How To Improve You Study Habits
Perhaps you are an average student with average intelligence. You do well enough in school, but you well never be a top student. This is not necessarily the case, however .You can receive better gardes if you want
to. Yes, even students of average intelligence can be top students without
additional work. Here`s how:
1. Plan you time carefully. Make a list of you weekly tasks. Then make
a schedule or chart of your time. Fill in committed time such as eating,
sleeping, meetings, classes, etc. Then decide on good, regular times for
studying. Be sure to set aside enough time to complete your normal reading
and work assignments. Of course, studying shouldn`t occupy all of the free
time on the schedule. It`s important to set aside time for relaxation, hobbies, and entertainment as well. This weekly schedule may not solve all of your problems, but it will make you more aware of how you spend your time. Furthermore, it will enable you to plan your activities so that you have adequate time for both work and play.
2. Find a good place to study. Choose one place for your study area.
It may be may be a desk or chair at home or in the school library, but it should to have distractions. When you begin to work, you should be able to concentrate on the subject.
3. Skim before you read. This means looking over a passage quickly
before you begin to read it more carefully. As you preview the material, you get some idea of the content and how it is organized. Later when you begin to read you will recognize less important material and you may skip some of these portions. Skimming helps double your reading speed and improves your comprehension as well.
4. Make good use of your time in class. Listening to what the teacher
says in class means less work later. Sit where you can see and hear well. Take notes to help you remember what the teacher says.
5. Study regularly. Go over your notes as well as you can after class.
Review important points mentioned in class as well as points you remain confused about. Read about these points in you textbook. If you know what the teacher will discuss the next day, skim and read that material too. This will help you understand the next class. If you review your notes and textbook regularly, the material will become more meaningful and you will remember it longer. Regular review leads to improved performance on tests.
6. Develop a good attitude about tests. The purpose of a test is to show
what you have learned about a subject. The world won`t end if you don`t pass test, so don`t worry excessively about a single test. Tests provide grades, but they also let you know what you need to spend more time studying, and they help make your new knowledge permanent.
