16 Simple Studying Hacks To Help You Ace Your Next Exam

beben-eleben:

Use a mnemonic device.

image

Easily remember sequences and key concepts – like PEMDAS – by revamping them into a story you can relate to.

YouTube it.

image

Channels like CrashCourse take big topics and break them down into short, easy-to-understand episodes. (And there’s an episode for just about every subject under the sun.)

Download free apps to study on the go.

image

Apps like Flashcards+ and Study Blue let you make and organize your own mobile flashcards and review sheets. Too much work? You can also browse through sets that others have already made.

Caffeinate (in breaks!)…

image

Caffeine helps kick the brain into gear, but you’re better off opting for frequent, small coffee breaks, rather than downing that venti before you hit the books.

… and pop some gum in between.

image

Studies suggest that chewing gum can boost concentration and focus. (Plus, all that chewing should keep you awake, right?)

Give your notes a makeover.

image

Amp up your notes with colors and visuals, and you’ll be more likely to recall the details when it’s game time.
Give your notes a makeover. You also learn more effectively when you write things out by hand – so ditch the laptop for a bit.

Block distractions. Literally.

image

Can’t focus? SelfControl is a free app that will eliminate your access to distracting websites for a pre-set amount of time.

Tackle small sections at a time…

image

Need to memorize a huge chunk of information? Don’t try and do it all at once. Instead, learn a new chunk every day – and don’t start the next portion until you’ve got the last one down.

…but don’t procrastinate!

image

Make a schedule – and stick to it. If you’re especially prone to putting things off, use the Pomodoro technique to structure your time.

Get loud.

image

Read your notes aloud to yourself, or pair up with a friend and read sections to each other. Actually speaking and hearing the words – instead of just silently reading them on paper – will reinforce the material in a whole new way.

Admit it… you’ve done this

Milk is just immature cheese.

Why aren’t iPhone chargers called ‘Apple juice’?

image

Once you have your Ph.D., every meeting becomes a doctor’s appointment.

image

If you say “olive juice” it looks like you’re saying “I love you” so don’t say it unless you mean it.

image

When I was a kid the phrase “you can’t have your cake and eat it too” never made sense to me… because if I’m eating cake, then it’s probably mine. Who eats someone else’s cake?!
