I am a procrastinator my self. I rarely ever study. If you are doing very well in your classes then I say do not sweat it. However, if you are not doing well in class then try breaking study up in smaller more manageable chunks. At a certain point, give yourself a small reward. After you are finished with study reward yourself again. That is what I do. Some times I even study with music in the background at a soft level.
So you don't like to write or do math...what's left? Just get over it.
you need to be done any way. think positive instead of procrastinating. have an open mind on the subject even though you may not like it.
i have alot of problemz w. mayh problemz 2...studyin does suck but if u do it in a group or even alone alwayz have sumthin the distract u from the quiet..cause that can make u go 2 sleep. so alwayz have a song playin but keep it on low so u wont get distracted by the music either..math is easier if u have sumbody 2 help u lik a tutor or just a friend
Picture yourself cleaning houses for a living because you didn't work a bit for an education, and maybe you'll decide that studying isn't so bad after all.
Studing always sucks if you wait until the last minute and then have to cram for hours to remember everything. The best way to study is to be more organized and just study a bit every day. For example, study for 1/2 hour for four days instead of two hours in one day. You probably have problems in math or other subjects because those are the ones you don't like the most. In terms of studying the bottom line is suffer now or suffer later. If you study a bit every day you are just suffering a little bit - but if you wait the very end to study it's a whole lot of suffering - so you choose.
It's not called homeWORK for nothing!
First, organize yourself. Get a plan- outline what you need to do. Then, get started. Cross off each assignment as you go.
We all have to things we don't like, but we do them anyway, because that's how things go!
Try not to get behind. That makes it worse.
As for studying for tests, make review sheets- like vocabulary and important points. Go over it every night- starting a week before your test. If you have any questions, you can write them down and ask the teacher when you have reviews. If you are still stuck (like with math), ask for help before you get snowed under.
As for writing, well, there's no getting around it. Keep practicing. When you move up into the upper grades or move on to college or university, you will be glad you kept up with this exercise.
As a former teacher, I really appreciated students who took their time to study and come prepared. I also gave special consideration when I knew a student was having difficulty but didn't give up.
Study your least favorite subjects first...then you can go on the the ones that come more easily.
On stragey that is really helpful is SQ3R notetaking. It's simple really and may help spark an interest in some of the less interesting subjects.
S the first step is to skim. You just look at the topic heading and the pictures. (This might help spark interest, but also helps you not get destracted by all those neat illustrations some of the books have which make you forget where your place was.)
Q the next step is to make up questions such as what do you mean real numbers I thought all numbers were real? This again helps with the interest. You are reading for a purpose. You should retain the information better or at least the information for which you made questions. A good way to keep track of your questions is divide a notebook page into two colomns and have your questions in one colomn and as you find the answers write in the other colomn. Also you make lines separating the questions into rows. This becomes a great study tool later.
R- the next step is to read.
R the second R is to write. As you come across the answers to your questions write the answers in other colomn.
R the last R is to review. This can be done quite easily as you have a great study tool already. All you need are those notes you took and a couple pieces of paper. Cover the notebook page you are working on with the paper and as you go down the page read the questions. Try to answer them. If you can't remember at first, it's not a problem because after a couple times you ought to know them well. If you go through your notes every night you wont have to waste time cramming or waste time wondering what to study because usually the subject headings and illustrations tell you what you need to know and if some item is brought up multiple times i.e. in the book or by the teacher, you can always add it to your notes because if it is being brought up a lot, it is almost certain to be on the test.
I hope this helps. Sorry about any spelling errors in advance. I am not sur if it is yahoo or my computer but the check spelling does not seem to work on my longer entries.
Forget all that.
If your having problems studying using traditional methods, then new approaches to traditional methods won't help either - not for a long period of time, anyways.
I had that problem all through my school years (high school and college), and the best solution I could come up with was to put studying on my terms.
First, if you can't keep to a schedule, then don't try to create one. Fit studying in your already existing schedule. Even if it's 10 minutes a night before you fall asleep or the 10 minutes a day you spend in the bathroom. Whenever you feel your brain is the most clear and retentive - choose that time. But, it doesn't have to be the same everyday either.
Believe it or not, the book(s) your instructor gives to you is not the 'de facto standard' on the subject you are studying.
Find other sources that write about that subject. If you like the Internet, then find people who you relate to that write or teach about the subject you are studying (i.e. bloggers, news sites, games, etc.).
Use whatever you can find besides your textbooks. Be careful about how accurate the information you are using is, but the main point is to make you interested.
Once that is done, then go back to your text books. You'll be amazed at how quick and easy you'll start to pick up on the information presented in text book styles.
