If you or any member of your staff or family has ever had to study for a test, exam or presentation you will get great value from listening to Karen Boyes of Spectrum Education. Being good at studying and getting good results is not intuitive and there ARE techniques to learn that will dramatically improve our outcomes.
Here’s a sprinkling of Karen’s wisdom:
- ‘Kids are told to study, but not HOW to study’.
- If we don’t review what we’ve learnt within 24 hours of receiving new information, within 3 days we’ll only retain 30% of what we’ve heard.
- Don’t cram
- How to cope with the ‘night before’ nerves
- Study the information you don’t know, instead of wasting time going over material you’ve already got familiarity on.
