If you have a test coming up and want to do your best, this video is for you!
Recently researchers have taken a look at the best ways to study, and it turns out that self-testing is one of the most highly effective study strategies. Self-testing helps you remember more information than simply highlighting, re-reading…and certainly more than cramming the night before!
It takes no training to use this technique; you simply need to test yourself regularly as you learn new material. Below are suggestions for effective self-testing:
- First of all, ensure you have the right attitude. Ask yourself: Why is this course, this topic, this chapter interesting to you? Cultivate curiosity and light a passion for the subject at hand. Think about how you’ll be using this information in your new career. Keep yourself motivated, engaged and on task!
- Think like an instructor. Look over your course outline or syllabus as a whole. Identify the objectives of the course, and then the objective of each section or chapter. This will help you determine what details are important to learn, and what info you can most likely ignore. It’s always a good idea to double-check this with your instructor!
- When you’ve decided what to focus on, perform a memory dump. Write down all you know about the subject. Get it all out on paper. Then, review what you’ve written. What information is missing? What questions or details do you need to research to include to fill in the gaps? Turn these gaps into a test.
- After you are sure that you can’t fill in the gaps, do a little research. Look in your text, lecture notes or look online to fill in these gaps. Then, a few days later take the test again. Can you fill in the gaps?
- Don’t forget to test yourself on the things you knew on day one! If you don’t test yourself frequently on all areas of your course you run the chance of forgetting something important. Always sprinkle in questions about subjects and details that you know well with questions about topics or details you are just learning.
