How to Study For Exams

Taking exams is stressful, but you can make it easier by improving the way you study. Studying for your exams effectively and efficiently will keep you from feeling unprepared, and it will set you up for success!

Before you start studying, make a list of the exams you need to study for and rank them from easiest to hardest. Study for your easiest exams first to get them out of the way. Then, devote the bulk of your time to studying for your hardest tests. Go over your notes for each exam and convert them into a study guide, and then read over the guide until you feel confident. To test if you’ve really learned the material, ask yourself questions or make flashcards. For tips on studying more efficiently for your exams, scroll down!

Setting the Foundation for Later

    1

    Review your syllabus. Figure out when all of your exams will be and how much of your grade they are worth. Put these dates on your calendar or planner so they don’t sneak up on you!

    • Plan review sessions beginning at least a week in advance of each exam. Ideally, you’ll do several mini-reviews well in advance, gradually increasing the time in which you study, rather than trying to cram everything into one mega session the night before the test.

    Pay attention in class. This seems like a no-brainer, but actually paying attention while you’re in class will help you immensely once exam time comes. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking you’ll just “absorb” knowledge; be an active learner. Try sitting at the front of the class, this will make it easier to focus.

    • Listen carefully, because teachers often give hints like “The most important thing about this topic is…”. Or they may just place emphasis on certain words and issues. This is the real key to testing well. The more you absorb the information early on, the less studying you’ll need to do.

    Take good notes. This is easier said than done, but learning how to take good notes will help you immensely once it comes time to study. Write down everything your teacher writes on the board or puts up in slides. Try to record as much of what the teacher says as possible, but don’t allow taking notes to distract you so much that you forget to listen.[1]

    • Review your notes daily, right after class. This will help reinforce the information you just learned.[2]

    Make studying a part of your habits. Too often, it’s easy to view studying as something that only gets done at the last minute in a huge overnight cram session. Instead, try setting aside some time every day to study. Scheduling it just like another appointment or class may help you stay motivated to continue the habit.[3]
  5. Image titled Study For Exams Step 5

    Ask about the exam format. Ask your teacher what format the test will be in, how it will be graded, if there are any opportunities for extra credit, and if they would be willing to talk to you about highlighting in your notes, what the most important broad subjects will be, etc.

Creating an Optimal Environment for Learning

  1. Image titled Study For Exams Step 6
    1

    Study in a clean , quiet and orderly room. Keep anything and everything away from where you are that may cause you to get distracted. Jumping up to read a text message on your phone or periodically checking social media is ill-advised whilst studying.
  2. Image titled Study For Exams Step 7
    2

    Turn on the light! Studying in a dark room is not recommended. Add lamps at night, or in the daytime, open the window coverings (open the window a little, too). People tend to study and focus better in a brighter, oxygenated room with little noise.
  3. Image titled Study For Exams Step 8
    3

    Turn the TV off. While many students believe that they’re good at multitasking, such as studying with the TV on or while chatting online with friends, research suggests that this is not true for the vast majority of people.[4] For better studying performance, eliminate distractions such as TV and loud music with lyrics. Rapidly swapping attention between studying and watching TV makes it more difficult for your brain to prioritize information acquisition.[5]
  4. Image titled Study For Exams Step 9
    4

    Decide if music is right for you. Music’s effect on memory performance varies between individuals. Some studies have found music to aid the memory performance of individuals with ADD/ADHD, while reducing it in individuals without the disorder. Classical music appears to be the most effective in enhancing studying performance.[6] You must determine whether you’re better off with or without it. If you do enjoy listening to music whilst studying, make sure you’re actually concentrating on the material you have to study for, and not the catchy tune that’s playing in your head.

    • If you absolutely must listen to music, find instrumental music so that the words in the music don’t interfere with your studying.
    • Listen to background sounds from nature in order to keep your brain active and prevent other noises to distract you. There are several free background noise generators available online.
    • Listening to Mozart or classical music won’t make you smarter or keep information in your brain, but it may make your brain more receptive to receiving information.

