More Study Hacks



Studying can be challenging and time-consuming. Hours and hours spent pouring over pages, articles, videos, and talks to learn and grow your skills and knowledge. Our hopes often rest on us passing the next test for our degree or getting the next certification for our career. There can be a lot of pressure to perform well. Today, I hope to take off some of that pressure. In this blog post, I want to detail some more study hacks to get you started on the right foot and make your learning process a little easier. If you want to check out our first study hacks blog, click HERE! But without further ado, let’s get into some more tips and tricks for studying!



Picking the Right Tools


One of the first steps to studying well is to pick the right tools for the job. This means several different things. First, are you using paper methods, electronic, or a combination of both? Are you studying from a book and taking notes on paper? Or are you reading online articles and writing out notes on Word? Take some time to figure out the best course of action for you. Do you need to take these notes with you on the go? Then writing them down on a Google Doc or the note app Evernote can allow you to access what you’ve written from anywhere! Do you read better with some music playing? Try setting up a playlist of calming and relaxing music that can help get you into the studying zone without distracting you from jamming along or from switching songs. Some great suggestions include classical music like Beethoven or Bach (which several studies have shown improves relaxation and focus.)

You’ll also need to ensure you can keep yourself properly engaged. There is nothing worse than studying material, but you are bored out of your mind. Some creative methods for doing this include using different ways to make the studying more exciting. Examples include:

  • Colour-coded flashcards.
