Science Study Skills

Laura Said:

Does becoming a psychologist require grreat math and science skills?

We Answered:

I have a degree in Psychology and can tell you this much:

- If you want to be a Psychologist, meaning a Ph.D., then yes you will need mathematical skills - mainly statistics. Your graduate coursework will require a lot of research, hence the statistics.

- You will need to know about anatomy and physiology as well, as you will encounter Neuropsychology and Cognitive Psychology, and they dive heavily into those types of topics. You won't need to know as much as a doctor, but you will learn about the brain, how it works, how hormones work and how they affect the body.

You should know that pursuing a Ph.D degree means a lot of research. If you pursue the PsyD degree (which is still a doctorate), you will have a little more clinical experience. Many times, young students get this notion that becoming a Psychologist just means you are observing children all day behind a 2-way mirror and making "diagnoses" or what not. It is not that fun by any means. I have worked with grad students and it can become very tedious work. And don't expect to be rich either. Psychologists don't necessarily make a lot of money.

So plan for a tough road ahead of you. And one last piece of advice - if you major in Psychology, in order to get a decent career out of it, you HAVE to go further in school, meaning get a Master's or a Ph.D. Having just a Bachelor's in the field is about as good as having just a High School diploma. That is a truth your college counselors will never tell you.

What are some study tips and skills that won't betray me?

We Answered:

One suggestion:

Don't study one subject for more than forty five minutes at a time. Instead, take fifteen minute breaks every hour.

The brain needs time to process and filter information. If our study sessions are too long, we will tend to remember only the highlights or high level generalities, rather than the details which need to be retained for successful test taking.

And, don't mix two or more subjects in one session. Instead, take at least a fifteen minute break before switching to another subject.

Better Studying Skills for Earth Science?

We Answered:

You have to write things out. Get a pack of blank paper and write concepts over and over again. It helps to read the book but you have to write things down too. Remember that studying the night before is really a terrible way to learn. If the test is on Friday you have to study the Sunday before then every day following and that's provided you've kept up with the work. The way we learn best is you look at something, then go away from it, then look at it again, then come back to it, etc. Don't just look at something once and expect to retain all the details about it. It's like a hobby you have. You're good at it because you have done it a lot.

study skills help?

We Answered:

So I don't know about science in particular, but I am a nursing student so I've probably tried every study technique there is. It helps to read and re-write your notes within 24 hours of first taking them, study with a peppermint in your mouth, for some it helps to listen to music while you study, make flashcards, study groups, take breaks...for about every 30 minutes of study time, take a five minute break so your brain can relax. Hope some of these help!
