Creative Studying

In this season of final exams, you've heard the traditional advice to get lots of sleep and study time, eat a good breakfast, turn off the TV, etc.  Now it's time for nontraditional advice.  We've known people who've slept next to their books, as if they'd absorb the information overnight.  One staff member said he listened to music while studying - when he took the test, he'd think of the song he studied to, and that would help him remember what he learned.  We also heard of someone who'd draw pictures to help herself visualize the material she studied.

So what about you: Do you have any creative methods for studying or simply getting through exam season?  (And no, you can't say "cheat" - that's cheating.)

    I study my formulas and things that we have done through the year before I do my exams. Like we are having EOG's this week and I am going to study my formulas tonight. I also pray before I do my tests and I have faith in my-self

    what i do to study is if you need to learn word definition just remember the first words.

    I totally think that all of the traditional advice is great. But, I get tired of hearing all about how getting good sleep and eating a good breakfast can help. My tip: don't over-study. Studying too much could lead to stress or anxiety. So, study, but only until you think you understand what you are going to be tested on.

    I'm not very good at studying so to review I look at questions from my test that I have taken in that class and make a song out of it scence I can remember lyrics very well

    May 17, 2011 at 6:10 pm |
  7. Brill

    After I studied, I bring out a board.( blackboard, whiteboard, anything)
    And start to explain what I learned
    That way, I can remember what I studied for a long time
    and know the part that I'm weak.

    i do think traditional advice is good on studying like getting your full hours of sleep and etc. but another way to study on a exam is listening to music that can cocentrate yourself in the subject that you need to study on. just dont get to carried away with music and dose off into space.

    I try to write everything down on a piece of paper and put a little drawing next to it and make it very colorful. The color helps me absorb the information better and to remember it when I need it. And to make it a little fun, I like to make a little jingle or rhyme to remember it!

    May 17, 2011 at 7:55 pm |
  10. Erik

    i have a really useful one. record you reading all the material, then listen to it everyday in the morning and the evening. it helped me last year a lot. its like your own personal teacher.

    May 17, 2011 at 8:03 pm |
  11. Natalie

    I cross off the answers that don't make sense, then I only have a fraction of the answers to figure out instead of all.

    May 17, 2011 at 9:00 pm |
  12. Madison

    I find it easy to write a song kinda poem to help me remember the different concepts my teacher has taught me!

    May 17, 2011 at 9:03 pm |
  13. penelope

    sure eating a good breakfast and going to bed on time...I have found that if you study too much it causes stress but if you dont study it can hurt your grade....my way is to say what i need to remember over and over and then, when the test comes i try to hear myself saying that.

    May 17, 2011 at 9:08 pm |
  14. logan

    the very first thing you should do is make sure you know wat your studying for and have a great breakfast and good night sleep

    May 17, 2011 at 9:09 pm |

    i have to study for my math final. i use my previous assignments and i learn from my mistakes

    According to the academic research
    people`s memory ability reach the top is at 5pm to 7 pm everyday
    so I`m used to using this period to study the book which is hard for me
    and it`s really work. During this period I can memorize everything that I can`t memorize before .

    May 17, 2011 at 9:19 pm |
  17. Natalie

    On the test I cross off the answers that don't make sense so that I only have a fraction of the answers to deal with. Also I think the only reason the music trick or the book trick works is because you think it will which makes you remember.

    May 17, 2011 at 9:24 pm |
  18. Josh

    I literally grab my textbook and out loud, orally reteach myself the lessons.

    May 17, 2011 at 9:39 pm |
  19. Jed

    Pick something you like to do the most, like playing games for example. Then set a goal on how much you are going to study and what subjects you need to study. Now, devote yourself to that goal and don't play games or whatever you like to do until you accomplish that goal. Also if it is hard because of the temptation, ask your parent, sibling, friends, or all of them to help prevent you from doing it until you met your goal.

  20. Maya

    I always read the whole chapter in the book that we were reading from and then like you do on spelling tests write down all the info ten times and for me it really works. I would also drink alot of water i know that would make you pee but it for some reason stops you from getting as nervase and not make you feel like you have to go durring the test. It helps.

    May 17, 2011 at 10:08 pm |
  21. Jacob

    I think it just depends on the person. I hardly ever study at home, but before the test starts I study. It helps me remember the answers more when I go to take to test.

    May 17, 2011 at 10:12 pm |
  22. trevon

    traditional and nontraditional advice both are good advice. but personaly i i just go 2 sleep early and eat a good breakfast before i leave my house and at school

    May 17, 2011 at 10:23 pm |
  23. shakira

    personally, i don't study. it makes me forget information on tests. i like to retain the information as much as possible and right before i'll skim, but not hardcore study. it's a weird method but it works for me.

    May 17, 2011 at 10:25 pm |
  24. Jordan

    I study by making a colorful study guide and putting small pictures that have to do with the question that way i would have a visual picture and colorful words that would help me remember.

    May 17, 2011 at 10:44 pm |
  25. Abbey

    When I study I like to find a nice quiet place that nobody will bother me. I also leave my phone Ipod computer and other electronics downstairs so they wont distract me. every time i do this and spend a good 4-5 hours studying and get a good nights sleep and a really good breakfast in the morning i always do really good on the test!

    May 17, 2011 at 10:48 pm |
  26. Ashley

    Make flash cards, and on one side write the question in pen/pencil and then write the answer in a pretty color , that way when you take your tests you'll have to remember the color which will help you remember the word !

    May 17, 2011 at 10:59 pm |
  27. Didi

    I believe traditional advice for studying is good but sometimes studying too much makes you tired. What I do is I find things that help me remember what I studyed instead of trying to remember everything I've read & learn .

    May 17, 2011 at 11:15 pm |
  28. Sumana

    1.Focus!!
    2.If you're hungry while studying, have a snack and water in front of you!

    Non-traditional advice is like super stition. The traditional advice always helps, and if you are super-stitional, the non-traditional advice will help you too.

    i connect different types of music for different subjects then break it into songs that fit the genre. When I read a question about one thing some how the song helps remind me of the answer.

  32. Liu

    Hi, Carl. I'm a chinese student and watch your CNN Student News for a long time.
    Honor to join in this topic and I think traditional advice is better to our learning process, I think. Maybe you know, learning something you don't like is a afflictive case, especially In china, lots of lessons are boring and unmeaning but we have to study them resulting from exams. So, if I want to pay my full attention to my paper, my homework or textbook, all things which may attract me must be cut off !

    May 18, 2011 at 2:09 am |
  33. Julia

    Yes I do: in all of my notes during the school year I draw pictures in the margins that have to do with the subject matter (my world history teacher knows this very well) and I try to make them funny. That way when I go over the notes, I reread the comics I have made in the margins and connect the images with the subject matter. I know it sounds weird but it works! That's how I did well on my World History final: I studied my drawings of Napoleon and his three mistakes.

    My teachers tell me Peppermints help stimulate the brain. During the exams at my school, my teacher passed out Peppermints. I felt focused my minty mouth! Also, get full hours of sleep, and a good snack before school.

    I am interested in English studying, but I don't know what's best way to learn. Because I always study hard for a while and then miss it up. When I am frustraed with it. Does anyone can give some good advice for it? 😦

    If I have a test the next day i study with paper and then read it before I go to bed and put it under my pillow then when i wake up i read it again. It works!

