The Study Techniques Thread

I figured this thread would be helpful. I put together a list of techniques I wanted to share so obviously feel free to add your own or edit mine.
  • Read chapters before class
  • Re-write lecture notes after class
  • Write concepts or things you learn in paragraph form
  • Make flash cards, group up 3-5 cards, understand them, then move on to the next group of cards. I carry my notecards with me where ever I go so I can flip through them when I have the chance
  • Don't just read the material but understand it
  • Try to overlearn the material but don't go insane, however by the time you did all the things I listed above, its probably overlearned already
  • Review notes everyday-I find this very important. Ever forget the concepts you learned at the beginning of the semester? Probably, that's why everyone hates cumulative finals. Just take about a half hour or whatever to look at your notes everyday, that way you will keep seeing them over and over and will not forget them
I have not used all these techniques yet but I plan to incorporate them this summer and next fall.

Add some stuff guys I know you have some gems to share.

Excuse the blank dot on top.

I normally just learn the material as I go. Then I look at it the day before to make sure Ive still got it all.

Study techniques also change depending on the class. Ive yet to really be able to make flashcards of any of my upper level classes. Theres never vocab

Yeah those I listed will not work for every class, but I think if someone tried a combination of a few of those for different classes then they would be beneficial. My long term memory seems to suck so I have to pound things I learn into my head over and over again to remember them.

My technique:

Pop a couple adderalls the night before the test and cram for the next 10 hours. Seems to do the trick.
