Study Smarter, Not Harder



Studying smart is all about efficiency, prioritizing understanding over memorization, and achieving a healthy balance that doesn't drain your energy. It's about getting hands-on, whether it's summarizing concepts in your own words or explaining things to a classmate. Quality beats quantity; aim to truly grasp core concepts instead of cramming excessive information. Test your recall abilities—try remembering without peeking at your notes, and sprinkle in repetition to make it stick. Set clear, achievable goals for each study session to stay focused and motivated and monitor your progress.
