Students are expected to take in more and more information within their schooling lives. In my experience tutoring VCE and university students, I have noted that many have not been taught how to study per se. Teachers do things like present their subject matter, give demonstrations, show example questions, and set homework for students. What I see lacking is educating students how to go home and study and revise.
Presented in this post, is a wide range of study methods and strategies. The idea is not that you use all of them all of the time, but rather pick and choose the strategies that work for you. If you are moving into a new subject area and your previously proven study method is not working, try some new ones.
Before I delve into the guts of this post, it is most important to understand your learning style and study to your strengths
