[school] Study Habits, Revised

The NYTimes recently published a good article concerning study habits that I found to be very insightful on the best study habits.  The lowdown:

  • Don’t stick to one study place. Study in lots of different locations, so your brain will have lots of things to associate your studying material with.
  • In a single study period, study multiple items. It’s like when athletes do strength and endurance training in one session.
  • Space out your study sessions. Don’t cram everything into one night.  (This might be the hardest to follow!)

I’m definitely going to be following #2, because goodness knows how many times I only studied for AP Physics and how many times I failed on the tests.
