Need help studying?

Here's some tips!

Avoid cramming!!

Studying your materials over set periods of time allows you to process the information adequately.

Pay extra attention to difficult information!

The serial position effect suggests that the order of information can play a role in recall. Recalling middle information can be very hard, but you can overcome this by spending extra time rehearsing this information!

Get some sleep!

Sleep is very important for memory and learning. Recent research has shown that taking a nap after you learn something new can actually help you learn faster and remember better.

Visualize concepts to improve memory and recall!

Pay attention to photographs, charts, and other graphics in the textbook! You can even create your own picture. Use different colored pens and highlighters in your notes.

Utilize mnemonic devies to remember information!

Mnemonic devices are techniques used to help in recall. It's simply a way to remember information. You can associate a term you need to remember with a common item you are familiar with.
