What is the best way to study? Show more Show less
Back to question

In today's fast-paced learning environment, students must develop effective study methods to help them succeed. What works for one person may not work for another. People learn in a multitude of ways, and can learn both in the long- and short-term. So, is one way of studying more efficient than the rest?

Complete all assignments

Completing every assignment over the course of the entire school year is the best method of study.

The Argument

By completing all given homework and assignments, students will be well-prepared for their tests. Simply doing one's work as assigned is enough. It is the best study method because it reinforces what one learns during lectures in class.

Counter arguments

Completing all homework and assignments is not enough. Although it does help reinforce learning, there is a distinct difference between homework and studying: Homework is for extra practice, and studying is for internalizing and mastering content.[1]
