  • How to Study Effectively. Many people find studying to be a real drag, but if you're

  • going to do it, you may as well do it right. You will need Distraction-free environment

  • Something to study Pen and paper Lectures, podcasts, and videos and naps (optional).

  • Step 1. Choose an environment for studying where you will be free from distractions including

  • phone calls, television, or other interruptions. Step 2. Prioritize your study materials so

  • that the most important or the hardest is finished first. Step 3. Read your materials

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

  • Step 4. Read the material again, taking notes and summarizing the main ideas in your own

  • words. Make new material stick by relating it to something you already know or care about.

  • Context and emotion enhance our ability to remember. Step 5. 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. Step 6. Quiz yourself without

  • the aid of any notes. Write down your answers or speak them aloud. In other words, rehearse

  • for the test. Take a nap after a heavy study session to allow your brain time to rest.

  • Napping after studying can help with recall. Step 7. 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. Did you know In ancient Greece and

  • Rome, people used the "loci" memorization method, which involves visualizing placing

  • each thing you need to remember in a familiar room or on a familiar road, and picking it

  • up as you take a mental walk around the room or down the road.
