STUDY STRATEGIES

Write Study Notes

Write separate study notes that combine key areas of the textbook with your class notes. The process of rereading and rewriting your notes allows you to think about the material and get a deeper understanding of the information.

Say it Out Loud

Talking out loud and putting the information in your own words helps you understand the material versus memorizing it 

Flashcards

Flashcards are a two-sided study tool that has questions, terms or concepts on one side and the answer on the other side. 

 

Start with the Challenging Topics

Don’t study the information you already know. It may be tempting because it gives you confidence, but you should start with the most challenging topics and just review the material you are comfortable with. 

Study Groups

Study groups are a great way to get the academic support you may need.

Look for group members who are conscientious, active in class by attending, participating and taking notes, and who are interested in doing well.

Why you should join a study group:

  • The group meets at set times. So, you will need to be prepared before attending a study session by having all homework, review questions and study notes completed. You are not able to procrastinate when the group is relying on you.

  • If you are missing notes from class, one of the group members may be able to provide you with the missing information.

  • Learn complicated or confusing material faster than if you tried to learn it on your own. The benefit of studying with different people is that someone else may understand the confusing topics and be able to explain it to you easier than you struggling to teach it to yourself.

  • Everybody studies differently; you may pick up new strategies that may help you study more effectively and efficiently.
