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 or load into your Google Calendar.
- Read over your notes soon after you have written them. That evening is preferable.
- 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. *This one is very important!
- Study frequently and in small doses. 15-30 minutes at a time.
- 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.
