What are some various studying techniques that you practised in college?

This one I heard from my dad which is to sleep immediately after studying so that the knowledge so that the knowledge sinks in.

I would read factoids and bullet points from my textbooks into a hand-held tape recorder, and play the tape when I drove anywhere or did housework.

It's great for any class where you have to pass multiple-choice tests.

If you study while drunk, take the test while drunk.

Take notes. Aside from the fact that you can refer to them when studying, I found that the act of writing down the notes helped me remember.

I took r3's procedure to the extreme: I wrote extensive notes during class; then organized them into a more cohesive structure by re-writing them; then actually re-wrote them one more time just before the test.

Got all A's.

I use the same tactic R7. I don't get all A's but it helps me more than anything else Iv'e tried. Both my parents breezed through school. I'm not so lucky.

I would re-write my notes too. I'd write them over a few times until what I thought I couldn't remember would fit on one page. I graduated with a 3.96 GPA.
