Simple Study for Upcoming Exams

Listening to music while studying is a matter of personal preference, but if you decide to, it is preferable to listen to ambient music or music with no lyrics. You don’t want music that will cause you to lose focus, or want to dance or sing along. You should be absorbing the words on the page, not the lyrics.

It can be helpful to take your notes in different colors. When asked about certain subjects on your exam, you might find yourself remembering what the colors looked like on the page and therefore what the notes themselves explained.

If the material you are studying is reading-heavy, it can be helpful to pause every few paragraphs to paraphrase what you’ve learned in your own words. This is a helpful way to reiterate what the book tells you, and it creates a useful guide you can use later to review.

Schedule your study days strategically. Give yourself at least two full days with each subject: one to review everything you’ve learned, and the other to solidify everything. On the first date, do research to make sure you fully understand every topic. On the second date, you should feel confident about everything and have all your questions answered.

Try to avoid the internet for social networking purposes as much as possible while prepping for exams. While the web can offer a wealth of information with which to study, it is one of biggest distractions out there. You’ll find that your productivity increases tenfold when you don’t even have the option of going online to put “status updates” or chatting.

Don’t overdo it. Give yourself a break. Many students find that the information sinks in better after studying for five to ten hours, then socializing or relaxing for several hours. If you’re studying during a Saturday and Sunday, allow yourself to do something fun on Saturday night; don’t trap yourself in your room with your books.
