INTRODUCTION I wrote this e book because I know just how hard it is to find effective study skills on the Internet or at your educational institution When I was in my final year of High School I spent hours upon hours researching study skills and spent hundreds of dollars to attend workshops on various study techniques It was a very time consuming and costly endeavor but after modifying and implementing these study skills they significantly increased my grades and I was able to get into my dream course Bachelor of Arts at the University of Melbourne which is the top university in Australia Not only that I had the grades to guarantee a spot in law commerce and engineering in the top universities in Australia Now I wish to share these study skills with current students in the hope that they won t have to go through the same process that I did to find modern study skills I hope you gain as much as I did using these study skills and I will see you in the upcoming chapters I

techniCIuescouponCodeThankvou9 Now onward to achieving superb grades CHAPTER 1 EFFECTIVE WAYS To STAY MOTIVATED One of the most important factors you absolutely need to achieve great grades is the motivation to study For no matter how smart or talented you are in your chosen subjects if you are not motivated to study the content to the best of your ability you will probably not achieve the best grades that you can Because staying consistently motivated can be such an uphill battle especially with the curve balls that life throws at us I will eXplain several different methods that I have found to be extremely effective in maintaining motivation By implementing these motivational techniques I believe you will be more willing to study and more able to use the other methods taught in this e book 100 REASONS To SUCCEED A powerful motivator that will help you maintain motivation is writing 100 reasons on why you MUST achieve the grades you are aiming for Some examples could include 1 I need a high score to study Law at insert university 2 I want to obtain an academic scholarship 3 I want to make my family and friends proud etc Now you must be thinking what I did when I tried this at first I don t have a 100 reasons And it would take far too long to think up that many While I know that you probably have thought of some reasons why you want to obtain the grades that you are aiming for they can be easily forgotten in stressful periods such as exam time or when your homework piles up You may also temporarily forget your reasons due to a personal event which causes you to doubt your own abilities Also writing down 100 reasons also gives you clarity on why it is so important that you achieve the grades that you have set for yourself I found that by the 30th to 40th reason you are forced to think deeply and creatively This thought allows you to think of new reasons why you want to succeed which in turn strengthens your will to study as hard as it takes to achieve you dream grades Once you have finished writing your 100 reasons I want you to place them in easily Viewable places around your home Examples can include the fridge bathroom door on your bedroom wall and in your study area I highly recommend that you do this as you will be constantly reminded why you must continue studying hard and keep up the hard work IMAGINE THE GOOD AND THE BAD ENDING In my mind this is one of the best ways to maintain a high level of motivation all the time Throughout history it has been proven that strong mental imagery can greatly alter a person s perception on certain topics To use this to our advantage I want you to think about the good and the bad ending upon when you open your final grades First I want you to imagine the good ending Visualize this Image that you are opening up the letter with your final grades You are quickly reading through your results and then you suddenly pause With excitement swelling up inside you you find that not only did you achieve the grades that you were aiming for but you surpassed them and your wildest eXpectations With adrenaline rushing through your veins you tell your family and close friends the score that you received They are overwhelmed with joy and praise you for being a high achiever and for successfully accomplishing what you have set for yourself When you look back at the days when you were studying for your course you mainly re ect on it in a positive light You are proud that despite the hard times you were able to endure the stress and negative events and obtain the grades that you needed to get into your dream career path Now I need you to think of the bad again Visualize again You are opening up the letter with your final grades Quickly reading through the results you begin to shake You find that you were nowhere near achieving the grades that you needed to get into your dream course or job When your family and friends ask you what grades you had received you mutter it to them in bitter disappointment You feel absolutely ashamed that you were unable achieve your dream grades When you re ect back on this period of time you will mainly see it in a negative light You may mentally beat yourself with regret saying that you did not study to you best That you let procrastination and distractions get the better of you And because of this you had to settle for a course or job that was not your first preference Throughout the rest of your life you will ponder what ifI had studied to the best of my abilities and what would my life be like now if I had obtained the grades needed to get into my dream course or job With the good and bad ending now in your psyche you should write down personally how you would react to both situations and then place them to the 100 reasons why you need to obtain the grades you are aiming for As a result of doing this exercise you will that you will find yourself more motivated to study Another benefit is that you