Study Tips

Connect the Lesson with Other Things

This is called Elaborative Learning. When you make connections between new information and old information that is already stored in your memory, it makes it easier to recognize the new information.

Come Up With a Regular Study Schedule

Our brains and bodies work well when they have a schedule. Similar to how going to bed at a different time each night will leave you feeling unrested, studying on a spastic schedule will make it hard for you to remember all that information.

Organize the Information

Organize it into groups or categories. Grouping information is called Chunking and make recall much simpler.

Practice the Information

Use flashcards, mnemonic devices, songs, anything you can think of. Speak the information out loud. Not only will you be running through it in your mind, but you will be hearing it aloud which will help you store it in your memory.
