these questions: Always ask "why?"
Does it make sense?
Is it fact or opinion?
Do you agree? Make connections: how does it fit in with what you Asking questions: Don't be afraid to ask questions; If you need something cleared up ask your teachers will gladly answer them. Write down any important points. Write them in point form. If the teacher writes something on the board its a good idea to write it down too. Concentrating: Try focus on the person who is speaking; with you undivided attention. That way it'll be easier not to get distracted. Using the internet: Be careful when you are using the internet. You don't always know if the information you are reading is true or not. So ask yourself:
Who put up this website?
Is it current?
How good it the information? Using the library: Its a great place to find hard facts of what you need researched. If you need help you can always ask the librarian. General research: Looking in a encyclopedia for a general sense of information. Keep track of where you are get the information. Reading and taking notes: Reading: When you are reading always read section by section but take time between each section to think about what you just read; So you don't forget. Taking notes: the main idea is a brief summary of the introduction and always summarize the conclusion. Remember to jot down key points Remembering: 1. It will really help if you understand what you are trying to remember.
2. After you learned the material give yourself some time to absorb the information.
3.A more efficient way to reading a paragraph is after reading the paragraph quickly summarize out loud.
4. Also try memory tricks: make mental outlines of the main points, make connections, etc... Effective study skills and test preparation Preparing for a test or essay: Basic prep: The first thing you should do is find out what kind of test its going to be and when, then start reviewing. reviewing: Always be organized and keep on schedule. By taking short breaks every once in a while you won't be as exhausted After reviewing: Sleep. A good night's will keep your brain refreshed. Eat. They don't say "breakfast is the for nothing. most important meal of the day" Essays: Start your essay with an outline. Its going to be very difficult if you don't. Rough drafts; easier to edit. The introduction is 1 paragraph the body is usually 3 (one for every point) and conclusion is 1. That's 5 in total. Don't forget to proofread. Specific tests: Math: Ask if you are allowed to bring a calculator and if you have to show your work. Don't leave anything blank and always try to make your work neat enough to be readable. Multiple Choice: Never leave anything blank. If you are stuck on a question you can always make an educated guess. Go with your instincts and more longer, more detailed answers are often correct; if there two answers that are similar, one of them are probably right. Electronic test: Be prepared for anything; bring some paper and pens or pencils for writing stuff down. Find out if you can skip questions and go back to them later. pay attention to what you are typing, clicking, spelling, and your grammar. If the electronic test gets harder and harder each time you answer wrong DON'T PANIC! Matching: Read through the entire list and do the ones that you are sure about first. After that you just need to match everything else. Short answer: Always use full sentences and be as specific as possible. Check how many points the question is worth; that how many details you need. Never leave
anything blank you could get partial credit. Essays: Read the question carefully and make a quick outline with details before you start. Watch you time, double space and make sure your
writing is readable. If you ever run out of time write in point
form. already know? can what you know prove or disprove it? By: Danika Borrel
