Now that most of you were in the throes of getting ready to go back to school, I thought I would do this post with things I found useful in terms of how to study over the years.
Copy and rebind your notes
When studying for tests or exams it can be overwhelming to look through an entire course worth of notes what I like to do is help myself Focus only on what needs to be studied.
An easy way to accomplish this is take all the notes that are required to be studied for the test photocopy them and remind them into a little booklet allowing you to keep your class notes intact but having a study booklet from which to work and study from this helps you focus on only the relevant information and you’re not overwhelmed like you would be looking at your entire semester worth of notes. By binding the notes it allows you focus on the pertinent information and not be distracted by the fluff I love the cinch binding machine (affiliate)
Use highlighting effectively
From there I would like to highlight the relevant information to make it easy important details. A great way to do this is there highlighting but I always struggle to use traditional highlighters because you couldn’t change what was highlighted later(affiliate) sure you could use traditional highlighting pens but I like the thought of highlighter tape 0) better is it is removable and you can write over the tape surface.
I like the thought of having all my information in one place a good way to do this would be to take the highlighted sections and turn it into a mind map. This then creates a One Stop Shop for studying.
Use index cards to make homemade flash cards
Learning specific terms can be done with flashcards put a question that’s in your study notes on the front with the answer on the back this is especially useful when the test is multiple choice or a technical base subject like science or mathematics
Hang on to any of the resources you use from the above because they may come in handy for the final exam and with the highlighter tape it will all get confusing if the information slightly changes
