Study Methods No One Talks About

1. Active Recall

This is the most important study technique. Active recall involves retrieving facts or other information from your brain. In order to incorporate active recall into your study, you need to test yourself. Luckily, you can use our built- in question banks to help implement active recall into your revision.

These can be found at the end of each chapter in our comprehensive notes for Junior Cycle Business Studies, Science and some of our French and Irish notes as well.

Exam papers are another effective method of implementing active recall into your study. Remember to correct each exam afterwards and revise the areas you were weak in.

2. Spaced Repetition

This is another important study technique. Spaced repetition involves revising information you need to learn and repeating it over increasing intervals. We recommend using a retrospective revision timetable to help you incorporate spaced repetition into your study. You can download your free revision timetables by clicking here. We have one revision timetable for each subject that we cater for. Instructions on how best to use these revision timetables are included.

3. Categorising

Instead of trying to learn huge amounts of information, it can be more effective to categorise subjects into different topics. This can help prevent you becoming overwhelmed. All of our notes are categorised into different topics to help you with your study.

Thanks for taking the time to read through this guide.

Happy Studying!
