77 Easy and Short Studying Tips

1. Clean the room/house, make some notes and other stuff while you have time for this, do not spend it using social networks.

2. Use fineliners, markers, and color pens, whatever you prefer.

3. If you use the “The Pomodoro Technique”, change the length of the intervals and breaks from time to time.

4. Use a glider. Let it be small. Take it with you everywhere and use every free minute to repeat some materials.

5. Find out what time of day you think and learn better.

6. If you have some problems with your subjects take some time to catch up on what you do not understand. Fortunately, now there is a huge amount of resources to do this (use Coursera or YouTube videos, for example). You can also use the services of a tutor. Do not consider it shameful.

7. Also, do not be ashamed to use the help of a tutor. Today it is very easy to find a professional tutor online (use online tutoring platforms like TutorZ.com, for example).

8. You can use the phone as a glider. But the best choice is to have both: electronic and paper.

9. Do not worry if you failed the test or something like that. Look back, find your error and fix it!10. If during class you want to be distracted, to have something to do, then write these things on a separate piece of paper. After you’re done, you can do all these things. (More to come on when you practice at home)

10. If during the class you have a new idea in your mind but you do not want to be distracted, write these things on a separate piece of paper and do them later.

11. In the breaks between classes eat something healthy, not too sweet or fatty.

12. Try to write down the questions that arise during the lectures.

13. Try to answer questions that arise in the process of reading of a paragraph. Do it without any teacher’s help.

14. Read the information on a particular topic outside the classroom. It may even help you in the classroom. The teacher will know that you are interested in a subject, in the studying. But do not forget about the basic homework that you are asked to do.

15. Don’t sit far away, try to find a comfortable place to sit to hear a teacher and see a blackboard well.

16. Try to fall asleep before midnight.

17. Or count sleep cycles ( for example, use the website sleepyti.me or any other app).

18. As soon as you wake up, get up out of your bed and workout a little bit.

19. Work hard from the beginning of the year. After all, almost all of people wait for success “later”, but real success comes to those who work every day, from the very beginning.

20. Take some snacks and drink a lot during or in between classes. Drink preferably water. You can add some fruit, mint or lemon.

21. Make notes on little pieces of paper. Limit the number of sheets for each topic in order to write only the most important and needed information.

27. Put priorities in your studying. For example, if in any subject you already have some good knowledge, then you can study it less and focus on another subject.

28. Make flashcards only if you do not understand something or if the information is very important. Again, priorities, do not sit all day, doing only the notes.
