Studying is hard of course, but you definitely need it to get a nice job. This is why I am going to start with the study communication and information studies at a university in Amsterdam. I have gathered a couple of tips how you can study better. I am also going to use these tips to graduate.
Tips to study better
Studying with a realistic schedule
This is a pitfall I often make. Making a realistic schedule. My next test week is in March, but I have already made a nice schedule to survive this test week.
Making summaries in pieces
I know it, keeping up with your schedule is hard. Still, it is easier to make your summaries in pieces. Imagine, needing to make a suofy from a whole book in a couple of days. You can better spread this over a couple of weeks, so you won’t get bored easily.
Markers are your best friend. Did you know that by marking you can understand the things you need to learn and besides that, you can focus better? I really love to use yellow markers.
Learn with intervals
On my phone, I have an app called BeFocused. A very handy app where you can set in how many intervals you need to finish and when you want to get a break. I am definitely going to use this app when I need to study for my tests. Then I get a notification when I need to take a break or when I need to start again. No procrastination anymore.