Organizing Your Learning

  1. Image titled Study For Exams Step 10
    1

    Focus on your work objectives. What do you intend to accomplish during this session? Setting a concrete study goal may help you. Creating study plans is also a good idea. If 3 out of 5 lessons are easy and can be finished fast, finish them first, so you can spend quality time on the difficult lessons without fretting. Also, keeping a folder for your exam reviews is a good way to keep organized.
  2. Image titled Study For Exams Step 11
    2

    Write yourself a study guide. Go through your notes and rewrite the most important information. Not only will this give you a more focused way to study, but it creating it is another form of studying! Just don’t spend too much time on the guide itself: you need to have time to go over it too!
  3. Image titled Study For Exams Step 12
    3

    Reinvent your notes in other formats. Rewriting your notes is great if you’re a kinesthetic learner. Mind mapping is the most effective way of doing this. Also, when you re-write something, you will probably think about what you are writing, what it’s about, and why you wrote it down. Most importantly, it refreshes your memory. If you took notes a month ago and just found out that those notes will be relevant in your exam, rewriting them will remind you of them when you need it for your exam.

    • Don’t simply copy your notes over and over again. This tends to lean towards memorizing the exact wording of your notes instead of the actual concepts. Instead, read and think about the contents of your notes (such as think of examples), and then re-word them.
  4. Image titled Study For Exams Step 13
    4

    Ask yourself questions about your material. This can help you tell if you have remembered what you just studied. Don’t try to remember the exact wording from your notes in your answer to yourself; synthesizing that information into an answer is a much more useful tactic.

    • It can also help to say the answers to your questions out loud, as if you were trying to explain it to someone else.
  5. Image titled Study For Exams Step 14
    5

    Review previous tests and assignments. If you missed questions on previous work, look up the answers and understand why you missed these questions. This is particularly helpful if the exam you’re studying for is cumulative or comprehensive, meaning it covers things you also covered earlier in the course.

Studying Efficiently

  1. Image titled Study For Exams Step 15
    1

    Find the right hours. Don’t study when you’re really tired. It’s better to get a good night’s sleep after studying for a short time than to push on at two in the morning. You won’t remember much and you’re likely to see a performance drop the next day.
  2. Image titled Study For Exams Step 16
    2

    Start as early as possible. Don’t cram. Cramming the night before is proven to be ineffective, because you’re taking in so much information at once that it’s impossible to memorize it at all — in fact, you’ll hardly retain anything. Studying before and going over it multiple times really is the best way to learn the material. This is especially true with things like history and theoretical subjects.

    • Always study when you have the chance, even if it is only for 15 or 20 minutes. These short study periods add up fast!
    • Study in chunks of 25 minutes using the Pomodoro Technique. After that make a break of 5 minutes; repeat the process 3x, then make a longer pause of 30-45 minutes.
  3. Image titled Study For Exams Step 17
    3

    Study for your learning style. If you’re a visual learner, using pictures can help. Auditory learners should record themselves saying notes and recite it afterwards. If you are a physical person, lecture to yourself (out loud) while also using your hands or moving around; this way it will be easier for you to memorize.
  4. Image titled Study For Exams Step 18
    4

    Adjust your study techniques to fit your subject. Subjects such as mathematics require a lot of practice with problem sets in order to become familiar with the processes required. Subjects in the humanities, such as history or literature, may require more information synthesis and memorization of things such as terms or dates.

    • Whatever you do, don’t just re-read the same set of notes over and over again. In order to actually learn, you need to take an active role in knowledge creation as well as information review. Try finding the “big picture” among what you’ve taken down or reorganizing your notes by theme or date.
  5. Image titled Study For Exams Step 19
    5

    Think of your teacher. Ask yourself: What is my teacher most likely to ask on the exam? What materials should I focus on to give myself the best chance of knowing what I need to know? What trick questions or wrinkles could my teacher introduce that might throw me for a loop? This may help you focus on the most important information, rather than getting stuck on things that might not matter as much.
  6. Image titled Study For Exams Step 20
    6

    Ask for help. If you need help, ask someone who is good at these subjects. Friends, family, tutors, and teachers are all good options. If you don’t understand what the person helping you is communicating, don’t be afraid to ask them to elaborate.

