9 Best  Scientific Study  Tips Studying

smart  pays far  more  than studying  hard.  Learning  scientifically  proven study  tips will  help  you  study  smarter,  instead  of  harder.  Here  they  are:

 1.  Avoid  extra long hours of  studying:  

Small,  short chunks of  study  sessions  are  far better than  studying  at a  stretch  for  long  hours.  This is because  your brain is  better at  encoding information into the  synapses in small, repeated  sessions.

  2.  Stop the all-nighters:  

Reasoning  and memory  may  be  negatively  impacted  for  up to 4 days  after pulling  an  all-nighter.

3.  Use  flash  cards:

  Highlighting  pages in a textbook  doesn’t  really  help.  In  fact, it  might  get you to focus on unimportant information.  Instead,  use  flash  cards, they  help  you focus on tidbits of important information.  They’re  excellent memory  reinforcement  tools.

 4.  Have a  specific goal for  each  study session:  

If  you can’t explain something  simply, then you  don’t  understand  it  well  enough.  Instead of being  general,  you  can  focus on just calculations,  or  learning  how to conjugate  French  verbs,  or  learning  new words,  or  learning how to add and  subtract  mixed  fractions, etc.

 5.  Teach  what you learn:  

You can teach  it  to  yourself or  to  your friends.  When  you study to teach something,  your  brain  organizes  the information  in a more  logical  manner. That helps  you  perform  better  in class  tests. 

  6.  Give yourself  practice  tests:

  This will improve  your confidence  ahead  of  time, knowing how  you  can  perform  even before  the  real test is given.  And if  you perform  poorly  in  your personal test,  you’d  invariably  perform  better in  the class test because  you  already  know what  you  didn’t  know at  first.

7.  Have a  designated  place  of  study: 

Having  a  place  where  all  you need for  your study  is readily  available  helps  you because it  saves  the stress of having  to  exert mental energy, looking  for  a  new  place  to study  every  now and then.

 8.  Don’t  study with music playing: 

This reduces your  concentration level  drastically. Your level of focus is diverted  when  you study  with  rhythmic    background  noise.  Recent study shows that those  who study  without  listening  to  music  playing  fared  much  better  than  those who did.
