Study Methods
~ Set aside time specifically made for studying, even if you are not motivated to do so. Habit is key.
Read any assigned readings before class to get a sense of what you are learning that day.
~ Take effective in-class notes by picking a method that fits your studying/learning style.
   ~ Notes do not have to be incredibly neat in class!
~ Clarify any confusion by asking a professor or teacher.
Rewrite notes if desired.
Write questions that may be asked on a test and answer them.
~ Review verbally to ingrain words and concepts in your mind.
Explain the concept to a friend - "teaching" is one of the best ways to learn!
~ Identify main ideas and concepts, and connect them to the "bigger picture" or previously-learned concepts.
