Imagine it’s test day. Though you’ve known about it for weeks, it wasn’t until the last two days you really buckled down to study. Despite four hours spent cramming in your room last night, you are suddenly drawing a blank. The panic creeps in as you realize you aren’t ready. What went wrong with your study skills? And how can you brush up on those study skills to make sure this never happens again?
Knowing how to study isn't something that comes naturally to everyone. Even students who tend to do well in school might struggle at memorizing a list of dates or a sequence of equations. The good news is you can build effective study skills over time.
By mindfully working on your study skills and recognizing which techniques work best for you, you can build study habits that will serve you well through high school, college, and beyond.
