Study Better And Not Harder

Subject Priority

When you study, you need to learn how to prioritize your subjects. What you would normally do is choose to do first those materials that are easy and leave the difficult ones at the end. The problem with this is that when you will already work on the difficult subjects, your energy level is already low since you have already used it up on other subjects. What you should instead do is to work on the difficult subjects first so you will have better concentration on completing them.

Using Visual Aids

Another effective strategy of studying is to use visual aids. In making your reviewer, you can make use of diagrams and charts that will help facilitate details on your paper. When reading your note, make use of colored pens to highlight the important terms you need to memorize.

Refresh Your Mind

Make it a habit to perform some sort of refresher activities that will promote retention of details in your mind. Each time you study, you can allot about ten minutes to review and read your previous lesson. Frequently studying your lessons will also help reduce the amount of time needed in studying for a major examination.

Many students choose to study bulk lessons only before an examination. This will only cause the brain to be overloaded with information, which can often produce unwanted results. Bombarding your brain with so many details at once is not good. The brain will only tend to forget them. With refresher reviews, you allow your brain to absorb what it has learned within a reasonable amount of time.

Use Metaphors

Metaphors or symbols are greatly useful when studying. What you need to do is to associate your lesson with something simpler and one that you can really appreciate. Sometimes, a student skips studying because he finds the lessons boring. With metaphors, he can think of something else he likes that can be associated with the lessons. For example, a computer enthusiast needs to take up a psychology class. Instead of studying the brain as it is, the student can associate parts of the brain as sections of a computer.

Private High School Application Essays

Usually, the essay questions directed to parents are analytical in nature. Instead of asking for facts, these questions ask you to speak about your teens character, to discuss family dynamics and to gauge your role as a supporter of the private school. Private high school admittance directors recognize that teenagers who are brought up in a stable, education focused home, are much more likely to succeed than their peers who have less support at home.

Similarly, private school administrators look at your essay answers to determine whether you can be counted on to support the high school financially or through volunteer work. As you might imagine, administrators cannot legally or ethically ask some of these questions but they can draw inferences based on your answers to application questions.

Analytical Questions

For example, an entrance application question may ask what you believe your child can contribute to the XYZ school. This type of question is really asking you to speak to your child’s academic, social, athletic and out-of-school interests. If you have visited the school, reference your visit to show that you have made an effort to learn more about the school. Your answer should address each of your child’s areas of interest and strength. Here is a sample answer to this question:

During our recent visit to the XYZ School, Tommy pointed out to me the well equipped science lab and asked a number of questions about the science curriculum available to students at the school. Tommy has a long standing interest in studying science and he has performed well in elementary school and we believe that he will bring that interest and aptitude to his high school studies. His current teachers note that Tommy regularly asks thoughtful and insightful questions in class. In addition to working hard to perform well academically, Tommy will be an willing participant in the school’s baseball team and/or its marching band. Tommy keeps a busy schedule during the school year and as a well rounded and serious young man, he will represent the ideals and message of the XYZ School now and in the future.

Family Stability and Religious Questions

Other questions will more directly ask you about your future participation in school fund raising and other activities. These questions are designed to evaluate the stability of your home life and your future financial support potential. For example a religious school application might ask about the role your religion plays in your life. A non-religious school might ask why you are considering the XYZ School. Here is a sample answer to this type of question:

Our family is an active member of XYZ church. We are active members of the social action committee and every Thanksgiving, our entire family, including Tommy and his two sisters, volunteer at the XYZ Church gently used clothing center where we help distribute gently used clothes to homeless people. Tommy and his sisters have been greatly impacted by this activity as well as other church related functions. With a hands-on opportunity to minister to the less fortunate, Tommy has a personal understanding of the message of XYZ religion. We try to reinforce that message at home by attending services regularly and making daily prayer a part of our routine. At the XYZ Private Elementary School, both my husband and I have served on the Board of Directors and we are active participants in the school’s Feed the Hungry annual campaign.

Answers like the ones set out above are designed to send a message to school administrators that both you and your teen are serious, dedicated and stable people who will fit in well with the community that develops within a particular private school. If you make an effort to study the type of community that exists within a particular school and you model your entrance questionnaire essay to that community, you greatly enhance your child’s chances at gaining admission.

Info of Lab Tech Job

Laboratory technicians are trained to work with and handle infectious material and specimens. While not without risks, when proper safety protocol of infection control and sterilization is followed these risks are greatly reduced. Protective clothing such as, goggles, masks, and gloves are used regularly for the protection of technicians. Laboratory techs usually work in shifts and need to be in relatively good health as they can be standing for long lengths of time.

Laboratory techs receive either a certificate from a teaching hospital, a technical or vocational school, or an associate degree from a community college. Also, different branches of the Armed Forces can train people to become technicians.

Many lab techs work for hospitals. But there are many places a tech can apply. Some of these are: federal labs, public health labs, biomedical companies, universities and colleges, pharmaceutical companies, and the Armed Forces.

The demand for qualified laboratory technicians is on the rise. Over the next few years, employment opportunities for medical techs are expected to increase ten to twenty percent. In a slow economy, this expected growth is very promising. As technology becomes more and more advanced it contributes to the growth in the medical laboratory fields as it opens new ways to discover better medicine and cures for people and disease.

Study for Distance Learner

The first thing to do is setting up your study schedule. This should include dividing your time between “attending” school, doing homework, research, and assignments, and studying for tests. Most people try to schedule 2 hours of study time for every hour they spend online in class and in discussion groups. This isn’t a hard and fast rule but it is a good starting point until you get a grip on what works best for you.

You will need to pick a time when work or family activities will be least likely to interrupt you. One way to approach this is deciding if you’re a morning or evening person. If you’re a morning person it makes sense to get the majority of your studying done in the quiet of the morning before everyone else gets up. Again, do what works best for you but it is imperative that you avoid distractions as much as possible.

Avoid choosing a time when the family is busy and active throughout the house. Just before dinner is probably the best time to be studying. Constant interruptions can affect your ability to concentrate and get any worthwhile studying done. It is also important to emphasize to all your family members that you are not to be interrupted while studying, unless of course if there is some sort of family emergency.

Now that you have a designated time or times during the day or night to study you need a place to study in; a spare bedroom, a room in the basement, some people even carve out a space in the garage. It just needs to be a place where you can go that is conducive to studying. It should have a desk with room for your computer, a comfortable chair, and a bookshelf for storing books and other study necessities.

Once you have your time and place set up how you study is up to you. Everyone approaches it a little differently because we all seem to learn a little differently. But the main thing to remember is that when you are studying, your are studying. Surfing the net, posting on Facebook, or any other distractions are to be avoided. You will invest a serious amount of time and money in your distance learning degree; it only makes sense that you will get out of it what you put into it.
