Study Habits
    #361974 - 02/10/10 10:51 PM (6 years, 9 months ago)

Mine are shit and i'm trying to improve them as school isn't getting any easier. So i'm asking all you scholars out there for some tips. Just little things that help motivate you or just help you get shit done in a more efficient manner. I know step one is to get off of here but i'm in the middle of studying for a test tomorrow and I need some help.

So help a brother out if you can :highfive:

don't put shit off until the last minute is my main tip. if you don't do it, who will? I used to procrastinate on homework because I never wanted to do it but then I realized I hate it no matter when I do it, so why not just do it quick and get it out of the way? cramming at the last second makes you hate it 10x more IME.

Yeah, that's definitely a habit I've been trying to break for years. I was hoping you'd pop in this thread. You're pretty intelligent and seem studious. Any other advice aside from doing shit on time?

Where's everybody else at? I know Harry can't be the only person on here that studies.

the thing that always helped most for studying for tests was flash cards. I remember shit way better if I write it down, so making the cards was 50% of the battle, and then just flip through them 2-3 times and I usually had everything down well enough to get A's on the test. the key is not skimping on the cards though, the more you make (and don't make big ones, just one fact per card, but detailed specific facts are key) the more you'll know for the test. Don't just make cards for what you think the professor will ask, make cards for everything. better to make a card you don't need than to wish you had made a card when the professor asks a question you don't know.


Also, for homework just take pride in what you do :shrug: don't rush through it because a high quality project makes me feel awesome inside, way better than a bunch of C's even though I get exhausted and hella stressed while I'm working on it. the payoff of a gorgeous paper or research summary is orgasmic

Thanks for the tips. School really got to me today. I had two tests that I wasn't as prepared for as I thought and I have another one tomorrow. I was really trying to start this semester off right so I wasn't playing catch up like every other semester. Such is life I guess :shrug: Back to the books for now.

my main tip would just try to stay organized, a planner is good. Dont just write in the due dates aswell, write in the times you are planning to work on stuff too.

just keep a pen/marker handy and it's almost hard NOT to jot down stuff.  keeping certain folders for whatever subjects helps too.  when i was younger i ALWAYS had a folder or notebook to jot shit down.  (i wish i still had them, it'd make for interesting reading material now), but point being: flex your miiiiind man, and document everything! :chong:

hmmm, i believe i am drunk now...

I just got done looking at about 5 powerpoint presentations myself. The notes hardly go along with the book so it's a bit difficult to cross reference anything. Also I had to study for two psych tests where each professor was basically teaching the exact opposite of the other. Keeping that separate is going to be a bitch all semester I'm sure.

yeah, so you know your diploma will be worth all that money.  i fucking hate teachers like that.  the classroom environment should be full of discussion, with all classmates participating.  that way you get a wide range of perspectives but it forces interest.  which isn't a wonderful thing, but its better than nothing.  anyway, i never had a hard time studying shit i didn't care for.  I did have a hard time reading entire books of bullshit literature.  but w/e.  Think of it as a time to not only focus on what you are studying but focus, consciously, on how you are studying.  work on your level of focus/concentration.  do not let your mind wander to other interests.  just focus hard for 30 minutes or so, or long enough to where you can take a 5 minute break, then do so.  Also, if you are working on a particularly difficult problem you cant solve then go outside and play frisbee and think about chronic and fucking for a while then refocus when you sit back down to tackle the problem.  That's something that's really helped me throughout my career and in college i got two b's, the rest were A's.  i study and test well.  :grin:

We have huge discussions in that class, and also its a community college so I dont really care about the classes. When I get to a UNI I will.

Yeah but I would say that community colleges have more of the "rotten asshole" types. My english teacher doesnt even spell some words right. I have been tempted to send her an e-mail with a bunch of corrections if she ever grades my spelling.
