Tricks for Memorizing Before the Test

June 26, 2012 General, Online 0 Comments

Studying Before a TestStudying for a big test can be intimidating. You might not know what to study or how to remember everything. Different methods work for everyone, so it is important to try a couple different ideas before settling on a proven method. Find what helps you remember the information the best and gives you the highest test scores.

  • Re-write your notes. If you are still in the age of hand-writing your notes, you can re-write what you scribbled during lecture or type them up to create a study guide. While reading your notes over is helpful, it also helps you to memorize the information if you write out the main points again.
  • Make flashcards. By making flashcards, you can quiz yourself or a friend to see how many correct answers you get. Once you have mastered the answer of a question, pull it out of the pile to focus on the ones you struggle with.
  • Use acronyms. If you have multiple parts of a question to remember the answer for, break it down and abbreviate it using an acronym. As long as you remember your acronym, you will be able to think what each letter represents.
  • Find a study partner or group to meet with. Talking to other classmates can help you to clear up any questions you may have about the material.

The most effective education is the kind that suits your learning style. Consider enrolling in an online degree program if you’re looking for a flexible learning experience.
