Some old-ish Neopets doodles I found while organising my drawings folder. First is that Tyrannian Grarrl I was never able to get due to a lack of space, second is my Snot Uni whose on-site name is Paint_Horse but is referred to as Gregory.
My bullet journal got some water damage to the cover when it was in my bag, so I decided to cover it up with some marble contact paper! Loving the result. Bonus: spread from a few weeks ago that I never posted hehe!
Pulling off all-nighters or cramming is no stranger to us. However, these study styles aren’t actually efficient in eating those chunks of information we need to pass our tests.
1. Distributed practice. Or basically have planned study sessions in chunks. Studies show that you best encode information in repeated short training sessions. This is because repeated short training sessions, spaced in time, engage multiple sets of synapses. It’s as if your brain is working at full power. So yes, if you want to become a successful student then you need to learn to be consistent in your studies and to have regular, yet shorter, study periods.
2. Use flashcards. Flashcards engage in “active recall”. In other words, you are attempting to remember the concept from scratch rather than simply staring at the passage in your textbook or recognizing it on a multiple choice quiz.
