I had my first anatomy test today. It was bright and early in the morning so I was able to get it over with. How did I do? Who knows. There were some that I knew and others that might as well have been written in a different language. I did actually study though. That’s a plus. In high school, I was the WORST at studying. I would sit at my desk with all the intentions of studying my butt off. Then my cat would walk by so I’d play with her. Or my phone would go off and I’d get distracted. Or I would see something shiny and stare at it. But really, I’m bad at studying. So in order to keep my mind from wandering, I headed to the library and studied like no other.
Here are some tips on how to study (then again, I’m probably the worst person to give tips on studying. Too bad!):
2. Bring snacks. In the beginning of the year, I would always have to leave the library because I would get hungry. And then I would totally lose the motivation to study once I stepped foot outside. Problem solved.
(P.S. Some of you guys were wondering where I got my dog food container from my last post. I got it from Dollar Tree 😀 It actually came in a pack. One was a small container and the other was a big container, like above. My sis and I got 2 packs and share a piece of each set 🙂 )
4. Unless your homework is on your computer, don’t bring it. It is wayy too easy to get distracted if my computer is nearby. So I just leave it in the dorm. It’s just me and my notes.
5. Turn your phone off. Unless you’re expecting a call from Ryan Gosling or Jillian Michaels, just turn it off. If you need to know the time, go old school and bring a watch.
7. Workout the morning of the test. When I do this, I get the good juices flowing so I don’t go into the test all groggy and tired. I’m pumped!
What study tips do you have? (I could use them!)
