Why improving your study habits can improve your grades

Having bad study habits can really show up in your grades, but if you change your study habits your grades will improve. Many important things factor in understanding about studying. The most important fact about studying: no two people think alike; therefore, no two people study the same. What works for you may not work for your friend, and vice versa. I know I have no class that I enjoy so much that I cannot wait to get home so that I can study it, on that note we can only wish. As people we are all different for some students studying and being motivated to learn comes naturally but for me not so much. Success in high school and college really depend on good study habits. Things like taking bad notes, not knowing how to study, not knowing when to study and not having a good place to study can really affect your grades.

The first thing a person can do to improve their study habits is take better notes. When taking notes you do not have to write down every word the teacher says, if you do that you’re not going to know what's important and what's not important. If you do that you’re going to be studying things that’s not important and that could confuse you and make studying really boring. Write down only the things that you think are important. You can even read ahead in a book and highlight what you think is good information to know. If the teacher says anything more than once, or puts emphasis on something, highlight that it could be on your next test. Good thinking skills are especially important in note taking. Everyone has good thinking skills but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they use them. Good thinking skills can’t be studied they must be built up over...

... middle of paper ... or step outside away from everyone else. You could choose to study as school; unfortunately sometimes classmates can be unruly. Because of unruliness that could make it hard to concentrate. You could leave the class and head to a study hall if your school supports one.

In summary, bad study habits produce bad grades good study habits produce good grades. Knowing how to take better notes could increase your comprehension levels. Figuring what your best way to study is makes learning and studying so much more fun. Not knowing when to study could be bad but creating a good schedule really helps. Having a good place to study helps, it gives you one thing and one thing only to concentrate on. When most people hear the word study, they cringe at the thought, but with better information on it, you can handle it better. Better grades are tight around the corner.
