Spacing

Testing Effect

Transfer-Appropriate Processing

Transfer-Appropriate Processing

There’s a hierarchy of what kinds of study materials will be useful to you in preparing for your exam:

  1. The most valuable are mock tests and exams which are intended to be identical in style and form to the test you’re actually going to take.
  2. Next are problems , given in assignments, textbook questions.
  3. Finally, self-generated questions or written notes based on the material.

This hierarchy of practice is known as transfer-appropriate processing. This basically means that the more your practice resembles the exam, the more your practice efforts will transfer into actual results.

Beat Anxiety By Stimulating

Beat Anxiety By Stimulating

Anxiety is another hurdle for your studying ability. It’s both harder to concentrate and the stress makes it harder to remember things, even if you could.

The solution is to make at least some of your studying sessions a full-blown simulation of the exam.

The benefits of these stimulations are:

  • You increase your temporary anxiety while studying, which makes it easier to recall the information in stress conditions.
  • By exposing yourself to the exam situation you’ll be less anxious when the eventual test comes.
  • You’ll actually know what your performance is likely to be on the test!
