How are your study habits? When I was a freshman at university and needed to be studying, I definitely found myself goofing off and not focusing on what I should have been doing. Fortunately, by my junior year I had figured out the keys to developing disciplined study habits. This Huffington Post article sums it up nice and easy. Hint: It doesn’t involve cramming for that mid-term.
I do want to add a study tip that didn’t make the Huff Post list:
Re-writing Your Notes
Writing down my notes a second and a third time really helped me to ace my exams. The reason being, when I would take notes in class, I would write the words on the slide mindlessly. Copying them again, at a slower pace, really allowed me to grasp the content. Hopefully, these tips will help you ace your midterms and exams as well as retain the information you spent all semester learning. All the best!
