10 Best Studying Tips for College Students!

Studying!
 

Studying can be so annoying, and that's before you bring in all the possible distractions.  It is so easy to become distracted from studying, mainly because you most likely don't want to study in the first place.

I have gone around and asked my friends (Engineers) what their best studying habits are, and they gave me great ideas. I hope these tips help you get those A+'s I know you deserve!
 
 
  1. Plenty of space to work and spread out.
  2. Quite places help you focus more so go to the library or a coffee shop.
  3. Coffee or caffeine helps you stay aware and awake for those late night studies. 
  4. Taking plenty of breaks can help your brain rest and refuel.
  5. Snacks (study food) so your hunger wont get in the way of studying.
  6. Study partners can be useful even if they don't know what they are doing. Teaching them can help you to.
  7. Calm music (instrumental) is one of my favorites, there are no lyrics to sing so you're fully focused on the work.
  8. Switching locations (not studying in the same place every time) can be a good change.
  9. Exercise, walking around to get the brain juices flowing.
  10. Schedule time to study, don't wait till last minute, or cram it all in one day. Spread it out.

  3. These are great tips. I will say about caffeine and coffee that if you are not careful, it can backfire and mess up with your sleep cycle.

  4. I would definitely have to agree with these ideas. And it kills me to say that because I KNOW they would help but... procrastination and laziness rule supreme. I haven't tried the late-night coffee thing though (mainly because I hate coffee), but who knows? It could be the missing link in my homework relationship...

  11. Reading aloud while writing down the information is helpful too. If you can record yourself reading your notes and listen to them, it helps too. The more methods you can use to mentally process your information, the better it sticks in your head. I taught my students to use multiple methods and flashcards.

  12. I've heard that chewing peppermint gum while studying and then chewing (a different piece) while taking the test helps your brain recall the facts better.

  15. These are really some great tips! I love the one about changing location of your study session. That's an awesome idea. While in college, I was one of routine, but I can see I should have changed it up a little bit.
