Study Tips For Higher Grades

Retrieval is not unattainable.

Retrieval includes recalling information and recognizing what you have already learned in life situations. It is very easy to take things you have just learned and remember them because you can help yourself and put them in your long term memory.

Repetition, Repetition, Repetition!

Forgetting is so easy to do, and we slowly forget things that we were once taught everyday. This is the process of decay in our minds. We can stop or slow that process by repeating and constantly practicing the things we already know. One of the best ways to remember something for a test or easy application later is to repeat that information in many different formats. This will make recognition and recalling information easier. Some suggestions for materials for repetition would be study guides, note cards, and practice tests.
