In at least one opportunity, we all have faced a pretty difficult exam from the subject that we really consider the most challenging one. In these cases, most of the times we do not know how to study or where to begin, having in the end some results that leave a lot of expectations.
Due to this situation, here I will show you some of the tricks that are used for studying:
- The time: The first and most important of the tricks for studying, in order for us to have a good result, is to dedicate some dairy time for studying during the previous week of the exam. It is recommended to study during this period of time 15 minutes for each day, in order for all of the things to get really known by you.
- Key words: Another useful tool for studying is using key words for the most important chapters of the difficult topics that we do not understand at all. In order for us to understand better these topics, we grab the key word, learn its meaning and then continue on studying.
- Acronyms: This is, in my personal opinion, one of the funniest and easiest tools for studying. Acronyms basically consist in giving for a list of concepts a letter for each concept, joined with the other letters of the concepts, so we form a word that sounds weird or (in the other way) easy to remember, not having to memorize all of the concepts, but only a word for all of them.
- Situations: When we do not understand completely how something works, or how a concept can be applied, we can follow a situation in which this concept or mechanism can be applied, looking for it in Internet, books or by our own imagination, so we can understand better and we can apply the concept as soon as we can.
As we could appreciate, tools and tricks are never missing for studying and having nice opportunities to have excellent grades, but the most important thing, as we can obviously figure out, is that every one of us really gets interested in studying, and that we really put all of our effort in order for us to achieve the grade that we need, or even better, the academic excellence.
