Know your optimum time for learning We all learn in different ways and have different times of the day when we are at our peak learning potential and when we are not. Do you know what time of day you learn best?
If you know when this time is, you can create a study schedule where you learn new information or study difficult subjects at this time and leave the easier subjects (or less taxing tasks) to a less productive time. This is being strategic in maximising the productivity of your study time.
It may take you a week or so to work out when these times are. Once you know them then adjust your study schedule accordingly. Remember, even 10 mins of study when you are really alert is just as valuable as an hour when you are tired and not remembering much.
