How to Study Effectively

Studying is something most people do especially for the young people. Some people find studying is a hard thing to do. Yup, it is. But I got this trick from howcast.com and I hope you'll like it! So these are the steps how to study effectively!

First of all, you will need:

1. Distraction-free environment
2. Something to study
3. Pen and paper
4. Lectures, podcast, and videos
5. Naps (optional)

STEPS

1. Choose the right environment

     Choose an environment for studying where you will be free from distractions including phone calls, television, or other interruptions.

2. Prioritize your study

     Prioritize your study materials so that the most important or the hardest is finished first.

3. Read for comprehension

     Read your materials over once for basic comprehension. Don't stress about remembering it all on the first read.

4. Read and take notes

    Read the material again, taking notes and summarizing the main ideas in your own words.

5. Use your senses

    Use your senses to assist with learning. When possible, don't just read, but listen to lectures or podcasts, and watch instructional videos. Build a rich understanding of the material.

6. Quiz yourself

     Quiz yourself without the aid of any notes. Write down your answers or speak them aloud. In other words, rehearse for the test.

7. Test yourself again

     Test yourself again and again, at different times of the day and week. This "self-testing" will reinforce your studies so that when the real test arrives, you'll be ready.
     

Here are some tips for you!

1. Make new material stick by relating it to something you already know or care about. Context and emotion enhance our ability to remember. 
2. Take a nap after a heavy study session to allow your brain time to rest. Napping after studying can help with recall.
