Learning School Again

From EdX Youth talk "What do top students do?"

Top Students:
  • Don't Aim to Just Work hard
    • They work hard at doing the right things
    • Model what the top students are doing
  • Use Practice exams
    • More than memory: "An exam does not test how you remember. It tests how you use what you remember."
  • Use Study Time Tables
    • First thing is put in things related to when you are not going to study
    • Make sure to fit in things you like doing first
    • Then schedule in time for study
    • Every day you are doing something that you love doing, making the studying more effective and less likely to wear you down