will now sub consciously do everything in your power to ensure that the bad ending does not happen For in the human population there is next to no one who wants to fail and feel regret CHAPTER 2 How To EFFECTIVELY RETAIN LEARNING Learning and implementing the most effective ways to retain learning is paramount to achieving great grades In this chapter we will look at what methods of learning are the most and least effective when it comes to learning retention We will also look at how you should manage your time so that you unnecessary losses in productivity I ll also show you an easy to organize timetable that makes it easy to revise for your assessmentsexams and I will tell you about habits that you should adopt to maXimize your learning retention in the long term THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAYS To RETAIN WHAT YOU STUDY Recently educational studies have revealed the most effective ways to retain what you learn Learning Pyramid After 2 weeks it has been found that the pasture average average etudent quotquotquot quot retenti n I Reading student retams 0n Irate5 39 Audieu isuai average quot39 391 r Demgnstraii n Discussion Unde Practice doing Teach timers Source National Training Lab ratmies Bethei Maine r 10 of what they learn in a lecture Approximately 10 of what they read Approximately 20 of what they watch amp hear Approximately 30 of what they observe Approximately 50 of discussions they actively take part in Approximately 75 of what they practice doing for example questions Approximately 90 of what they teach to others The 4 types of learning shown on the top of the pyramid lectures reading audiovisual amp demonstration are called passive ways of learning They are called this because we only absorb that information into our brains We only observe someone else performing a task and we do not actively engage or participate in these methods of learning The bottom 3 types of learning Discussion Practice doing amp Teaching others are called active ways of learning They fall under this category because when we use these types of learning we must engage and practice the content For example when you are answering a question you have to think about what information you have been taught is relevant to the question and then re organize it in a way that it answers the question in a cohesive and coherent manner This leads to a major problem When you are learning something for the first time you have to almost always learn it passively And looking at the pyramid we can see that these are by far the most inefficient ways of retaining information So the question is how can we effectively retain what we must learn passively at first and store it into our long term memory The answer is to reinforce what you have learnt passively with the most effective active learning techniques as soon as possible It has been found that you retain the most information if you reinforce what you have learnt passively with active learning techniques within a day of learning it From them on you reinforce the content with active learning techniques less and less frequently Once you have passively learnt a topic you should only use passive learning techniques again if you are having trouble remembering the content to the point that you are no longer able to use active learning techniques in that particular topic In the upcoming chapter How to use a chunking timetable I will show an example timetable that I use to organize my reinforced learning It has been designed specifically to make it as easy as possible to organize the reinforcement of previously learnt content If you like the timetable template that I use as my example in this e book please feel free to e mail me at grmatt949 gmailcom and I will send you the template APPLY THE 45 MINUTE WORK 15 MINUTE REST RULE To ensure that you use your time as productively as possible you should strongly consider using the 45 minute work and 15 minute rest rule when you are studying This is because the average person can only focus on a task for a 45 minute period before their mental performance starts to diminish Studying for a longer period than 45 minutes at a time can also lead to unnecessary disadvantages such as increased stress and reduced learning retention rates To avoid these unnecessary burdens during the break it is recommended that you perform some light to moderate exercise eat a healthy snack such as an apple or nuts or enjoy some light reading I highly discourage going on social media sites such as Facebook or playing Video Games during your break This is because we tend to get sidetracked when doing these activities and inadvertently procrastinate After the 15 minute break most individual s mental stamina will have replenished and they can then do another 45 minute chunk of study with high efficiency This also makes it very convenient when creating a study timetable as each hour is one chunk of work This will be covered thoroughly in the next chapter CREATING A CHUNKING TIMETABLE When organizing your studying into these one hour Chunk slots the easiest way to organize the Chunks of study is to categorize them based of a single class For example if you have twelve one hour classes during the week you will have 12 Chunks of study Maths Chunk 139 Elm nk 39Jl39 Chunk l39 Chunk 139 Martha Chunk 239 Elm Mk 239 Chunk 239 Chunk 239 Martha Chunk 339 Elm Mk 339 Chunk 339

