10 ways to concentrate on studies and learn faster


10 ways to concentrate on studies and learn faster
 ways to concentrate on studies and learn faster

how much time should I spend on  study
If you are a student, then you think that this is not enough. I know ... you have lots of work to do to work, projects to work, and test to study.
In addition, you have other activities and commitments. And I'm sure you also want a social life.
If you can study smart (not hard), get good grades, and lead a balanced life, will not it be good?
Of course, this will happen. That is the reason I composed this article.
The main objective of education is not to get A straight. But learning to learn is an important life skill.
So I spend hours spent on scientific articles and research journals to find the best ways to learn more effectively.


1. Learn the same information in different ways.

Research shows that different media stimulate various parts of the brain. More areas of the brain are active, the more likely you are to understand and maintain the information.

So to learn a specific topic, you can do the following:

  • Read class notes
  • Read textbook
  • Watch a study related  video
  • Look at other online resources
  • Create a Brain Map
  • Teach what you have learned
  • Make Practice Problems from Different Sources

Of course, you will not be able to do all these things in one sitting. But every time you review the subject, use a different resource or method - you will learn faster in this way.



2. Instead of concentrating on one or two topics, study many topics each day.

Studying many topics each day is more effective than comparing deep dive into one or two topics

For example, if you are preparing for examinations in mathematics, history, physics, and chemistry, then it is better to study each subject each day. This approach will help you to focus on math on Monday, focus on history on Tuesday, physics on Wednesday, chemistry on Thursday etc.

Why?

Because if you study the same subject in the same subject then you are likely to confuse the same information.

So to study smart, spread your study time for each topic. In doing this, there will be more time to strengthen your learning in your mind.


3. Review information from time to time rather than cramming.

Periodic review is required if you want to transfer information from your short-term memory to your long-term memory. This will help you get better examination grades.
Since the research shows, periodic review beats down by hand.

The optimal review gap varies, depending on how long you want to retain the information.


4. Sit in front of the class.



If you choose where you sit during the class, take the front seat. Studies show that front-facing students get higher examination scores. The average score of the students, based on class seating

This means that it does not just sit in front of more motivated students, and the less motivated students opt to sit behind.

By sitting on the front, you will be able to see the board and the teacher will be able to listen more clearly, and your concentration will also improve.

Now you know where the best seats are in the class!


5. Don't perform multiple tasks. 


Information is decisive: Multitasking makes you less profitable, more diverted and idiotic.  Studies likewise demonstrate that individuals professing to be great in performing multiple tasks are not by any means superior to the normal individual.
Effective students focus on only one thing at a time. Do not try to study, while interactively answering text messages, watching TV and checking your Twitter feed.

Here are some suggestions for improving your concentration:


  • Turn off notifications on your phone
  • Keep your phone away, or turn it into airplane mode
  • Log out of all instant messaging programs
  • Stop Internet access on your computer
  • Use an app like freedom
  • Close all your internet browser windows that are not related to the work you are working on
  • Clear the disorder from your study area

6. Simplify, summarize and compress information.


Whenever possible, study smart using pneumonic devices. In addition, you can summarize the information in a comparison table, diagram or brain map.  These tools will help you to learn information faster.

7. Take notes by hand rather than using your laptop.

Scientists recommend it, not just because you are more likely to give online maladies when using your laptop. Even when a laptop is used to take notes only, learning is less effective

Why?

Because students who take notes by hand, process and reprint the information. On the contrary, laptops note-takers write that the teacher first says what word-word-words is without processing the word.

In such cases, students who take notes by hand, perform better in testing and examinations.


8 Exercise at least three times a week.

Exercise is good for your body. It is also very good for your brain.

Various studies have shown that the practice ...


  • Improve your memory 
  • Improve your brain function 
  • Reduces the incidence of depression
  • Helps in preventing diseases such as diabetes, cancer, and osteoporosis
  • Increases the quality of your sleep
  • Reduces stress
  • Improve your mood 
  • Exercise is quite a miracle drug!


To do a better study, exercise at least three times a week for 30 to 45 minutes each time. You will be healthy and more energetic, and you will remember the information better

9. Test yourself often.

Decades of research have shown that self-test is important if you want to improve your academic performance.
Just do not read your textbook or your class notes inactive. Study smart by questioning yourself on important concepts and equations. And when you are ready for a trial, practice as much as you can from different sources.


10 Take regular study breaks.

Taking regular study breaks enhances overall productivity and improves focus

This is the reason why it is not good to pierce yourself in your room for up to six hours straight to study for the exam. You feel that you can do a lot like this, but research proves otherwise. So take a break of 5 to 10 minutes for every 40 minutes work.

I recommend using a timer or stopwatch to remind you to take a break and when to come back to study.

During your break, avoid using your phone or computer, because these devices completely prevent your brain from being completely comfortable.
