Best Study Methods for Exams
How do you study for exams? If you asked this question to any number of students the popular reply might be cramming. Cramming is a method adopted by many students hoping to absorb or memorize a large volume of subject matter in a short period of time. Frowned upon by educators, the practice is usually employed by students with poor time management skills. Preferring to spend the majority of their time engaged in extracurricular activities, study time is usually relegated to a low place on the priority list. As a result, preparation for tomorrow's exam begins and ends far too close to exam time.
Having well recorded and easy to understand notes is very important, especially when it comes time to study for tests and exams. There are a number of different ways to record information. Experiment with different styles to find what works for you and then be diligent about taking notes when in class, reading for assignments or searching online for information sources. Practice makes perfect and your notes are what you will rely on for information recall when writing essays, answering questions, prepping for class and studying for exams.
