40 Study Tips, Tricks & Hacks // Part. 1 REMAKE

Hello everyone! Today’s video is very special because it
is a remake of one of my oldest videos on YouTube and thousands of your guys voted for
me to redo it from scratch. Since I still swear by these tips, most of
the voiceover will be recorded in the same way but the approach I give to these will
be a bit different. 1. Incorporate homework and classes in you daily
planner – that will give you an overall glimpse of how your week will be about and
how much time you need to spend in your studying sessions! 2. Color coordinate classes – be it notes,
your planner, your textbooks or binders, pick a unique color for each class and work around
the hues of that color to get more organized! 3. Make your own syllabus – if your professor
doesn’t provide a syllabus for your class, try to make one before the school year working
around your given textbooks or other given material. 4. Make study guides – make a study guide from
your syllabus and draw before each topic two boxes: one for a midtest and one for the final
test. When you have one of these tests, check the
boxes when you’ve finished studying the chapter so you won’t miss anything! 5. Reference your material throughout – most
of the times, we students work with in-class notes, textbooks and a syllabus. Since we get small bits of information here
and there it’s important to reference every page throughout all your material so you can
quickly access your information without having to flip endlessly through pages! 6. Keep a dashboard nearby – Whenever you use
a notebook or a binder, make a dashboard on the first page with post it notes so you can
quickly scribble any questions, homework or page numbers. When you get home, you just need to open your
dashboard and attend those notes. 7. Print any tests, exercises and exams you can
find – keep those in the end of your binder. These are perfect to practice before exams
and tests because they really reflect what you will be tested about. Set an alarm clock for the deadline and start
working on those! 8. Condense – organization disappears when
you have too many of everything. Working with more than one planner in your
life will make everything chaotic. If you think you need a second planner because
you don’t have enough space to write in the first one, it’s because you don’t
have available time as well. Don’t fool yourself and set achievable goals! 9. Customize your textbooks – most of the times,
textbooks are formal books where information is hard to come by. Make your own tabs and write every chapter
on them so they stick out – flag any charts, tables or graphics. Everything needs to be incredibly accessible! 10 Print a special planning sheet before finals:
Organizing your studying by chapters and/or topics before finals is tremendously important
since it lets you organize the amount of time you dedicate to each subject,
Study Sessions and Time Management 11. Save at least one afternoon or one morning
a week for intensive studying. These is your “life-saver” – when you
get so full of homework and projects that you can’t incorporate them into your daily
academic routine, one free afternoon to organize your school life will really come in handy! Make an appointment with yourself! 12. Prepare in advance – although most professors
may not ask you to prepare a class in advance, if you have the means to, go ahead. Grab a sheet and make a summary of the chapter
your class will be about. Write the major topics and key information
and take that guide to class. When your professor repeats previously studied
information, you will be able to understand everything much better! 13. Never leave something behind – Even if you
have a more light class, where professors don’t request homework or any side projects,
don’t let that fool you! Be disciplined and be your own professors! Make your own projects and learn everything
you can so you can nail those finals when they arrive. 14. Write your questions – most of the time,
in a heavy study session, we come up with tons of questions and sometimes we just leave
them behind. Write them down in your dashboard or a small
notebook and ask your professors (personally or via e-mail). You can also ask your schoolmates in a facebook
group created for that purpose! 15. Set an alarm clock and reward yourself – even
if you study during an entire afternoon your studying will be pointless if you don’t
take regular breaks. Set an alarm clock for one hour/one hour and
a half and then take a 15 minute break. Never study for more than 2 hours straight! Even if you don’t notice, you’ll get less
and less focused. 16. . Make a list – before each study session
I like to grab my notepad and write down everything that I need to do before my session ends:
the chapters I need to read, the pages I need to go through and the homework I need to complete. Sometimes I even write theses lists when I’m
in college so I’ll have more determination to complete those tasks once I get home. 17 Work on the least interesting thing first. There are always classes or projects that
we like the least – and those are the ones that we need to tackle first. You will start your studying session concentrated,
which will let you go through the worst tasks faster. 18 Print, print, print. try to print everything you can and never
study from your computer. Having your PDF files printed at hand will
let you concentrate better, highlight and write some notes
in the margins. You can take these everywhere with you and
even turn them into small guides for future classes! 19. If you finish ahead, don’t quit. Perhaps the time you’ve saved for your study
session has come to an end way before you have planned. That doesn’t mean you should stop right
now – Take that time to review what you’ve learned so far or prepare other classes ahead
of time! 20. Study in an organized space – make your
own studying corner – bring everything you will need, from textbooks, binders and notebooks,
to a cup of coffee and your computer. Keep them neatily organized on your desk so
everything is at hand and on sight. Put on some soft background music (links down
below) and adjust the lightning.

    The voice over gave me deja vu. I've been following you since you're very first video and you've definitely changed a lot, in terms of how you make your videos of course. I really like your newer videos as I find them more aesthetically pleasing and a bit relax. Your old ones, especially the first few, were a bit upbeat. Despite that, no matter how you make your contents, I'll always be ready for the notification. Keep up the great work, Mariana!

    Mariana, thank you for video. It's awesome 🙂
    I've write down these tips. Maybe it'll be useful for someone
    1. Incorporate your h/w and classes in your daily planner.
    2. Color coordinate classes.
    3. Make your own syllabus.
    4. Make student guides. Make a study guide from your syllabus and draw before each topic two boxes% one for a midgets and one for the final test. When you have one of these tests/ check the boxes when you’ve finished studying the chapter so you won’t miss anything.
    5. Reference your material throughout – for quick access.
    6. Keep a dashboard near by (with stickers).
    7. Print or collect any exercises you can find. Set an alarm clock for the deadline and start working on those tests.
    8. Remember to condense – organisation disappears when you have too many of everything.
    9. Customise textbooks – make your own tabs and write every chapter on them so they stick out.
    10. Print a planning calendar for finals.
    11. Save at least one morning / evening for intensive studying.
    12. Prepare in advance.
    13. Never leave something behind (!)
    14. Write your own questions – ask professors, classmates.
    15. Set an alarm clock. Reward yourself + take breaks. Never study for 2 hours straight.
    16. Before each study sessions make a to-do list.
    17. Work on the least interesting thing first.
    18. Print. Understand where you work better – on the laptop or on the paper.
    19. If you finish ahead, don’t quit. Take that time to review what you’ve learned so far or prepare other classes ahead of time.
    20. Study in an organised place.

  74. Greisly Tjengal

    January 1, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    most of these will works very well if you're a student in school. sadly, i just get into uni 4 months ago in IR major and everything is really chaotic.

    before, i still manage to make my own notes before classes because i have notebook and syllabus, but now in university, i do have syllabus but i have no textbook whatsoever and even if i have the syllabus, most of my class are jumbled because sometimes my class is dismissed or converted into events. most of my exams are making paper over study cases, so making notes to remember is the last thing to do and the most important thing is just i need to understand how this theory talks about.

    however, i still loves making notes since i've enjoyed reading and writing for my whole life, so i still writes note, and luckily i have a class where i can do it : french. learning language needs to be written no matter what so i really enjoy the class where my friends wouldn't think i'm weird by opening a notebook and have a giant pencil box with 5 coloured pens, multiple highlighters and a package of pastel coloured sticky notes scattered on my table.

    most of these tricks works if you are still in school, so guys who still struggle with it, have fun with the tricks!☺☺
