Time management - There are amazing tools on the web to help you plan. Cue cards, post it notes. Choose a system that suits you.
Image and word association - This study method associates words with images. Some people memorize best when they can visualize a word or idea in their head. Students who use this method associate an unknown term or concept with something they already know. For example, if a term in your textbook sounds like an object you already know, picture that object in your head every time you say or read that word. Relating an unfamiliar term to a familiar image can help you to remember it more easily.
Repetition – Repetition is the most common study method students like to use. Reading, remembering and going over it again, until you’ve learned the subject.
Use the Internet – Think about the tool in which you are reading this blog. Create shortcuts at the top of your page for a subject you are revising. Like a reference book.
Story Telling – Story telling is a helpful way to absorb information using words and images to create an image in your mind. Tell yourself a story about an important person you need to learn about for a test. For example, instead of looking at your textbook as full of boring facts, turn that information into an exciting story with details that can help you remember. Tell the story to yourself out loud, and to others if you find it helps. Many professors even choose to teach using storytelling.
