Since school is quickly approaching (or for some of you has already begun), it's time to kiss summer goodbye and jump back into school mode. Studying is crucial for earning the desired grade in a class/test, so to help those who take a while to get adjusted during a new school year, here are a few study tips to help get the ball rolling!
1. Take notes
This is probably the most important tip anyone can give you and it's not hard! I don't care if the class is easy, write EVERYTHING down.
2. Color code those notes
Don't write in just plain black ink, add a little color in there! It not only helps you remember the material, but it makes note taking a little more fun :)
3. Reward yourself
Studying for 4 hours straight is going to do nothing except make you tired. Try studying for 30 minutes and then take a 15 minute break. During that break you have time to retain the information you just learned and dive into something new with a refreshed mind!
4. Find a place where you know you will get work done
Whether that be in a library or in the middle of a crowded room, find somewhere where you know you will be productive!
5. Stay Organized
Keep your desk/drawers clean, don't have a bunch of wrappers sitting in your backpack, throw away pens/pencils that you don't use, etc. Just get rid of unnecessary junk and studying will become 100x easier.
7. Bookmark everything
Bookmarking a book you're reading for fun or a textbook can help you feel more prepared. It also keeps you from frantically trying to find the page everyone else is on.
8. Never doubt yourself
Doubting yourself only makes things worse. If you think you can't do something than it's never going to happen. Believe in yourself and your abilities and the outcome will be worth it!
