The Fundamentals Of Studying 🏛

The Fundamentals Of Studying 🏛

The basics of studying, are these simple yet highly effective principles. Here is the blueprint, a map on the fundamentals:

  • Active recall
  • Encoding

You can start studying when the teacher is about to distribute the papers and still get passing grade! (Maybe, it's not proven yet by scientists)

Active Recall 📒

Active Recall 📒

It is used to recall information, like trying to remember the sentences while not looking at it. For example:

  • When memorzing facts, I read it then close my notebook and try to remember the fact.

This is a valuable skill to memorize what you learned! My reccomendation is using it for concepts and facts that need to be memorized first before anything else.

The Test

When you take the test, it's not filled with passive reading. It's filled with questions needing you to recall the information.

Encoding

Encoding

Encoding is the means of inputting information in the long-term memory. There are many techniques in this catergory here is the map of techniques:

  • Distinctiveness
  • Imagery
  • Memory traces

Keep in mind there are many more encoding tricks that exists, I just picked the simplest and effective ones! This principle is really helpful when your tests are long like 3-4 pages (it stores in long memory)

Distinctiveness

Distinctiveness

Highlighting or underlining random texts and remembering them is a form of distinction. Making information stand out, one more eye-catching than the other making it more valuable for the memory. For example:

  • The information and persuasiveness of a book determines it's value.

The word 'book' is bold while 'information' and 'persuasiveness' is underlined. To stand out than the other words.

Imagery 🎨

Imagery 🎨

This technique involves imagining the words, making them visual. Like "tree" we think of a tree. Imagery is so simple but effective, a lot of people read and don't understand because they don't apply this!

  • Imagine the concept in your head, it will store it since it is a visual and easy to remember.

Happy about the techniques? Don't worry there is one more. ✧(。•̀ᴗ-)✧

When you go through your memories, you don't see a variety of words. You see the visuals, mostly an eyes perspective.

Memory Traces ⛳

Memory Traces ⛳

Finally the last technique of encoding is memory traces. This is where you put the information in a variety of memories through your senses, acting, or anything.

For example:

  • I saw the information with my eye, I read aloud for my ear to hear. In the test, I remember hearing and seeing the information.

As you see, you have a bunch of paths to information to not forget some of it!

Did you know that throughout this course I have been using distinctiveness to gather your attention? Yep, I have been using this for my whole account 😺.

Applying these will increase your chances in passing even if you just studied when the teacher is distributing the papers. Anyways me enviz gotta go, bye bye (つㅅ・`)・ᵇʸᵉ 😎
