I take notes and often reorganise content visually , a mind map for example. I prefer pen and paper because it’s faster and more flexible then digital. If I want to add a circle, an arrow, a star, add some colour, I will do it on paper. I find it useful to take breaks and revisit content as I will see things I didn’t see in the first place. But it’s also important to get an uninterrupted flow so I often set a timer to make sure I stay focused.
The favorite way for me is to put a schedule that makes me know what I have to study, I start and I sometimes put on some calm music for studying, it makes me feel soooo calm. I start studying in the noon till the night. So I finish everything.
Using the Pomodoro technique: study for 25 minutes without interruptions, then take a 5-minute break. After 2 hours, take a longer break (15 minutes.)
I have set up the focus mode on my phone to activate every work day at the same time. I only check my phone on breaks. I listen to music while studying, but it may be distracting for some people. 😁
Paraphrase and visualise. I need visualisation to help me focus. I also convert text to audio when I just cannot focus. But most of the time, a stretch or wander a little around my room works the best. I guess it’s relaxing the brain muscle so that it can get to work again.
Before I study I always clean my room and prepare a tea to drink while studying. Most of the times I try to be with my friend and study together. If I am alone I listen to music. If you do this method remember that the music is just a beat because words can distract you. If I have to learn something I read again before bed and this helps me to remember it the next day. That's all. ヾ(＾-＾)ノ
I like to pay attention in class so I only have to revise. I I have a test coming up I like to write organized notes. But I always leave it for last minute
In general, I prefer to study with music and in a room where nothing disturbs me and distracts me. I usually study for tests in the morning before the test or rewrite the material the day before. On the other hand, I don't like it when I study with someone at the same time, except my best friend, I like to learn with her, because we respect each other and don't interfere, we just complement each other's knowledge.
For me, I use many different study methods. Everyone is different, so I tested a few and decided on the method which worked best for me. I personally use Quizlet, an online app which is great for revision in definitions or flash cards. Some prefer look, cover, write, check though. Others may choose to write notes on cards and place them around their house instead.
