Memory techniques: How to study for an exam

One of the biggest stresses for a student is trying to study for all his tests. Though you may try, sometimes it really is impossible to study for everything especially when its exam week and exam dates are too close together. But you can spend the limited time you have by studying more wisely. For example, ask for computer science assignment help on the Internet. Here are a few memory techniques to help you retain more information and study better for exams.

The first of many memory techniques is to engage your body as you study. It has been proven that though people remember 75 percent of what they see and 20 percent of what they hear, people retain almost 95 percent of information if it is acted out. Action is essential.

Students have been pushed to believe that caffeine helps jog the memory and brain. However, caffeine only keeps you awake, but it does not necessarily help you retain memory. One memory technique to help you recall more information faster and retain information longer is by memorizing information at a normal, relaxed state. By studying in a relaxed state allows the brain to recall information without the “distractions” of caffeine. The more comfortable and relaxed you are, the easier it is for your brain to digest information.

Another way to help improve memory and study is to understand first when your body is at its most productive. Most studies show that the brain is clearer and focused during daylight hours. Your mind and sense are fresh and thus able to retain more information. Study the most difficult subjects during the daytime. But it has also been shown that studying during the wee hours of morning is also effective.
