Transcript of Study Skills for Success Review

Tricks and Techniques to Study Effectively
Study Skills
What is your learning style?
Deliberate and careful interaction with the text.

Ask questions of the author.
Debate a point.
Pay a compliment.
Clarify a point made by the author.

This is where you can deepen your understanding of something in the text.
When listening to a lecture, you'll want to write down important points as the instructor is lecturing.

Skip articles (a, an, the)
Use Symbols (&, +, #)
Skip vowels (mprtnt, rmmbr, tst)
Skip lines
Pay attention to how the instructor organizes information
Take highlighting a step further! When you highlight something in the text, write in the margins why you highlighted it. For example, is it an interesting point made by the author? Something you need to remember for a test? Do you have questions? Need to clarify? Define?
After class...
Highlight, in the same color, related ideas in your notes.
Draw arrows, add illustrations, define or clarify terms.
Share your notes with classmates!
If the instructor is lecturing about your text, add page numbers! If s/he is lecturing about a video that you have access to, add minute markers. Add anything to your notes that will connect with other materials from the course!
take appropriate breaks
take the first step!
avoid distractions
use your free time wisely
set aside time for a weekly assessment
