Do you think you lack of concentration when you study? Or everything you study can't go in you mind, well, I also have this problem, so search for the "medicine", and now I've created a "How to study efficiently" :) Since my first term is coming soon, *tomorrow!!!*
Find Out What Kind of Study Methods suit You!
There are two main kind of study methods
1. Study individually
2. Study in group (Recommended!)
Well, for me, I'll prefer group study, this is a awesome way to study, try it, and you will know what's the difference between the two methods. But if you think that study individually is more better, just do it, because everyone has their own personality :)
Put away what you do not need for the study session. Seeing reminders of other assessments may increase your anxiety and distract you.
Study at the Same Time, Same Place
Study at the same time and at the same place, devoted to study only. This helps you to associate the time and place with studying and concentrating.
Set a Goal
You must set a goal, this is kind of like self motivation, you can study much more better if you set a goal. E.g. You want to get top 10 in the class or get straight A's for the exam :)
Create Your Own Notes
While you studying, grab a notebook and write all the things as simple as possible. For a good notes, it must have lots of pictures, you can change the words in to pictures. By the way, you can also use some colors while doing your notes, the colors can increase the efficiency of studying :)
Always Hold a Pencil/Pen While You Reading
Well, maybe this is quite "childish" to do this, but let your hand+pen guide what are you reading will definitely increase your concentration.
Take Breaks Every Hour
It is important to take a break before you feel tired and lose your concentration completely. Regular breaks at least once an hour helps to sustain your concentration. If the work is not going too well and you have difficulties in concentrating, you may need a long break and go back to it later.
Drink Water Often
Drink plenty of water during a study session, especially when you feel sluggish.
Never Force Yourself
Forcing information during the last few days before exam is incredibly inefficient. Instead try to slowly interlink ideas as they come to you so studying becomes a quick recap rather than a first attempt at learning.
Sleep On It
This doesn't mean that sleep on the book, *Wenqi's idea* it is study before you sleep. Study before going to bed unless you are physically or mentally overtired. Freshly learned material is better remembered after a period of sleep than after an equal period of daytime activity because retroactive interference takes place.
