With many students today participating in extracurricular activities, jobs, clubs, and responsibilities at home, it is common to find an area that is lacking studying. Teachers have identified that poor study skills are often to blame. On the other hand, students have found that many of the textbooks and worksheets forced upon them are either boring or difficult to understand.
Whether it is bad habits or complicated materials that prevent you from studying well, 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for High School Students can help you improve the effectiveness of your studying. After all, effectiveness is not measured by the length of time spent studying, but by the level of comprehension.
In this new book, you will learn how to make a study schedule, how to design an effective study space, how to read for comprehension, how to get organized, how to find your learning style, how to listen better in class, how to use reference sources, how to boost your concentration, and how to stay motivated. You will learn effective note taking strategies, where to study, when to study, time management skills, strategies for reading novels and text books, memorization techniques, and organizational skills.
Additionally, you will find out how to stay awake while studying, how to change your current habits, and how to make studying more enjoyable. We will provide you with various studying methods, including flashcards, quizzes, summarizing, outlining, answering study guide questions, and the proven SQ3R method, as well as exercises to help improve your skills.
Furthermore, 101 Ways to Make Studying Easier and Faster for High School Students is full of tips from students just like you, as well as teachers. No two people learn the same way, and no one study method will work for everyone. While this book introduces you to different study methods, the aim is to improve your learning, your understanding, and, ultimately, your grades.
