A few ideas to help you get started

It never hurts to know a few tricks to get ahead in your studying. These will hopefully make your studying environment more pleasant and easier for you to work in.


-Before you begin to study you should have a quiet, secluded place to work in.


-A clean clear place to work is always good. A cluttered working space leads to lost work.


-Good lighting, you dont want to strain your eyes. Also when there is improper lighting people tend to get tiered faster because of the strain put on their eyes. Also you could misread the question.


-Check before. Always make sure you have all the material you need. You dont want to be doing work and then have to stop to find something you forgot. Here is a list of things you might need to do your homework for physical science:

            -Pencil (avoid pen*, unless asked for)


            -Loose leaf / scrap paper


            -The homework assigned / material to study

            -Reference books (given at beginning of school)

*Avoid using pen because if you make a mistake you dont want to have to wait for your liquid paper to dry


-Focus. Focus on your homework, if there are things in your work space that distract you get rid of them. Take a break if you need one and then get right back to work.


-Dont rush! Yes the homework or studying might be boring, but dont rush. If you do your homework wont be understood and what you studied wont sink in. Take it slow, if you dont understand something re-read it a few times, if you still dont understand it skip that part or question and go back to it later.


-Congratulations. Once you are done your work properly, or have finished studying properly, congratulate yourself on good work done.


-Mistakes. Mistakes happen, but dont get upset. Learn from your mistake. Go back and redo the questions you got wrong even if you think you understand what you did wrong. Prove yourself right, if you did understand you would be able to do the problem (or one similar) and get it right.
