The RIP Method of Studying
Students often ask me about how to study, usually after doing poorly on a test or three. I’ve condensed my advice down to RIP:
1. Review: Look over the notes regularly-don’t try to memorize them. Reading through them repeatedly will make the information stick.
2. Inquire: Ask questions about things that are not clear.
3. Practice: Take the practice test 2-3 days before the real test and see how that goes. If it goes badly, focus on the content that caused the most trouble.