  38. Emily

  42. DOMINIQUE

    a creative study skill could be having a friend come over and studdy with you . you could all so make flash cards for the things you need to studdy and you can ues your past assinments that you could pratice with by studing right be for school if have time ,you could studdy on the bus and if youhave time befor the test you could practice with a friend so that it would be fresh in your mind.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:02 am |
  43. Shay

    The couple of weeks before the test are the most important to me: the teacher will constantly talk about or go over things that will be on the upcoming test! Pay attention and take notes! I review over the materials the night before the test, then on the way to school in the car so the information can be fresh on my mind 🙂

    May 18, 2011 at 9:03 am |
  44. Sarah

    I record my voice, I would speak out my notes, the textbook, or anything useful. I would then play it back and listen to it. It's a great way to memorize for a teenager (they easily memorize song lyrics from listening to it on their iPod)

    May 18, 2011 at 9:21 am |
  45. Madison

    To help me study I normally make flash cards and listen to music. I also think that you should only study until you get what you have to know. Over studying can lead to forgetting what you studied and test anxiety and getting a bad grade. Another thing I will do is study for an hour or two and take a break then study again so that way I don't over load myself and Im still reminding myself what I studied before.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:28 am |
  46. Sheila

    To study for exams I normally listen to music that doesn't have to much of an up beat to it. I find that if I can remember the song I was listening to when I studying that certain topic I can figure out the answer. I will start singing the song in my head then I remember what I was reading or figuring out and I answer the question. I find that when I have music on my mind doesn't take off in a different direction, it focus on the topic at hand. Plus another thing that I do is if I know the subject real well I won't over study that topic I will focus on the weak areas of others.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:36 am |
  47. Emma

    I study for test by taking out all of my books for the test. Then, I open up to the pages and read. Last, I have a good night sleep.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:56 am |
  48. Danielle

    Some ways that I study are by reading through my text book. I usually do that for about an hour or so. Then, I make up questions that I think may be on the test and answer them. Sometimes, I even go to my school's study sessions.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:57 am |
  49. Nick

    First, I bring home all of my books. Then I think about what I need to learn about most. Then I do them in order. For about 30 minutes.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:58 am |
  50. JO JO

    I do what the teacher says. I wright 5 paragraphs: intro body conclusion. For math i bring my book home and study. same for science and history.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:58 am |
  51. Lyla

    When i study, i read over everything in my textbook. I look at the pictures very closely. When i take my test i remember the pictures and the words next to them.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:59 am |

    I study by... eating a healthy breakfast. Focusing on testing. Studying the week/day/weeks before. review.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:59 am |
  53. Jack

    I study in many different ways but my most common way has been studying with my family. But since I'm getting older and they're getting busier so I've lately been studying by myself and looking through my notes.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:59 am |
  54. Xaviar

    I study a week before the test . First I read my notes twice. then i go to the study session .that is how i study for a test.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:59 am |
  55. Chris

    i study by bringing textbooks and notebooks home. I go to study sesions after school. I make a pratice test

    May 18, 2011 at 10:00 am |
  56. Vincenzio

    one way that i study is I read my notes.Sometimes I usually read the book of which i need to study. Then i ask my dadb to test me on that subject.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:00 am |
  57. Glenn

    Yes, I have a bunch of tips for getting an A on a test. One tip, is to read over your notes many, many times. Another tip is to do problems that you think will be on test. But you could use questions your teacher gave you.
    Lastly, good luck on your test and be serious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 18, 2011 at 10:01 am |
  58. Lily

    What I do to study is go to all of the class reviews and study all of the information on the night before the test so that all of the information is fresh in your mind for the next day. Also I complete all of the packets to help me know the consepts. When I study sometimes dance around before I study and eat a snack so I am filled up and ready without any jitters. It's really fun to do and I love to do it when I study. Whoo hoo:)

    May 18, 2011 at 10:02 am |
  59. lizzy

    here are the things I do before tests. First I make or get a study guide. Then I do most of it in one day leaving atleast one problem in each section. The next day, I ask quesions about problems I had trouble on. In class I do the other problems with my teacher. the day before the test, I go to bed early then eat agood breakfestand lunch.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:02 am |
  60. Kali

    What I do to study is lay down in my room and listen to classical piano. For some people it may put them to sleep but it can actually clear your mind so that you can fit all the knowledge in.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:16 am |
  61. N'kayla

    When i study i use flashcards because they help me memorize things better. I also listen to music while i study because without music i get distracted by everything around me so music is my only source.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:31 am |
  62. Kamille

    The way that i always study is by saying the notes a few times and the try to memorize it. and i mostly get a good grade o the test.

    make a game out of it with your family or friends studing is always funer if your doing it with some one else

    May 18, 2011 at 10:34 am |
  65. Shyanne

    I'm tired of hearing, get a good nights rest or eat breakfest in the morning. Because honestly, it's not always the answer. My tip is don't over study. Study until you understand everything. Make a game out of what your supposed to study, make a song, or have a study group and make it fun. That way you will remember everything you study.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:36 am |
  66. Lucero

    Yes i do. I enjoy listening to music but very low because that way i can concentrate. Also, sometimes i need quiet because maybe its an important exam.

    I study by taking notes and writing on index cards. I write the definitions and important questions so that I can quiz myself later.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:05 am |
  76. Sheila

    I break up studying by doing it while I watch TV. I study during commercial breaks to help me break it up into sections.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:06 am |

    I put the information I'm studying in a song and that helps me remember it.

  78. Lyndzie

    I take notes in class.Before we have a test I study my notes.This helps me do good on a test.I also do my best to not be in a rush when I do my homework.When you rush you might skip a problem.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:20 am |
  79. Tanner

    Usually my teacher gets sneaky and just takes questions from the worksheets, so i go to them and star the most important sections, then throughout the day I just relax, then test time comes and I go over the starred questions in my head then check my self with the answers

    Also I make acronyms if I have to remember things in chronological order

    May 18, 2011 at 11:23 am |
  80. Hew

    I read through the book or think I'm should study, then play a video game so I can relate what I'm studying to what I'm playing and remember that.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:27 am |
  81. Mady

    When i'm trying to study vocabulary for my foreign language class, I often write down just the words I need to know, then go back and fill in the definitions. On the ones that I have to look in my textbook to get the answer, I put a star next to. When I'm done, I write all the words that have a star next to them in a new list. I repeat this until I don't have to look in my book anymore.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:27 am |
  82. Mr. Sebela

    I don't have to take the test anymore being that I am a teacher but if I did I have a few ideas that would make it a little easier. First off, I would start my day with a big bowl of alphabets cereal, you know to get my brain thinking educationally. Secondly, I would try to talk to people only using multiple choice answers. Like "A-would you like to go to the mall, B-would you like to go the movies, C-would you like to go to get pizza, or D-All of the above. Lastly I would record math word problems being read aloud by Morgan Freeman to listen to as I go to sleep at night. I do not know if these would work, but they sure couldn't hurt.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:28 am |
  83. chauncey

    Well, i think we should just eat a healthy breakfast and study, study, study!!! 🙂

    May 18, 2011 at 11:30 am |
  84. Chia-Sheng

    First, I would review what I have learned right after the classes to have some impressions of what is covered and what is important. And before the tests, I just skim through all the materials and focus on the big and most important concepts, trying to make strong connections between them so as to learn them by heart. In the exams, I use my brain and output what I have learned attentively. After all the hard work and big exams, I would give myself some rewards which give myself an incentive and motivation for preparing for the next exams.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:30 am |
  85. andrea

    i would study and take my books everywhere. I would go and when im sleeping i would dream about my testing. Then when i wake up i would eat eggs.

  87. jessica

    Studying isn't fun at all. Taking a test or studying wow thats fun. People can make learning fun by getting kids involved. One idea would be writing on the bored or one the over head projector. I am a teenager and that kind of stuff makes learning fun for me. Or kids can have study buddies with a good friend that they have. Playing games like math jeopardy. People can also watch sesame street with the count.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:34 am |
  88. robert

    I think that some interesting ways to prepare for the testing are to read all the books that you can. So that you will learn all the information you can learn about the subject that you are taking the test on. another idea would be to take a practice test. my last idea is to play a game of jeopardy with your friend on all the subjects that you are testing on whoever won would get a better score on the testing.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:35 am |
  89. travis

    I think some creative ways to get ready to study is to eat a good breakfast.Also get a good night sleep even though on the test i think i did really good but on some i think i guest on the ones that i didnt know. We shouldnt take the test eaither beacuse it doesnt seem important to anybody.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:35 am |

    Usually, I try to remember an event that happened the day I learned the material, and when I think of it, I remember the class period and what I learned.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:52 am |
  92. Ibrahim

    All I do for studying is focus,memoris all the answers,and hope I don't get a bad grade. That means nothing less then an A+. I hope every body studies the way I do.

    May 18, 2011 at 11:59 am |
  93. Drew

    i think that having like a little study guide while studying is a good idea. also having music playing...

    Traditional advice is great, dont get me wrong. But sometimes it doesn't work for me. So when I study or sleep the night before, i play classical music. it calms me in ways rock (what i normally listen to) and blues cant.

    Try to come up with creative ways to help you study such as diagrams or songs and dances. It works for me.

