Studying is an essential part to college success. Try some of these study hacks to take your study skills to the next level:

  1. Walk before an exam. Studies have shown that about 20 minutes of exercise before an exam can improve performance.
  2. Teach what you have learned. This will test if you truly understand the material.
  3. Drawing diagrams can help you visualize concepts that would be hard to describe.
  4. If typing your notes, Times New Roman is the fastest font to read.
  5. You’re 50% more likely to remember something if you speak it out loud instead of simply reading it over and over.
  6. Avoid distractions by blocking certain websites for a set amount of time. Apps like SelfControl (http://selfcontrolapp.com/) can help you stay focused.
  7. Try to engage all your senses (sight, smell, taste, touch and sound) while studying. The more senses you engage, the more likely you are to remember.
  8. Form a study group
  9. Reward yourself with a treat for a job well done.
