Effective Study Skills

Effective Study Skills:
If you want to succeed academically, it is essential that you learn some critical study skills. Whether you are in elementary school or in college, there are some time-tested methods that can help you to get the most out of your study time and achieve your learning goals.

Tips for Effective Studying:

- Dedicated study area:

When you are studying, you should be free from all potential distractions. Find a quiet place where you will not be interupted by family or friends, and do not have your cell phone or other unnecessary electronic devices closeby. If you need a change of scene, find a spot at your library or study center.

- Good time management:
When creating a study plan, it is good to schedule blocks of study time of between 20 - 50 minutes in duration. However, it is important to take into account your own preferences. Do you find it easier to focus on study first thing in the morning or in the evening? Do you find it difficult to concentrate on the task at hand for 50 minutes and find it more beneficial to take a break after 30 minutes? If you are studying particularly complicated material, you may need to schedule shorter study blocks. Try to do something physically active during your breaks.

- Prioritize your work:
When you are studying, try to get into the habit of starting with the subject or task that you find most difficult. By doing them when your energy is at its peak, you will find the work easier.

- Use lists:
Optimize your study time by using lists to ensure you are on track to meet your learning goals. Create a weekly study schedule for yourself and break that down further into daily to-do lists and goals. Make sure you schedule enough time to get a good night's sleep!

- Study with friends:
Occasionally, you might find it beneficial to study in a group. Quiz each other on the subject, and use study aids such as flash cards to help test each others knowledge. Explaining a concept to anyone who might be unclear on it will help you to retain it better.

- Improve your note-taking skills:
If you have a good typing speed, type your notes instead of hand-writing them whenever possible. They will be easier to read and to organize when reviewing them. There are programs which are designed specifically for note-taking, including Evernote and OneNote. Becoming familiar with keyboard shortcuts will also increase your speed. 

There are many cases where it is preferable to take notes by hand. Make sure that your handwriting is as legible as possible, and keep a separate notebook for each class you take. Only write down the main points. Do not stress yourself by trying to capture every sentence, you will end up missing key information. If you do miss a point, make a note of it and make sure you follow up after class.
