How do I find a study strategy that works for me?

There are many different study strategies that are effective for learning and it is important to try out different ones to see which suits your individual skillset and ability. I have explained some, but there are many more to explore! Retrieval practice is very useful for remembering main ideas. Put away all of your study materials and then write down everything you remember. Next, take as many study tests or practice questions available to you. When you miss a question, go back to it and study the main idea for next time. Another popular study technique is called interleaving. When practicing interleaving, make sure to switch between ideas and not to focus on one for too long. As you switch, make the connection between study topics. Finally, a great study skill that I like to use is making concrete examples. To do this, collect examples that your teacher has used or that you have found in your course material. Link main ideas to the examples and then try and make your own.
