So I have discovered a new favorite tv show, called The Big Bang Theory, I think it is the most brilliant show I have watched in awhile, it is both knowledgeable and humorous. TPB has torrents of the first season.

So I haven't blogged in quite awhile. Graduation is fast approaching, but after that are exams. I have begun to review over my subjects, because I think that reviewing everyday is the best way to prepare for exams. The BC Ministry of Education gives $1000 to every student who obtains 3 A's on their provincials. And if you are within the top 25 students in the province, you get $2500, that is a lot of money. I think that my current method of studying is very effective, review, then test using studybuzz, then actually study.

The best way of studying is to learn the material the first time, so the second time you see it, it will only be refreshing something that is already in your brain. Holistic learning is learning everything not as a specific category, but trying to connect it all together. By connecting ideas, it will be easier to recall a specific term, because there are so many other connections to it. Think in metaphors and by associating ideas with simple everyday objects. And most importantly, it is through sleep that most information is retained, so studying before sleep allows your brain to constantly think about what you have just studied, allowing more time for the information to percolate deeper into the brian.
