    Study Techniques:

    Studying for classes involves more than just "cramming the night before a test." The following are suggestions to improve your grade in biology:

    • Write all assignment due dates in your planner.
    • Read over your notes soon after you have written them.
    • Review the vocabulary list as you go.
    • Do all warm-ups, homework, worksheets, study questions, etc.
    • Keep your handouts, lecture summaries, and study questions organized in your notebook and composition notebook.
    • Always read assigned material and make a graphic organizer to help you summarize main ideas.
    • Participate in class.
    • Study frequently and in small doses. 
    • Set up a study group and study with friends.
    • If you are having trouble with the material, get help early.  Do not wait until the end of the grading period.
