Studying can be a very challenging. Not only do you have to find the time to study without distractions, but you also have to focus your mind to concentrate on the subject matter (coffee tends to help). Here are some helpful study tips when you are reading a textbook:
First, break the chapter down into an outline in your own words. Then, underline the most important elements.
Show the relationships each of the statements have to each other when arranging your notes.
If there’s a summary in your textbook at the end of a section, read it first, then keep the points that it emphasizes in mind as you read through the section from the beginning.
To reinforce your memory of the new vocabulary words in each chapter, try to incorporate them into your everyday conversations.
