9/26 Studying Techniques Distribute Your Learning Don’t cram It’s unhelpful because it goes in your short-term memory Study a week before because your brain recalls it more easy Elaborate the Material Think about the meaning of the material Make the material relevant to you Understand how concepts are related Study in different environments and at different times Overlearn Rehearse until it is easy Study in different orders (middle, beginning, end of notes) Cost-benefit analysis: how much do I need to do to understand the concept Use Verbal Mnemonics Ex.: “I” before “E” except after “C” Slogans or jingles Mnemonics can be hard to make, but once you learn them, you rarely forget them Use Visual Imagery Creating a mental image may help you remember Flow charts make information easier to remember Concept maps Testing Test yourself before the actual test Get used to the format This helps to know if you really know the material
