Psychological Tips for Effective Studying
* Revise regularly- Revision should be continuous if you are to gain a deep understanding of the subject. It should not be superficial and rushed. Cramming might help you remember a few facts but it will not give you the overall understanding of a subject, which you should be studying for in your University Education.
* Be systematic- You should begin organizing a study schedule as soon as possible in the start of the semester
* Use varied techniques- besides making summaries of your lecture notes, use varying strategies for your revision. Draw up schemes showing the relationship between the concepts you have studied in your subjects or form study groups with your fellow students to discuss the different topics and the relationships between them to reinforce both understanding and recall.
* Use relationship to memorize- Understanding the relationships between pieces of information, such as their similarities and differences, and using their relationship to information already known is a definite advantage during stress of an examination.
* Practice previous exam papers- You should obtain copies of previous exam papers as early as possible in the revision process. Doing these exams in the required time limit will give you practice in applying what you have learnt to specific topics and practice in examination techniques. This will also give you a good idea of the format, time limit and the number of questions in the examination.
* Attend lectures- Pay attention in lectures and tutorials and so on for information relevant to exams. For example what topic might be expected in a test etc?
Stress the following areas in your revision:
? Points emphasized in class or in the text
? Areas the Professor has advised for study
? Questions in study guides, past questions and reviews at the end of textbook chapters.
* Decide what to study (choose a reasonable task) and how long or how many chapters, pages, problems, etc. Set and stick to deadline.
* Do difficult tasks first. For procrastination, start with an easy interesting aspect of the project.
* Have special places to study. Take into consideration, lighting, temperature, and availability of materials.
* Study 50 minutes and then take a 10 minutes break. Stretch, relax, have energy snack.
* If you get tired or bored, switch task/activity. Stop studying when you are no longer being productive.
* Do rough memory tasks and review, especially detail, just before you fall asleep.
* Study with a friend. Quiz each other compare notes and predicted test questions.
o Physical environment- Choose situations, which make you feel comfortable, for example a particular space in the library, in your own home or study room in halls of residence.
o Plan a time table- Use a time schedule to prioritise study times and try to stick to your schedule.
o Mental activity- Remember that your concentration span is limited. So do not sit for 3-4 hours at a time starting at one page of notes. Wait for an hour or so reading and making extra notes. Draft out or use real exam questions from past papers and consider how little you know and understand
o Stop to take a break- Have a coffee or short walk and mentally review what you have achieved. Return to your studies.
o You will find that the process of activity and review will be useful and will help you to set a pattern of study.
o Quality of study- Remember that it is not time itself spent on studying which matters, it is the quality of the exercise of studying. Develop an understanding of the material you are working on. Information simply committed to memory will rarely see you safely through your exams.
o Choice of material- Don't shy away from material which you find most difficult to understand because if you do it will be precisely this material which will be problematic for you in the exam. Take this material first.
o Problems- If there are sections of the syllabus, which you cannot understand, try to find the appropriate lecturer to help you. But try not to leave this until the day before the exam. Ask someone on the same course as you. If these strategies don't work for you try using a variety of different textbooks, some authors explain difficult concepts better than others.
Concentration is the ability to direct one's thinking in whatever direction one would intend. We all have the ability to concentrate sometimes.
Think of the time when you were engrossed in super novel or in a cinema -Total concentration. But at other times your thoughts are scattered and you mind races from one thing to another. Learn and practice concentration strategies.
Poor concentration- External causes
Revision is a process of looking over past work as preparation for examination. It is an activity which can produce good results and reduce 'exam nerves' if it is carefully planned and carried out in a systematic way. Black coffee and sleepless nights just before your exams rarely allow you to do justice to your talents.
Towards end of a course, a review of your completed written work and of past examination papers will often indicate the existence of close links between exam questions and essays, assignments and project work. On this basis, you select your own best work and use it for revision. Work, which has been less successful, should contain advice from a tutor and this can be followed up.
What revisions can do for you:
* Extends your ability to assess your own knowledge and understanding.
* Provides an opportunity to analyze this in relation to the requirements of the examination.
* Enable you to pass examination and gain recognition for your talents.
GUIDELINES FOR SUCCESSFUL REVISION
* Make sure you know well in advance the topics to be covered in the particular exam.
* Keep copies of all course documents, projects, essay questions, title of assignments and reading list on file.
* Make this the basis of your revision. Resist the temptation to try to start your course all over again from the beginning.
* Review your own the assessed work, making a selection of that with the best grade.
* Compare your own work with the question asked as past question papers.
* At this stage it is vital that you will have enough material to answer all the likely questions.
* If you decide on to expand what you have already got, look at less successful papers and see if you can improve them by careful editing, filling in gaps, correcting errors of fact or understanding.
* Reduce each piece of work to note form.
Avoid overload. Organize your hours to include ample time for rest, relaxation, sleep, eating, exercising and socializing. Break the study time into manageable amounts of time to avoid boredom and loss of concentration. Sessions lasting 20-30 minutes are the best Studying for six half hour sessions is much more effective than studying for 3 straight hours.
Don't put everything off until the last minute.
PRACTICE EFFECTIVE STUDY TECHNIQUES
Have appropriate study environments.
Split large task into more manageable tasks.
Read for comprehension rather than get to the end of the chapter.
Be prepared to ask questions as they come up during study, rather than waiting until just before and exam.
Don't wait until the last minute to complete your projects.
Read the syllabus as soon as you get it and note all due dates( and milestone times) on your calendar.
Be a model student.
Be attentive and participative in the class and punctual, prepared and eager to learn.
BE ABLE TO BE FLEXIBILE
The unexpected happenings, e.g. Sickness, need to be able to fit into our schedule.
Know how to rearrange your schedule when necessary (so that it doesn't manage you, but you manage it).
HAVE A VISION
Don't forget the big picture.
Why are you doing the task? Is it important for your long-term goals? Have and follow a personal mission statement (personal and career) Are your activities ultimately helping you to achieve your goals.
Know what is important to you.
(What do you value most)
Have a positive attitude.
