Active Studying

Active studying is as simple as asking questions before, during, and after study time. Not only does this help to give your study session direction, but it also helps keep you on track and reflect on how to improve for your next study session.

Questions that you should ask yourself before starting your study session
- What am I about to learn?
- What do I already know about this subject?

Questions that you should ask yourself while studying
- How does this information fit into the bigger picture of my module or assignment?
- Do I understand what I have just read?
- Can I paraphrase it?
- Are there any key words or ideas that I need to write down? Why are these words and ideas important?

Questions to ask yourself when you’ve completed a study session
- What can I take away from this study session?
- What do I need to review or learn during my next study session?
