What was your best friend (AKA best study tool) when you were in school (or if you're in school now, what is it)?

Index cards? Highlighters? Quizzing? What helped you study and retain information better than anything else?

  • Index cards helped for forgein languages and definitions- re-reading and creating a storyline in my head worked for most everything else. I also came up with little tricks to remember definitions of things.. like rhymes that clued you into what the words meant.. gooood luck!

  • Silly dumb riddles or associating it with things that I could remember. Yes! It worked!
    Also, writing it or saying it something so many times that I couldn't forget it.

  • index cards after class and not taking notes in class taking notes in class made it hard for me to focus on and remember what the teacher was saying and when I went back to read my quickly written notes they weren't legible anyway.

  • I would read sections to my parents and then they would then have me explain what I had just read.