    IM NOT GOOD AT STUDYING !!! Questions from my test that i have taken in class are hard for me to remember and by making a song out of it will help me do good on the test cause its easier to remember lyrics then remembering history question. so i think it would be a good idea to make the questions into lyrics so we have a beat go off of. and not only in my opinion but in other teenage students would think that that is a good idea cause the average teenager listions to rap and hip-hop all the time and thats what their doing like 24/7 so if we made test questions into an upbeat song then in my on opinion i think we would do better in school!!!!

    I started to make up catchy rhyming songs with the information I need to study and it really has made a big impact on my grades

    A creative way is to buy everyone food before the test.

    Get paper or a white board and try to teach your stuffed animals pretend you are the teacher.I've never done it but it works with some of my friends.

    Well, sometimes, what I do is I get to a comfortable place and listen to music while studying. It makes me calm and relaxed. So, at the test, I am also very relaxed and get a good

  111. J.J

    What I do is sit in a light room and study for 1 hour. Another thing that I do is read the information and then ask an adult to semi-quiz me. Also, what I would do is try do do something that I always think of during class, then I would study while doing that thing so I would remember it during the test.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:31 pm |
  112. katherine

    I study best while I am sitting down or laying down and somebody quizes me, like my mom. I am not doing anything else while studying. I aslo get plenty of sleep and a well-balanced breakfast on the day of the test too.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:31 pm |
  113. Isabella

    How I like to study is the study-reward process. I study for a while, then I allow myself to have a reward(like 5 minutes of free time) then back to studying. However, this will only work if the studying time is longer than the free "reward time". Like, I usually study 15 minutes before I do my reward time.
    When I complete ALL my studying, I give myself a slightly bigger reward, like a cookie or 10 minutes of free time.
    Hope I helped! ^^

    May 18, 2011 at 1:31 pm |
  114. T

    I always need to study for tests. I study by bringing my textbook home. I read it and then my mom quizes me on what I read.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:32 pm |
  115. DJ

    When I study I write some information on index cards study them and then ask a parent to read the word to me and then I'll tell the definition to them. If I get the definition right they put them in the pile of corrects but if I got it wrong they put it back behind the cards and I try to say the correct definition the next time.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:32 pm |
  116. STEVEN

    I WRITE A RAP. I PRACTICE IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. SO WHEN IT IS TIME FOR THE TEST I SING IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN IN MY HEAD AND IT HELPS ME SOLVE THE PROBLEMS.

  117. Erin

    I study for tests by listening to the teacher in class. I also read the textbook that has the information I'm having the test on and remember the things I've read. At home I sometimes make flashcards with the information I need to learn. I have my friends and family quiz me with the flashcard. That is how I study.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:33 pm |
  118. j_kool

    If you want to know how to study for a test you have to pay attention. if you listen and take notes it will help you. i study for tests all the time.if youtake the time to study everything on the test will be a peice of cake.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:35 pm |
  122. Elizabeth

    When I study, I like to lie down on my bed, and hold the text book (or whatever has the information on it) over my head so I don't dose off or fall asleep. If I don't do this I will make up a song or rhyme that has to do with the information. That way during the test I can sing it. If you think my studying habits are weird, don't blame me!

    May 18, 2011 at 1:35 pm |

    I know some people hate studying and some people get parinoid with studying so they don't get enough sleep. The way I study so i do not under sleep is by is by studying for half an hour 1 night, get some sleep, and study again in the morning. Do that for 5 days and your golden.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:37 pm |
  125. Morgan

    drawing and listening to the information being read to me helps. also finding games that will work with you on the subject makes it easier to think of when your testing, because you remember a fun way to do it. Some teachers already know some of these types of sites, kids just need to ask.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:48 pm |
  126. Emily

    Many students (including me) hate studying and tend to loose focus easily. I'm an active learner who studies by jumping rope or cartwheeling while I am being quized.

    May 18, 2011 at 1:59 pm |
  127. Teeknow

    I do what everybody else does, but I pay attention to spelling. Also, I reread the correct answers. An apple helps too!

    My studying thing: I go to the nearest library. No distractions 😉 Its quiet and I can consentrate. I usually just read my book and make notes of the important things.

    May 18, 2011 at 2:02 pm |
  129. Devin

    I think studying is important especially if you take spanish what i do to study is make flash cards of a word or math problem and work it out it is really helpful to me

    May 18, 2011 at 2:08 pm |
  132. Chloe

    The way I study for a test is i listen to a song in my room and make the lyrics into a song with the answers. I'm in my room and it's quit.
    For math I study the answers and sing them in my head.

    I study for tests by studying with my mom.Once we reviewed it once or twice she asks me questions on the test.If I got one wrong,she tells me the answer and makes me study it.That is how I study.

    You can have a game of basketball. 4 teams. Here's how it works: You get the ball and a word, you either have to shoot and make the shot or you can choose to spell the word. For every shot made you get 5 points and for every word answered you get 5 points also. Shot should be made at free point line.

    May 18, 2011 at 3:20 pm |

    While I do my homework, I put on the music videos that I tevo in the morning before I go to school. Though I don't actually watch the videos, I still listen to the music. I find that it helps me concentrate more than when I work in silence.

    Before exams, look back on the topics you learned and when you learned them. Think about those days and what event happened that you remember, maybee someone made you laugh or that was the day you got a good grade on that one test or maybee even, we did a play on that topic. Then when you go to take your exams and "there it is" that question you remember oh yah, that was the day...

    I watch movies while studying. It helps entertain me while studying. I have a hard time concentrating on boring things like many people. I always come up with excuses for myself to get out of it. When I watch movies, I am entertained and am getting the information that I need.

    I also often listen to music when reading.

    May 18, 2011 at 4:10 pm |
  152. Muelsam

    I study by reading the materials I need to study lots of times until it is imprinted into my mind. Sometimes It takes hours for me to finish studying.

    May 18, 2011 at 4:10 pm |
  153. Sarah

    I go up to my bed, I get my book, and i put some music on. Instead of it distracting me, It helps me remember! I can read a lesson with music and I will remember it all week long.

    May 18, 2011 at 4:16 pm |
  154. Cornelious

    A creative way of studying is to make multiple pictures related to the topic.
    Also you could write a creative song to help you remember people and places. Any forms of studying can work if it is right for you. You just have to find the right form for you.

    May 18, 2011 at 4:16 pm |
  155. Paschal

    Studying is one of the most important things we can do during this season. With school ending soon it is important to stay focused on our work then goofing around with your friends.

  156. Kayeleigh

    What i do to study is i go to the nearest library because it is quiet and then i think of some type of game and i have the facts on little cards and each fact is worth a certain amount of spaces and i make just enough spaces that it covers the facts i need to know and i make sure there is the same ammount of spaces than on the cards and i play untill i get them all right

    May 18, 2011 at 4:20 pm |
  157. elsie

    when i study i always make sure that i don't have anything to distract me. the best way to study is to be able to focus, don't have the tv on, no radio, or cell phone. just make sure you don't get distracted, and you'll be surprised how easy it is.

    May 18, 2011 at 4:59 pm |

    If you have an iPod or an MP3, you can listen to songs that remind you of a certain subject. For example, math. Download a song that reminds you of math. When you are doing math, play that song so that you don't forget the subject. Listening to my music on my iPod helps me to do my homework and understand and remember the subject.

    May 18, 2011 at 5:25 pm |
  163. Alice

    My way of studying is stydying a book, making outputs in my folder, or studying the notes on what I needed to know. Outputs are a way my teacher makes us do a short "summary" on the day's notes, and it helps alot, because if you forgot about the subject, you can do a summary in creative ways.

    May 18, 2011 at 5:32 pm |
  164. Christina

    When I study, I say what i'm studying out loud five times in order for it to register in my brain. Sometimes I even write it out five times. After that it sticks in my head and I do well on the tests.

    May 18, 2011 at 5:44 pm |
  165. Elaine

    I take notes, and pretend to be the teacher. I teach to an invisible class. Then all the information all pops in to my brain.
    it brings me straight A's all the time.

    May 18, 2011 at 5:59 pm |

  168. Kimberly

    when i want to study for something ,like my final semester exams i study by hearing music wich helps alot and i also use flash cards that help remember definitions or other things i need to remember.There is many other ways for me to study, but by hearing music is the easiest way for me to study for any upcoming tests.

    May 18, 2011 at 6:07 pm |
  169. Andrew

    I study by making flash cards and revewing important sheets then let someone quiz me. Studying is very helpful!!

