Study tips for 4th quarter!

Here are some tips to help you study and turn in work on time!

Do your work when you get it.

I get it. It’s not always easy to do your work in a timely manner especially if you’re prone to procrastinating. But if you do it when you get it, you can relax and do whatever you want without the looming feeling of that homework you’re supposed to be doing hanging over you!

Flash Cards or a Quizlet!

Flash cards are a great way to help memorize vocabulary words and you can bring them anywhere! But if you’re not a fan of flash cards the app Quizlet provides many great ways to memorize the information you need to. They provide a flash card function, a matching function, and even a way to learn your vocab words!

DON’T cram for a test.

Cramming may help in the short term but it won’t help you retain the information for a later time and test. Studying for your test in small increments leading up to the test day is much more beneficial for your grades.

Get a planner.

If writing down what you need to do will help you then get a planner! However, even though some people don’t necessarily need a planner to remember to do their work, it’s still a good idea to plan out your work and studying on a calendar to keep you on track.

Start small.

If you have a large project coming up, do small parts of it spaced out so you stay motivated and it doesn’t feel so looming and overwhelming.

Take notes in class.

This may seem obvious but taking notes can help you retain the information and you can also look back at them when you’re working on your homework.

Pay attention in class.

Chances are if you’re taking to your friend during lecture then you’re not paying any attention to what the teacher is saying which is detrimental to your learning and your grades.

Study groups!

If you have a friend in your classes, ask them to study with you! Often studying with others can be beneficial to retaining and learning information. Also, if there’s something you don’t understand they might understand it and vice versa. If not, you guys can figure it out together using your individual knowledge.

Write in blue pen.

A study has been done that not only writing notes down helps you retain the knowledge but also writing in blue helps more!
