WHY THEY ARE STILL DIFFICULT COURSES
There are possible reasons why some courses seem very difficult to you. At least, considering the fact that the courses are not difficult for everybody. Consider the following possible reasons:
- You heard that the course is very difficult and you believed
- You lack the basic concepts
- The course has bulky topics
- You tried to learn it all on your own
- Because you are not good at keyword analysis
- You don’t really understand the student.txt concept used
- The approach you used was not it practical
- You were not well thought
Now, let’s try to go into details a little.
POWERFUL WAYS TO UNDERSTAND DIFFICULT COURSES
Most of our challenges are more of mental than physical. Do not let what people say about the course be your reality. Passion can make you learn difficult courses quickly. Be Passionate to learn the difficult courses.
GO BACK TO THE ROOT
I have discovered that some of our challenges is because we never understood the background of the course. You cannot under the types of NOUN if you do not have proper understanding of what a NOUN really is. Always start with the basics of the course. Going back to the root is an effective memory strategy.
BREAK IT DOWN
Course with bulky topics seem more difficult to understand. What I normally do is to break them down into simpler units and then begin to look at each unit. Do not try to read everything at once. It will make things more difficult for you. The break down approach makes you understand a subject better.
No man is an Island. Like I said earlier, the course is not difficult for everybody. Therefore, meet those who understand it for any area you need help. Just take the step and you will certainly get help
GO FOR KEYWORDS
For every topic, there is a key point. Understand the keywords in every chapter of the difficult course. Do not spend more time on the supporting points. If you can get the main point, you will get the full points. With this, you can learn a subject in one day.
If you are a regular visitor of FlashLearners, you should be familiar with student.txt concept. Full understanding of student.txt will put all the difficult courses under your feet. You may want to read the Ultimate guide to understanding student.tx here
PRACTICE THROUGH LEARNING
Do not let academic pressure make you give up on understanding difficult courses. Practicing through learning can be in various ways. Viz
- Answer questions based on what you have read
- Explain what you lean to yourself, in your own words
- Close the book and write down what you can still remember from what you read
- Record the chapters and listen to it at your leisure time
- Set new questions from the text
ASK QUESTIONS IN CLASS
Do not be shy or too proud to ask questions in class. If you do not understand the lecturer, ask your questions. It is better for people to laugh at you in class than to laugh at your result in the board. Remember, understanding difficult subjects make you pass very difficult exams.
