Train4TradeSkills Students Share Their Top Studying Tips – Part 2
Train4TradeSkills students now share their top studying tips to help you when studying on your course. All of the interviews are from Train4TradeSkills Radio, our student radio service.
“When I go through the books I like to highlight the things and write them in a separate book, so it’s easy to refer to and it’s in my language, so I can understand it properly and it’s made it easier for me to learn.”
“Best bit of advice is to take your time with it, don’t try and rush, because there’s quite a lot to read when you get it all through. A lot of people think the quicker I get through the quicker I’m done, but it doesn’t pay to rush through it – just take your time and make sure you understand it.”
“What I tend to do is write things down. in my Bristolian accent and things I know and it just works out for me a lot easier by doing that. Some people are very lucky and can take things down and suck it all in, but I start reading and end up staring through the pages. At least when you’re writing it down and you see a question, you sort of go back to it – and I found that really does help.
“What I do to get it lodged in my brain is make posters with little bullet points and put them all around my flat and above the toilet. So when I go to the toilet I can just read the post-it and it lodges in my mind. Just that really – that’s what I’ve been doing and it seems to work.”
“Basically you’ve just got to buckle down to read all the books and manuals and take it stage by stage. Spend at least 2 hours a day reading the manuals.”
“I find reading through passages and making bullet points in a separate notebook and picking out the important parts works well for me. And then every 20 minutes just take a short break.”
