CBS Discusses What Study Habits to Leave Behind
Myth One: Study in One Spot
The brain makes associations between what is studying and the background sensations that are occurring. Forcing the brain to make multiple associations with the same material, may provide the support needed to improve recall.
Myth Two: Focus on One Skill
Participating in multi-modal learning (reading, speaking, listening) leaves a deeper impression of the material on the brain.
Myth Three: Cram for Tests
Mix up the type of practice being done in a specific subject. Spacing the studying improves later recall. Testing helps this process. Don't underestimate motivation. Find help by using external support like learning center and tutors.
