The key to being a good student is learning how to read fluently, not hard. This is especially true as you progress toward your education. An hour or two of study a day is usually enough to get you through high school with a good grade, but when college comes, there are not enough hours in the day to get all your education if you don’t know how to study. discreetly.
Although some students can breathe in school with little effort, this is different. Most successful students achieve their success by developing and implementing effective learning habits. The following are the top 10 study habits used by the most successful students. So if you want to be a successful student, do not be discouraged, do not be discouraged, work on improving each of the learning habits below and you will see your grades increase, your knowledge grows, and your ability to learn. read and integrate information better.
Do not try to rush through the material
Have you ever found yourself sleeping too much at night and wasting too much energy trying to keep your eyelids open than you are reading? If so, it is time for a change. Successful students tend to shorten their work and seldom try to combine all their learning into one or two sessions. If you want to be a good student, you need to learn to be consistent in your studies and to have regular study sessions, however short.
Decide when you will study.
Successful students plan specific times throughout the week for study – and then stick to their schedule. Students who study part-time and suddenly do not do as well as students with a fixed reading schedule. Even if you are all stuck with your studies, building a weekly schedule, setting aside a few days a week, to review your studies will ensure that you develop habits that will enable you to succeed in your education for a long time. term.
It is not only important that you plan when you will study, it is also important that you create a consistent daily study routine. When you study at the same time each day and each week, reading will become a regular part of your life. You will be better prepared mentally and emotionally for each study period and each study will have excellent results. If you have to change your schedule from time to time because of unexpected events, fine, but get back to your routine as soon as the event is over.
Each study period should have a specific goal.
Just reading without guidance does not work. You need to know exactly what you need to accomplish during each study session. Before you start studying, set a learning session goal that supports your overall academic goal (i.e. memorize 30 words in vocabulary to improve word choice in a future Spanish exam.)
Never postpone your scheduled study time.
It is very easy, and often, to postpone your study time because of a lack of interest in the subject because you have other things to do, or simply because the assignment is difficult. Successful students do not procrastinate. If you postpone your study time, your study will not be successful and you may not get everything you need. Procrastination also leads to haste, and haste is the first cause of mistakes.
Start with the hardest lesson first.
Since your hard work or study will require much effort and mental effort, you should start with it. Once you have completed the most difficult task, it will be much easier to finish all your work. Believe it or not, starting with the most difficult lesson will greatly improve your study performance and your academic performance.
Always review your notes before starting work.
Before you can review your notes you should first have notes to review. Always make sure you take good notes in class. Before you begin each study session and before beginning any assignment, review your notes to make sure that you will be able to complete the assignment well. Reviewing your notes before each study session will help you to remember the important material that has been covered during the day, and to ensure that your reading is objective and effective.
Make sure you are not distracted while reading.
Everyone is distracted by something. Maybe TV. Or maybe your family. Or maybe it’s too quiet. Some people learn better with small background noise. If you get distracted while reading (1) you lose your train of thought and (2) you can’t concentrate – both of which will lead to less effective study. Before you start studying, find a place where you will not be distracted or distracted. For some people, this is a quiet cabin inside the library. For some, it is in a normal position where there is small background noise.
Use effective study groups.
Have you ever heard the saying “two heads are better than one?” This can be especially true when it comes to studying. Working in groups enables you to (1) get help from others when you are trying to understand a concept, (2) complete assignments quickly, and (3) teach others, as you help yourself and other students and you learn within the lesson. issue. However, research teams may not work well if they are not organized and if team members come unprepared. Successful students use effective study groups.
Review your notes, homework, and other classroom activities over the weekend.
Successful students review what they learned during the week over the weekend. In this way, they are well prepared to continue learning new ideas that build on previous lessons and the information they gained last week.
