How to Study, Part 2

Read How to Study, Part 1 here.

Okay, you are ready to sit down and actually study.  So how do you do it?

1. Flashcards are a great way to memorize information fast. You don’t need fancy card stock to make them.  Simply cut regular paper into squares, write the information you need to memorize and start learning. A great online flashcard tool, that even has a free phone app, is Quizlet.  Quizlet allows you to study other student’s quizzes or you can make your own. Don’t like Quizlet?  Click here to check it out.  There are many other apps and websites that do the same thing.  Comment below if you use something different.

2.  Trying to memorize information quickly?  Write it down, over and over again.  Sometimes writing items down many times helps your brain remember the information better and faster.

3.  Use acronyms to help remember large sets of information.  For example, PEMDAS helps us remember order of operations in math.

4.  Explain the information you are trying to learn to a friend, parent, even your dog.  When you say information out loud it makes your brain make connections to the information.

Do you have a way to study that works for you?  Share in the comment section.
