My study habits are fairly successful in most instances. I generally reread notes and repeat them. In some cases, I rewrite notes in order to better remember them. I also study sections of the textbook which are covered on the test. I usually study for several hours throughout the week. These methods of study are effective and result in decent grades. The first psych exam was an exception to this.
I used the study methods mentioned above to prepare for the psych exam. They were not effective at all. I will need to study differently for the next exam. I will study for longer periods of time. I will rewrite key points. I did not do this for the first test. I will read the textbook multiple times to better understand the material. I will put more effort into studying theorists, as most of my incorrect answers on the exam occurred in the matching section. I will also read the How to Study guide on canvas. Hopefully, I will be more prepared for the next exam.
