Tips To Remember Science Content
1) Make sure you have all of your notes.
That way when you’re ready to study, everything must be neatly organised and you can start studying right away.
Also put the date at the top of the page when you start taking notes. This will keep you in chronological order, which can help you conceptualize the moment you were taking these notes and aid in studying. It is a very vital part of memorising as writing notes can sometime help you store certain information almost immediately.
Develop your own style of abbreviation!!
Writing out whole words and complete sentences is a waste of time. You’ll be paying attention to spelling out everything the instructor said rather than absorbing the information.
By abbreviating words and phrases, you’ll be able to take down a greater amount of information in a clearer, more manageable way. Do not also mind too much about the handwriting when writing notes as worrying too much about handwriting can also take up too much of time.
2)Look over your notes within 24 hours of taking them.
Even if you don’t have a test coming up, you should look over your notes within a day of taking them.
This will put you at a huge advantage when you actually start studying for a test. Then when you study in the days before a test, you will be able to recall the information much easier than if you hadn’t looked over your notes at all since you took them.
3) Use mnemonic devices.
A mnemonic is a mental tool used to jar your memory and help you remember things. There are a number of mnemonics you could use to improve your memory and raise your test scores.
More of such uses will help you remember many things easily and in a more fun manner which can potentially develop interest in that subject.
These are some of the most popular ones.
Make a song. Tuneful lyrics are easier to memorize than words on a page. Try making a song out of things you have to memorize. You don’t have to make a whole new song. Instead, just replace the words in a song you already like or familiar with. This will make memorising even easier.
Use the first letter of each word in a sequence to make a name. Probably the most famous example of this is ROYGBIV, the colours of the rainbow: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet
Make a rhyme for different information. Like making a song, creating rhymes helps you remember information.
