We all want to get the most information in a short amount of time when studying. Incorporating some tips when studying can help us increase our learning efficiency.
Use large print Reading larger print can help prevent missing important information, and it can make learning and remembering easier.

Highlights Dates, places, names of people, etc. are easier to remember when they are highlighted. Use markers to mark the contents you need to remember.
Visualization Make visual connections to help your brain better understand and remember data by turning content into objects in your mind while remembering, search for "memory palace".
Graphic representation Large passages of text can be too monotonous and the brain will stop processing such large amounts of content. Instead, deconstruct information with the help of diagrams, flowcharts, and even drawings.
Doodling Any way to make learning fun is worth a try. Doodling is a fun way to remember otherwise boring events and details.
Practice active recall To ensure effective memory, try to recall what you've just read to ensure that simple reading is a mechanical act of engagement.
Explain to someone else To reinforce your memory, explain the content to a family member or classmate. This active recall process can be very helpful before the test.
Practice Practice exams tell you how well you are prepared and what you need to spend more time studying for. They are like a litmus test to determine what you have already mastered.
Don't leave it until the last minute Leaving studying until the last minute can have a negative impact. When the brain is under pressure, it can't focus on learning and can't easily take in content.
Don't multitask The best way to learn is to keep yourself focused on your studies and avoid cell phone distractions, social media, etc. to minimize distractions.
Multiple subjects Studying one subject for a long time will slow down your brain's reception, but it is advisable to study a little bit of a different subject each day to increase your learning efficiency.
Time allocation Some people can concentrate in the early morning hours, while others figure out what works for you before bedtime and intensify their studies at that time.
Take break Sometimes, no matter how much you want to focus, you just can't seem to do it. In this case, do something simple that relaxes you and then come back to it.
