Test in your AP Class tomorrow and freaking out cause you don't feel confident in what you know? If your feeling this or have felt this you're not alone. Thousands of students (including me) have had this feeling and I am happy to say that I have a solution to conquer it. Breathing and Napping. You think I am joking but I am, in fact, dead serious. So let me explain how doing these two things will not only reduce your stress for that daunting test but also help you retain concepts for a longer time, allowing you to ACE any test that comes your way.
It's time for the fifth tip of the series! In this tip, we go in depth of memorization, and teach you how to reinforce your memory of academic material.
Let's be real. Often times, diagram memorization is tested. Sometimes it's the process of the Kreb's cycle, other times it's the labeling of photosynthesis patterns. Many students go straight to the diagram and attempt to simply memorize the picture in their mind. However, this requires way more time to reach the same level of memorization as our tip today.
Hey guys! It's time for the fourth tip in our series, How to: study". In this post, we'll be discussing a testing tip.
I often get asked, how do you do so well on English multiple choice questions? How did you ace that PSAT reading section, or that AP English reading section? Well, in this post I'll discuss how to take a reading multiple choice test, from personal strategies to those from studies.
Hey guys! We are back with another blog post, this time with a tip as promised yesterday for when you don't understand a question in your physics, math, and chemistry books.
We talked yesterday about the detriments of peeking into the Internet for answers. You might be saying, where else could the answers be? They aren't in the back of the book.
Welcome! It’s time for the second study tip of the blog, a focus tip.
Phones. The savior of mankind, a must have for all teenagers. We chat, learn, and practice with our phones, at a moment's notice. But people misconstrue when phones are actually important and when they are not. Phones can help in certain instances, like finding synonyms for essays or discovering math answers, but they also make us dependent on its usefulness, and even distract us with its alluring apps like Snapchat, Instagram, and news. In this post, we will discuss the positives and negatives of having a phone nearby in an academic environment, and explain why removing the cell phone is a great way to improve your scores.
In our first blog post, we will discuss how to memorize lengthy material faster, and better.
It's a common misconception that the path to success is just to read notes over and over. And over. Rather, the true way to memorize a lot of material is to truly understand what you are reading. Yes, it is called memorizing, but memorizing is not just attempting to place everything in your memory. The only that will happen as a result is that during times of great need (i.e. a test), that information disappears from your mind.
Tick. Tock. Anddddd, it's already 2:00am, and you are still studying economics for the big test tomorrow. But does it really have to be this way?
NO. NO. NO.
Rather than spend hours pouring over your notes, a few minutes can be just as useful. Because it's not about how LONG you study, but rather, HOW you study.
(But don't forget, studying longer will always be better than no studying at all)
In this blog by ZoMu, we will discuss the dos and don'ts of studying, with 101 tips for studying. Everyday for 101 days, we will release another study tip, and discuss why it will help with your academics. We will also talk about bad studying habits, and how to improve them.
We hope you will learn a lot, and improve your academics!
