scientific techniques to do that hey this is Chetna and you’re watching
ChetChat one of the largest online career and higher education chat shows
and today we’re talking about how to study smart and not hard and before I
begin telling you those 10 proven scientific techniques press the
subscribe button and the bell icon right next to it and just to remind you that
we have a few good videos for you already on how to make great notes on
good study tips and a perfect timetable and I’m gonna drop links for you in the
description box under the video so you can go back and watch them once you’ve
finished watching these 10 proven scientific techniques on how to study
smart and not hard smart study technique number one is called study in chunks the
Pomodoro Technique says you should study for 25 minutes take a five-minute break
and then repeat this three times over and then take a longer break but 25
minutes may not be your perfect chunk of time so how do you find your attention
span I would take up a book and start reading and the moment I find myself
getting distracted or dozing off I’ll press that timer and bingo that’s my
perfect chunk of time now chances are that when you complete that single chunk
of time which could be 25 minutes for example you haven’t totally finished
that topic of concept and that’s actually a good thing because now the
Zeigarnik effect will come into play which states that the human brain tends
to remember incomplete and unfinished tasks much better than it does
completed tasks so while you take that five-minute break your brain is going to
process that unfinished task or concept and when you get back to it
in the second lot of 25 minutes you’re going to have much more clarity smart
study technique number two is called 20% read 80% recite now sometimes I find
that we read the entire day we go from one subject to the next but we are
either reading from a book or from a laptop and the brain gets so bone tired
that it totally stops paying attention now how about this you read a concept
close your book ask yourself a question and try to answer it without opening
that book back in your own words and related back to a concept perhaps that
you’ve learned some time back and the perfect smart study tip is 20% read 80%
revise and also try to come up with your own examples to understand every
concept and don’t forget to go back and check with your teacher whether your
examples are relevant for that concept smart study scientific tip number 3 is
called spaced repetition now instead of spending the entire day going over one
single topic how about you study one concept and then change the topic and
you come back maybe later or the next day and go over that concept a little
bit and then switch to the next concept so what will happen is that you’ll
repeat that concept over a few days and a few times and that is what we call
spaced repetition now the mind learns the concept better when you go over it
over and over again rather than spending a large amount of time on a single day
trying to attack that concept also varying topics and even subjects helps
the brain sometimes to interlink concepts between topics and subjects and
that’s a great way also to solidify your understanding smart study scientific
tip number four is called notes now one really clever way to save your time
it’s to go over your class notes within minutes of the class getting over and
all you need to do is to just browse over those notes and put whatever is
still stuck in your head and you haven’t been able to write it down put all that
information quickly on the paper so when you go back later on and open those
notes they’ll be complete and this is one
really really special smart study tip that’ll help you save a huge amount of
time smart study scientific technique number five is called study like a
teacher now instead of studying like a student and trying to remember this tons
of information how about you think like a teacher now two things will happen
when you do that one is you’ll begin to anticipate which are the important
questions really from that topic and two of course it has been scientifically
proven that teaching someone helps you learn better and the smart study tip
here is teach test mix teach someone test yourself frequently which means
take a lot of practice tests or mock tests and mix mix means mix up your
subjects mix up your topics and if you don’t find anyone to teach teach your
favorite stuff toys smart study scientific tip number six is called sq3r
and this is a technique that’s gonna help you get the most out of your
textbook so when you pick up the textbook first survey the chapter just
go over browse all the pages in that chapter go right to the question section
Q for questions go over the questions just read them once before you start
reading the chapter and the 3 R’s are read recite and review read and recite
go back to the 20% read 80% recite tip number 2 and review goes back to the
spaced repetition so when you pick up your textbook Browse, go to the questions
come back read shut your book ask yourself a question and recite and then
review over a period of time smart study technique number seven is called
mnemonics now we’ve spoken a lot about mnemonics
in our previous video on scientific techniques to study but today I’m going
to tell you not only to use mnemonics but you can also use coined sayings and
image associations and the smart study tip here is that the weirder the image
the stronger the association let’s talk about coined sayings coined sayings for
example are sohcahtoa remember using that in trigonometry to remember your
sign cos and tan smart study tip number eight is called place now some people
will tell you that you should sit in a fixed place with the table lamp on in
the same place every single time to study but I don’t believe in that some
people work better when they study on a fixed place at a fixed time with the
table lamp on and some people don’t some people like to move around they like to
go to different places they like to have some action when they are learning so
the important thing is when it comes to place is for you to find out what works
best for you and once you figure out what kind of places you like to study in
just stick to that let nobody tell you just stick to only a particular type of
place smart study tip number nine is called time table there is no smarter
tip than planning plan your week plan your day in fact even plan down to
the last hour and you’ll be surprised at how much you can achieve because the
brain is more productive because it knows exactly what it has to do and for
how long we have some great timetables for you in another video and I’m gonna
put the links down so you can go back and take a look at those and smart study
technique number ten is called sleep now some of you will ask me should I study
late in the night or should I study early in the morning and there is no
right answer but the right answer is that sleep is brain food so you need at
least about 7.5 hours of sleep every day and typically 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. is a
great slot so no all-nighters before your exam and remember that if
you have a theory exam the next day it has been scientifically proven that the
earlier you sleep in the night the better you tend to perform so if some of
you feel that you’re wasting time sleeping and instead of hey instead of
sleeping for that one hour can I just study for that extra one hour you’ll
find it to be completely counterproductive so sleep and sleep
well before an exam is my super smart study tip number ten and that’s all for
me from now so press the subscribe button and the bell icon right next to
it and give us a thumbs up if you like our
work and happy watching