    I cover all of bedroom walls with paper, and i jot down everything i know for the topic I'm studying for, and repeat the same thing on every wall. For my Africa Map Test I drew and labeled the entire continent of Africa on every wall

    May 18, 2011 at 6:15 pm |
  171. Star

    I have a milk crate that I attach balloons with trivia question in them, each question depending what topic I am studying for. I throw darts at them and test myself with the questions in each balloon.

    May 18, 2011 at 6:18 pm |
  172. Sarah

    My studying method is listening to the music that reminds me of the test then I dance like crazy in my room saying the answers five or seven times.

    May 18, 2011 at 6:31 pm |
  173. Raquel

    I study by reading my notes over and over again and think of the possible questions my teacher will ask then I act like im answering them then I look over one last time then im ready.

    May 18, 2011 at 6:46 pm |
  174. Ludwig

    Yes, I do. I always take extremelly detailed class notes in every class. I also make sure to get many hours of sleep so I don't fall asleep in class.

    May 18, 2011 at 6:47 pm |
  175. Claudia

    Never listen to you favorite music! People say it helps, but in the long run you will be singing the lyrics, and not have time to study! Go to the quitest place in your house, if you don't like how quiet it is, put on "nature noises" such as an ocean or a forest. That always seems to calm the nerves.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:04 pm |
  176. Olivia

    I study by wearing scented lotion. I read over the notes while wearing the lotion and I wear the lotion while taking my test. The smell of rasberries always helps me.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:07 pm |
  177. Ivy

    I usually listen to music, because I intend to get distracted when its just so quiet.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:10 pm |
  178. Logan

    I've found that listening to music helps me alot when I'm studying. It clears my head, helps me focus on what I'm doing, and I tend to remember the material better. I even listen to different genres of music for each different class I'm studying for.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:12 pm |
  179. Carlee

    When I study, I usually make fashcards. First I'll go over my study guide, Then I'll look at my Flash cards. A Tip: NEVER stay up to late studying. If I do, my brain starts getting overloaded and I can't keep track on whatever I'm studying.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:12 pm |
  180. Liannah

    When i usually study i keep a bug or somekind of an insect on my head. This helps me focuse alot!

    May 18, 2011 at 7:18 pm |
  181. john

    i always listen to a song that i know that will get stuck in my head and study so when i think of the song i think of what i was studying

    Music helps me study but regular book studying fills my brain and makes me think to hard.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:24 pm |
  183. Paige

    I study for just about every test I have. I alway's study for tests at school whenever I get a chance. Even though I study at school and at home I still do ok on the tests but; I would like to get an A or B on my tests. I still think our teachers should give us more time in class to study for our test instead of 5-10 minutes, I think we should have at least 20 minutes to study because; many of us students forget to take home our books and papers to help us studies.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:26 pm |
  184. Shanae

    What i do to study is use note cards. I have another person with me quiz me so I can hear it, and see it. It is a very effective way for me and others.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:27 pm |
  185. Juliette

    I like to study by going over and over something until you have it

    May 18, 2011 at 7:27 pm |

    study never give up, keep on studying and you will ace the tests

    May 18, 2011 at 7:28 pm |

    I am a visual learner so like to write down what I want to study, then I can remember it.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:29 pm |
  188. Shanae

    I study on parts of a lesson that I may not know from memory. I take little bits and peices and study one section at a time. This helps me so it is not over filling my brain with information that I may already know.

    May 18, 2011 at 7:32 pm |
  189. Sara

    I like to memorize my notes while jumping on a trampoline. You read it then say it over and over again while jumping you get to have fun and study!

    I write down my feelings before an exam. There is a study that says you will do better.I also study the states CSO's for standarized tests.

    May 18, 2011 at 8:37 pm |
  192. Lili

    When I study, I pretend that I am a teacher. I go in my room and start reciting the information as a teacher would. Another way I study is I make "doodles" or quick drawings of the information I am studying. So whenever I come to that question on the test the picture pops in my head.

    May 18, 2011 at 8:48 pm |
  193. Bacteria

    I'm not good at studying, so I ask my friends to help me study and I take a lot of notes to help me. I also listen to my Ipod to keep me focus while studying and it really helps me a lot.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:04 pm |
  194. Arturo

    When I have a test I will study hard and do my best on it. I will sleep early to get as maost energy and to not feel sleepy in class. And i will study super hard before doing anything on the test.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:05 pm |

    what i do to study is make my family play a fun game that has something to do with what i'm studying for my other strategy is to just put the book in front of me and my mom makes little inspirational notes on sticky notes and she sticks them all around my room in the text book and on my desk you just need to have a positive attitude and rest thats the best kind of studying good luck don't worry everyone thats going to take a test will do great!!!

    My favorite way to study is to use my ipod's app for flashcards and that way my flashcards are portable such as on the bus, at home, or at school.

    What i do to study for my exams is i have a parent or friend go over the questions with me and whatever i get wrong i make a flash card out of and study it in randome order.

    I heard that having a perfume or burning candles while you study, then wearing the perfume or having the smell when you take the test will help a lot. Scientific studies have proven this, the sense of smell holds the strongest for memory.

    For me, the best way of studying is always by just starting to do the practical work immediately and observing what others do. It applies to every kind of study. When it comes to studying a course, i'm trying to solve the problem on my own first, if i can't do that, then i will come directly to the examples of solving that type of problem. I never go through the text book to see the theory first, that's so slow and hard to connect the theory with practical job immediately. When it comes to opening business, i will never study business in school, i will just trying to open my business right now, when problem occur, i will think a way out or observing how others solve it perfectly.

    I usually give myself some passwords on each word or subject. If I was trying to remember that Potassium's symbol is K, I think, "I don't like bananas, but mon-keys do, and the Key to this answer is K."

    In the begging of the school year my teacher Mrs.Rush gave students a paper called 20 ways to practice we used it to study for spelling but for me it also works for other sujects:):):)

    May 18, 2011 at 9:47 pm |
  203. Mariel

    What works for me is making flash cards of what i'm studying. Whether it's vocabulary or essay questions, it seems to help me study efficiently!

    May 18, 2011 at 9:50 pm |
  204. Gracelynn

    I go over the problems that I got wrong on the homework. This works because, if you got them wrong, they are probably the hard problems and teachers will put the same kind on the test.

    May 18, 2011 at 9:59 pm |
  205. Kaylee

    For my grade we have a class blog so I always make flash cards on the computer and my teacher lets us print them to take home. I also use a notebook with with my flashcards and write the important notes in my notebook because sometimes my science teacher lets all of us use notes during our tests. 🙂

  206. Seth

    I like to use word association whenever i'm studying. It really helps to have something to remember it by. Plus it helps you remember something for a long period of time, instead of just for an exam. Also, most people get some what freaked out before a test or an exam. I just relax and take my time. Don't think so much while you're testing. Let the answers just come to you.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:29 pm |
  207. Lauren

    For me, when it comes to studying i do NOT need any more distractions so i turn off everything and put my phone away. What helps me study is writing down all the information on flash cards. Its useful plus when you write down the information it helps me remember what i just wrote. I also underline key words or ideas to help me remember a word, event, or phrase.

    May 18, 2011 at 10:39 pm |
  208. James

    I actually would study by making problems to get them correct. Say in English you have to spell "actually". It sounds different, but take it apart to make it seem easier. It just works easier than trying to sound it out.

    I am a very bad study person I HATE!!!! Studying but i find if you do something else while you are studying it really dose help the brain!

  210. Penelope

    Before a test, I read the book. That is the best way to study, because all the information is right there! We take notes as a class, but I don't really use those, because the book has all the information.

  211. joey

    hey i think that creative studyng on your own is fun because usally when you ask for a hint on studying people say get a good nights sleep but im super tired of that so lets stick to creative studying on our own.

    May 19, 2011 at 7:25 am |
  212. Taylor

    I find it really easy to memorize what Im trying to learn if I can make it into a peom or rap. Also, I look for similarities in spelling to help me with them, for example M- onks live in M-onistaries. They both start with m.

    if you are studying words make up flashcards or make tabel for multiplucatino in math its simple. But if that doesnt work go to your teacher and ask for some advice on studying....
    who ever reads this GOOD LUCK on your test

    I am home schooled, but I think everyone has there own method of studying.My method on homework I do the test then I take a five minute break when I come back and check it. If I have a time limited test after I finish the test I do it again.

