Study Tips

Post  RomiX on Thu Jan 20, 2011 11:16 am

If it's a topic for study tips, then I'm posting right things. Advices that will help you to study. study affraid

Let's start.

History:

Make schemes about what have you learned, things like "The Industrial revolution ----> (an arrow) Population grows.... And with maximum data possible, like the dates, names, locations.... and so on.

Try to read stories from the times you're studying, newspaper articles. It's boring, but it helps.

Ask for another books. It might happen that your history book is really boring, so look for the books of the courses that've left the school already. Those might be different and more interesting and better ones.

UNIVERSAL: Do all your homework. And to get the basic idea of what are you currently into, copy everything that's writen on the desk and is related to the topic. Exclamation

Good ideas. Very good ideas.
Here's another important aspect of studying: environment. Study in a place with minimal distractions and where it's easy to stay awake. For example, take a cue from casinos and don't crank up the heat. Cooler temperatures make it easy to stay awake. Choose a place where you will feel at ease, but not too relaxed.

Another one that helped me to no end at Word of Life, particularly with my class on writing and giving sermons (it's also good for oral reports): get a tape recorder and record a reading of your notes to listen to. It's repeatable for easy memorization, and helps you spot trouble areas in your dictation.

Universal: Dont try to force learning. Take regular short brakes, 2 minnutes now and then to get something to drink or similar. Moderation is the cue.
Universal, but perhaps best applied to History: Mind charts. Draw a bubble on a big sheet of paper, name it after whatever you are learning about. Make other small bubbles around it, connected. Fill these bubbles with the facts that you know about the word in the central bubble. This gives a better perspective on things, and when used with other people, they can grow to rather large collections of easy read but valuable information.

Excellent.

I think from now on, to make it easier for those trying to find ideas, we should have tips be in bold text and feedback be in regular. Anyone else like that idea?

WhiteWolf: I know a lot bout ancient civilisations, maybe I can help you

As it was said before, the ambient is very important. If you are writing, try to make sure that your lamp (or light emmiter, like the Sun) is on the opposite side of the hand you're writing with. You should be comfortable, and start with something interesting, to get involved, and then go to more and more difficult stuff. The air should be freash, so your brain will get more oxigen and less headache. study Neutral

In the exams, start doing the tasks you're good at. First- you won't wase your time, and second - while doing those, you might undesrtand those you don't.

Study people! Good luck!

See how the parts offering specific advice are in bold text, like this, while the ones where you're just talking to people are in normal text like this?
