Impression post week 5

Throughout the years of me trying to study for an exam, the best ways that I learned to study is to make little songs that go along with what I am trying to learn. Or for an example, if I’m trying to learn like the parts of a cell for science, I might make a song about the different parts of it. So when it comes time to take the actual test I just sing that song when the question that I studied for appears. In addition I have never been someone too study throughout the week, or prepare for the test. I always procrastinate and wait till the last minute. This is one of the main reason why test taking is not one of my strengths in school. Also another way that I study is I make rhymes with the info  that I’m learning. Doing this make it stick in ur head and so that you don’t forget the info when you wake up. In addition to this study method, I also review my notes 30 minutes before I go to bed. The reason that I do this is so that the information that I just studied can run through my brain when I’m asleep. And the day that I have a test, as soon as I wake, up I look at the notes and see how much I actually remembered and quiz my self. As you can see there are many different study methods, many that I did not mention. But everyone has their own special study habit that works best for them.

  1. Simon, I agree with you that making up songs and little rhymes to help you to encode the material and works very well. I often am looking up youtube analogy videos and song videos to help recall the information I am learning. It is interesting how you read material right before you go to bed, does this method work for you? I have never heard of someone doing this but your reasoning makes a lot of sense. I also have a problem with procrastinating and one thing I can suggest for you is splitting up the material 3 or 4 days before the test. Just study little bits here and there that way it isn’t so hard to “cram” the night before. I also sometimes set a timer for 15 minutes, do my work, and then after the timer goes off I give myself 5 minutes to do something else. This method helped me to stay focused for those 15 minutes. Overall, I really agree with your post and your methods of studying.

  2. I’m a fan of your studying strategy with songs and rhymes. I never really thought to do that myself but that might be something I end up trying. Do you put the stuff you’re trying to study to an already existing song or do you make up one of your own? I somewhat do the same thing as you when it comes to studying right before I go to bed. It might just be because of my tendency to procrastinate though. You should probably study more than the night before the test. That’s something I do too much and usually pay for later. My reasoning used to be that I would forget everything if I studied too early but that is not really the case. If you study everything well enough you will still know it for the test. I also like your strategy of reviewing your notes before you go to bed. This is something I try to do before the day of the test. I think it really helps as a way to just run all the information through your head one last time. I also like the feeling of “I have this” that I get after doing that. It’s reassuring. I like your studying habits but I would suggest to try studying before the night of the test.

  3. I like the idea! I not that creative to come up with my own songs though. I sometimes will try to make little rhymes to help me remember but they are only usually 3-4 words tops. I would increase study the study time by a little before bed to just to get more information in. I am also not the best at test taking either and I feel if you rewrite the content thats going to be on the test/exam will help you out! Another tip you should try is to study here and there on the day of the test to get that final note in your brain before the Exam. Overall good techniques and stick to what works for you and try not to procrastinate!
