Introduction

How to learn successfully? Dear parents, guardians and pupils, In our school time we (hopefully and in most cases) spend much time on revising and preparing stuff for lessons. Sometimes we spend whole weekends to revise for an exam in the following week. But unfortunately it has just a short effect on us and we cannot remember it throughout our school life. Sometimes we look half an hour on phrases or definitions but we do not get it. The main problem is that most of us do not really know how to learn. Of course you think at the moment 'Wait? What is his problem, I learn by reading and reading is not rocket science'. But yes, it is! Many big and famous philosophers wrote many books about the myth 'learning' but now I want to tell you my way of how to become an A*-student (not immediately but from time to time). 1, Revision Revision is a really big topic. Revision after lesson is as important as the cool-down after sports. ...read more.

Middle

Everyone knows how difficult it is but it is really important because if you do not have any stuff that deflects you, you just have to concentrate on your school work. You also have to be consistent with yourself. If you work on your computer it is really easy that you get distracted by the internet and then you prefer to check your mails instead of revising for History. In the morning when you stand up, during study leave for example, you need to make sure what you want to revise or which prep you want to finish today. If you have clearly a clearly focused strategy for the day, your work would not be a problem of you anymore! 3, Time management Time management is an important factor as well. Everyone knows that out time is scarce and because out time is scarce we have to use it usefully. You just do not have enough time to spend your whole day for revising so you have to spend it in a way where you can get most out of it. ...read more.

Conclusion

It is like in sports. If you ran a long distance in a quite high pace you tired and for example thirsty and you want to rest. If you learn and revise with lots of concentration you are tired as well and your brain wants to rest and want to do something different. That is why we need to change our subjects. Every human gets bored if he did the same for a long time. If you play a same computer game a long time, you get bored. If you watch television the whole day, you get bored. It is with your work the same. So change about every 2 hours the subject you are working on. All in all I hope I could give you some advice on how you can get most out of your work. I know (and teachers know as well), how difficult it is to learn really intensive but I hope with my hints you know now how to "LEARN SUCCESSFULLY"! .........
