How to Study to Pass
Having not studied, you will fail. Many, when they have studied, still fail. How can you study to pass? In learning how to study to pass, you need to account for things that affect studying.
You should not waste any time, because it is not much, and it is not retrievable. To not waste time, create a schedule in which you set study times. In making the schedule, find the optimum time for each activity. Morning time is better for learning new information, and afternoon and night time are better for arranging the connecting the new to the old. The night is, of course, for sleep, but if you're a night owl, treat your nights as others do their mornings. You can workout whenever in the day and have similar results. Naps are good from two in the afternoon to around five. The journal, Thinking and Reasoning, found that people create new ideas when they're fatigued. So, working long hours makes you more creative. This may explain creators like Steve Jobs' usually being burnt out when they make something brilliant. On the other hand, the analytical thinking was constant through the day. All in all, waste no time and use it to bring out your full potential
The National Sleep Foundation recommends that fourteen to 17-year-olds sleep eight to 10 hours. Eighteen to 64-year-olds should sleep seven to nine hours. And those 65 and above should sleep seven to eight hours of sleep. Although it is not exact, these guidelines are a good base to set your sleep times. Also, remember that wider sleep times does not give you more benefits if the sleep is bad. This bad sleep occurs when noise disturbs your sleep, or you wake many times in the night. You can wake from flickering lights, the technology that turns on and off, consumption of alcohol or caffeine, an unfit bed and pillows, and high or low temperatures. Since bad sleep results in drowsiness, you must prevent these factors from turning your sleep bad. The lack of good sleep also affects mood, which determines your ability to receive and remember new information.Good sleep, on the other hand, refreshes neurons. The neurons can then retrieve information from within the mind swiftly and process new information efficiently. With information, therefore, at your fingertips, you can make timely decisions. The swiftness of these neurons also augments creativity. Despite that some say they do not need sleep, to study, they do, and so do you. Maintain the amount of good sleep right for you, because sleep influences how you'll study and whether you'll pass.
Every three minutes an office worker becomes distracted. To regain focus, it takes 25 minutes. None have vast amounts of concentration direct out the womb. You can train your brain to concentrate, though, with a few tips.A few hours after waking is when the brain is at optimal concentration potential. It's this same way after a nap. Reward your brain with five to 15-minute breaks for concentrating for long. The break can be a walk, thinking time, or a nap. Walks reduce fatigue, boost moods, and relieve stress. Twenty-five to 30-minute naps boost energy; 60 to 90-minute ones help memory as eight hours of sleep do. Breaks should not be social media time because social media time does little good. Do not multitask. And meditating can help you practice focus.
Section each topic. Then study section by section. Understanding involves four components: asking why, speaking to yourself, making connections, and summarizing.Asking why and answering it gets to the reason for an action or event. Also, remember to make your answer clear and logical, or else you haven't answered why.Speaking to yourself answers why verbally. While you speak to yourself, others may think you ill. They're unaware of that explaining to yourself helps you learn near three times more than them, who do not.Summarizing is writing, or speaking of, all you've learned - or the summation of your 'why' answers. It, therefore, tests your memory and understanding of the whole section or topic. Even if you did not remember everything, you then revise and revise and revise.Side Note: Notes are the written forms of all these.Although memorization is always necessary, to understand is key, especially for complex topics. To pass, do not forget to understand.
Visualization (& Other Senses), Stories, & Repetition
Visualization is picturing an idea or word. For example, for the word prelate, you would picture a man in robes and a triangular hat while in a church. For a baker, you would picture a man in white clothes and a white triangular hat. Although, for the baker, you would involve a smell because the smell of a bakery and thus its baker is a baker's distinguishing trait.Repetition is essential.
