How to learn efficiently

  • State-dependent memory
  • Train your brain to get into the mental state of studying:
    • sit at your study area
    • turn on your study lamp
    • after 25 min (the typical time you can learn) get up and rest for 5 min
    • avoid distractions (avoid the living room, kitchen)
  • The more active you are in your learning, the effective
  • Concepts are more important than facts
  • Study groups are great
  • Rote learning
  • Pomodoro technique