    May 19, 2011 at 8:04 am |
  215. Caitlin

    i someties get stress a lot when i think about big tests in school. what i do is i have my parents or friends ask me questions that might be on my test. if i get it right i get a treat like chocolate but i can't eat it until i finish studing. If i get a question wrong then i have to give back one of my treats i got for answering a question write.

  216. Mollay

    Listen to music while you are studying! Some people say its distracting, but I think it blocks out other distractions. Also, try to study in your room with the door closed, or some other private place, so you will be less likely to be disturbed.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:14 am |

    Reward yourself. 30 minutes of hard studying, and you can let yourself do 30 minutes of video games or whatever.

    i always listen to a song that i know will get stuck in my head and then i study so when i think of the song i think of what i was studying

    I go online and letterally get taught again the go to a family member and they quiz me on how much i know.

    Well i listen to music while i study because the music calms me down and helps me consentrate better.

    When I am studying vocabulary I like to make flash cards one side with the definition and the other with the answer.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:53 am |

    I study by sitting at the kitchen table for a 1/2 hour everyday to make sure my work is done right.

  223. Alexis

    My special studying technique would have to be making a beat, then put all of your notes into that beat you just made. When you have made that beat just remember that beat on the day of your test, and the beat will have the answers to your test.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:54 am |
  224. Jasper

    I don't have any study methods. I just pay attention in class and hope to get a good grade.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:55 am |
  225. Emily

    i usually just have my mom quiz me on the things i am going to be tested for. if she cant help i will just keep going over it again and again in my head until i get it. sometimes i it is a vocabulary test i will look for key words in the definition and then remember that. doing that helps me remember what the definition is.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:55 am |
  226. Natalie

    I think the tradition way of studying is ok because it's true that you need to get enough sleep and all the other things. Listening to music can be one of the ways to help you study. When i study i like to put some music on because it helps me concentrate more but sometimes i get carried away.

    May 19, 2011 at 9:55 am |
  227. faith

    Well i like to study by taking my study notes down to the beach, sit down and relax , the sound of the waves crashing onto the beach makes me feel nice and calm and it's easier to study.

    just study and do not stay up all night and eat a good brackfest like eggs and ham do all of the study guide

  229. Kelley

    Don't study at all–when a question comes that you're not sure about, you just have to focus all you mind power on it until you enter a different universe where there is all the answers. (Note: This only works for some people).

    I always inscribe educators meaningful articulation of lesson., in exam season, I concentrate and reiterate that until I memorized.

    If its a spelling test i attatch letters to hola hoops and throw them into my pool. Then i jump through them to spell the words. Its so much fun because it doesn't even feel like im studying.

    i can always study all the time before i have a finels and test so pleas study alot and every day.

  233. Chrystine

    I thinking studying is very important on many scales there is Getting A A+ On the next test or refreshing your mid on things u forgot or a long life lesson for your children or there is when u get older u look back and reamber the past as the good old days 😀

  234. jenah

    I have found that the sleeping thing doesn't make a difference for me and neither does the food one either. What really helps me for a test is being comfortable. When i dress uncomfortably I notice i get annoyed with fabrics that make me itch or clothes that are too tight. It becomes a distraction and it gets harder to focus. On test days I've learned to wear loose and light cloths to keep the distraction at a minimum. Also, I have to remember to breath. Some times if I'm too stressed about a question I'll forget to breath. The last thing you want to do during a test is pass out. (unless you are looking for an excuse not to have to take the test then.)

    May 19, 2011 at 1:18 pm |
  235. Riley

    I dont study unless i have no idea what the teacher was talking about during class, but if i understand exactlly what she is talking about i trusts that she gives me all of the info. i need to make a good grade on my tests!

    May 19, 2011 at 1:27 pm |
  236. Haven

    In my geography class we have to memorize countries and at the end of the year we have a world exam. Throughout the year we do different countries at a time. My teacher helps us create dances and songs to remember things. For example actions go along with how the countries look. It is close to the end of the year so we are on full dance mode! It is a lot of fun and a great way to study.

    May 19, 2011 at 1:43 pm |
  237. lily :)

    i think a good way to study is just traditional flashcards. Making the flashcards as well as studying them helps kids to learn the subject.
    Another way I use is to post the information an sticky notes and hang them in places that i will see them throughout the day.

    May 19, 2011 at 1:47 pm |
  238. Taylor

    In math our way of getting ready for big tests is take a couple of quizzes before hand and then we go over all the problems in class so we know what we do wrong then we take the same test again and most of us do better the second time. In geography class we play a game called extra credit elimination. We study a map and with coutries and their capitols in different regions of the world then we put a blank map up on the smart board and we are in our rows where our desks are we go up 1 at a time and try to say all the names of the countries and their capitols if we get the answer wrong we get a strike what ever row wins we get extra credit for the test so it encourages us to study!!

    May 19, 2011 at 1:49 pm |
  239. Loren

    When I know I have a difficult quiz or test coming up after school I go and talk to my teachers. They sometimes help me one on one or give me useful information. My teachers are really good about giving extra information. You should just take time to ask questions. It helps in the long run!

    May 19, 2011 at 1:49 pm |
  240. Taylor

    I look over what were studying at my house then my dad takes my notes and asks me questions about the subject. Its a great way to study and i always do really good on my tests after i do that!

    May 19, 2011 at 1:51 pm |
  241. Kat

    At lunch my friends and I go over our subjects at the lunch table and then before we take a test the night before we call eachother and ask eachother questions over the phone. We do really well on our tests!

    May 19, 2011 at 1:54 pm |
  242. Carter

    First I come home from school and have a healthy snack while studying flashcards. Next I read through the chapter again or my notes. By that time I am getting tired so I go on a run or get excersize. It clears my mind and gives me time to rethink about the stuff I was studying.

    May 19, 2011 at 1:55 pm |

    when i study i listen to my music and than i study good for a test

    I am a teacher and I like to help my students by doing fun review games. This way they can be active and participate in the class. My students enjoy doing this and gives them a chance to get out of their desk.

    i thing get alot of sleep and study with friends and maybe quiz each other also always look over and do your study guide

    When I study I listen to music, but the only way to get good grades on a test is to think hard and know the material and don't stress!!!

    May 19, 2011 at 4:08 pm |
  247. Jessi :)

    What I do is find a quiet spot, and review all of the stuff the test is on. I usually study a little bit every night in periods of 15 to 20 minutes or so. Also, I get a good nights rest so i am awake am ready for the test! Good Luck! i hope this helps

    May 19, 2011 at 4:13 pm |
  248. Amber

    When I study I sit in my room or lay on the floor with my favorite songs. I write things I don't get down over and aver again and I eat A LOT of Tic Tacs during the test! 🙂

    May 19, 2011 at 4:14 pm |
  249. Courtney

    When I study, I like to do something active in a room. Sometimes, it will be something simple, like tapping a pencil to the tables, so I could to it during a test. Or I might study by putting what I need to study into a song. Or I just study normally by sitting at a table and looking at the information. One weird way that I think might be my special way is by taking some information and turn it into an imaginary friend (most of the time a person) and talk to it and play with it to help me learn the information.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:19 pm |
  250. Sarah

    I turn on Christian music and find a nice place where no one will bother me. If I have a lot of homework I will take 15 minute breaks after a long period of time. Maybe have a snack or read a good book.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:23 pm |
  251. Lily

    The way I study is I turn on some music to help me get in the study mood. It helps me get into the study and makes it more fun to study about. I also might find a comfortable spot in my house, then get a snack and a drink then it seems to make the studying seem less stressful and less hard. I also might have someone at home quiz me and it helps me a lot. That’s some ways I like to study.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:25 pm |
  252. Maddie

    I have two ways I like to study. First, I read all the info. while listening to my music in a quiet room by myself. The music helps me concentrate and focus on what I’m studying. The second way is to be quizzed by someone but while I'm being quizzed I have to be doing something active at the same time and that helps me remember.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:28 pm |
  253. Kylee

    When I study, I like to make whatever I’m studying into a song. Making up songs comes easily to me, for instance, I had to make a song up to remember where all of the accent marks go on my Spanish test, and, I aced it. I did that for a math term too. So make up a song to your favorite tune and just change the words!

