Achieving good results should be priority number one for any student. Here are ten tips for good academic performance.
1. Not enough to be smart
enough smart people there who just need to study, and others for whom study is not your thing. But you probably have average intelligence and therefore the good results are obtained only with proper motivation to facilitate the effort to study. Without a willingness to study, there is nothing to do … and the reasons have to study are crucial.
2. Find a reason to study
Although there are many other things that are more fun, studying is an urgent duty. In the school years we are risking the future because in this short time we decided what we’re going to be the rest of life.
They must have a reason to study. And that reason is to leave oneself. Rewards and punishments can be effective, but ultimately not decisive.
3. Adopt your own study technique
some people will say, “this guy does not know how to study.” There are ways to learn how, many books, web pages, the help of a teacher, parent. But basically, it’s all common sense. A study is learned studying and everyone will see what are the systems that are better.
4. Feel comfortable and focus
to study efficiently requires a quiet study spot, where everything is at hand, with a comfortable chair and light enough. Do not be fooled, music can not be studied: can draw or copy, but do not memorize or concentrate. Do not get all the time and persevere seated at least 45 minutes. Then rest 5-10 to continue.
5. Hours and planning
should also have a schedule. It need not be rigid, be flexible but normal secondary is to be spent between half an hour and an hour for homework and three quarters or an hour to study. If between Monday and Friday has not devoted 10-12 hours of study, the weekend to retrieve. Let, if possible, for the weekend tasks that take longer: A sheet of drawing, a job for a subject. It is unfortunate that as time goes by you are studying when his head is far away. Do not daydream. Take the time and then you can do many other activities.
6. Harnessing saves time classes
is foolish to waste time in class. Taking advantage of this time, have much in advance. If, for any reason, you can spare time to study later tasks.
teacher may follow the book, then take notes of what he says, of what they insist. If gives notes, and note attentive follow in everything I can, with common sense. Underline repeat what, it is what he considers basic.
7. Memorizing but understanding the content
in most of the subjects have to memorize the content of the lessons. Do not try to learn something that does not understand why it’s so important about the above.
Each person has their own system to fix in memory the lessons: read aloud, go over and try to repeat it several times without looking at the text … the important thing to note is that not an issue if you know can not explain it. And it is very convenient to study every day explained in class. It is better to learn a short text to face a lot of pages on arrival times of evaluations.
8. Tests: Begin with the easiest
“I will study when the exam” … This is a huge mistake. If you study each day, when the time of the test only needs to review knowledge already acquired, remember what you already know. If you leave everything to the end, you end up with a head full of formulas, definitions, dates, etc.. chaos.
Exams are of different types, each one must be prepared differently. Auto examined delivers results.
Sleep well the night before the test and do not ever take any pills – will pay dearly -. This helps avoid nervousness and fatigue. Read the questions before going to respond. If possible, answer the easiest questions first and let the end which is not well known. This is especially important in problems in mathematics, physics, translations … Many times you spend all the time that is available to make the problem and leave the rest blank.
Before you turn your test carefully review the answers. Do not rush to deliver: use all the time available.
9. Helps troubleshoot
Although difficult to give a common rule, in mathematics, physics and chemistry tests include many problems: from data has to find other, using a formula or more.
Firstly choose the right formula, then replace the variables by the values ??given (units!) and you will be one or more unknowns to clear. Use extreme caution: it is very likely to ask the exact results, and not simply the solution is well posed.
10. And the most important
point of the book There is a road, which states that “A study hour is an hour of prayer”: this book has many, an entire chapter devoted to the supernatural aspect of the study. I could really use careful consideration. Give God your work.