    • Asking teachers for help conveys your commitment to the material and can be helpful in the future as well as with your exams. Always remember to ask your teacher if you do not know what she is talking about or if you need more information. The teacher will probably be glad to help.
    • There are often resources at schools and colleges that can help you cope with stress, answer study-related questions, give you study tips and other forms of guidance. Ask your teacher or visit your school’s website to learn how to use these resources.

Keeping Motivated

  1. Image titled Study For Exams Step 21
    1

    Take breaks. You need some time to have fun and it is better to study when you are feeling relaxed than to exhaust yourself studying all day! Carefully structure your break and study time. Usually, 20-30 minutes of study and then a 5 minute break is the most effective method.

    • If you have trouble bringing yourself to study, instead of long uninterrupted sessions, chunk your work into 20 minute periods, taking a 10-minute break at the end of every period.
    • Make sure that you structure the chunks logically so that you’re not breaking up concepts across chunks, as this may make it more difficult to remember concepts in their entirety.
  2. Image titled Study For Exams Step 22
    2

    Think positive but work hard. Self confidence is important; focusing on how little you’ve studied or how badly you think you will do on the exam just distracts you from working on achieving success. However, this doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t study hard. You still need to work at it, even if you have confidence in yourself. Confidence just keeps away roadblocks to success.
  3. Image titled Study For Exams Step 23
    3

    Work with others. Arrange study dates at a library with your friends to compare notes or explain things the other one might not understand. Working with other people can help you cover gaps in your own knowledge and also help you remember more information, since you may have to explain things to them or have conversations about the topic.

    • If you ask for help from others, don’t joke around. Concentrate on what you are doing.
  4. Image titled Study For Exams Step 24
    4

    Call for help. If you’re stuck on a subject, do not be afraid to call a friend and ask for help. If your friends cannot help, ask a tutor for help.

    • If you have time before your exam and find that you’re not understanding material, ask if your teacher will go over it with you.

Preparing Yourself for Test Day

  1. Image titled Study For Exams Step 25
    1

    Get plenty of rest the night before. Children in elementary school (in the UK, primary school) require on average 10-11 hours of sleep for optimal performance. Adolescents, on the other hand, typically require at least 10+ hours. Poor sleep has been found to accumulate (referred to as “sleep debt”); in order to make up for prolonged poor sleep habits, several weeks of daily optimal sleep may be required to return to optimal performance.

    • Don’t consume caffeine or any other stimulating substance within 5-6 hours prior to sleeping. (However, if a doctor prescribed you a stimulant to take at a specific time, take it at that time regardless of when you fall asleep, and ask your doctor before changing anything.) Such substances reduce the efficiency of sleep, meaning that even with sufficient sleep time, you may not feel well rested upon waking.
  2. Image titled Study For Exams Step 26
    2

    Eat a healthy, light meal. Eat a balanced breakfast full of lean protein, vegetables, omega-3 fatty acids, and antioxidants. A sample breakfast might include a spinach omelet with smoked salmon, whole wheat toast, and a banana.[7]
  3. Image titled Study For Exams Step 27
    3

    Bring a snack. If your exam is a long one, bring a snack with you if you’re permitted to do so. Something with some complex carbohydrates and protein, such as a whole-wheat peanut butter sandwich or even a granola bar, will help boost your concentration when it begins to flag.[8]
  4. Image titled Study For Exams Step 28
    4

    Get to the exam room with time to spare. Give yourself at least five or 10 minutes to gather your thoughts before starting the exam. This way, you can get settled in and have time to relax before the test starts.
  5. Image titled Study For Exams Step 29
    5

    Do the questions you know first. If you don’t know the answer to the question, do the next one and come back to it at the end. Struggling and concentrating on a question you don’t know the answer to can be time consuming, which makes you lose valuable marks.
  6. Image titled Study For Exams Step 30
    6

    Make flashcards. If you have a grammar test or English, its good to make flashcards to remember definitions of a word. You can take it to school and just flip through them before your exams start.

 

Preventing Post Workout Pain!

POST-WORKOUT PAIN – HOW TO PREVENT, ALLEVIATE, AND OVERCOME IT

How to Prevent, Alleviate, and Overcome It. We Answer Your Questions.

