5 Ways to Improve Your Study Habits

StudyingDo you spend hours studying for a test only to get a C or lower? Most of the time, it’s not how long you study for a test, it’s how you study for a test that earns you an A.

Students often cram three to five hours the night before an exam, and they still don’t feel like they’re prepared. Though cramming may work for some students, it didn’t work for me, and if you’re getting C’s on your test, it’s not working for you either.

Cobocards: The New Way to do Flashcards

cobocardsI am a huge fan of flashcards. I have index card boxes filled with Spanish/English words, the periodic table, Algebra formulas, states and their capitals…The list goes on and on. I think that flashcards are a very effective way to learn new material and to quiz myself over the material. But, let’s face it, they tend to get bulky. Imagine carrying around 300 vocabulary words, each on its own flashcard. It becomes a bit of a burden.

Cobocards is a new webapp that allows you to create flashcards online. Cobocards “is an abbreviation for Collaboration Cards and helps you to easily create flashcards (alone or in a team) to study for whatever you want.” Read the rest of this entry »
