I usually make summaries and highlight the keywords. I get really distracted by loud noises and the internet, text messages, Facebook, etc. That's why I need to study in a quiet room, this helps me to be focused on my studies. And also I take regular breaks when I study. I think it's very important.

I regularly make summary's and I often highlight the key words in my summary. Using different colors helps me studying.

As for me using mind maps for studying is really effective because you can easy understand and remember information.

i think the most important topic discussed here is about the significance of making a proper timetable. I actually understood its actual importance when i didn't make any. But at the end of the day, its 'studying' we are talking about and none can help us except us. I hope studying becomes more fun to us in the upcoming years.

It is a good way to read without any disturb if we use headphones. Writing notes takes much time so we must take the key things. But the important thing is to make the 'TIMETABLE'.

Great tips for studying! But this topic somehow similar to the topic in Intermediate section! Speakers are different and Upper section has more information about how to study! When I listened this, I also remembered Pomodoro Technics from Intermediate section! In general, excellent audio material!

Well, I am not good at study compared to practical and experimental word.
To concentrate I usually keep some snacks with me which helps me to focus much better. A room with good lighting also somtimes helps me to concentrate.

Truthfully speaking,I'm not much good at studying because I'm not serious with my studies so my parents are.I'm in struggle to achieve good grades but the thing that distracts me is the noisy environment and the cellphone vibrating every minute.So,i use to select the corner of my home to get rid of noise pollution and I'm trying to figure out some strategy to avoid excess use of social media.

Well there are many things which distracts me from studies such as Tv noise,mobile phones and disturbance caused by my young siblings but to me the most important thing is to make mind to concentrate.Although, it is difficult but when you have make a mind to study then no matter how much noise is effecting if your mind is agree then there is nothing which can distracts you from studies. Just keep your eyes on your destination and learn in a closed room.

To be honest, I feel quit sceptical when I see my class mates getting better grades than me but at the same time I feel like having tough competition in class makes student more focused towards his studies so yes I am moderate at studies. Without concentration it is impossible for anyone to get good grades so I prefer a quit and placid environment where I can easily study without any disturbing voices.

Noise,cell phone,gossip of siblings.are the things that distract me while studying.Interruptions always come in the roads of education so to avoid all these, i have selected a separate room(study room) with all the facilities required for my studies.in this way i am able to pay my full concentration as for getting success physical and mental concentrations is required

I am good at studies but certain events distract my concentration while studying such as noise of televisions, loadsheeding,playing of childrens.in order to achieve higher ranks I avoid these hinderness by studying at the place where there is no noise so that I can focus on my studies.

I think I’m good at studying, the technique which I use to concentrate is I sit in a quiet place where there is no distracting noises or people around also I make sure my cell phone is not with me as it’s the biggest of distractions.

I am good at studying and to do this I prefer studying in groups. It helps me understand better as in group various ideas will come. If one couldn’t understand others might help him understand well.
Next thing I do is I start from Maths as I like maths. You can start from your favourite subject. It increases my interest in studies.

I'm not good at concentrating while I'm studying. I'm always spoil when I search on the Internet about lession. When I open a tab, I will open another tab to read newpapers or watch video musics. I have a list what I must do in a day but I think I have never done it. My exam is next month. I try my best.

I dont think i'm very good at studying.
The way to help me to concentrate is sitting in the quiet environment and forgetting about the internet, messenger, facebook,...
Lately I have deactivated my Facebook account.

I am not very good at studying often, I do study for tests and everything but some stuff I do not find as important and I might look at the words or phrases that we get as homework in let's say French. But when I do study I use my whiteboard and my computer and I write the phrases so that I can make my hand remember so I do not do it wrong when I am tested at it.

I think I´m good at studying. To concentrate more I sit in a quiet room with no disturbing things. And sometimes I also listen to just a piano playing.

I prefer to study in a quite room this help me to be focused on my studies and to get good grades but this doesn't work for eveyone because there are people who say they are more concentrate when the study with some noises like television a member of their family who is speaking anyway everyone has his own study. I think that if you really want to be a brilliant student u have to organise your time and to be ready to take exams. Please if there is any mistake say it to me.