Q: I’m frequently very sore from my workouts, particularly after training legs—it’s sometimes so bad I can’t walk down stairs unassisted! Is this normal? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?

A: This is a common problem that occurs after weight training. We’ve even seen people walking backwards down stairs due to the pain from their hard leg workout. So rest assured… you’re not alone!

There are two types of exercise-related soreness. The first is immediate or acute soreness, and the second, more common type, is “Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness” or DOMS. Let’s take a look at these two, what causes this soreness, how to tell if the pain is good or bad, and perhaps most importantly, how to ease the post-workout “ouch.”


Acute Soreness

This type of soreness occurs during exercise or immediately after. It’s caused by a buildup of chemical waste in your muscles (technically known as “endotoxins,” which are measured by the rise in lactic acid within the blood). These toxins usually dissipate within a couple of minutes as you rest between sets when strength training, or if you are doing some form of cardio exercise, when you slow your pace.

During exercise, when these toxins reach a peak within the muscle, athletes refer to this sensation as “the burn,” and it’s normally a good indication our muscles are about to reach failure. Most athletes consider this a “good” pain as it signifies the high level of intensity you’re putting into your workout.

Fortunately, this pain goes away almost immediately.

However, if you feel this type of pain after your workout, then it may be caused by fluid moving from the blood plasma into the tissues, which can occur an hour or two after stopping intense exercise. As with acute/immediate soreness, which occurs during exercise, this pain should ease on its own within the same day. Normally within an hour or two after your workout.


DOMS

This may sound familiar: you work out intensely and leave the gym feeling great. You feel great the whole day. And then bam, the following day, you feel like you’ve been put on the rack in a torture chamber.

Welcome to DOMS or Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness.

Typically, DOMS occurs the day after you work out, but oftentimes you actually feel even sorer on day two. Think of the last time you trained your leg muscles… either with heavy weights or with super high intensity. Remember how you endured a full day or two of walking funny and screaming “ouch” every time you lifted one of your legs to take a step or, worse, trudge up a set of stairs? And sitting down, forget about it!

DOMS can be especially difficult if you’ve laid off for some time from training, and then, when returning to the gym, hit it hard. I’m sure you know what I’m talking about here.

Fortunately, this type of pain should subside after a couple of days, and once you’ve adapted to the new exercise, higher level of intensity, workload, or new workout program, the pain should lessen considerably.

Since DOMS is the one most people endure, this is the type of pain We’re going to be focusing on in this article.

DOMS is particularly seen in “newbies” who are just starting a workout program. So if this is you, please don’t let the temporary (and typical) soreness of DOMS put you off—it will get better! As any seasoned trainer can tell you, though, DOMS can also be experienced when introducing a new exercise or hitting a new, higher level on the weights you use.


Why Does Pain Happen?

When you train with weights, you’re actually breaking down the muscle fibers, and as current theories hold, this may be what causes general, localized soreness. Basically, what is happening when you train intensely with weights is, on a microscopic level, you’re tearing the muscle fibers. The muscle tears are essential, though, as you actually build new muscle when these fibers are repaired and, as a result, increase in strength and size. The “tearing of these fibers actually produces swelling and that swelling in turn puts pressure on the local nerves which causes pain.

Lactic acid was previously blamed for DOMS, however, recent research indicates this isn’t so: lactate concentrations return to normal levels within 60 minutes, whereas DOMS occurs after 24 to 72 hours. As mentioned, the theory is that DOMS may be caused in part from inflammation around the muscle fibers or even from damaged connective tissue. Research is still ongoing to give a conclusive reason for it. (In other words, the scientists aren’t 100% sure what causes it!)

Research so far does suggest that certain types of exercise are associated with persistent soreness.

For example, a study published in the Journal Ergonomics compared two types of strength training: concentric (as in ordinary flexion) and eccentric (as in lowering a weight). Subjects in the eccentric group complained of muscle soreness, while the concentric group did not. In other words, it appears from this study that micro tears (and thus the possibility of DOMS) are more common with the “negative” (or eccentric) portion of the exercise, versus the “positive” (or concentric) part. Therefore, if you want to increase your muscle size and strength, you need to concentrate more heavily on the eccentric/negative part of lifting weights. I’d say this goes hand and hand with the old theory that says “slow and controlled” movements stimulate the most muscle fibers.


