So, I know there seem to be many students on here and I thought it might be a neat idea if we posted some of our studying or homework strategies. Perhaps we can learn from one another!

I'm mostly making this topic in order to avoid this awful paper that I'm supposed to be writing that's due tomorrow haha.

I'll start.

A great way for me to learn and remember whatever was said in class is to take notes and type them out within a week of learning it. The timing is important because as you type, you may remember things that you didn't get a chance to write down in class. As you type out your notes, it's almost like you're reinforcing the ideas into your brain. That way, when it comes time to study for an exam, I have a neat set of notes all typed out that are much easier to review. Plus, you'll be surprised at how much more you know just by typing it out earlier!

I'm a strong believer in the concept that if you don't know the material the night before an exam, it's much better for your memory to review it all once and then get a good night's sleep rather than pulling an all-nighter.

I have found study solice in the same round a bout way you do, retyping notes is great way to reinforce information and help remember the small details of facts. but the best way to study.. and I mean BEST.. is to read every note you have to study for upcoming next day test, then go sit quietly close your eyes and meditate. Think about everything you have read and get to the place where your almost asleep but yur brains stilll going crazy, and just focus on the things you can remember from what you have just read or typed. i find this works also really well when needing to think of a good thesis or any areas of a paper you may be stuck completing.

This probably won't work for anyone else, but I've got a trick for when I'm writing essays. I'm not a huge fan of dub step, but when I blast it at full volume on my headphones, essays pour out of me like waterfalls.

Also, there are a few memory tricks you can use. I had a friend who would always chew a specific gum when studying for a test, and then would come back and chew the same gum when actually taking the test. She claimed it worked quite well.

Don't eat red meat, swap it for fish. Drink lots of water and eat a balanced diet, if you fill your body with rubbish it'll make you feel crappy and affect concentration.

Don't follow a set way of learning, do what suits YOU. Study with your favourite music playing, recite facts forwards and backwards in an accent, make up songs about key events. The list is endless.

If you're tired, stop. Sleep, your brain needs care.

Make a schedule, stick to it. Make sure you have an evening off to relax.

The most important thing is caring for yourself. Don't neglect your well-being in favour of stress-induced study, it won't help you. Stress mixed with a neglected body will make learning even harder. You will succeed, and even if you don't it's not the end of the world. You might be told that your entire future hinges on a single exam result, but really it's not true. There are many roads to a destination, if you are meant to get there you will.

There have actually been studies about chewing gum/eating food while taking exams. I don't know the science behind it, but apparently it does work. I chew gum during exams.

There's nothing like a good old college class to remind you just how stupid you really are...i should study.

And it might sound funny, but I would buy a O-Z just to get you in my bedroom.

Having small snacks to nibble on..like almonds, or chocolates. Never study on an empty stomach and always have a bottle of water with you. Another thing is to always give youself a 5 minute mental break after 15 minutes if studying.

Once I actually get all my reading done I re-write what I remember on Word or on paper..this will help you see as to what you missed and what you already have pat down. Lastly, if you have a lot of key terms and a lexicon, you should make a list of the key words and make sure theyre all defined....hope this helps
