Hi everyone! In the last few days I’ve been studying for the Neuroscience competition. I love this topic so much and I’d like to study it in the future. So I decided to write something about my method which I use to study my everyday subjects. The first thing is obviously attending classes and taking as many notes as possible about the information which is missing in your books. Then I underline what my professor explains with a yellow fluorescent highlighter, so I can focus on the most important things. At home I do a diagram to tidy my notes if they are a mess, since I often have to write very fast. The diagrams I do are VERY colourful. My favourite colours are dark blue and bright purple: I do love watching them and I think that by seeing those colours information, I can memorise better. To study I read out loud the highlighted things and this is a good help for your brain to memorise. Then I try to repeat out loud what I’ve just read and form sentences by using words that are different from the ones in my book. I usually have a look to the diagrams and pictures of my book to match them to the information and I check the things I have forgotten while repeating. In the end I say everything again trying to remember as much as I can and I continue with other pages. Basically I repeat out loud as much as possible until I learn everything perfectly.
I hope you found this helpful! Oh and I have a new Instagram account (it’s happydesk99) where I post inspiring and creative pictures of my desk. They tell my work and hobbies in my everyday life.
