Needless to say, my block exams have started and I'm studying hard over the weekend to get ready for that maths exam on Monday!

And I was asking some friends for studying advice, and I tried Googling some stuff and I thought 'Hey! This might be an interesting topic!'

So, what are some studying tricks you have or know of that help you stay focused, or remember something better?

In the past I've tried associating phases or words with an equation. Like SOH-CAH-TOA becomes 'soccer' for me, and then it's easy to just go from there to 'soccahtoa!'
My teacher tried teaching it to me by remembering 'some old hags can't always hide their old age' but that was too long >.<

I've also used that thing where you make up a phrase and the first letter of each word is the first letter of the thing you're supposed to remember, like with remembering the order of the planets, or the levels of classifications for animals!

So that's two techniques that have proved helpful for me to remember some stuff. How about for the rest of you? I'm sure you all have a little trick or a tip to share c:

Do lots of homework problems...lots of them. Don't even stop doing homework problems. If math were an RPG, grinding is your only option.

It might not work as with maths but when I was studying Aged Care then later down the track Fitness I uses to have giant notes all over my wall and I would read them litterately 20 times through ever night and morning. Also had flash cards at one point with question/anwsers on each side came in particaully handy for my anatomy studies in Fitness.

Write small sections of notes on Post-its and put them all over the place in places you're going to stand and see them, such as on the fridge, or around the toilet (sorry, first place which came to mind where you couldn't go anywhere for a bit).

That way, every time you, for example, go grab a drink, you can read a couple of notes on the fridge door. Worked for me at least. Depends on the subject though I guess.

Different people learn easier with different methods, for example some will remember the information easier by writing the information with a pen and paper, some will learn easier by saying what they're reading, some learn easier by being read to.

Although repetition helps a lot, if you're learning in a way that you have difficulty with will make you learn much slower.

Eggs and fish in general are good for the brain.

The human brain usually remembers the beginning and the end of a long session, taking a few minutes every 15 minutes or so to rest and reflect on what you've studied will help a lot.

Lack of blood flowing to the brain won't help, if you get fatigued you can try some breathing exercises to help your brain acquire more oxygen (moving around or stretching every so often helps as well).

First of all you should consider what lesson are you going to study, Each lesson requires it's own technique.

For example math, you should just practice by solving different difficulties yourself without seeing the answer on a draft and then check the answer and see how have you solved the problem. It's the best and most effective way I've learnt through my student era.

For memorising lessons what you should do is reading the lines over and over to keep that in mind and memorise that.

And don't forget take a good rest and eat well to have energy for studying. A tired brain is useless.

You could take some supplement like Fish oil, when i was studying i used to take that and somehow i got more concentrated in classes and pretty much i remembered most of the theories and then do them during practical.
