Question and answer
Identify one change you can make immediately to increase the effectiveness of your study habits?
1. Behavior modification can work for you. Use the association learning concept. Attempt, as nearly as possible, to study the same subject at the same time in the same place each day. [ You will find that, after a very short while, when you get to that time and place, you are automatically in the subject "groove." Train your brain to think math on a time-place cue, and it will no longer take you 10 minutes a day to get in the math mood. Not only will you save the time and emotional energy you once needed to psych yourself up to do math, or whatever else, it will also help you remember more
of what you are studying. After studying, reinforce yourself by doing something want to do (watch television, go to a party). Experts know that positive reinforcement of a behavior (such as studying) will increase its frequency and duration. 2. Do not study more than an hour at a time without taking a break. In fact, if you are doing straight memorization, do not spend more than 20 to 30 minutes at a time. Here is the rationale behind taking such small bites out of study time. First, when you are under an imposed time restriction, you use the time more efficiently. Have you noticed how much studying you manage to cram into the day before big exams? That is why it is called "cramming." ]