Is There Any Way To Prevent DOMS?

Luckily, there are certain measures you can take to ease DOMS or even prevent it altogether. First, try warming up thoroughly before you start your workout. This could be as simple as five to 10 minutes of easy cardio (in other words, until you start to break a light sweat) or by performing a few “warm-up” sets, using lighter weights than you would normally use for the muscle group you’re about to train. Both these methods help you completely warm up your body, ensuring your connective tissues (that hold the muscle to the bone) and muscles are “warm”—meaning they are filled with fresh, flowing blood, and nutrients are being delivered to the local area, and you’re not just hitting the weights or going full-belt into cardio without “waking up” your body and preparing it for intense training. By the way, this is particularly true if you work out first thing in the morning and your muscles are stiff from lying in bed for eight hours.

What you do after your workout is important too. That is, you should “cool down” completely before leaving the gym. We recommend you again do five to 10 minutes of cardio and then some light stretching—concentrating on the muscle group you’ve just trained. You could even try stretching the working muscle(s) between sets as well. This works particularly well for people who just want to get out of the gym after their workout or are on a time constraint.

Stretching helps lengthen the muscle and increases blood flow, which helps flush out the toxins that have built up during your workout. Be sure to stretch only after working out, though, and not before—as you might have heard. You don’t want to stretch muscles that aren’t “warmed up” as this can potentially lead to injury.



You’re Already Sore… Now What?

Sometimes you just get sore, despite doing everything you possibly can to prevent it, so how can you ease the pain?

Don’t call me crazy but the answer is…more exercise. We’re not suggesting you go and repeat the workout you just did or run three miles at a hard pace after running five miles the day before. We’re talking easy, light exercise, which will increase blood flow to the area to diminish the soreness. Examples would be a light workout, like riding a bike; a nighttime walk at a moderate pace; or even performing another weight-training session but focusing on core body parts, such the abdominals (rather than limbs).

Other ways to ease the pain include more stretching, especially on the affected area. Yoga is great for stretching and a fabulous way to keep toxins from building up. Another way to flush out toxins from your body is to have a full body massage. Preferably, the type best known as a “deep-tissue” massage. Massage has been shown to help if done soon after you’ve finished working out. (Okay, this isn’t a proven fact, but do you really need an excuse for a massage?!) It will not only relieve some of the soreness, but it will keep your body free from potentially damaging toxins that build up over time. It’s a good idea to get a massage at least once a month. But if private massage is not something you feel comfortable with or can fit in your budget, you can always administer some self-massage to the affected area.

Icing can be very effective too and, if the pain is really persistent, try taking some ibuprofen or Aspirin. Take note that Aspirin increases Vitamin C excretion, so leave a few hours between taking your multivitamin and the painkiller.

You’ll probably find that if you have a desk job, your muscles feel worse after a prolonged period of sitting down, so get up every few hours and take a little walk and then stretch out.


Supplements for Pain Relief?

Preventative Pain Measures

While sometimes the painful aftershock of a workout can be inevitable, there are ways in which to reduce that pain and help your muscles recover at a faster rate. One product we recommend for this is AMINO-GRO™. The very essence of building muscle revolves around how fast you can recover from each intense workout. AMINO-GRO is scientifically designed to help accelerate and optimize your recovery. The combination of BCAAs, BIO-GRO, glutamine and CocoDrate™ (a proprietary combination of Cococin™ coconut water powder with other electrolytes) work together to prevent muscle breakdown, signal protein synthesis and hydrate the muscle for improved recovery. AMINO-GRO can help to deliver a noticeable difference in recovery time and muscle soreness. Even better, it tastes great and can simply be consumed before, during or after your workout!

Additional BIO-GRO should be consumed each day as it has been shown in clinical trials to decrease recovery time and soreness with continued use. The Bio-Active Peptides in BIO-GRO signal an increase in protein synthesis which helps improve or shorten recovery time. Taking in a minimum of 6 grams of BIO-GRO daily is a key factor in improving recovery and decreasing soreness.

