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

Kristina J.
A get ready routine: i put my books on the table, pick up my favorite tools and put on pink noise (I heard it's good for memorization) ofcourse i put my phone away, but to motivate this i turn on Forest so I can plant a tree while studying. Thank you for reading my reply :D!

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.

Maja B.
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.

Writing in a book and trying to understand it through practice books helps me memorize really well it would be better if I have personal tutor

Katrine N.
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.

Lavende R E M N.
I listen to music while studying. When I’m reading my lesson, I keep a pen and a block note near me, so I write everything on this note book while I am reading the lesson

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

Esmeralda P.
I try to repeat what I just read with simple words and examples that I can understand and remember easily when I’m repeating the subject or topic. Or I use visual recall, that means that I use different color for different topic. Example yellow: key word pink: for words I don’t know blue: for example etc.

Chester N.
For me, I often use flashcard (StudySmarter) for subject that contains a lot of theory that needs to be memorized, like Civic Education and History. For subject which more focused on implementation, like Math and Physic, I often watch explanation video and do practice problem (Khan Academy).

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

Albani Z.
I write what i want to memorize many times so it can be stuck to my memories also everyday i study 30 mins of the stuff that i studied the day before so i can not forget anything

Shreyash Z.
I don't have good memorizing skills , i like to understand first so I just little memorize . First I write something on paper then remember.

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

Maisana D.
Space effect and deep concentration are the most thing that are goving me a full understandig and memorization of the topic .

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

It S N.
I use pomodoro timer and stopwatches with daily rewards(focus plant). I listein to ambient music and motivational speeches. For memorizing I create Mnemonics and small chits and stick them to the wall.

Anjali T.
I find I understand a topic and recall it best by taking handwritten notes. I focus on understanding what something means logically and reading up on as many examples as possible. Videos and visuals can be very helpful. It makes it easier for me to remember something when I take these steps.

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.

Karolina X.
The way you write notes can be super beneficial to remembering and studying. Go and find a note taking method that works for you!

Nora Q.
At first I separate each topics I want to study then I start reading first top.I read 2-3 times a sentence until I understand the topic and I start to check whether it memorised and then I say that topic without looking it and that topic is cmpltly memorised for me…I think it’s better to understand the topic with reading and then to memorize

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.

Marius Z.
Blurting!! Reading something then writing it down after purely on memory. Best strategy imo.
Then past paper questions also flash cards

Eries G.
A pen, a paper and a higlighter. By writing some important details and higlighting that one word that describe it. This way your brain may familiarize some details that describe that one word. And light color can attract your eyes.

Kyle G.
My self-made flash cards on an app (quizlet),study a few minutes on that same day before going in the paper,day something the day before reading loud and try to remember every detail then note done what you remember the next day

Hope this helps

William Z.
My memorizing tools is write abot everything that i considering important, that way somethings that i study are engraved in my mind

Puteri A.
I only use pen and paper, i will draw and imagine about it, it will makes me easier to remember quickly, sometimes you will forget what u already memorised, it is normal,
So what are you gonna do is..
Repeat it everyday or takes 3 days to repeat the same thing u want to remember for a longer time
