Welcome to Aim Higher by Achieve Tutorials a series of videos on how to make you a better student.
My name is Pete Edwards and I’m the founder of Achieve Tutorials and I want to help you become a more efficient more effective student, and hopefully along the way reduce some of that stress that you’re going to feel in middle school, high school, and even in college.
So this series is going to start with a five video series on a systematic way to make you a better student, but before we get to that I want to just leave you with one simple tip.
The first thing that I would tell you is that studying by re-reading material or even just looking over your notes is not enough to prepare you for a quiz or a test. You have to become engaged and get that brain really connected to the material.
You can do that by creating a new study guide; you can create timelines; you can do thought maps…all sorts of different ways to get your brain engaged, even teaching the material to someone else.
But just reading…not enough…got to keep that brain engaged in the entire process.
All right, next time we will start with step one on making learning a systematic process that you can use in all of your classes every time.
