How to Study Efficiently

Sometimes it gets difficult to manage with studying. You study but since you are given many tasks to do, it happens that you get discouraged and you think that you will never succeed. It usually happens during the first year at the university when everything is new, you have no system yet and it seems that everyone is requiring too much. You need some time to realize that simply your life has changed and therefore you need to change your way of studying. Here are some advices to help you overcome the difficulties.

Take the Best Out of Your Classes

First thing to do is to attend your classes. Nothing actually could be compared to the experience you get when listening to your professor. Remember that he prepares lectures for each class and they do not necessarily repeat the books. What you are going to get out oh him is much more. There might be even some researches of his own included and you might hear information which is not written anywhere. Besides, there is nothing like the personal experience. In addition, you and your colleagues may ask questions.

Write

Regardless of how good your memory is, after several classes on different subjects, you will forget most of the details. Therefore it is important that you take notes. You may take notes not only of the facts that you here but also of some details and clues you would like to check later on in the library. It is good not only to take notes at the lecture but to read carefully your notes at home and if necessary, rewrite them clearly and in more details. That will be of much help when your exams approach.

Study regularly

Regardless that this is the first thing you hear at school, very little of us do it. It is a basic principle to study regularly. When you study regularly, you have the time to digest the new information, think about it and apprehend it. Well, if we have to be honest, that is not the case. Usually we miss classes and hope that we’ll be able to catch up just before the exam. There’s nothing more wrong than that. When we push ourselves to study great deal of information for limited time, let’s say a couple of nights before an exam, we not only get exhausted but also it is very likely that we forget most of it prior to the exam. What is sure is that when studying this way we are not storing any knowledge long term. So, just cling to the well known system and study regularly. You will be thankful for that once the exams come.

Read

It is good that you do as your professor tells you. If he is providing a list of additional sources to be read, better read them. Remember, it is much easier that he tells you what to read, compared to the efforts you need to make in order to find the books which are important for your study. Be clever, profit of your professors.
