1. Listen to his course
And yes! As I told you, these tips will not all be fun. Nevertheless, I assure you that they are valid. Why would you listen to her class? Mainly, because by going to class and listening to your teachers see by participating, you’ll do 50% of the work if it’s not anymore. Much of the memorization work is done through listening and participation. So don’t neglect this simple trick, but it can save you a lot of time.
Besides attending your courses, you may also be interested in textbooks, which can help you in your learning. For some people, learning through textbooks and other school books helps to permeate the course better.
So, feel free to snoop around: in the textbooks, the books see even on the Internet if your courses are not enough to learn and memorize.
2.Know your type of memory
Also, knowing the type of memory that works for you will save you a lot of time on your revisions. Indeed, by getting to know his type of memory, you will put in place exercises that will work effectively. It’s like you’re setting up a tailor-made help.
So to give you a small example, there are three main types of memory: visual memory, auditory memory, and kinesthetic memory. Each of us has a specific type of memory, some are rather visual, others auditory and still others that have all the active memories. The lucky ones!
All these types of memory allow you to operate your memory according to certain exercises that you will put in place. Therefore, if you do not yet know your type of memory, I would advise you to handle all the exercises: the sheets and drawings for visual memory, recite aloud or explain to someone for auditory memory and finally, revise by doing something else (sports, cooking, sleeping) for kinesthetic memory.
3.Making Flash Cards
You may like this point. Flashcards, or Memory cards, are bristol cards on which you note, on the front, a specific question about your course and then on the back, the answer. The goal is to train you to memorize your course by asking you about it.
It is a super fun and effective tool because it implies that you must know your course well enough to know what is interesting to question and remember. Moreover, it is a very interesting tool if you decide to ask several questions.
For more information, don’t hesitate to go to Youtube to see what it looks like. There are lots of videos that propose to create this revision tool.
4.Appropriating Your Course
Therefore, I also advise you to appropriate your courses. Indeed, the best way to retain a course is to make it his. The more you take ownership of your courses by reforming them, the easier it will be to retain the content. So, do not hesitate to make review sheets, make diagrams, flashcards and other fun tools that will allow you to memorize without realizing it.
To give you an example, when I study for exams, I take my course and then I rephrase it aloud. I try to explain my course aloud as if I was talking to a person so that I understand the concepts. That way, even though I sometimes look ridiculous, I can assure you that I memorize twice as fast, because I use all my memories.
5.Do not force
Finally, I would advise you not to push too hard. I know that the more days go by, the more stressful it gets, so we tend to want to work whole hours without stopping. However, this is not a solution, you will tire more than anything else.
Thus, space your working time and enjoy relaxing moments between each review. This way, you will save yourself a lot of fatigue, but especially a brain about to explode. So drop out from time to time to enjoy your friends, family and nature.
