Chunking, chaining, and telling a story: Chunking is a useful technique for recall. You separate the information you’re trying to learn into small chunks that you then create individual associations. Each chunk is made by dividing something large into small units that are related to each other. Some people use acronyms or mnemonics to memorize long phrases, for example. Chaining is breaking down a process or event into a sequence of facts where you associate each new fact with the one before. Telling a story forces you to divide the information into smaller pieces that connect to each other in a logical sequence. Finally, the key to boosting learning with flashcards is to study them repeatedly over time. For example, if you have a quiz in one month’s time, rather than waiting until the week before the exam and studying for 30 minutes every day, make your flashcards and start studying as soon as you find out about the exam. As a fellow student now at university, I definitely don’t have a PhD in Exam Etiquette but this is the book younger me needed. All I wanted was one place that had a variety of tried-and-tested methods with reassurance from someone who had recently been through the education system. The Only Study Guide You’ll Ever Need is just that, and I have collected the best techniques and tools I wish I’d known earlier to help you get through your studies and smash your exams! The first method involves trying to condense a concept into its most crucial components from memory alone. Then, compare what you’ve written to your full notes to see how well you understand the concept and identify anything that you forgot or misrepresented. This facilitates engagement and application. (Bowler calls this technique “summarization from memory.”) Write down what your life will look like in five years if you choose a different, but realistic alternative path.

Thank you, Jade, for sharing all your knowledge with the world. Thank you for being vulnerable and pouring your heart in your book. Thank you for your hard work! Object association: this is an extension of the mind palace. The individual details of any object can help you remember facts or processes. Textbook questions and revision guides: Here’s where you test your knowledge using practice questions.This principle, popularized by President Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1954, argues that you should prioritize tasks by considering their urgency and importance: We've all been there: a new school year starts and there's 8 months till your exams - that's plenty of time, right? Then there's 6 months, 3 months, 1 month and oh, now there's 2 weeks left and you haven't started studying... Oakley explains that when our brain first absorbs information, it stores it as a “chunk” in our working memory—where information is stored while we process it. “Chunks” are bits of information that are bound together by a common theme or meaning—for example, the food-related vocabulary words for your upcoming Spanish exam might form one chunk, and vocabulary about the rooms of the home might be another chunk. The more we build connections between the bits of information in these chunks, the stronger the neural pathways within the chunks get; the deeper the chunk gets ingrained into our long-term memory; and the easier it is to recall the information within it. Set a specific day and time each week to make your weekly schedule. This will ensure you have sufficient time to complete the task and remember to do it.

Still, most of the self-help books did indeed help me. And surely the writer of this book was being realistic. That's why I am gonna give it 5 stars if good things happen in the future!Productivity isn’t about studying for hours on end, it’s about spending your time well. It’s about doing what needs to be done so that you can enjoy some free time. It’s about focusing on what’s important at a given moment and with intentionality.
