced in order for you to improve. It is not enough to simply "think about" studying; you have to actually do it, and in the process use information from what you do to get better. This is the central idea of this page. All that follows depends on this single concept. There is a saying that goes like this: "Practice doesn't make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect." If you want to be an achiever, take this saying to heart.

  23. The value of a schedule • A schedule saves time • Making every hour count • When to study • Studying for lecture courses • Studying for recitation courses • Making and revising a schedule

  24. The Process of Study How to use your time Time is the most valuable resource a student has. It is also one of the most wasted of resources. The schedule you develop should guide you in how to allocate the available time in the most productive manner. Sticking to your schedule can be tough. Where to study You can study anywhere. Obviously, some places are better than others. Libraries, study lounges or private rooms are best. Above all, the place you choose to study should not be distracting. Distractions can build up, and the first thing you know, you're out of time and out of luck. Make choosing a good physical environment a part of your study habits.
