The thing that really gave me extra knowledge in the classes I was taking in college, was working in the library-books/periodicals. You just pick up on so much stuff by working there that you otherwise wouldn't know about. I mean, you are just naturally exposed to it, and it's not like going to the library to find some item regarding one subject. Really makes a difference.

I accidentally discovered that if I 'warm up' my brain by doing 1 or 2 sudoku puzzles before studying math, the lesson seems easier and sticks in my brain better.
Wish I'd discovered this a long time ago.

Are you - or is a member of your family in a chorus/choir or studying music? You can now download classical excerpts to listen to and practice with at home very inexpensively. I like the UK site The pieces are less then $1 each.

When I was a student I used to write important details in blue. A week before exams and recorded weekly quizzes, I write an output of the weekly lessons on a piece of paper using blue ink. Write the output as early as possible to get more time to study. I can read my lessons while I write important things to remember. I write them in blue so that I can recall which words I wrote with such color. The said color is relaxing to the eyes. Blue ink is also used in signatures to easily identify its originality.

You will hear from lots of people that the best way to study is in a quiet comfortable location free of distractions. While that works for many people, it doesn't work for everyone. I had a roommate that couldn't stand any sort of distraction when studying. I on the other hand cannot stand the quiet. My mind drifts off, I get sleepy. I like to listen to music or watch TV when I study. So forget the advice about studying. Do whatever it is that helps you learn and stay motivated. Just be sure to actually study.

Studying can be boring. After reading an entire chapter of text, can you remember the facts presented in the chapter? How much of what you read can you actually understand and apply during the tests or exams?


There is a fun way to take notes and actually make the chapter come to live.

Ever heard of Mind Mapping?

No, it is not about anything psychic. It is simply drawing colorful images to represent things. It can be used for summarizing the facts in a book and retaining what you have read. It can also be used as a brainstorming tool or for planning. Personally, I use it a lot in my work. It helps me be more effective.

So how do you start?

Get some color pnecils and blank paper, or a sketchbook.

Go through the section or chapter you are revising.

Once you have illustrated each main fact and the related detail, you have a mind map that helps you see the full picture at a glance. Drawing it out in color helps your remember what you just illustrated.
