The author was looking at a book that challenges the notion that high test scores equals true learning. He feels students need to study smarter. "How We Learn: The Surprising Truth About When, Where and Why It Happens" by B. Carey.
I summarize these as follows:
- Change your study environment time to time. Desk, kitchen table, Starbucks, etc.
- Talk about your learning to either yourself or study mates.
- Review the information one to two days after learning it the first time.
- Sleep better ie: foreign language test go to be early and wake up to review. Math test study late and then sleep as long as possible.
