Study Tips and Techniques
Studying and learning are just two of the most important factors in
attaining success in school and ultimately in establishing your future
career. To be successful, follow some simple habits and rules that will
help you stay afloat in the learning and studying process in school.
How to Study
Many students don’t succeed in scholastics not because they lack
the necessary intelligence, but rather because they haven’t mastered
the techniques necessary to become successful in school.
These techniques can be in the form of study management, which helps
impose routine to the learning <> studying process, and increasing
retention. Some pupils are used to a specific learning style, and when
they transfer to a new school, they may find it hard to keep up. This
difficulty only means that studying and learning is a continuous process,
requiring continual adaptation. Below are a few tips on how to take
control of your studies and become successful in school.
1. First things first. Work on the most important
and hardest subjects, and then cover those that do not require as much
of your time and attention. If you’re having a hard time with
physics, allot more time to it, and then deal with those that take less
time and effort.
2. Eat right. Eating the right foods, rich in protein, may
help increase the retention rate during study sessions. Why? Protein
is the main component of the human brain; consuming food rich with that
nutrient promotes the brain’s memory. In turn, memory depends
to a large extent on the quality of food consumed.
3. Study with paces. Studying should be done on a strictly
followed schedule. If you’ve allotted one hour to a particular
subject, stick to it for that time period. If you finish earlier, great.
If not, proceed anyway to your next scheduled study subject; you don’t
want to burn out.
4. Take a breather. Scheduled break should be taken during
your study sessions. Research shows that taking a five-to-10-minute
break 30 minutes’ study is most effective if one is engage in
5. Daylight study. Studying during the daytime is more efficient
than studying in the evening; it is during the daylight hours that the
mind is present and most receptive to incoming information.
6. Ask. There’s no harm in asking. If something isn’t
clear to you, ask your instructor or a classmate, or a fellow student
whom you think has a better grasp of the subject matter.
Join a study group and discuss concepts that are unclear, and learn
from them. Keep a regular record of that being discussed and immediately
raise a question if you think that the explanation given is not sufficient
for your understanding.
7. Bach Flower Remedy for increased concentration. The use
of Bach flower remedies in increasing students’ retention and
maintaining a sound memory is been one of the benefits of this plant-based
therapy. Bach remedies are beneficial for those who suffer test anxiety
