DID YOU KNOW THAT…

  • Testing yourself or practicing is much more effective for remembering information compared to repeatedly reading your notes.
  • Repeated studying influences a student to become overconfident and to falsely believe that they know more than they actually do
  • Using self-reference (information that is related to you) can help improve long-term memory
  • The Action Observation Effect states that memory is better for observed actions than for verbal statements (visual imagery).

 

Practicing with friends is a great way to study. Although, we do not recommend procrastinating, we hope these strategies help you do well!  Testing/practicing allows for better retention and it helps keep the information in your memory for longer.