can then place them into an hour slot that suits you You should use this hour actively reinforcing the content that you learnt in that chunk class The best way to reinforce what you learnt in class is using the active learning techniques answering questions andor teaching the content to a friend It is highly recommended that you dedicate an hour slot to reinforcing the content you learnt in class on the same day if possible or at the latest the day after so that you retain as much of what you learn as possible That way you will be spending less time re revising subject material in the future About a week or so later you should Saturday again rev1se the chunks of study that you sleep in revised a week prior I suggest that you Breakfast O O O give about 20 25 minutes of rev1s1on for 3 i Hist Ff Chunk 2 each chunk of content so that you ensure that you have retained the maximum Revise Math Ea Htstn Ff Chum 3 amount of subject material The easiest Lunch way to organize this is to reserve 5 6 Law Ehu nk 1 hours on either a Saturday or Sunday Law Chu nk 2 previously reinforced content from the week before While the chunking timetable requires a lot more initial organization than the average timetable it makes revising who subjects before you exams much easier When creating your revision timetable you simply dedicate 10 15 minutes to each one hour chunk of work that you revised throughout the subject The best way to do this is by grouping all of the class tables from each weekly timetable and then chronologically placing 3 or 4 of the same subject into a one hour slot I suggest that you revise the chunks in the same order that you were taught them in class so that you reinforce the most basic information first Using a timetable similar to this on you will be able to better manage your time and retain information very efficiently This will enable you to obtain higher grades and more free time respectively which you can use on hobbies social events and sleep WRITE YOUR NOTES THE OLD FASHIONED WAY In order to retain the most amount of information you should write handwritten notes instead of the much more popular alternative which is to type up the notes on a computer This is because it has been found in recent psychological eXperiments that students who write their notes handwritten performed better in assessments than those who typed there notes up on a computer The authors of the eXperiments believed this was the case because handwritten note takers are forced to pay attention to what is being said and had to process and condense the information being said in real time as they could not write what was being said word for word In this sense handwriting notes under pressure can be considered as an active way of learning as it forces you to re organize and churn out the information into your own words On the other hand typing notes can be considered a passive way of learning This is because as it is much easier to type quickly the students who used computers typed their notes word for word with very little analysis of what was being said In this sense the typing students are using the highly ineffective passive way of learning by only absorbing the information yet no re organizing the information into their own words OPTIONAL STIMULATE YOUR BRAIN WITH THE CLASSICS To further enhance your learning retention rates it has been suggested that you may want to consider listening to classical music either before or during study The classical music in question primarily consists of baroque style music from famous classical composers such as Mozart Bach and Purcell The reason why it has been suggested that you should listen to this genre of music is that It temporarily increases your productiVity and concentration while also lowering stress and anXiety It has also been suggest that non lyrical ambient music can also have similar effects When it comes to the potential benefits that other music may give you it tends to heaVily rely upon the indiViduals music tastes Familiarity of the music is important also as it has been shown that if you are more familiar with the music you can concentrate better on the task you are performing AVOID MULTITASKING WHEN STUDYING Contrary to popular belief it has been found that multitasking overall is harmful to your productivity and mental stamina This is because it has been found that multitasking makes you less efficient as you constantly need to switch between tasks This can greatly hamper your train of thought Multitasking also makes both tasks more complicated as you are dividing your concentration and brain power between separate tasks simultaneously This makes you more prone to stress and learning errors As a result multitasking makes studying much more time consuming and decreases the amount of information that you retain in the long term So what are some ways that you can avoid multitasking The best ways I have found to avoid multitasking is to create a timetable designed so that you only work on one particular subject at a time Also any distractions that could hinder you whilst you are studying should also be removed For example if you find yourself being constantly distracted by your electronic devices you should place them outside of your study area if they are not helping you work If you are negatively affected by noise and people interrupting your study you should find a solitary place to work Recommended solitary places are a strict no noise library or an empty classroom LEARN To SAY No To prevent third parties from affecting your studying it is imperative that you learn to say no when faced with a request that would side track you from studying Whether this be an invitation to hang out with friends or an employer asking you to work overtime it is vital that you refuse them if it will affect your ability to study While it may seem daunting to refuse someone due to peer pressure fear of disappointing other persons and other various reasons you must not lose sight of your long term goals You must NOT allow yourself to lose sight of getting into your dream coursejob in exchange for short term gratification I have found that the best ways to say no is by politely refusing them by saying phrases like sorry I cannot at the moment and then stating the reason For example because I really need to study for my upcoming history tests Then if you want to you can give them the next time you will be