What’s your study technique? For a long time, I didn’t have one, but since I found this way of doing things, my studying game has really changed. Want to feel that too? Ok, then do this:
Take notes. During a lecture, take notes. Don’t write everything that’s on the teacher’s power point but make notes so that you understand and remember what the teacher was talking about.
Read the notes. After the lecture or when you get home, read the notes you took and see if you get what you’ve written. Do you? Good. If not, go back to the teacher’s power point or a book and make sure you do.
- Record your notes. Ok, so this is the part people might feel a little uneasy about. Record yourself reading your notes out loud. When you read, do it like you were telling someone else about the thing you’ve written on your paper/computer. That way you reflect a little on what your notes say.
- Take a walk. Put on your headphones and listen to your notes while walking to school or the gym or wherever. This way you get the info in five different ways: the lecture, taking notes, reading notes, recording notes and now listening to them.
As I said, it might feel weird to record yourself and to listen to yourself but trust me when I say that it feels really nice to study when walking in the forest. And it feels nice to get away from the books and the computer sometimes. If you try it, please tell us how it went!
Be well. Talk to you soon!
