Have a binder or folder where you keep all of your notes and materials.

 

2. Have a designated study space

This space should have few distractions and be somewhere where you know you will be productive.

 

3. Take frequent short breaks

Studies suggest that a ten-minute break after every hour of study increases productivity. Set a timer or pay close attention to the clock. Don’t short change yourself on study time.

 

4. Prioritize

Take practice tests incrementally to determine which content areas you’re struggling with so you can give those areas the necessary attention.

 

5. Study according to your learning style

6. Pace yourself

Instead of cramming, designate a specific time slot during which you study every day, but no more than three hours.

 

7. Summarize information in your own words/create your own notes

Make outlines, graphic organizers, or write a summary in narrative format to reinforce the highlights of the content you’ve just reviewed.

 

8. Utilize mnemonic devices.

The funnier the sentence the easier it will be to remember. Remember in third grade when you learned the nine planets with: “My very educated mother just served us nine pizzas”? Use terms that are related or fall under the same concept and keep the sentence around 10 words.

 

9. Study in groups

This isn’t a strategy that works for everyone. If you’re easily distracted you may want to stick to individual study sessions. Your time is valuable so pick study partners that you know will work as hard as you will.

 

10. Set goals

There’s no way to stuff everything in your head in one session. Have a goal for each study session with a specific goal. For example, “today I will memorize and understand all of the main components of the digestive system.”