5 Statement Spiky Hairstyles For Men

It can get a bad rep, but spiky hair is something that can really help to add texture and style to a simple cut. Whether you go for subtle soft spikes, or a messier, unstructured look, there’s a tonne of ways to make it work for you. So, if you’re wondering how to spike your hair as well as what style will work with the length and texture of it, then have a read through our handy guide on some of the best statement spiky hairstyles for men.

Spiky Hairstyles for Men

#1: Spiky Pompadour for Men

A pompadour is a style that’s great for a variety of looks, working as a formal hairstyle for men as well as casual, everyday one. Although there are various pompadour cuts, if you’re working with naturally spiky hair, there’s no reason not to show it off in the cut. Instead of opting for a smooth, rounded pompadour cut, follow the basic style but instead of sweeping the hair back, spike it up instead. 

usefulproducts

Long spiked hair can be hard to keep in a set position, so don’t be afraid to use a strong pomade and a bit of hairspray. As long as your careful with it, you won’t end up with crispy hair. It’s also important to remember to spike your hair up, rather than towards the middle, as you want a high, elevated look rather than a faux hawk. 

inspiration

#2: Short Spiky Hair for Men

Men’s short spiky hairstyles obviously don’t come in one set style, and you can vary up the look depending on your hair type, whether you want to go for a fringe or not, and if you want a simple cut or a more complex tapered or faded one. You can easily keep the sides short and opt for a slightly longer spiked front with your haircut if you want a defined look, or you can simply stick to an all over length. 

Style a men’s spiky haircut correctly, using a small amount of light wax applied generally over the hair, and you can get a subtle, clean look. Get it wrong and you’ll be channelling the very worst look of the 90s. If you’re wondering how to make spikes that don’t make you look like a greasy businessman, just follow these simple tips;

  1. Get a pea sized amount of wax or gel and rub it between your hands.
  2. Rub your hands through your hair, ruffling the hair so the wax is distributed evenly throughout.
  3. If you want definition in certain areas, run your fingertips through your hair, but don’t deliberately spike up sections, otherwise you’ll end up with the dreaded 90s look.

inspiration

#3: Faux Hawk Spiky Hair for Men

A faux hawk hairstyle and a pompadour might seem pretty similar, and, in a lot of ways, they are, however, the main difference in a faux hawk is the direction the hair goes in. While a pompadour is all about volume and tends to have the front of the hair swept back, the faux hawk is directed towards the middle, giving you a sort of triangle at the top of your head.

usefulproducts

We didn’t make that sound great, but this messy spiky hair is a great option if you want a vaguely structured look, but aren’t after anything too formal. For the best result, opt for faded sides to help accentuated the pointed top. If you’re wondering how to spike short hair use a slightly heavier clay or pomade over a wax to get a better hold.

inspiration

#4: Long Spiky Hair for Men

When we mention long spiky hairstyles for men we’re really just talking about thick, full hair that goes as long as the chin, not hair that’s shoulder length or longer. This means there’s really a tonne of men’s spiked hairstyles you can go for, from textured chin length hair with a sweeping fringe to a thick, all over length that can be worked into a stylishly messy look.  

When it comes to creating cool spikes that work with long hair, a lot of the styling depends on the texture of your hair. If you’ve got thick, coarse hair that’s hard to keep in place, then a strong pomade might be necessary to help keep the shape. If you’ve got fine hair then a light wax alongside a good hairspray should be enough to give it a textured, spiked style.

inspiration

#5: Side Part Spiky Hair for Men

A side parting can really help to define a haircut, giving it a more structured finished and an opportunity to play around with contrasting lengths. You can experiment with a range of looks, working in faded sides, long sweeping fringes and even buzz cut areas, to create different dynamic hairstyles. One style that’s simple to achieve is to smooth down the short side of hair and spike up the longer one, creating a high contrast and emphasising the textured fringe.

If you’re wondering how to spike long hair, such as a sweeping fringe, the key is prep and a good hairspray. Wash your hair with a shampoo tailored to your hair type then add a good hold hair mousse to damp hair. Then shape your hair with a thick wax or pomade, and finish off with a hairspray. It shouldn’t look overdone or crisp and will stay in place for the whole day.