    May 19, 2011 at 4:30 pm |
  254. marissa

    when i study i make study cards.Like now with kids an teens starting exams i review before we start the test and thats how i remember. escpially for exams .Or what i do sometimes is i get all my freinds together and make study group we usally go to the libuary or a freinds house to study and quiz each other

    May 19, 2011 at 4:31 pm |
  255. ryen

    When I study I do my studying the morning before I take the test exam or whatever it may be that way everything is fresh on my head. I also think that singing is a good way to remember things and when you put your answers in a song it becomes a lot easier. The methods that have been listed above also sound like they could work maybe sometime before my next test I’ll have to try one.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:31 pm |
  256. jacob

    To study I just read what I need and take a 10 minute nap and then I have my mom test me and i will get all of them correct. Also I go to bed early so I dont forget what I learned.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:34 pm |
  257. Kristian

    I study with my friends and we play games to help us study. We have some teachers play with us and it helps us out.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:35 pm |
  258. Jenny

    I listen to music while i study because it helps me. It helps me because i enjoy listening to music so when I`m doing someone I enjoy with something i need to do to i enjoy doing it too. After I`m done studying I get someone like my sister or mom to test me and I end up doing good.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:40 pm |
  259. Jordin

    I also listen to music while i study. Or I make up a catchy song to remeber.. I also sometimes look at it for 10 minutes, then ill do something else for another 10 minues, and just repeate that process. It really helps.

    May 19, 2011 at 4:47 pm |
  260. Alyssia

    I usually listen to my mp3 player or hum my favorite song in my head,it helps to get my school work done when i get home from school.It works for me.

  263. madeline

    I just try to cram all the important stuff and then go for the details.I keep reading and memorizing the study guide or what ever I need until the second before the test or presentation.Also I take notes because my teachers wants our class to learn the skill and it helps.(Flash cards work too!)

    May 19, 2011 at 8:25 pm |
  264. stephen

    use index cards hole punch one side and put a key ring throught the hole and attach it to your belt or backpack.then everytime your bored in another class and the teacher catches you just say im studying.

    May 19, 2011 at 10:35 pm |
  265. Pazazzz

    Ya do what you got to do. Its much easier cause if you sing the tune but diffrent lycirs it would help you memrise cause well YOU FAVORITE SONG!!!BUt i m not sure about drawing<3

    I like to take notes while studying. I can remember the most important parts of the lesson.

    May 20, 2011 at 9:34 am |
  267. Miranda

    When preparing for a test, I review the vocabulary for each lesson. I also look at my notes along with those vocabulary words.

    May 20, 2011 at 9:36 am |
  268. Madison

    I listen to music to and then if I think of the song, I can remember the picture or words I was looking at during that song. I'll study in my bed at night, leave the book open to me, leave the light on and for some really odd reason, I remember the material better in the morning.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:39 am |
  269. Stephen

    I think that studying is very important. Studying helps you prepare for your test, and do a good job. People who don't study do worse than those who do study. If you don't study, you will not have lots of success in life. I usually just study with my book.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:42 am |
  270. selena

    I mostly try to study. But i usually just try to study five minutes before the exam so that i retain information better. It's not the best solution, but it helps. And I also look around my classroom and try to find things that will help me remember what I was studying.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:43 am |
  271. Kira

    When I study, I use my notes and then make up a short song that has to do with what i study. I play the song over and over in my head, until it sticks. Then, the next day, I think of the song and it helps me remember my notes.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:47 am |
  272. Allison

    Studying has never been my strong point. It is hard for me to get focused when there are so many distractions. Even if the t.v. is off all I have to do is press a button and its on. Or if I'm at my desk I still have a computer right there. So what I usually do is go to my front yard where we have a big tree. Out there there is not very many things I can do because I get my phone taken away for homework. I sit under it and study. I listen to music at a low volume and I make up rhymes for the answers. The next day when I have the test I remember the little rhymes that I made. I am a bette student since I found a "study spot".

    May 20, 2011 at 10:48 am |
  273. Ashlyn

    When I study i usually listen to music. I always study before bed and draw examples on my notes so i learn it better. In the morning i also study. I usally go to bed early but i never have breakfast . When i get my tests back i usally do good on them.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:48 am |
  274. Sabrina

    I study over my notes and sometimes I dont get the grade I always want on tests. So I think we should study more. A good way to study is to study with a friend and have your friend go over the test with you so you can get a good grade on a test.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:49 am |
  275. Robyn

    I dont normally study but when i do i just review over my book with my mom and dad i dont do any of the things like it said in the post but im not very creative when it comes to studying . I just normally do the basics of studying. I just read over my book and have my parents or brother quiz me thats really it

    May 20, 2011 at 10:51 am |
  276. Maria

    I think that getiing a good sleep, and getting a good breakfast are some of the things that people should do before taking an exam. Studying is the main thing you should do before an exam. I don't think that listening to music or drawing helps people prepar themselves for taking an exam. It might distract people instead of remembering what they have to study about.I know from a personal experience that if I don't have complete silence I won't be able to remember or understand the subject.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:52 am |
  277. Raeann

    Yes, I have a studying thing to help me stay focused. I go into a quiet room, and turn on my stereo and listen to music and review my books and notes. I earn good grades by doing this, but i can only do it when i'm by myself and it has to be quiet. Especially getting lots of sleep, eating a good breakfast. I think others as well should do something somewhat to this to keep them focused and do a good job.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:54 am |
  278. Tori

    When I study, I do a little bit of studying everyday. I also make sure I am in a quiet place by myself. If there is any noise I don't do very well. I am known not to block out sounds. I hear every little sound. As long as I am by myself and do a little bit of studying every day, I do very well on tests or big exams.

    May 20, 2011 at 10:54 am |
  279. Hanna

    When I study I ususally listen to Led Zeppelin or Foghat. So I am really pumped to study ,so when I take my test or exam I just think of rock & roll and I feel confident to take my test!
    I LOVE ROCK & ROLL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    May 20, 2011 at 10:56 am |
  280. Cristian

    I think that listening to music is good for you and helps you concentrate on whatever work you are working on. It also matters what song you are listening to. If it is a rock song, it helps only a few people focus on work.If it is a slow song, people would focus on the song more than the homework or whatever work you are working on.

    I have many things to do to study. I always make sure im in a quiet place were i can listen to music. Also i always chew gum and use flash cards. My books,paprers, and notes are a big help.

    My study method is, I study at night before I go to bed. I also study during studyhall. I dont do much but i do enough to get a good grade. I dont do anything speical I just usally study before i go to bed. i also study with a friend.

  283. Maria

    Yes, I have some type if studying thing to help me stay focused. The way I stay focused is I study sometimes before a big test. I eat a good breakfast and before I leave home I get my ipod so I could listen to my music on the way to school. We are not suppsed to listen to music during school but I always or sometimes listen to music outside for lunch to help me stay focused for the next class.

    A studying method that works well is studying and then having someone quiz you. That way you never forget the information. Watching TV is a very bad idea. It never works and you can't possibly study. Use any method that works for you.

  285. Michael

    I think studying is very important because if you are failing and you get a very high A on the test it helps your grade so you can move on and pass that class.My studying methode is that every day after school I sit at my kitchen table and study for an hour and thirty minutes.If i have to study for a big test i study over and over and then I have my mom quiz me over it.

    i think studing an finding methodes are very good ways to help you in class and at home to become a very good educated kid me my self i have no methodes of studing i just get what i have to get done an do my best on test and homework.i also think it is way good to studie for who ever is doing it an keep up to it an do your best

  287. Bella

    YEAH i do the same thing that guy does. i listen to music while studying and when i take the test i think of the songs i listened to and it relaxes me. insted of being all nervious and freakin out and probably doing bad on the test. so i personaly think that listening to music is a good way to help you study.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:47 am |
  288. Bethany

    When I study I like to take home everything that I need. Then I will look over it just like 5 times. Then make flash cards with my mom. She will help me study for like 2 hours. Then in the morring I will study for 30 min. It helps me alot.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:47 am |
  289. Grey

    I have a way to study. What i do is when i get home i hang out for like one hour with my friends . Then after that hour i start studing for like an hour and thirty mintes then when i study i listen to my music. When I have the test come up the songs that i was listening to comes into my head and then i remember what the book said. It helps me study but it all depends on the person and how they study.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:48 am |
  290. Frances

    Music won't help you. What about studying with your friends. But you should not talk to each other. Remember to keep silence. After finish studying separately, take exams. Make questions for each other.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:49 am |
  291. Ashley

    What i do when i study is put music on low.It helps me study more better.I have mom read over some of the ?'s. I Get slept that night. & I study in the morning for a lilttle bit. And i eat breakfeast in the morning on test days.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:50 am |
  292. Lesley

    I listen to music when I study cause it helps me think a little more what im working on. I really dont like to study, but if I listen to music it makes it more fun. Alot of teens listen to music so if they tried it mabe thay would pass the quiz or test. I think thats a good way to study.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:51 am |
  293. cheese

    When I have a big test that i have to study for I listen to a lot of music. Sometimes i watch TV , txt or jst keep mi hands occupied. If I can keep something else going on then i remember everything that I read, looked at, or heard. If I'm in class i doodle odd cartoons, or random scribles. If I dont have anything to doodle on i click mi pens or tap on the desk, on mi leg, or tap mi foot on the floor.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  294. marissa

    when i study i need to click my pen. when i study i need to multi task. i can't just sit there and just do my homework or study. i have to listen to music. my mom tells me i need to stop doing that but its how i study.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  295. Devin

    poeple do need to study. A good time to study is right before bed it helps because you will dream about it and it will be stuck in your head and you might pass. And another time is right before the test so that it is fresh in your head. when you do study you need to study for an hour to two hours.

