3 Tips To Study Better
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

There are few different ways you can study for an exam or test, and although many people find studying tough-going, it's the end result that matters and it's just something we have to put up with. In order to gain and maintain good grades or a good result, you must study hard and show your prowess when it comes to studying for an exam. That way, you not only prove to your teachers and lecturers that you are good enough to get the grades, but you prove it to yourself, too, which ultimately gives you more confidence in your ability.

Pay attention in class by listening first

Your parents probably always told you to listen first and act later. Listening is the best way to study for an exam. If you follow the guidelines, absorb information and search for the answers to your questions, then you need to be a good listener to study for a test. It's said that it takes around five times for someone to learn something through listening, so repetition is also important.

A great way to help your memory when you study for an exam is to record the lecture or class with an audio device. Your mobile phone will probably have this feature or you could invest in a Dictaphone and listen to your lecturers' classes on your way home or to your next class. That way you are ingraining the information in your mind to use when you're studying for an exam.

Always Exaggerate When You Study For an Exam

Making deliberate efforts when you study for an exam is a great way of remembering and understanding your chosen subject. It's similar to runners carrying backpacks full of weights to exaggerate the impact on their legs and make them stronger and work them harder. The same goes for your mind, if you exaggerate your learning then when you study for an exam, the information is easier to recollect and you will most likely do better in the test.

Everyone thinks they try hard during an exam but it's the studying beforehand that is the most important part. The exam is the final test to prove you understand the topic but if the groundwork is not complete before you start the test, then chances are you will not do as well. Even the most prepared attendees to an exam will get nervous but if you're nervous about the subject, then you can combat this by studying harder for the test.

Study For An Exam Then Review Each Lesson

If it takes five attempts at listening to understand a topic then the best thing to do at the end of each lesson or day is to review the work you have done in order to study for an exam. This way you are keeping your brain from shuffling the information to the back of your mind and keep your focus on that new information so it can be digested more easily. Reviewing your course and lesson cements the work in your mind and that means it will be easier to call upon when you study for an exam .
