I want to start a new studyblr trend.
Sometimes when I’m giving advice about specific classes I have taken, I think to myself, “Ugh, I wish I had someone to warn me about this before I took this so I would have been better prepared!” I always ask students who took the class in previous years how they studied but most people tend to be very vague about their study habits. I know a lot of us, myself included, like attention to detail. We want to know inside and out what works and what doesn’t. Maybe a strategy that worked for you might not work for me, but learning what doesn’t work is arguably just as important as knowing what does.
So I propose we start a trend where everyone writes posts on how to study for past classes they’ve taken. The more specific to a certain class, the better, but general posts can be helpful, as well.
I’m going to add a page to my blog with links to study tips for specific classes I’ve taken. As of Spring 2015 that will include:
- General Biology
- General Chemistry
- Organic Chemistry
- Advanced Organic Chemistry
- General Physics
So feel free to reblog to spread the word, but I think it might also be helpful to add a comment of what classes you would like to see tips on so others can see it and write something for you. Especially if it’s for classes that aren’t as popular. Tips for the labs that go along with these classes would also be helpful.
For example, I would like to see study tips for the following classes:
- Fields and Waves
- Modern Physics
- Quantum Mechanics
- Physical Chemistry
- Analytical Chemistry
- Inorganic Chemistry
- Differential Equations
Feel free to add your own when you reblog!
I started a blog to keep track of subject-specific study posts: studyblrsubjects. Use the submit feature to send me links to your own posts you’d like me to reblog and categorize on there. It’s brand new so there’s not much on there right now, but keep it in mind.
