    Tips for revising

    Anyone got any useful tips for revising?
    I have exams in a week and nothing seems to stick in my head no matter how much I read it

    What did you do for exams?

    Getting off this forumn is one idea but please, this is a genuine question.

    I have no idea Owain, insomnia worked for me.

    Perhaps if you revised some of the time in the library, there'd be less distractions.

    Re: Tips for revising

    I have to write notes, or rewrite note, to get the stuff into my head properly.

    Imagine you are planning on cheating in the exam - taking in a sheet of paper with all the stuff on it that you need to cheat - if you hadn't studied. Make that sheet of paper.
    Only you w'on't need it in the exam, once you've made it, the information will stick in your head. And leave it at home - you don't want any chance of being caught with such a thing during the exam in case they have suspicious minds.

    I do my best work on lot's of coffee early in the morning---and rewriting helps---getting penis completely off the mind and away from computer is a challenge. And a New Years resolution I've already fucked up

    Not in mine. They're used for school-kids to socialise and flirt and eat and pick their noses.

    Meet Tiny.



    Tiny's in your class. God knows why - he didn't sign up for it. But he's about to take the same exams you are. But he ain't so bright. He's read the books - well, tried to. And he didn't understand most of any of it. So he asked you really nice like if you'd help him get ready. If you help him pass the course, he'll give you anything you want. Maybe he'll give you a hiding spot in the locker room so you can watch the team change. Or he'll get you a job as the team towel boy so you can look more openly. Or he'll get you a night with the hottest guy on the team. Whatever you want. Just help him pass.

    Mind you, you can't just open the book and read it to him. He tried that. He didn't get it. You're going to have to explain everything to him, in completely different words, using terminology that he'll understand.

    Teach Tiny the material.

    This got me through so many classes it's not even funny.

    Re: Tips for revising

    Hi Owain, at first, I had no idea what you meant. Revising, evidently, is a British term. I looked it up.

    Seeing you are a science major, as was I, if it's formulas, structures, mathematics and/or chemical equations, etc. I had to write them down repeatably. It's tough just to try to memorize them. Do this, as well, with important concepts, terms, and definitions. Pad and pencil.

    Anything I can help you with, especially if your taking any chemistry, don't hesitate to ask.

    Re: Tips for revising

    I was never one for revising. If you've made sure that you understood your course as you've gone along, it should all come back to you on the day.

    I was one for exam technique. Read the instructions - do you have to answer a choice of questions or all of them? Remember to turn the paper over and look for more questions on the back (I knew a Cambridge PhD who failed an exam for not doing this!). Divide the time available between the questions to be answered and give each one it's due share. If you run out of time move on, you may be able to come back if you have time left at the end. Read the paper thoroughly - answer the questions asked rather than the questions you wish you'd been asked (NB doesn't apply if you're reading politics). A diagram can speak a thousand words.

    Good luck.

    Re: Tips for revising

    Revising for me began from the start. As I'd go through the course work, I'd be building a guide, outline. I used this to organise my notes throughout the term. Once exam-time came around, I had the leg work done. I'd read through my notes, glance over the books. Topics on which I'd get stuck, I'd write more notes, or I'd walk around the room talking about it.

    Given my problems with concentration, I had to take frequent brakes. Some as often as every 20 minutes, but definitely every hour or so. I'd get up, walk a bit, have a smoke, and just let my mind wander - sometimes on the material, sometimes on random stuff.

    Give a man religion, and he'll starve praying for a fish.

    Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition Repetition ...

    The only way I can remember something is to do it a million times and then I just do it without having to think about it.

    Re: Tips for revising

    I was gifted with a great memory, so it was never a problem to revise

    Generalities : the brain remembers best just before going to sleep. So for the rote part, it's best to read lessons before going to bed. No coffee or too high sugar 4 hours before sleeping.
    Do you know what type of memory you have ? Do you remember best visually, by hearing, kinetically (with the movement of your hands/fingers by example) ?
    If visually, try to make inner 'pictures' of what you try to learn. If hearing, speak aloud what you read. If kinetic, try and write what you read.

    Do exercises from annals if possible.

    Exercise to sweat things out,
    study, and try to sleep well.

    Then repeat again and again until you know your material.

    Re: Tips for revising

    I would:

    Go over my notes
    Create a cheat sheet (most of my exams allowed a page of notes).
    Look over said sheet and fill in any gaps with material from the book, etc.

    Creating and compiling my notes gave me a chance to actively study the material. When it came time for the exam, I didn't really need the notes.

    When I was rehearsing my thesis defense, I recorded myself and listened to it several times a day. I also recited it out loud and practiced in front of friends. When the time came, I did reference my notes, but I could have made it through without. It's not the same situation as an exam, but those techniques may be helpful, too.

    Also, taking (short) breaks is crucial.

    And, how did you do?

    Are you changing how you study from anything that was shared with you in the thread?

    Or is the anxiety just lower because you shared?

    For me, learning is easy, but it is because I talk about the subject, discussing it with the teacher, with another, and I relate to the learning if at all possible. Do I retain it all? Depends. Many details become blurred later, but the core is what makes it stick.

    Always ask yourself, "what is the main thing in this book?" Likewise, continue to break it down: what is the main thing in this chapter, what is the main thing in this section, in this paragraph, etc. Why is it important?

    I think it went well but I don't want to jinx myself lol

    I did try a few of the things you guys suggested. It was good to share my stress and hearing how you cope with it helped a lot

    I started doing more repetition and the idea of a cheat sheet was something I wouldn't have thought of before.

    I bought myself a white board so I can write things out and pretend I'm teaching someone

    Re: Tips for revising

    I think first you have to recognise your type of learning. If you're better at hearing, speak out your learning materials or record materials to be heard again and again. If you're better at visual, then make graphs/algorithms/flow charts about your materials, as attractive as possible. If you're better physically/verbally, you may consider rewriting things in small brief notes or skimming through the materials normally.

    Then repetition makes perfect. Repeat the process as many as possible at every chance possible, e.g. when you're in the bathroom stall, sitting in the bus, waiting for someone with nothing else to do, etc. You don't have to memorise everything at once, but with repeated exposure, you will remember things easier than just once in a while. Don't read all at once; divide in sections.

    And the best way to take all above into practice in a single action is none other than teaching. Teach using your favourite learning style. Explain verbally, visually, and physically to your study group (if you prefer learning with peers) or a friend or to imaginary audience. You'll find how surprisingly you learn from teaching: it enhances what you already know and it also provides feedback on your weak points.

    Likewise what Lex said, it works for me too so many times it's not funny.



    EDIT: Oops, I don't know you already finished your exams hope you're doing well.
    come now, my child. if we were planning to harm you, do you think
    we'd be lurking here beside the path in the darkest part of the forest?