free to hang out or work Most individuals will accept and understand your reasoning and will not think less of you However if some of your friends or your boss does tease you or thinks less of you I highly recommend that you do your best to not let them affect you emotionally Stand strong and confidently against those who would see you turn from your long term goals Learn to control your emotions so that no matter what negative in uence comes your way you can push past it with the least amount of difficulty If they continue to get under your skin I highly encourage you to avoid them until you have at least completed your studies CHAPTER 3 How To GET THE MOST OUT OF YOUR CLASSES AND LECTURES Getting the most out of classes and lectures is one of the best ways to get ahead of your peers No matter what educational institution I go to a majority of students do not fully utilize the teacher s knowledge or materials on the subject As a result they receive lower grades as they have to either make up for the learning they forgone in their own time or submit themselves to a lower grade In this chapter I will show you how you can make the most out of your classes amp lectures so that you spend less time studying whilst also receiving a higher overall School grade ASK YOUR TEACHERS FOR EXTRA PRACTICE To obtain the highest grades possible it is vital that you ask your teachers for extra practice work This is because in most cases the teacher will only hand out what heshe believes is the amount of work that the average student can handle And quite often the amount of work the teacher gives out is not enough if you want to completely master the content and in turn ace your exams If you implement most of the study skills within this book you will find that you will easily be able to complete the required work as well as the work you ask from your teachers As practicing questions helps you retain 75 of what you learn after 2 weeks you ll find that you not only remember more of the content but will also be able to answer the questions faster and more confidently As a result your grades will be much better and you will have a much better chance at getting into your dream course or job ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN CLASS DISCUSSIONS If you want to maximize the amount of information you retain in class it is important that you participate in class discussions This includes regularly contributing to the ongoing discussion when the teacher asks a question giving your opinion on certain topics and dilemmas that may arise and politely objecting to others views when appropriate As seen in the learning pyramid refer to chapter 2 the average student remembers on average 50 of what they were taught after 2 weeks when they actively engage in a class discussion However very often students do not take the opportunity to participate and only passively take in what is being said around them Due to this the disengaged students are only going to retain at most 20 of what was taught in the class discussion They then have to try and catch up with the subject content in their own time or surrender themselves to a lower grade By actively participating in class discussions you not only get a head start against your fellow disengaged peers but also save yourself valuable time outside of school as you will be spending less time revising the content from the class discussion later on This free time can be used to study relaX or spend on hobbies and social activities ASK YOUR TEACHERS FOR FEEDBACK ON YOUR PRACTICE WORK To ensure that you answer questions in the most correct and effective manner as possible you MUST ask your teachers for constructive feedback on most of your practice work The main reason for this is that as the teacher is most likely to have written or at least contributed to the exam that you will be assessed on they most often know the best ways that you can improve your current practice work Having constant feedback also prevents you from getting into bad habits which could ultimately lower your grades A common bad habit that is often prevented as a result of teacher feedback is students misinterpreting the question and giving an answer which cannot be give marks as it does not answer the question It is also important that you further enquire on feedback if you don t entirely understand how to fix your errors For example if your teacher says your answers should be more concise ask them to give you a verbal or written example so that you can use it as a guide for your future practice exams CHAPTER 4 How TO BEST PREPARE FOR YOUR ASSESSMENTS amp EXAMS In order to achieve superb grades you must completely adapt to the exam environment and know how to actively use most of the subject content In this chapter I will show how you can achieve both of these pre requisites I will also reveal multiple study exam techniques which will allow you to answer more of the exam which in turn will increase your final grades greatly START PREPARING AS SOON AS POSSIBLE To ensure you re fully prepared and able for your assessments and exams you should start revising as soon as possible The main reason for doing this is so that you greatly reduce the amount of revision that s required of you during the SWOTVACreading week period This in turn reduces the high levels of stress that are felt during this time It also gives you work to do during the earlier weeks of a subject which tend to be light in content As a rule of thumb I generally recommend that you begin exam revision as soon as you have completed the first major module of a subject This typically occurs a third of the way into the subject unit So if your semester is 12 weeks long it is normally possible to start revising near the end of week 4 Revising at such an early period can be difficult as you won t be able to practice actual exams as you have not yet learnt a majority of the