Children Study Habits How Can I Get Better Grades

Effective Study Habits For College Students

Children Study HabitsOnce you enroll in college and begin to take classes you may be in for a rude awakening. Those study habits that worked in high school are definitely not going to work in college. I have heard tales of students getting excellent grades in high school but the same level of success does not necessarily transfer over to college. That's why it's a good idea to implement some different tips and techniques to ensure your success.

Some of the study habits I have observed that work is to study immediately after your class is over. You should wait no longer than one to three hours after your class is over to start studying. The information is still very much fresh in your mind and you are more likely to recall more things even if you did not write them down. It's been documented that students receiving a 4.0 out of 4.0 grade point average followed this practice religiously. There is probably a need to want to play a game, or go to the gym or watch TV or socialize right after class. Don't do it. Study right after class because you can always do those other things later.

Another practice is to read a chapter first very quickly not trying to absorb all the information, just skimming some important facts. Then go back and read the chapter again this time a little more in depth and taking notes or high lighting certain key points.

Later you may want to come back and jot down those same important key points on index cards and study those cards.

Also another good policy is to make up your own test and take it. This will put you into another dimension of studying. Also if you can emulate the study environment in which you will be taking the test is another good procedure. Once you enter that environment, in which you will actually be taking the test, it won't be foreign to you. You may ask a friend in the same class to prepare a test for you and try to stump you with the questions.

You will probably not be able to utilize all of these avenues for studying but you will want to experiment and see which ones work best for you and which ones you are comfortable with.

One more technique is to study the same time at the same place every time you study. This puts you in the habit of studying and helps you get comfortable with the idea of studying. If you go to different locations sometimes it takes awhile to adjust to a new location and you have to get used to your new environment which could prove to be a distraction.
