Students Tips

Useful study tips shared by students for students. If you have some good study tips, please share!!!

“When taking notes, make sure to pay attention to the teacher when he is speaking. Write down what the teacher says if he says it more than once. Make sure that you understand what the subject is about and if not then ask questions. But the practice to getting good grades is R-E-V-I-E-W, that’s right review. Review over text books and notes on a daily basis.”

Do your homework whether you have to turn it in or not. At first I figured that if I didn’t have to turn it in I wouldn’t do the homework. I got a 46% on my first exam. For the second test, I did all the homework and did several chapter reviews and practice tests. I got a 94% on that exam.

I recommend to deal with anything that is bothering your mind first. Like you are studying but you keep thinking of something else. Deal with the problem to clear your mind then study!

Try to study in the morning because at that time, your mind is fresh and you can do more study than you can during night time. I works for me.

If the instructor draws something on the board or has something drawn on the overhead (let’s say the human heart), draw it in your notes. Label it the way the instructor has labeled. You may want to put this is the middle of the page, so that you can write around it as the instructor speaks about it. Even if it is in the textbook, you reinforce it in your brain by drawing it yourself.

Meditate on what you learnt or rather think about deeply to understand it. If you get a deeper understanding of the topic, you won’t lose it.

Study whatever is boring early in the day because if you study at night after a hard day, forget it, you’re going to go to sleep!

The more you read, the faster you’ll read. You need to find something you like to read and then read more often.

I think the most important thing is not just going to class and reading the book, but whenever you have a question, it’s absolutely necessary to speak to the professor. He’s the one that knows the topic and he’s the best one to answer the question.

Get help right away. Don’t wait until you’re doing badly in a class and have to catch up.


10 Kamila August 24, 2011 at 10:41 pm

Study a little every day and make it fun. Do it with friends and order a pizza.


11 Belia August 24, 2011 at 10:41 pm

After about an hour of studying I take a 10-minute break. You need to take a little break and relax, then go back to the books.

The best way to prepare for an exam is group study, because two heads are better than one. Start studying at least three days before the exam. Also, don’t just memorize; that lasts only a few days and gives you limited knowledge. You really have to sit down and understand the concept, formula, or theory.


13 Sandra August 24, 2011 at 10:42 pm

Don’t put off writing your papers. I learned this the hard way. Problems can arise at the last minute. For instance, your computer might break down.


14 Marko August 24, 2011 at 10:42 pm

After you’ve finished researching a paper, make an outline and confer with your professor. Next, write the rough draft, give the draft to your professor, correct the rough draft, and finally write the final copy.

Resisting friends is important. You have to learn to say no. I hate to miss things. I want to be there having fun, but I remind myself I have to keep my priorities straight. School has to come first. There will be other times to see my friends.


16 Teayonia August 24, 2011 at 10:43 pm

To keep myself motivated, when I finish studying I reward myself with food and different activities. I also think about what happened to my friends who didn’t keep focused on their grades.


17 Richard August 24, 2011 at 10:43 pm

I always sit in the front of classroom. I attend all class meetings. I ask questions to professor about anything that I don’t understand, either from textbook reading or from lecture. I read and study half chapter per day twice or even 3 times to completely remember what I read. Procrastination is my biggest enemy.

To have a thorough knowledge of a particular concept, its better to refer different books to master that particular concept. Mere learning of a subject would be of no use, deep research has to be put in to master it. It is always better to start from basics of any complicated subject.

I usually prepare for test on one or two days early, but I get less and less good grade now because in school days off, I play computer games and waste my time…


20 Isabella D'Souza August 24, 2011 at 10:44 pm

Note-taking: Use a pencil and a notebook to write down. Talk to your friends a little bit.


21 Ayesha Khairi August 24, 2011 at 10:45 pm

In my opinion, a student should study away from his mobile, television and computer because those distract students which lead to less interest in studying.


22 Stephen August 24, 2011 at 10:45 pm

My two most useful study strategies:

– I read the textbook *before* class. This allows me to pay better attention during lectures.
– I review my notes *within 24 hours*. This allows me to better memorize the information avoiding long study hours when preparing for tests later.

Hope you find these helpful too.


23 Faixan Sher August 24, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Study should be carried out on daily basis regularly. If you study regularly it will not become a burden during the exams. We should study for the exams much before it starts; like two or three weeks before. And study in a small room and no one should be disturbing you. I usually get 75% in my exams but by applying this method I got 91%.


24 Milkah Njoki August 24, 2011 at 10:45 pm

Do all the assignments, all the tests, and use past papers to revise.


25 Sarah August 24, 2011 at 10:46 pm

Always have a peaceful mind and positive thinking first then ask what your body and mind needs for learning process… I usually read books alone and no one can see me at all.


26 Cori August 24, 2011 at 10:46 pm

This sounds odd, but study with your shoes on when at home. Wear socks and tennis shoes. It’ll make your mind think it’s work time instead of leisure time. When I get home from school, I keep my shoes on instead of relaxing to power through homework and study for tests. Then you may relax.


27 Elron February 6, 2012 at 4:13 pm

In my opinion, you shouldn’t need to study when exam is near… Whenever taking class try to understand by skimming it through and find the concept (the main idea) or trying to create image relating to the idea you’re looking for. Then when exam is close, gather with some friends and ask questions one another… No need for card or other stuffs, just look for concept. That’s how i do it!

It is always important to study and making it a habit is golden…

Make routine for everything for example:

Get up early in the morning at 5 am then brust your teeth and washed up for 20 minutes.
Have your personal devotion for 10 minutes.
Have your breakfast 10 to 20 minutes.
After breakfast Keep studing from 6 to 8 or 8:30, dress up and and go school.
Don’t go to school without proper school dress.
In the class, concentrate and listen carefully and make notes.

After school rest for sometime, do your homework, go play and enjoy with your friend for 1 hour.

After that take bath and be ready to study again till your dinner time.

Sleep early at 9 pm so that you can get up early easily. I am sure this can help you so much in your student life.
