    00:01 So let's wrap up this video series, “How you can jump start your study skills or how to avoid zombie brain.” Okay? So make a task list regularly.

    00:11 At least the night before, the week before would be fantastic.

    00:15 Be intentional with allowing time for focused and diffused brain modes.

    00:19 When you focus, minimize any possible distraction.

    00:24 Consider the Pomodoro Technique and not allowing any excuses, not taking or giving them.

    00:30 Make sure to prime the pump first. You know where you're going.

    00:34 Practice spaced repetition with pause and recall, asking yourself questions, intentional chunking, and using the worst case scenario note taking method.

    00:44 Don't allow the excuse that, “Ah, I'll look at that PowerPoint later.” Do whatever it takes to make the content personally meaningful.

    00:52 Remember, encoding, storage, and retrieval for success.

    00:58 Thank you for watching our video series today.

    Incredible lectures, this was some much needed motivation. I watched the videos from A-Z and they really helped me organize my thoughts and approaches as I begin my second to last term of my program. Thank you so much

    Just what I was looking for!
    By Jhevon M. on 30. November 2019 for Jumpstart Your Study Skills: In a Nutshell (Nursing)

    Very informative. Personally I struggled with studying for a very long time and have been seeking to understand how I could overcome this challenge and this series was short but very detailed and offered practical examples I could use. Some of these ideas were not new but coupled with its significance and new perspective makes me feel inspired and eager to apply it. Thank you so much, Ms. Lawes.
