Tips to Help You Study When You Aren’t at School

When you are in the confines of your school or university then learning isn’t an option. It just happens, whether you like it or not. And when it comes to your academic performance, this is nothing short of a positive effect.

However, it is when many students leave such a space that they find it difficult to pay attention to their studies and complete their learning.

If this sounds like you, below are some great ways to help.

Use your phone or tablet!

That’s right! While you may only see the device as a social tool, thanks to a large number of apps that are available it is also a strong learning tool.

Check your device’s app store to see what sort of learning apps are available. For example, if you are having difficulty reemerging certain dates for a History exam, look for a flash card based app that can help. If your subject is a little more complex, there are a range of apps that can help with subjects such as advanced trigonometry, a second language, and even physics.

Not All Textbooks Are Boring

As much as your teacher may tell you otherwise, the information in your school assigned textbook isn’t likely to be the most creative or interesting to read. However, they aren’t the only sources of the information you need.

Check out the Groupon Coupons page for AbeBooks and pick up textbooks that have the information you need but are written in a way that can keep you engaged.

Ask Your Family to Help

Just because your parents don’t understand calculus doesn’t mean that they can’t help you study the subject. Give them your notebook and ask them to quiz you every so often throughout the day or even on the weekends. If you used the first tip and are utilizing a flashcard app, make a physical set of your questions to provide to your parents.

For example, a quick 20-second pop-quiz at a red traffic light can be a great way to keep your brain active and can make the difference between remembering an item during a test and missing out on an easy point.

Group Study

While television sitcoms may have you and your parents thinking that group study sessions are only social events, the truth of the matter is that group study sessions are not very social at all. And this is with good reason – they are to study! if you don’t enjoy studying by yourself, consider joining a study group. Not only is it a good way to make friends, but you can also bounce your ideas and feedback from other classmates to either correct you’re your work or receive correction from you.

Nobody ever said that studying was going to be fun or that you would enjoy it, however, with these are some great ideas to help make the activity a little more interesting and engaging. So go, give them a try! You never know, you might begin to enjoy studying more than you ever thought you would!
