Advanced study skills

This tutorial covers study strategies that go beyond the basics. We’ll look at something called the Corson Technique (highly recommended as the first technique to perfect), a memorization strategy used by memory champs, ways to hack Akrasia – your tendency to procrastinate on hard things – and more.

By the end of this tutorial you will be able to:

  1. Describe the 8 study strategies covered.
  2. Apply at least one to your own practice.

You can also provide feedback to let me know what you found valuable, suggestions for improvement, ideas for future tutorials in this format…)

This tutorial is available on the library’s webpage under the Study Help tab.
