Learning and Study Techniques

After you have read this page, you can find learning and study techniques specifically for math and science on the math and science learning techniques page.

On this page you can find general college learning and study techniques. We give you ideas on how to improve your understanding of information in less time. These techniques can be applied to most any college course.

studying ≠ learning

Knowing how to study is important but knowing how to learn is what makes studying effective. So what is the difference and why should you care? Because time is your most valuable resource and it is possible to learn more in less time and then have more time for other important things.

One of the most helpful books we have read recently is the book to the right, The Practicing Mind: Developing Focus and Discipline in Your Life - Master Any Skill or Challenge by Learning to Love the Process, is highly recommended to help you focus and be able to learn, not just study.

The rest of this page has two main sections.
1. How learning is different than studying.
2. Specific studying techniques so that you actually learn the material.
The topics are listed below. Click on the button to open or close the discussion.

Section 2 - Specific Learning Techniques

Okay, so you are now in college. You got through high school, maybe even successfully. You think you know everything there is to know about studying and learning. But I can tell you there is more. You can improve your study techniques, learn more easily in less time with less effort and do better in school than you have up until now. You can also learn to teach yourself and be more independent. You will need to put in a little more effort up front but it will pay off big time later.

The first thing you need to do is to understand and believe that you can learn how to study better. You need to decide that you WANT to. If you think you know everything about studying or you don't want to learn more, you won't, so just stop reading now and go back to what you are doing. HOWEVER, if you really want to improve your study skills and you know that you can, then read on.
