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.
