Study strategies are intentional methods for improving the efficiency and efficacy of time spent studying. In other words, study strategies help you to study "smarter".
A few examples of study strategies might be:
Taking notes in a particular way:
- Using two or three columns with each column for a different type of information
- Using two colors of pen when taking notes to distinguish between types of info
- taking notes on notecards instead of paper so that your notes can be used as flashcards
Reading with a highlighter.
Writing down questions about things that you don't understand right away.