    May 20, 2011 at 11:54 am |
  296. leslie

    people when they study for somthing they need somthing to occupied . if they are not occupied they can not study right . some people like to listen to music when they are studying . like i need to hav somthing to chew on somthig. if i dont chew on anything i cant thing strait .

    I think this would be a good idea for our gov't to get more money and less people would drive so air emmisions from our cars would be less so we would have less air pollution

  298. Anthony

    What I do is I have my Dad read the chapter (After I Have) then at random times he asks me a question catching me off guard. It really helps you focus on reading the chapter and not just skimming it.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:23 pm |
  299. Rochel

    What i do is try to take good notes and think of a song and put the lyrics as my notes. It makes it so much easier to retain what i have learned. Also I eat pleanty of food before and drink enough water to keep me hydrated. I won't review notes right before the test because I forget it all very easily. My study habits include rest, food, and good studying.

  301. Makayla

    I think that listening to music while you study helps. I think it helps because it keeps me consontrated and helps me not get distracted. I dont think sleeping next to your textbook helps people. I dont think studying with the TV on is bad if you can study while you watch TV. If it distracts you then you should turn it off.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:37 pm |
  302. Kimberly

    When it comes to studying, my mom makes me turn off my phone and go in my room to study. My chair in my room is the best thing for me to study in. I think more clearly and absorb it more. Some music helps me out with studying because it helps me focous more on my work. an i usually study for an hour or so in order for me wanting to get a good grade on that paper.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:41 pm |
  303. Jeff

    Music and Reading, to me i read and do my work better while listening to music. I dont know what it is but it keeps me from talking and since you cant hear anyone else you cant get distracted.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:41 pm |
  304. Juewl

    I have a creative studing way. I listen to music when I study. It helps me think. I also like to be in a room where I am by myself and it is quite so I think. I like to snack when I study because it gets my brain working. I study in the morning too before I go to school so that the information is fresh in my brain. Its good to eat a good breakfat before you go to school because it gives you energy and helps you think.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:44 pm |
  305. Brooklyn

    When I study I usally have my music on because it kinda helps me understand what I'm studying.Or I go to a room that is really quiet and go over what i need to Study.When I have a big test the next day I go to sleep early and I go over the answers in my head when i'm sleeping.It never really helps because i'm not that smart to remember. The next morning i go over the notes again and again. till the test.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:45 pm |
  306. Kylee

    I usually don't study. But when I do, I just study my notes. Sometimes I rewrite them so that I'm familiar with the information. Sometimes I'll just try to remember what we learned on. It works. But when a huge, 100 point test comes along, I'll definitely hit the books. It doesn't always help though. If you overstudy, you'll be anxious, if you understudy, you'll fail. Getting a good night's rest and eating a huge breakfast doesn't always help for me. But it may work for you.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:46 pm |
  307. Mark

    I think that when it comes to studying the traditional studying is fine for most tests. The new ways I guess for certian people but intell they have been tested to work stick to the normal studies. Eating breakfast helps and I think the music thing would help but the sleeping by your book will not. The pictures might help if your mind works that way . I think it depends on who you are and what your personality is.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:47 pm |
  308. russell

    Well i think it is stupid to sleep next to your books because you have to read the books.Because regular studying is hard but more effecient.Than a stupid hipy belief.We live in the 21st centery!People have to get to the books not sleep and fail classes.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:48 pm |
  309. spencer

    What i would do if your teacher told you about the exams ahead of time I would study alittle bit a night. also eat healthy the night before (lots of fiber or cheerios.) then get a good nighi=t sleep and wake upearlier andstudy some more soit is more fresh in your mind. what ever you do dont cheat because it can skrew up a resime or somthing i dont know....

    May 20, 2011 at 12:49 pm |
  310. Jake

    I study at home or in study hall. It is good to study before a test or every day because it helps you get good grades. I try to go to bed early before tests because i can concentrate better. I also try to study between classes. I try to finish the school year with good grades.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:49 pm |
  311. Marcelino

    When I study I usually go into the same spot and study. Also when I study I turn off the TV and study in plain quietness. when I study I study at knight, I dont no why but it helps me on test and quizes. I think that if you study in a spot or somwhere that helps you study on test, then you should keep on.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:51 pm |
  312. Karl

    I almost never study but of coarse when a big test is comming up i try to study as much as I can. I always get a good night sleep and a good breakfast. I try to remember but i usually cant. I agree that listening to music while studying helps montoniously. I believe that listening to music helps everything.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:54 pm |
  313. Tice

    I think eat a healthy breakfeast would help you for a test but, i think music helps me to remember alot.Like I was listening to a song before i took my test and the song helped me to remember some of the answers to the test.I got an 92% on my test about the wars and i kinda like that way to study.

    May 20, 2011 at 12:58 pm |
  314. Zane

    I usually think of one of my favorite songs and change the words to help me remember. Also if I stare at the book long enough my mind can remember what I have seen and then I remember on the test.

    May 20, 2011 at 1:54 pm |
  315. Laurel

    I don't study all that much: I just pay close attention in class. When I do study, I don't study for a long time. I just scan through the material. I try to associate the word with something I will remember it by. Sometimes I will study before we take the test if I am not sure I know everything that the test is based on.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:53 pm |
  316. Jake

    Yes, I do have a studying method. Whenever I'm studying, or memorizing information, I go to a certain room in my house and pick something out in that room to remember the information when I'm taking the test.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm |
  317. Kaelyn

    I think that it doesnt matter how u study. You could just guess and u could still do great, but i dont recommend that. Study when u can and you should do fine. So I dont think it matters what ways u use to study u can do anything u want to study it doenst matter. Just do whatever gets you through testing.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm |
  318. Louise

    I'll study the night before and during study hall, unless it's an easy quiz or test i'll study either during study hall or the night before. I sometimes watch tv when I study because it doesn't really distract me. Also because I can't miss the new episodes of NCIS, which are on a lot. But besides that I don't have any 'creative ways' of studying. Sometimes I don't study at all.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm |
  319. Keagan

    I've never really had a method, but these do sound like some good methods. Usually when I study I like it quiet though. It seem I can fit more into my head when I'm not thinking about other things. Well if I had to say anything I enjoy studying in my room with my cat Mert. It helps me alot to be in silence with Mert by my side.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm |
  320. Kurstin

    Not really. Sometimes I just know but usually it ends up to a lucky guess game on most of my tests. I am pretty lucky though, because I didn't flunk seventh grade. I usually do last minute studying and try to remember for the few minutes it takes to do the test. Sadly, my memory is terrible. I am not the person to ask because I almost never study.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:58 pm |
  321. Brenden

    My only study method is studying before I go to bed. I only study for like 5 minutes. I don't really like studying. For some tests I don't think it would matter how much you study. If you understand the class well enough, you don't really need to study that much. Oh, my name is Brenden. I'm cool.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm |
  322. Snooki

    Studying has never been easy for me. I have trouble remembering all the things i have studied. I sometimes listen to music while i study, but that never helps either. What helps me most is studying with a friend. Its always nice to have someone to have fun with while you study.

