Methods of Study

Every student should devote a significant amount of time to their studies. However, most of you find it impossible to finish the given tasks or assignments. So, where can you find the time to study?

There is no magic formula for this, but developing correct study habits can help. This will keep you free from anxiety and give you a feeling of confidence.

I. Study Conditions

Avoid all distractions: Do not let your mind wander or be distracted from what you are doing. To achieve this, select a quiet place.

  • Keep ready all the materials you might require close at hand so that you do not waste time and energy looking for them.
  • Study under proper light, for poor light tires the eyes and you lose concentration.
  • Have proper ventilation, for fresh air keeps the mind alert.

II. Make a plan for the study

  • Keep in mind what you have to study, how much you have to study, and how much time you have
  • Have a balance between leisure and study, and organize a timetable in such a way that you have fun and sufficient time for study
  • Start with interesting easy lessons/topics and then go on to difficult lines, unless they are interconnected
  • Decide when to study and what to study and make a weekly timetable
  • It is better to have short frequent periods for each subject than long hours for one
  • Pay total attention to what you are studying to absorb and understand better
  • Do not study when you are tired, but relax with something light for a short while before coming back to study
  • Do not confuse laziness with tiredness
  • Understand the material you have to learn as a whole
  • Relearn and revise previous lessons frequently, and practice the use of mathematical formulas or grammar rules
  • Do not learn anything by heart, but read the chapter carefully, understand the ideas, and write the essential points
  • Get the most important points and put them down in order, under headings and subheadings, but do not learn notes
  • Set aside some time during the weekend to go over the week’s work, concentrating on points you had not grasped
  • Regularity and concentration are the key words of success.
