The Art of Studying – Tips and Resources

It seems like not so long ago when I was studying in high school and college.  Clearly though it was much farther away in time than my memory chooses to think it is since I have three kids beyond college now, one in high school and one in middle school.  Their reality seems like my yesterday.  With that said, I do try to instill some basic tips in my childrens’ studying routines to help guide them through their studies more easily and with less stress.

Studying Tips

  • Write it down – whether through flash cards or some other method.  Writing it down adds a visual aid to your studying.  We all learn differently and trying to use all methods helps tremendously to not miss any opportunities.  If you are writing it in notepads – write it, read it, read it, read it…
  • Create a song – nowadays (and yes, even when I was in school), you’d be hard pressed to find a student studying without doing something else at the same time.  Create a song to your favorite tune with the important facts.  It definitely does work.  Have fun with it.
  • Create a highlighting system – as you are sure you learn more and more, focus on what you have not learned yet.
  • Take a break, get plenty of rest, and remember to eat properly and stay hydrated.

    When I was in school, I always found the best way to study was to just re-write my notes over and over again. I never crammed because you’re brain can only absorb 20 minutes of new information at a time, so basically, you’re not remembering anything else after 20 minutes. I would study for 20, rest for 30, study for 20. worked like a charm.

    The “big infrastructure” era is a true portrayal of the current era. Countries all over the world are vigorously developing infrastructure construction. Because of this, many students have also chosen engineering majors. Engineering works are written https: //www.academicsaviour.com/engineering-assignment-dai-xie has also provided help to many students. Today, let’s take a look at the comprehensive disciplines involved in engineering.
    Because the engineering major involves a wide range of subjects, many other subjects’ knowledge is also required for engineering students to understand and master, including: mathematics, structural mechanics, materials science, etc., engineering majors focus on the combination of theory and practice, and These disciplines have also promoted the continuous development and progress of the engineering profession. In addition, most engineering students will also learn some management knowledge to facilitate better management of the project construction they participate in in the future, thereby improving the overall management level of the project. “
