the questions two ways. I can answer the questions or definitions and flip it over to see the
answer, or I can look at the answer and then flip it over to see the definition or question. This
technique is one of my more successful studying habits.
When I have to learn a list of things, I find that writing the list repeatedly helps me to
remember. Sometimes I find that I have to write the list about twenty to twenty-five times before
I actually remember what is on the list.
Then after I remember the list, I can start remembering
the definitions of the each listing with the flash cards.
My other technique for studying definitions is as effective as flash cards for me. I like to
fold a piece of paper diagonally, almost in half. I write my definitions on one side the paper and
the answers on the other. Then I can question myself without being able to see the answer. I
have also found that I remember more by doing a little each day. If I use my information that I
have to learn on a daily basis, I feel that I retain it more. My study habits seem to take me longer
than other people that I have spoken with about how they study. I do feel that repetition is the
