Another girl being pretty does not make me ugly,

Another girl being smart does not mean I’m not smart.

Another girl being liked does not mean I am unliked.

I am perfect and incredible just the way I am, and any other girl is perfect and incredible just the way she is.

Girl competition needs to stop, and self love needs to start.

It’s sad I need to repeat this to myself

They know enough who know how to learn. 
- Henry Brooks Adams

At some point in our lives we’ve all had to learn and therefore memorize something. Sometimes learning, memorizing and understanding a particular topic can be hard. The question that pops in our minds before we have to study for an extensive exam is: How do I make it easier for me? How do I learn more efficient and quicker?
Hopefully, this post will provide you a partial answer to two questions mentioned above. 
The pyramid below shows how much we remember by participating in certain activities. To quickly sum it up: We learn the most by teaching others. 

Learning is a skill. It can be acquired and improved. Following methods and tips have been proven to be efficient when it comes to learning:
Do not learn by heart, sooner or later you’ll forget what you’ve learned
Have a positive approach
Take good notes (write neatly, use colors)
Use more or all of your senses
Underline only key words and cruical terms (approx. 10% - 20% of text)
Make a study plan
Do your homework
Divide topic into groups, systems, visualize it, make it more familiar
Make associations
Try to understand what you are learning
Participate in class if you can
Ask your teacher if you don’t understand
Be focused when studying
When studying take breaks (30-50 mins)
Write questions and then answer it
Be active when studying - make mind-maps, graphs, tables, summary of notes …
Repeat, at first more oftenly and then less.
Make sure you study somewhere where there are minimal amount of distraction and where you feel comfortable.
Every person has its own unique style of studying, so not everything will work for everyone. You have to figure out what style suits you. What I’ve written above is only a few of things you can do to memorize and learn things easier. In the end the outcome of learning is dependant on learner’s mental abilities, motivation, feelings, phyisical state, environment, family, friends and school.
