How To Study--Efficiently!
Blai, Boris, Jr.
Many suggestions can be made, which, if put into practice, can help students learn more and earn better grades. Some study habits that relate to study efficiency are: selecting ideal study time; adjusting surroundings; length of time for each study session; the way to go about reading; and the way students take notes. Probably the single most important technique is to study and review at regular and frequent intervals. As students continue their education, one of the most important activities that must occupy their time is silent reading. To take good notes, a student should be aware of and consciously practice some fundamental principles: focus attention on the lecturer; make notes brief; learn to be exact; and listen for learning. In preparing for exams, students should not"cram," but should: practice the kind of thinking they will be doing during the test; space their reviews; and review tests that have been returned to them. In taking exams, students should: be on time; read test instructions carefully; budget their time; and do the easier questions first. In the final analysis, study results depend on how well, not how long, students study. (RS)
