Knowing how to study can make a significant difference in students grades. Follow the map and transform how you study!
Inventory your class materials to ensure you have everything needed for studying.

Class Notes
Previous Tests

Contact your instructor or ask a classmate for information regarding anything you are missing.

Meet with an instructor or tutor to discuss any information that you do not understand.
Read over class notes to help you recall what was covered.
Read over highlights or notes in textbooks.
Review all handouts and homework.
Identify what the instructor deemed most important.
Transform the information you identified as important using a memory technique that works with your learning style.

Visit www.vark-learn.com and take a free learning styles assessment. The results will lead you to better understanding your learning style.

The following techniques represent some of the things you can do to help you study.
Make flash cards out of index cards. Divide them into small, logical categories and study one or two categories at a time. Creatively review your flashcards (Hang them on the walls of your home; have a friend or family member show them to you; Keep small stacks in your backpack, purse, or pocket for on the go study.)
Flash Cards
Record yourself as you study or read out loud. Listen to the recordings while driving, cleaning the house, or exercising.
Mnemonic devices
Use acronyms (ROY G. BIV, LASER, or HOMES), acrostics (Please Excuse My Dear Aunt Sally), rhymes and songs to help you remember list or items in order.
Chunk information into logical pieces by putting one topic on a sheet of paper and creating a chart or map of the information you need to know about topic. Please see the "Mapping You Way to Study Success" video for more information.
Give yourself a practice test. Use flashcards, questions from your textbook, quizzes, and homework assignments to help you construct your test.

Look at the information you don't know and think about how you might transform the information in a different way to help you retain the information.
