Quick Notes for Effective Study Strategies

  • Set up regular times to study. Studying should become a habit, like going to the gym or getting up in the morning and brushing your teeth, part of your regular routine. Something you don’t even think about anymore.
  • Studying will also be more effective if you have more frequent shorter blocks of time rather than the ubiquitous "all-nighter".
  • Learn effective study strategies. Making charts, outline, highlight, color-code notes, rewrite notes, use index cards, etc.
  • And learn to read effectively.
    • Preview the material. Ask yourself what do you need to get out of the material.
    • Read the material but make it an active pursuit. Highlight, take notes, outline, answer questions that have been raised.
    • Review the material. Did you answer the questions you set up for yourself? Are you able to outline the material? A good exercise is to explain the material to someone else.
  • Do not sabotage yourself. Know yourself. If you are a night owl, then don’t set the alarm clock for 6 am. It just isn’t going to happen. If you are an early bird then don’t plan on staying up until 3 am. It just sets you up for failure.
