It differs for each individual but personally I like making flash cards for key terms and/or mindmaps for big (or small!) topics that I struggle with. I blue tack the mindmaps around my room in places I will see every day (e.g on your wardrobe) so you can simply read them every day - repetitive method and it takes a lot of time but I feel like it’s worth it!

GENERAL STUDY TECHNIQUES:

• The Pomodoro Technique whilst i'm learning the content for the first time. This is how it works: Study for 25 minutes at a time and reward yourself with a 5 minute break. After doing this twice more, reward yourself with a 15 minute break at the end of your third study period of 25 minutes. Then restart and continue. This technique breaks down your workload into small, manageable chunks to stay fresh and focused throughout the day.

• Spaced repetition to ensure I don't forget the content that i've learnt. It means you review information at gradually increasing intervals, so it becomes retained in your long-term memory.

• The Feynman technique to check if I'm thorough with what i've learnt. It states that if you've really understood something completely, you should easily be able to explain it in simple terms to someone that knows absolutely nothing about the topic.
