Over 80% of our patients at Burleson Orthodontics are students. Many of them arrive to their orthodontic appointment with reading assignments and homework in hand. Here are some tips for getting the most out of your studying sessions:
Determine your learning style and use it to your advantage when it comes to studying. There are some basic ways that people learn such as by listening, reading, teaching, and through hands-on experiences. Once you know that, you can use it to create study habits for yourself that will help you learn the information effectively. For example, if you are an auditory learner, then you can read the information aloud, or record and play it back. If you learn best from writing, you can create yourself some writing assignments that get you to explain the information through writing it down.
Where you choose to study makes a difference, believe it or not. You need a place that is going to be free from lots of distractions, so you can actually concentrate on what you are trying to learn. Aim for having a specific study place that works for you, and that you know you can go to each time you need to get down to business.
