Strategies To Study

Debra Said:

What study strategies do you use that you would recommend to your classmates?

We Answered:

I follow the power points, Evolve questions on line, Professor's lecture notes for Prof. Burger on her web site and available to all. I write notes and read. My best advice is to follow the study habits you used to get here. Trying something new can be detrimental....I went back to my old method with better results.

Alberto Said:

What are good study strategies for me to follow?

We Answered:

you should daily give some few minutes after your semester classes for revision as what have you done in classes if u regularly do it it will work out for you and also on Sunday you should give a hour for revising what you have done in the past week. and this will surely help you out...

What are the best study strategies for passing Series 7 exam within 1 month?

We Answered:

nowadays the exam prep is computerized.
jump right-away to the questions and read / research the questions you have no clue about as you go.
there is too much to know to simply read first.
answering the questions first will assure you learn/study the main topics you need for the exam.
I used this method cause i did most of my studying the night before and just passed about 72%.
my boss didn't let me take off the day before to study

Melissa Said:

What are some study strategies for a student whose first language is not English?

We Answered:

Seems as if they need to LEARN ENGLISH, conversational English, or even bare-bones English - as since they can't memorize simple dates and terms, it suggests they don't have a good enough grasp of the language to be wasting the university/college system's (or your) time.

Joy Said:

What are some effective strategies to study Organic Chemistry?

We Answered:

Organic chemistry is mostly about functional group chemistry, if you can understand or remender how certain groups react in the present of regents your half way there. The next problem applying that chemistry to problems. Ie what happens if you add this to this or how do I make this, or why does etc etc.

A good book is

Designing Organic syntheses: A programmed introduction to the synthon approach by Stuart Warren. A good book if you want to learn mechanisms and how to make such n such a molecule plus it has lots of problems and with answers in the back. I would rent it from your libary to see if you like it first.

What are some good study strategies to prepare for an exam?

We Answered:

The two previous answers are good, but my suggestion is that you must read, read, and read again, especially the theory part until you can understand and memorize concepts and definitions.
The problem solving part, you cannot memorize, but you will apply what you know from theory. Also you can go back and solve again all the problems you have solved during the semestre.

Good luck.

Kim Said:

Anyone have any test-taking tips or study strategies for middle schoolers?

We Answered:

Psychology tells us that the human brain struggles to retrieve information that is stored under one mood, unless that mood is repeated. This is the crux of "test anxiety." I get nervous about the test, then can't seem to remember anything, that makes me more nervous, and the ball is rolling.

I teach my students this method that I learned several years ago in the Naval Nuclear Power School. This method is BEHC. I still use this method today.

The initials stand for Breath, Easy, Hard, Check.

The steps are simple and the psychology is sound.

1) Write BEHC on the top of the test.

2) Breath--Close your eyes and take 10 slow and easy breaths. This will clam the heart rate and help the student relax.

3) Find and do the easy questions--performing these will build the confidence and make the harder questions seem easier.

4) Tackle the harder questions-Now that the student BELIEVES that they can do this.

5) If time allows, check for errors-But don't change an answer unless you are certain that it is wrong.

Discuss It!
