Study tips – get there with less effort

Homework Elves selected our favourite 5 study tips from “22 science-backed study tips to ace a test” by Shana Lebowitz (http://greatist.com/happiness/better-study-tips-test), and also added on more tips from us:

1. Space it out

Have “bite-sized” bits of information, and review them regularly over a long period of time. You may also want to paste key information on the wall, where you regularly can review them.

2. Move around

By changing your study location, this also helps improve your memory as the brain then forms new associations with the material.

3. Write it out

By re-writing the most important notes, your memory of the topic improves.

4. Take breaks, dance it out

Give your mind breaks in between study hours, and relax with the music.

5. Experiment

Some study better with other students, others need to be alone and silent.  Find out what works best for you and use it!
