Biology classes expect you to master difficult concepts such as citric cycle, evolution and the DNA replication. Along with this, you are required to have a command over terms and topics like cell definition, monocots and dicots, meiosis and so on. It is impossible to learn all these concepts the night before the exam. So, it becomes necessary to have a realistic study strategy. Here, we have provided you with a few tips that will help you study biology in the most effective way.
Definitions and Terminologies
It is tempting to skip unfamiliar terms, isn’t it? Resist this temptation. Each time you encounter a new term, write them down in your notes and look them up. This may seem tedious, but it is a necessary part of studying biology.
Diagrams and Drawings
Drawing pictures and developing diagrams for the concepts that you read, will help you understand and recall better. We can’t reiterate how effective it is to draw diagrams while studying biology.
There is no better way of making sure if you have understood a concept properly than to teach it someone else. While teaching others information, the concept moves from your short-term memory to your long-term memory. So make sure to set aside some time each week to teach someone.
Flashcards are just as effective as they were in the 1950’s for learning biology. Write the concepts and the terms on one side of the flashcard and their definition and descriptions on the other. You can study biology using flashcards either on your own or with the help of your classmates. The vitamin chart can be memorized with the help of flash cards easily.
Talk Biology with your classmates
You will master biology quickly if you become conservant in the terminologies and concepts. Try getting together with your classmate on a regular basis to discuss the biology course content.