content To overcome this I recommend that you gradually handwrite a refined good copy of your notes as you learn it for that subject which covers all the information that you may be tested for in the exam Quite often the subject guide or your teacher will hand you an easy to read summary of what will be tested in the exam If this is the case you can use the summaries as your guide when handwriting your notes This saves you A LOT of time trying to find a nice way to organize your good copy revision notes Another great way to practice for the exams early on is to ask your teachers for standalone exam style questions which only require you to apply your knowledge for the subject content that you have already learnt This way you can efficiently use the active learning technique of practicing doing your subject and get ahead of your peers in retaining and mastering the subject content As many of your peers are most likely to leave their exam revision until the last minute you will most likely receive a far higher grade than most of your cohort MIMIC EXAM CONDITIONS When doing your practice exams I highly suggest that you mimic exam conditions as much as permissible This is because it allows you to adapt to the exam conditions which you will have to endure when taking the official exam As a result you will less stressed as you have become familiar with what is required of you You will also become a lot more efficient in making use of your exam time The most important aspects of your upcoming exams that you should mimic are the time constraints and required stationery For example if the exam has a 10 minute reading time and 2 hours of writing time you take your practice exams under the same time constraints If you are only allowed a blue pen and a ruler then those are the only stationary that you use in your practice exams If you want to be even more comfortable with the exam enVironment I suggest that you ask your teacher if you are allowed to use a room that has a similar setting in which to do you practice exams This will also help reduce exam stress and help you concentrate better when the official exam comes up as it has been proven that we are more relaxed and focused in enVironments we are used to How To USE YOUR READING TIME EFFECTIVELY The exam reading method that I find to be highly effective follows 3 readings of the exam questions On the first reading you read all of the exam questions and subject material at a rather fast pace Don t think too deeply on how to answer the questions but think enough to get a general idea of what the question is asking you to do The second time you read through it a lot slower thinking on how you would answer the question Do not let yourself dwell to long on a question that you do not fully understand though Instead move on to the next question If you have finished the 2 read through with spare reading time begin your 3 read through using the read of you time mentally preparing your answers to the exam questions The reason I use my reading time this way is because whilst we might not notice it we subconsciously try to make sense of what we read As a result you may not understand a question at first but you will more likely figure out how to answer it later on in the exam Also more often than not the other questions you answer will trigger in your mind a way to answer the difficult questions that you did not understand earlier on This could include the content of the question or the subject material that goes along with it As a result you will complete more of the exam and be less stressed from being unable to answer certain questions In turn you will receive a better grade which gets you close to landing your dream course or jobl MAXIMIZE EXAM MARKS USING THIS ORDER To maximize your exam marks I will show you an efficient method that allows you to complete as many questions in an exam as possible In many exams and assessments the examiner creates an exam that they expect the average student will not be able to complete in the allotted time And every now and then will make an exam that they expect no one to finish altogether To accomplish this they make the exam very long and add very complicated questions in the exam that are designed to frustrate students who go through the exam in a chronological order To overcome this obstacle I highly recommend that you use your reading time to separate the exams questions into three categories easy moderate and hard As a rule of thumb the easy questions are ones which you feel confident that you will be able to answer right off the bat The moderate questions require greater thought and planning however you can still answer it confidently in a reasonable amount of time And the difficult questions are those which you have very little idea on how to solve Once you have separated the exam questions into these three categories you methodically answer the easy questions then the moderate questions and only start then start answering the difficult questions This way you minimize the time spent wasted trying to answer the difficult questions and maximize the amount of questions that you would have otherwise answered in the exam You will also be less affected by the stress that being unable to answer a question can bring which causes many students to not answer questions efficiently This in turn will greatly increase your final grades even if you were not able to complete the exam CHAPTER 5 CONCLUSION Congratulations on completing all the modern study skills contained in this book You are now ready to implement all of the modern study skills which will enable you to obtain exceptional marks and in turn make it so much easier for you to get into your dream coursejob However this does not mean your learning has to end here If you wish to further learn many more study skills in an interactive environment please consider enrolling in my Study Skills Course
