How can you use study time most efficiently?

Monday, January 11th, 2010

Using the time available for study is vital for getting best results. The right use of this time also helps set aside some time for other pursuits, such as hobbies, sports or exercise.

The first step in the efficient use of time is to schedule the things that need to be studied. Without a schedule you wouldn’t know where to start and where to end. A schedule should also contain all the subjects or topics need to be studied. In fact, care should be taken to see that nothing is left out.

Now, allocate the time needed for each topic. There are no specific formulas for this exercise. As a rule of thumb, you just need to allocate maximum time to the most difficult subjects or topics and the least time to the easiest subjects or topics.

This should be followed by determining the part of day or night when the study has to be done. It would be a good idea to study the difficult subjects or topics when you are most fresh since it allows for greater concentration and more understanding.

Once the study is in process, it is essential to gauge how well it is proceeding. For that, you would need to sit back from time to time and survey all that has been studied. A good student will work up the courage to ask himself or herself difficult questions, and see how well the subject or topic has been absorbed. Naturally, there would be some doubts, too. At such points it would be best to repeat the same thing to oneself several times and memorize it. Get back to the topic once again after a few hours or a day and see whether you remember it all. If yes, the hours spent in studying has been worth it. Otherwise, you would need to spend a few more hours at it.
