When I was a student from the very beginning of education up to college, I was raised and nurtured to study longer hours and even staying late at night specially when examinations are fast approaching. It was good, but information and learning retention was very low. As a matter of fact, over 90% of what I’ve studied during my college days alone have been forgotten even some of those lessons important to my profession.
Fortunately, as I go along with life, I’ve discovered new things and ways to learn. One study finds focus and performance can be best achieve in small time chunks. This is also applicable in studying. Now, although I don’t want to go back to college, I’m always a student learning many things in various aspects in life. In my experience, the best way to learn is to do it in small chunks indeed. The information sticks a lot better and along with a few notes for important parts of what I’m learning, it’s easy to recall, and when I recall it, it sticks.