    May 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm |
  323. Sammy

    It is hard for me to pay attention in class, friends and stuff, so turning everything off when I study helps with the disractions. I usually sit somewhere where nobody can bother me, or distract me. Math is the hardest to study, so I just go to the back of the book and do some of the Practice Questions. English, Science, and Social Studies, all just depend on what you put into it.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
  324. Hadley

    when i am going to take at lot of tests at the same time, I schedule my time with breaks. I might read my math notes and then go jump on the trampoline. or i might go for a walk. Then when i come back, I am relaxed and ready to tackle the books. it also helps to chew minty gum or wear lemony perfume when studying. These scents help keep your mind focused and awake. And wearing them for the test could trigger a memory.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
  325. Jim

    No.but i do listen to music while I do my homework. And it does help in a way.I do think it is cool how that person can draw to visualize the materials she was using. However, i would not be able to do that!!!! There are lots of interesting ways to study.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm |
  326. Ken

    I listen to music when i study. Then sing the song I listened to during the test so i can think im just studying. When i take test i wear my lucky hair-tie. I know that it is supersticious but my hair-tie seems to work for me. These are some fun was to study, or help you pass your test.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm |
  327. Barbie

    If you make a song or a rhyme about what you're studying it makes it a whole lot easier to study. By the time you listen to a song once or twice you already have it memorized! Or you can act out what your learning it is easier to remember . Its a fun and easy way to study!

    May 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm |
  328. Rashel

    What I do when I study is when I get close to a test or final exam, I study once the day before and once right before the test. While I study I turn on some music to block out all the other noise around me. This in turn helps me concentrate. Another thing I do is I study one subject and then turn to another subject every five minutes. This will keep my mind going so I don't get bored.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:03 pm |
  329. MO

    No, i dont have a special method . And i can see how it could help other people. I think listening to music distracts people and they would rather listen to music than do their homework. Obviously i could not multi task . There is many other ways to study.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:05 pm |
  330. raphiel

    I dont really study and i sleep about 10 hours a night. It would be awesome to play video games and absorb your books words. It would be cool to be a person who remembers everything they ever hear. I do take a lot of notes in class. Music seems to help.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:05 pm |
  331. Jade

    I have many different was to study for tests or quizzes... My favorite way is to use flash cards. I also like to have my brother quiz me after i pre-study for the questions. I've never tried sleeping with a book to help absord the information....but i will have to try that sometime

    May 20, 2011 at 3:45 pm |
  332. Morgan

    What I do to study is copy my notes again. I just read over the notes i wrote and then I copy them onto a fresh sheet of paper...then I study my new notes... That way my notes are neater and since I wrote it again I can remember more than I could before.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:46 pm |
  333. Gabriella

    The way i study is by listening to music. I also study by having somebody quiz me after I pre-study for the test or quiz. It really helps do that because, it helps me pass the quiz. It also helps me absorb the information I need. After i wake up in the morning I do it all over again. I do that so I can pass the test or quiz. To me it makes it easier to pass.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:48 pm |
  334. Taylor

    When I study, I don't study right before the test when time is given to us. I have no idea why, but it makes me forgot. Usually when I am studying, I repeat little parts at a time, and sometimes I draw pictures...

    May 20, 2011 at 3:49 pm |
  335. kiersten

    When i study, sometimes i listen to music and other times, i turn on the t.v. just for the sound of it. It lets me kinda forget about what imma doing and helps me study and remember things that i learn better. Someyimes i even go to my room and study because it is quieter than when i study upstaires in my living room.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:50 pm |
  336. Tegan

    I like your staff member listen to music while studying and doing homework because when i think of the song while taking the quiz or test i can remember the information easier and sometimes i just study with some friends or even times by myself it just depnds on how much time i have it ALWAYS works!

    May 20, 2011 at 3:52 pm |
  337. Autumn

    What i think usually helps me study is to just look at the words then i will just keep going over them and i can memorize the order alphabetically and what they mean. Or sometimes i just remember what the concept what it meant or i just glance over my notes and i seem to memorize it. I honestly think that it does not matter how much we sleep or if we get a good nutritious breakfast. I just think that it depends on how we study or how we pay attention and open our minds to learn that concept.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:52 pm |
  338. Haylee

    I study and when i study i think of things that will help me remeber.Another thing I do is study for a little while then listen to some music then continue my study.Sometimes i like to study laying on my bed or i will type something up to help me study. But what i do alot is watch tv well i study i might get destracted but in the end i remeber more then when i began

    May 20, 2011 at 3:54 pm |
  339. lesli

    well i always listen to music whle studiing and i watch tv but i just sit there starting at the book wondering wats on tv another thing i do is carry my book around walking all around my house weird? no doest it work? no but it is fun to be triping while reading

    May 20, 2011 at 3:54 pm |
  340. Ty

    I think that is kind of rediculous. Some people listen to music and others will do different things to study. The old advice does help,but sleeping wilth your books next to you i don't thimk that is going to work at all. All you need to do is study, get good sleep, don't get distacted and do your best don't relie on luck or guessing on a test or exame. That never works.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:55 pm |
  341. joseph

    Some of my study methods are to listen to music.Somehow it helps me concentrate and memorize things.It is easy for me to get off track for what i am learning so i go into a nice desolate area to study.Also, i will sometimes take a quick nap before tudying.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:57 pm |
  342. Cassie

    i listen to music while studying or doing homework cause it helps me focus more than anything else. but i repeat one line when im on a problem. so when i test i replay the line in my head and that helps me get the problem.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:58 pm |
  343. Bobby

    I really don't have a method I just take my study guide home and read it. Then i have my mom ask me the questons that are on the study guide and see how many I get right. So then, the ones i get wrong i study.

    May 20, 2011 at 3:59 pm |
  344. Austin

    Yes,I do.I always study in study hall. I also take my books home everynight and have my mother quiz me.I also listen to music when i study. I think it helps me focus. I dont know what other kids studying habits are but i always try to do my best on a quiz or test/exam.That is what I do when i study.

    May 20, 2011 at 4:00 pm |
  345. lesli

    what i do is listen to music or watch tv but the most recent technic i have done is to walk around the block reading my book even tho i keep triping every 10 seps

    May 20, 2011 at 4:00 pm |
  346. Josh

    I literally listen to music and watch T.V. while I'm doing my homework. I also think while I'm eating.I also study harder when I need to do my chores before my studying time. I also quiz myself on the lesson. But that's my opinion.

    May 20, 2011 at 4:01 pm |
  347. allie

    wow that was interesting i tied to listen to music and it MESSES ME UP! Im like the girl i draw pictures either in my mind or on paper and thats how i study. We are only human and we dont have humungus brains. But we try.

    May 20, 2011 at 4:04 pm |
  348. yadira

    well when i get ready for a exam i go to sleep early i eat my breakfast, and study.

    May 20, 2011 at 4:07 pm |
  349. Michelle

    To study I make flash cards but i put a twist on them. I first put the word on the outside then I put the definition on the other side with a picture to help me remember the word. 🙂

    May 20, 2011 at 6:21 pm |
  350. Dalton

    I study everything well before the test and then periodically through the lesson I go through what I've learned then at the day before the test i study harder than for the rest of the unit

    May 20, 2011 at 6:33 pm |
  351. zach

    when i study i like to play a game with it or make up a little study game so that i can learn in a fun way ! it helps me not as bored when i have to study

    May 20, 2011 at 7:17 pm |
  352. Nancy

    i listen to music when i have a great song to listen to the more work i get done

    May 20, 2011 at 8:13 pm |
  353. Kember

    I think that is cool...I like to draw pictures and have somebody quiz me. My teachers make up silly movements for us to remember but those don't always seem to help. I like thinking of something or someone or words that are in or have to do to the subject. Like when i was studying a map of Africa i remembered Morocco looks kind of like a maraca, Algeria was a piece of pollen because it sounds like 'allergy', and so on.

    May 21, 2011 at 9:56 am |
  354. Calista

    My studying skill is to read the textbook and make a song throughout the chapter. I don't know why, but it helps me memorize and got me an A on my science test!

    May 22, 2011 at 2:55 am |
  355. Parker

    Generally, whenever I have a major test or quiz, I prefer to get nice and comfortable. I gather all my notes together and start studying. It helps when you are in a relaxed position, because your mind would be completely focused on studying instead of on your comfort. When you get distracted from studying, it takes away valuable time for you to learn. So, when you’re in a comfortable place, you are less likely to get distracted.

    May 22, 2011 at 2:34 pm |
  356. Betsy

    I barely study because when I do it goes in one ear and out the other. But I'm goin to try this way to see if it will work.
