Study Strategies

Mar 22, 2019

Everyone has different studying strategies. One of the most important things to discover while in school is what your learning style is. Are you a visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learner? There is nothing wrong with any of those learning styles, all of them are good, but what makes them most effective is how you use them to study for exams. One of the strategies you could add on to your learning style is having a well-organized schedule on which you write all the stuff that is due next week and how you are going to be studying for it. Remember, it is not about prioritizing your schedule, but scheduling your priorities. 

One of the most effective study strategies that has been very underrated by most students is sleep. Good sleep is very important for your body to function properly. When you are sleep-deprived you cannot focus in class, and it affects your memory. It also weakens your immune system, which makes you more susceptible to diseases. Therefore, a good sleep is highly recommended because it is one of the best things you can do for your health. 

Another good strategy is to rewrite your notes. Research shows that rewriting your notes after class is directly proportional to doing well in that class. Going to class regularly and rewriting your notes increases your understanding of the concepts studied in class that day, and makes you feel more prepared for the next class. Group studying is highly encouraged at King's because not only does it help you study by sharing each other's notes to see if you missed something, but it also develops healthy relationships that increase your sense of belonging and builds community.

Good luck studying,
