Youth Study Habits

One of the most important things to learn as a child is how to study.  Here are a few hints:

  • Yes, yes, it takes time.  You'll find it will take less time, if you are not watching TV or listening to radio.  Go to the quietest place in the house and learn to concentrate.

  • Let's say you have to do math homework.  A rule of thumb is DON'T start doing the assigned problems!  You should read the chapter first.

  • What is the chapter heading?  Headings are important.  The writer of the book is trying to tell you something ... read the chapter and the headings in the chapter.

  • After you understand what the chapter is trying to tell you, read the body of the headings carefully.

  • Only after the above has been done, should you try to do the assignment.

Now this is the most outlandish suggestion yet, but it works.  Here goes!  Review all the chapters before the one you are in now by looking at the chapter headings one after another every day you study?  How can this be possible?  Well, the first week, it is easy.  As the semester advances, you can still do it in 10 minutes.  You can review all the headings, formulas or sidebar information in a book in about 10 minutes.  If you do this each day, you will be an A student.
