  1. 1. By Jocelyn
  2. 2. <ul><li>Study is very important to everyone. Whether you are in Year 8, Year 12, University, etc, it is important to study. </li></ul><ul><li>Personal experience has proven to me that, even if you do well at school anyway, study really does boost your marks. It also helps to set in place good habits for your future! </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>Yes! </li></ul><ul><li>This is something I like to remember: </li></ul><ul><li>“ There are 3 easy steps to get what you want in life and achieve your goals: </li></ul><ul><li>Know what you want. </li></ul><ul><li>Know what you have to do to get it </li></ul><ul><li>Just do it! </li></ul><ul><li>If you want to graduate High School or University with high marks, you should know that studying well is what you will have to do. So, just do it! </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>This website, the Study Skills Handbook, has more than enough information, ideas and ways of helping you study. </li></ul><ul><li>The way that has worked for me so far is pretty simple: </li></ul><ul><li>In class, I take a normal exercise book that I do all my normal class work in. At home, however, I keep a “Study Book” for each subject... </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Study Books are great if you learn by writing things down, or reading it. Even if you don’t learn this way, they are fantastic for reference later on. </li></ul><ul><li>In my Study Books, I write down facts, equations, etc. It is my way of separating the main points, ideas and concepts that we are taught from exercises and activities. I find it a really good way of organising my notes – do big folders, just a few books. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Basic Equations, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>For example, in my Maths Study Book, I might put something like: Circumference of a Circle: π D </li></ul><ul><li>Then, before an exam, I can quickly refer back to my Study Book to remind myself what the equation is. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>In a quiet place, where you won’t be distracted. Basically, be in a room with no TV, games, computers (unless being used for study!). It is also a good idea to avoid listening to your iPod or Mp3 Player because these can lower your focus... Sorry! </li></ul><ul><li>You should study at a table or desk, sitting properly on a chair. This helps your posture and will be better for writing, etc. </li></ul>
  8. 8. <ul><li>Anytime that works for you. It is a good idea to have a set time each day that is dedicated to study. Don’t study late at night – the information won’t be retained in your brain! </li></ul><ul><li>Keep it consistent! </li></ul>
