Few tips to study in college! -

Setting up to study is a big challenge to any college going students.

By the time a child completes schooling, they should inculcate long hours of reading habit and the acumen to comprehend any given text with précis understanding.        

Even students who get good grades in high school can sometimes find themselves struggling when they get to college. So taking the initiative to discover effective study techniques on your own is a wise move.

  • Space out your study times.
  • Choose a study place (or two).
  • Make sure you have only what you need.

Space out your study times: A lot of students end up pulling a marathon study session the night before a big exam, but the evidence shows that last-minute cramming is not the best way to go if you actually want to learn something. It can help you get a decent grade on your exam, but you'll quickly start to forget the material once the exam is over. That's because when we try to stuff a lot of information into our brains very quickly, the information gets stored in short-term rather than long-term memory.

Research has shown that the best way to study is to do several short study sessions spaced out over the span of a few days or even weeks. Spacing out your study sessions forces your brain to retrieve the information and build on it each time, which gives it a more permanent place in your long-term memory. So you study for a college exam by, for example, studying four hours a week for three weeks instead of cramming in one 12-hour session the night before the test.

Choose a study place (or two): Finding a suitable place to work is important. Your dorm is full of distractions and should ideally be a place to rest and relax. Maybe the library, the local coffee shop, a study hall, or a picnic table in the courtyard will work for you.

Some memory experts believe the brain makes unconscious associations between the material it is learning and the background environment at the time of learning. So when you study the same stuff in different places (maybe in a leafy garden one day and in a quiet library another time), you form stronger memories and retain more of the information.

Make sure you have only what you need: Before you begin a study session, gather all your materials so that you won't waste time searching to find the textbook you forgot.

But be selective about the items you really need.

Many college students like to listen to music while they study. Whether music is an effective tool is up for debate. Music can boost productivity and attentiveness for repetitive tasks that require focus, but it can also make it more difficult to concentrate on complex tasks requiring a lot of cognitive processing.
