Flash Cards While studying for my test in human sexual behavior I will be using flash cards to study. Starting seven days before the test I will start reading through each chapter making flash cards as I read through. I will finish reading through and making flash cards four days after starting. I will spend at least 3 hours per day reading the chapters and making notecards. After I finish making the notecards I will have 3 days to study them. I will go through them 3 hours each day before the test.I received a 100 on this test. Comparing to tests I took last semester, in similar structured classes, I did significantly better, and the highest grade I received was a C.
Self-Testing: To study for my Intro to Experimental Psych class I will be using the self – testing method. I will make a test and take it three days before the test. This way I will have time to review the material I struggled with or did incorrectly. Since this is a statistics class it involves doing math problems (not memorization), I felt testing myself on the information would be the best way to see what I knew. In Mind for Numbers, it says this is one of the best ways to study for a math related test. Since I will be taking the self-made test I three days before my actual test, I can have time to make another one if I feel like I need to. I received a 93 on this test. Comparing this to the grades I made on my tests from when I took a statics class freshmen year, I did very well, considering I made Cs or a very low B.
