What are some good memorizing tools you use when studying?

Maria D.
I like to make myself flash-cards with questions/words on the front and answers/definitions on the back. That way I can test myself with active recall

Tri A.
Copying down notes and explaining a concept to myself using my own words and my own analogies. The second option is more helpful in memorizing topics for longer as you already understand what you are studying. This is how I can still recall key ideas from my sociology classes that I can still apply relevantly in my everyday life now.

I try to get a basic understanding of things and then test myself. I mostly do that with flashcards.
Also i rewrite some of my notes – just pretty yk and that kinda motivates me.

If you can multitask I would listen to some soft instrumental music to help you focus and study. It’s also a good idea to have a snack on hand.

Anh Q.
It is difficult for me to focus on somethings. So that I ussualy writw to do list everyday and try to complete them. I like listening the audio which bring me good energy. Sometimes, I created a stressed deadline to complete my assignment. But it make me too difficult to sleep, I am too worry

Shekinah A.
I use flashcards and some learning applications that involves studying and memorization like, quizlet and study smarter.

Shany P.
I try to be present, take some deep breaths, drink some water and get back to what I was doing because it is hard for me to memorize when my mind is wondering off my study. Other trick is to visualize mentally what I’m trying to memorize so all of my focus is directed to that.

The Blurt method ….I think that's the name
Where you read through the information then recite/ write down everything you remember on another page

Malek N.
I use space repetition through Anki or make summary for the lecture that I took today on notion. This is the main study methods that I use these days

Georgia N.
The blurt technique works really well for me, where you memorise a sentence and scribble as much down as u can remember and check and keep writing it until you get it right, i did this with all my textbooks and worked really well for my GCSES and Alevels, same with flash cards which trigger what u memorised in the text book, i made a flash card for each page.

Sarvesh X.
I use flash cards and use a review system that I coded on my own-which reminds me whenever i have to study about something

Nikolett R.
I usually take time to make a short summary myself – this way, I'm forced to concentrate on the important things and see connections between them which will make it easier to condense it. Actually interacting with the material this way really helps me memorize it – I can attach an experience to it. It's even better when I write/draw the summary by hand.

Hatice B.
I write notes on my own after every subject is taught
I Draw a flow chart or mind map on by notes book and my whiteboard
I try to solve mcqs to check my ability to memorize

Victor Z.
Write short notes in my own ,try it make it the form of a flow chart or connected , use highlighters of different colour according to the importance of the content, sticky notes for extra information.

One tool I would recommend is using spaced repetition with a flashcard app/website such as Anki, Knowt, and Quizlet. This will help you to store the information in your long term memory and better recall it. If you are close to an exam and want a last minute studying technique, I would say do as many past papers or previous exam questions as possible. Another way to see how much you really know the content and where some gaps in your knowledge may lie, I would say try explaining the topic to someone who knows nothing about it or just pretending to explain to someone. As this is quite a brief overview of some studying techniques, I would recommend checking out youtubers like Ali Abdaal and Fayefilms etc. for some more in depth tips on studying.

Jesse P.
I am a visual learner so I like to use a lot of colour on my notes when I am summarizing. I like using a bullet point format because it is short and simple and leaves out the unnecessary bits. You could also try reading the notes you made out loud.
