Personal Study Tips 101

Updated on January 7, 2016

Tip #1: Time Management is Key

We are all given the same number of hours a day and so it is likely that the differences between people lies on how productive and efficient we can be given this limited amount of time.

Think carefully about the things you can do and if you can, accomplish them right away. Doing so comes with a lot of perks because you worry less, rest more and have time to attend to emergencies.

So rather than a play now, work later attitude, why not transform it into a work now, play later attitude?

Tip #2: Know Your Learning Style

Different people learn things differently. The method of one may not be applicable to another. So it is important to know your preferred learning style and stick with it - visual, auditory, reading and writing, or kinesthetic for example.

There is no use forcing yourself to study with a style that does not fit you, just like a pen having the cap of a marker - inappropriate. By doing this, you are able to save a lot of time and effort.

Studying hard is not always the right way, you must also consider how to study right.


Tip #3: Eat and Rest Well

Nothing can be done with a grumbling stomach and a sleepless head. By doing so, you are sacrificing the quality of your work, and your ability to absorb important lessons.

Also, studying requires energy for the brain to work, and rest to be able to think clearly. Depriving yourself of food and rest endangers not only your academics but also your health.

Remember, without a healthy body we are not able to live and function fully.

Tip #4: Listen and Ask

Class discussions are essential to learning. Do not take for granted what teachers explain and talk about because they became teachers for a reason and they have gained a lot of knowledge and experience in the field they are teaching. Participate and do not be afraid to be corrected, these are all part of the learning process.

If you do not understand something, do not hesitate to ask your teacher or friend to explain it to you. Do not pretend to know something you do not, this will only hinder your growth. Learn to be open minded.


Be Patient and Use Your Resources Wisely

In the course of learning, there are bound to be topics in which you have difficulty understanding. Be patient and try again. Do not give up. Consult references. In this way you are able to make full use of books, internet, etc. which may help you especially if you prefer studying alone.

Have the persistence and resourcefulness, it comes in handy.

Message to the Reader

Good luck in your endeavors and remember to find your comfortable moments when studying so you'll find it less of a burden and more of a learning experience.
