I agree before one learns the ropes of studying, it could be challenging to find what fits among the good studying techniques. Everyone has a different way how they study depending on their understanding however there are general habits you can adapt to ensure an effective way to study.

Assemble all the necessary materials you I need to study, by having everything at your disposal you will save time that you can spend to go back and forth to recover some things you might have forgotten. Try avoiding distractions that could interfere with your studying, to ensure this, avoid carrying devices like phones and other distracting devices.

  • Make short notes

Taking notes is a very effective way to study; by making short notes you are able to note down main points you ought to remember while studying. This makes it easy as you study in the future; using your own personalized thoughts and understanding you are able to write comprehensive context in just a small summary.

  • Create mind maps

Mind mapping is a way of connecting a network of ideas; finding how ideas relate to one another will improve your understanding of things and also save you a lot of study time. There are various sites you can find that assist individuals to create mind maps which are very convenient when it comes to reading for exams.

  • Take quick quizzes

After a significant amount of reading subject yourself to a quick test in relation to what you read.

Questions also create an overview of some questions that may be addressed in the exam and this will guide you and allow you to learn what to study.

  • Engage in study discussions

Once you have read and understood the content you allocated yourself take a break to reward yourself. A treat is a good way to motivate yourself and this will enable you to grasp what you have read.

I have also adopted most of the tips given above; I believe working together with your friends and other students will ease the workload of studying. Together you can brainstorm and capture relevant ideas; you can also practice using quizzes and past exam papers. Forming a small group of at least four people will facilitate a smooth discussion.
Another good study tip is to ensure you work in a conducive environment. Studying demands focus and concentration therefore ensure you are in a calm quiet environment. It is also important that you stay away from discussions that will come in between your studies. Creating flash cards will enhance your studying; this is because they sharpen your memory of context reading. Memory games are also a good way to study, using common words you can recall significant information you read. Using mnemonic devices you can create phrases that are easy to memorize and remember.
