On this page you will find some tips that may help you to better study the subjects, to organize time and get better performance. They are the result of my experience and above all of the work of psychologists and educationalists who have studied the issue.
Of course, what a person will either does not have why get you well to another, so I recommend a critical reading of these tips: anything that suits your style, concerns, abilities, etc. add it to your study habits, and what not, then simply ignore it.
How to study effectively
What follows is a method of study, the so-called Cornell methoddeveloped by Dr. Walter Paulk. Why a method of study if study is relatively easy, is only a matter of effort?, keep reading, the answer lies in the following steps.
It is possible that you think as you understand everything that is said in class, so you'll remember later. This is absolutely wrong. In class, you understand transparency because in addition to the information written on it, accounts with more data to the teacher communicates by voice. Therefore, the only way to remember it later is taking notes.
In addition, taking notes has added advantages:
Helps to maintain the attention that if he is not attending can not take notes. This makes the class session much more productive.
It allows to know what is important for the slides.
Facilitates the study, that the personal notes in the style of each, are easier to remember that the text of the slides.
It helps to remember. Write class notes makes it that much better remember the contents of the class as if only you had been listening.
The Cornell method
First step: prepare the necessary material
To take notes best is to use a sheet large role with enough room to comfortably distributing the notes. Size A4 (21 cm x 29.7 cm) is ideal (although it may be in leaf letter or notebook)
On the road draws a horizontal line to 5 cm from bottom edge and the upper half is divided into two elsewhere by a vertical line drawn at 6 cm from the left edge.
Notes are written in the area on the right, while in the area of the left, type any word or idea key for each paragraph. The lower area is reserved for a summary of the page and note the doubts that may arise to look at that page. If you have annotated the doubts be forgotten nothing to ask the teacher or classmates.
Second step: during class
I know ordenad @: put date pages and numbered them.
Taking your own notes. It is always preferable that you will be more easy to remember the contents if you've scored them with your own style, language, etc. that if read the notes from another roommate @.
Write legibly. Don't try to make use of every square inch of paper. Leave blank lines between each two different ideas to separalas. Also leave blank spaces to complete later, for example: to hear the summary at the end of the class or the summary at the beginning of the next. To complete the class notes with other materials such as books, information, internet, etc.
It uses abbreviations, but be consistent. Have a system of punctuation and abbreviations that make sense for you and uses always the same. When you doctor ideas developed through road points, numbering them and used bleeding that they distinguish between well.
Use your own words, but tries to preserve the meaning of sentences. Of course that there are things that should write down exactly as: formulas, definitions, and specific facts.
What should you write for?
Take some good notes is not writing point by point all tell the teacher in class. To take good notes you need to know to discern what really matters and record so accurate. The teacher during his explanation usually gives clues about what's important. We consider that something said by Professor is important if:
It is part of the summary of the class prior to the start of class.
It is part of the summary of what was explained at the end of the class.
It is written on the Blackboard.
He repeated several times.
It is emphasized through tone of voice and gestures.
Is preceded by phrases like: "in conclusion...", "must be borne in mind that...", "must not forget that...", "this is important because...", etc.
Third step: after class
Given that most of the information is immediately forgotten after the class, it attempts to "consolidate" your notes as soon as possible. The ideal is to do right after class.
Enter words or key ideas of each paragraph as soon as possible when you still remember the development of the class. These keywords are very important because they act as triggers for your memory during the study of the notes.
It rescans the entire class to have a complete picture of the structure of the ideas contained therein. During this process try to formulate questions whose answer are the notes that you are reviewing.
If during this process you discover that you don't understand something says what it is and which is the question. Do it the more accurately you can. Unless you ask the questions immediately with your teacher, most likely is that when you consult with him and not remember all the details of your question.
Fourth step: during the study
It follows a process that could be summed up as the six a:
Registra. The notes column, recorded so many facts and meaningful ideas as you can. Use telegraphic sentences, but make sure that you can rebuild the entire meaning later. Write legibly.
Resume. After class, it summarizes your notes by writing in the remarks column key words and short phrases. Summarizing clarifies meanings reveals relationships, establishing continuity and consolidates the memorization.
Recita class leaving visible keywords area and cover with a paper notes area. He recites using your own words the facts and concrete ideas that come to your memory to read the key word that acts as a trigger. Then check the answer. Correct you if necessary and repeat the process until you can remember information.
Razona (once learned the class) on the notes you've taken. Reasoning consists in establish connections between the content of the class and the content of other classesother subjects or your own personal experiences. Keep in mind that reviews are rare type questions: write everything you know about the topic X. Are frequently asked questions of the type similarities and differences between A and B, or what implications is C. To answer these questions not simply recite the notes and learn them, you must be thinking about them.
To reason about some class notes it might be useful to ask the following questions among others: How can this apply?, What is it like?, What new issues arise from this?, What principles already learned are here?, etc. The result of this reasoning is used to complete the notes using blank gaps left earlier.
Recapitula your notes to write a summary at the bottom of each page. This summary allows you to review the classes very quickly. In addition to the summary of each page you can write a summary of the whole topic at the end of the notes of this theme. This last summary has the advantage that you used to review the structure of the subject in a simple way.
Repasa your notes from time to time. Once studied a topic so you know, but as time passes you tend to forget. Review it from time to time helps to set knowledge permanently.
Recommendations with regard to the method
This method is highly effective but should be done properly. There are certain things that should not be ever made:
Take notes in any way to move them to clean later. This is not a good idea. In the best case is a waste of time because we have to spend double effort: on the one hand the effort of taking notes in class, and on the other hand the pass to clean. The best thing is to take them well organized directly in class. So all the time after class will be available for other stages of the method.
Do all this work just at the end during the period of examinations. During this period all you should do is review the summaries of the notes, because all Studio work has been previously. If the study has been doing over the course the result is much better because it gives rise to a lifelong acquisition of knowledge. If it is in a very short period of time, the knowledge forget very easily.
That is all. I hope to be able to explain clearly what is the method and to help you study more efficiently. Remember that the important thing is to learn the subjects and not only approve them, because in this way you will have much more easy to find a good job, that is ultimately what you're studying.
