I know studying can be hard and half of the time, you have no idea where to start. I’ve been there and now, I’m here to help with these 7 study tips.

  1. Every time you learn new information in class, make flash cards. This way when it’s time for the final or an exam, all you have to do is study them.
  2. Go over your notes at least once a week. You’ll be surprised how much information you’ll remember.
  3. Annotate articles.Write all over them. Ask questions and write summaries after each section you read.   It helps to keep your brain engaged.
  4. Make quizzes over the material in your class. Study the answers you get wrong (still study what you got right, though).
  5. Have somebody else quiz you.
  6. Relate what you learn in class to something in your life to help you remember. Seriously though, this is how I got an A in Spanish class. I remembered the verb ganar, which means to win, because it sounds like game ,and you want toimgres win your game.
  7. Take as many notes in class as you can. When you get home, re-write your notes neater and add graphics. This is so much easier than trying to decipher your own handwriting, and rewriting something helps to retain information

If you use these study tips, I promise that you will feel so much more confident going into a test or final.

Disclaimer: I’m not promising you’ll get an ‘A,’ kids, but I do promise your grades will improve.
