How to study Smart in less time

By  | 

We all hate studying it’s the most disliked parts of going to school; it is crucial to dominate your school work and get a good grade,

There has been a method of study smart and spend  less on studying; we are giving you some tips and tricks you can use in all your courses

For example, if you’re preparing for exams in math, history, physics, and chemistry, it’s better to study a bit of each subject every day. This approach will help you to learn faster than by focusing on just math on Monday, history on Tuesday, physics on Wednesday, chemistry on Thursday, and so on.

It’s more efficient to study multiple subjects each day than to deep-dive into one or two subjects (Rohrer, D. 2012).[2]

 

Change the way you concentrate

First, you need to create a study environment that encourages concentration. That means set up somewhere away from people or things that will compete for your attention. That also means turn your phone off I said off, not vibrate.

The rest is up to you. You’re the only one who can decide what works best for you. Some people concentrate better on school, others after supper. Some people need to take a study break every hour, others every 3 hours. It’s simple: do what’s worked before. If you aced an exam after you studied on the basement couch, review there again.

 

Change the way you procrastinate

There are as many reasons to delay as there are ways to do it. Maybe you’re uninterested in the topic. Perhaps you’re intimidated by the workload.

You’re not the only one who does it. Don’t be too hard on yourself. If you look at procrastination as a significant personality flaw, it’s easier to succumb to it. But, if you think of it as a bad habit that you sometimes do, it’s easier to get to work.

 

Change the way you read

Of course, you know how to read, but try incorporating three different styles of reading. This means you don’t waste time pouring through text that you only need the gist of.

First, there’s study-reading. This is when you’re dealing with complicated things that you need to absorb and understand.

Next, there’s skimming. You probably already do this when you’re in a hurry. You’re reading at high-speed so that you can get the main ideas in the text.

And last, there’s scanning, when you quickly read to find the keywords or points you’re looking for. Use this method when you know exactly what you’re looking for, and can disregard the rest.

 

Change the way you set goals

Setting lofty goals like “I’ll read this whole book tonight” may seem like a good idea, but you don’t want to set yourself up for failure. It’s easier to set a few smaller, attainable, goals so you can feel better about what you’re doing. Time moves by faster when you feel like you’re getting things done.

Also stay flexible when setting goals. Sometimes things happen, and you won’t be able to get everything done that you hoped.

 

Change the way you pick your study group

Study groups can be either the worst or best thing to happen to your productivity. You can either tap into a group’s insights or pick up more bad habits.

You want to study with people who will motivate you and lift you up. A functional group can bring out the best in you by stimulating you to make sure you do your share of the work.
