Stay organized with these studying tips:
1. Plan your planning
Prepare being prepared by setting a time biweekly or monthly to gather what assignments, major projects, or exams are coming up.
2. Study by Breaking Down the Concept.
If you understand the concept as a whole you are more likely to successfully answer questions about it. Use the tree method to study.
Main Concept 1
Vocabulary Associated with Main Concept 1 Run through questions or scenarios Where Main Idea Applies
Main Concept 2
Vocabulary Associated with Main Concept 2 Run through questions or scenarios Where Main Idea Applies
*Our favorite way to use this method is by making notecards after each chapter i.e.
Flash Card - Front: Main Concept 1 in the middle
At the very bottom, write down a question you, if you were a teacher, would ask about this concept
Flash Card - Back: Write down the answer to the question
Break down the Concept Main Idea
1: Explain using words you understand Main Idea
2: Explain using words you understand Vocabulary: Sprinkle this in as needed in your main ideas and if not add it to the very bottom
3. Avoid cram studying by studying a little each week.
After a chapter or two set some time aside to reread or study the chapter while it's fresh on your mind. Do this by re-taking quizzes, re-reading the chapter, making notecards.
As the chapters pass study the one before (making notecards for this is very useful because by the time each test rolls around all you will have to do is study the cards). For example:
Monday: Learn Chapter 1
Study Chapter 1 the following day to ensure it is fresh in your mind.
Wednesday: Learn Chapter 2
Briefly Study Chapter 1 and focus on Chapter 2 the following day.
Friday: Learn Chapter 3
Briefly study Chapter 1 and 2, then focus on Chapter 3 the following day.
Continue this schedule up until the exam so that you are familiar with each concept. By using this method, you can reserve the days leading up to the exam on learning the material that isn't sticking.
