“Studying is a matter of mind. When you are studying, don’t think about anything else. Concentrate on what you are reading. Seek understanding, form questions and try to answer them. Keep your mind fresh.”

“Before you start reading (or even opening a book), just try to think of what you already know about the topic. You may not know much. But that creates a sense of needing to know. This a stimulus to understand better. Here is an example. “A” and “B”, while sitting in a bus, see an ad about a new brand of television. “A” has been planning to buy a new television set for some days. Who do you think will grasp the ad more intensely? Use the same principle in your studies too.”

“When studying try to think of your notes as a book. Then read your notes pretending you have never seen them before. Try to study in various places around your home, like outside, on a bed, etc. When you are done studying, ask a parent, friend, or sibling to quiz you. You could also call a friend and ask for suggested ways to remember specific terms.”

“Study with a fresh mind, in a quiet atmosphere. Be self driven. Make a mental picture of what you are studying by reflecting slowly for the information to be absorbed by your mind. I think that concentration is intentional. Intend to concentrate and then concentrate. A busy mind is never disturbed.”

“Well, to find a quiet place to sit and study is great advice because it helps you to get away from noises that will distract you from your learning. Studying at the same time each day is a great way for remembring when to study because then you’ll get used to it. “

“Try to do mind mapping of whatever topic you are studying. For example, if the topic is “LITERACY,” circle that topic and make some questions for that topic, i.e., 1.WHAT is literacy? 2.HOW can literacy be built? 3.WHERE does literacy start? 4.WHO is taking steps to increase literacy? 5.WHICH country has the highest literacy rate? “

“It is important to be relaxed and try to study with full concentration. In order to concentrate when you study, you must exercise daily.”
