Tips to Improve Memory and Concentration

A student's ability to concentrate and then remember what they've learned is obviously crucial to their success.  A lot of people seem to subscribe to the idea that they "have a bad memory," as if they were just born that way.  However, in reality the brain is recording everything it experiences, and whether or not that information gets stored is a question of concentration and the importance an individual attaches to each piece of information he or she is receiving.  Today we'd like to provide some tips on how to become a better student by improving your concentration, and thus memory as well, in the classroom and while studying.
  • Stay focused in order to get the information right the first time.  It is difficult to later replace wrong information with the right information.
  • Fully understand a concept before moving on to the next.  It is very difficult to properly recall something that is not completely clear in your mind.  Once the concept clicks with you, it will also stick around much longer in your memory.
  • Memorization should come secondary to comprehension.  Memorizing something that you don't understand has no utility.  Less can sometimes be more in terms of learning.
  • Eliminate distractions.  Let people know when you are going to devote time to studying, and that you do not wish to be disturbed.  Establish quiet and comfortable study spaces that are used only for that purpose.
