It's that time of year again....
5 Helpful Study Tips
1. Listen to Mozart – Certain types of music that have a pattern of 60 BPM (such as Mozart’s compositions) are known to activate both the right and left sides of the brain, which is known to increase likelihood of remembering important information.
2. Get out of bed! – Your brain associates being in bed with sleep, which means you’re more likely to fall asleep than actually study. Instead, study at a desk, a library, the floor, or even next to your bed…just not in it!
3. Get extra help from your teachers – Visit your teachers during office hours or extra help hours that they offer. Remember that your teachers are the ones who write the exams and they will lead you in the right direction in terms of what to study. Plus it’s important that your teachers see that you WANT to do well.
4. Studying for tests with essays – If your exam has an essay try to give an umbrella theme to all the material you’ve studied during the year or think about what were occurring topics during your studies. Normally, teachers will give an essay topic that will check to see whether you understood the point of the course.
5. Formulas – For any math and science formulas that you need to memorize, the best way to remember them is to do a bunch of practice problems using them instead of just attempting to memorize them. Writing them down a bunch of times will also help.
