Top 10 reasons on how not to study
Lots of nursing students face many challenges. The biggest difference between a high school and a college is how they study. Usually in colleges you’re supposed to be doing it by studying day and night. Many high school students have different habits that they use to make sure that they study better. Some of the things that they do is to make sure that they study in groups. I’m going to go over the top 10 reasons and ways that you should never study.
Make sure you don’t go to a place that’s really crowded because it can be distracting. When you’re someplace like Starbucks or you’re someplace like Panera you are going to have lots of people coming in and out.
There’s going to be music playing there is no lines and there’s going to be people eating and talking about all kinds of things. You’re going to have people sitting next to you talking about things. You might have people talking to you and distracting you. You might get really hungry or you might be really thirsty and you want something to eat or something to drink. A little distraction goes a long way when it comes to studying.
Pretty much when you start studying and you get distracted it takes about 15 to 30 minutes just to get back on topic. This is why you should use an environment like your room or somewhere where it is nice and quiet so you can concentrate.
The next thing I would like to discuss as make sure that you don’t multitask. The reason why you don’t want to multitask is because you use 10 or 15 minutes on multitasking one thing. And then you go to the other thing and then You spend 10 or 15 minutes. So pretty much your attention span is going to be fluctuating and moving in different areas and that makes it even harder to get back to what you were doing. Because once you start talking or texting on your phone for example when you are done you’re going to look back at your phone and say okay where was I. So now you have to think about what you were doing before you got distracted.
Thirdly I would like to discuss that you do not want to overestimate. Don’t say that I’m going to wait two days before my exam and then I’m going to study. That’s not feasible and it’s not the correct way to go about it. If you plan for say an hour or two that you want to go somewhere and study and make sure that you free your mind and go to the study and process.
Finally, I would like to talk about nursing test Banks and how when people do not use them they end up spending 1000% more time studying. It’s so important to utilize correct and accurate information when you are studying. It is so important to make sure that you had the correct core knowledge that is required to answer questions that are on your exam.
Don’t just memorize topics and information and long paragraphs. You have to try to understand that information. If you try to just memorize things it’s going to be impossible. Can you literally memorize a textbook word for word. Of course you can’t because it is very difficult and very hard to do. What is really important is that you focus on the core and main important topic so that you know the gist of what is going on.
Try not to Micro Focus and try not to study just one particular topic on there is a broad range of topics that you have to cover. You don’t have all the time in the world to do this the time is limited so we have to focus on all the main priority topics that are required for you to know.
