Select the best time for learning new information. For most people it's a period of from eight to ten in the morning, and from eight to eleven in the evening. Depending on your mode of the day, peaks of activity can move. After observing yourself, you would find the time to teach you the easiest.
Often students are unable to remember the material, because it is not able to focus on it. In the absence of iron willpower, you'd better find a room where nothing will distract you from the textbook, and ask family members not to disturb you until you're finished. Remove from the desktop fiction books, CDs, Souvenirs – all the things that your brain may find it more interesting than the preparation for the lesson.
Split the material into several parts. It is difficult to "cram" himself over time a huge amount of new information. If you will take small breaks after learning of the individual chapters, it will go much faster.
Arbitrary memorization is divided into: mechanical rote learning and logical understanding of the material. If after reading the chapters you feel that you do not understand, try to explain the information to someone (friend, dog, plush toy). Explaining stuff to an ignorant person, you will choose the most lightweight formulation. All you seemed complicated will become easy to understand.
Identify the "storage time" memorized material. Material, you memorize just to pass the exam, you will be forgotten in a few days. If you realize that this knowledge is needed you in the future, lessons will continue for years to come.
Repetition is the mother of learning. After you memorized all the material, skim it and try again in forty minutes. Then read again the topic the next day. Now you can be sure that this knowledge will stay with you for a long time.
Advice 2 : A large amount of information: how to quickly learn and assimilate
In the process of exam preparation to students and students have to memorize a large amount of information. Sometimes it is so great that it may cause confusion, the man literally does not know "what to grab". To avoid the chaos in the assimilation of information, you need to follow a few rules.
There is a arbitrary and involuntary memory. The information that is emotionally rich and is remembered without effort digested with involuntary memory. If any of you have to remember with the help of a volitional effort, this process occurs through the activation of the arbitrary memory. It is especially difficult given the knowledge that cause irritation and unpleasant emotions. So start with the absorption of personal motivation. Convince yourself that this is really necessary to remember.
Do not attempt to mechanically memorize the material. Soak only the part that you understand. Read and understand the topic. Then the mechanical component of memory is added to a logic that is absorbed reliably.
Typically, the material is presented in a particular system. Start learning from the beginning to understand and learn this system. In case you are in the exam I forget something, will be able to restore or make their own logical conclusion.
In the process of evaluating the quality of mastering of information learn to distinguish remembering from remembering. For example, I looked at the page of a textbook, remembered a section and felt that I knew him. And in the exam were that you remember only the picture and the General appearance of the text.
Attend only at a time when your brain is in a state of maximum activity. For some it's early morning, others are able to assimilate in the evening. Note that the first time the material is stored in very rare cases, need to be repeated at least twice, ideally before bedtime and immediately after it.
At the time of existence of distinguish between short term, long term and medium term memory. The latter is responsible for the breakdown of the material categories and runs during the night. So pay the night rest time. During exam preparation physiological need for sleep increases.
