hello it's Ruby and today I'm going to finally be sharing with you a university morning routine this video has been so highly requested and I'm sorry I'm only just getting around to filming it so I have actually not been sleeping very well recently so I'm waking up a little later than usual instead of 6 which is the ideal time I'd like to wake up I usually end up waking up at 7:00 7:30 since I have an 8:30 this morning I am waking up at 7 and the first thing I will go and do is put on my bed jacket I just love how old-fashioned it is and my slippers are from Bowden I've had these for about four or five years now then I will put on some classical music on Spotify and I will make my bed I really love to make my bed first thing in the morning because it just starts my day off in a really good foot then I would do 40 sit-ups this is just a good way for me to get my body moving in the morning I personally find it's a really good way to start my day and then I will pick up my hot water for tools and go and fill them up because I get very very cold and it is freezing in England at the moment so this is an essential part of my morning and at the same time whilst I'm waiting for the kettle to boil I will wash my hands and then get started but doing some washing up I usually leave some of my washing up from the night before from dinner then I will just fill up a mason jar with cold water and I will drink a whole glass of this and I will also fill up another glass to bring to my bedroom and Here I am filling up my gorgeous head with hot water I honestly love this hot water bottle so much when I'm back in my room I will choose what I'm going to wear today and since it was really cold I decided I was actually gonna wear a thermal vest underneath my jumper today it was it was thermals weather then I will head to the bathroom to brush my teeth because of course you always have to brush your teeth in the morning and I also read at the same time as doing this but I didn't film any clips of that so the next thing I like to do is use this drops of youth body shop facial exfoliator I've been using this for two three years it's one of only two products that I've faced products that I use and I would really recommend it and I will also have a cold shower because I think it's a really great way to wake you up and get you ready for the day hey Google can you get me my flash news briefing so then I will go put on my Google home to get me the news whilst I open the windows to finally let some daylight in by the way if you're wondering today I am wearing this jumper from Bowden and these trousers from Miss patina with a thermal vest underneath then I will go do my hair and get ready and I'm really sorry for this angle I thought you could see more of my face when you actually can I will just put some bobby pins into my head to keep my fringe tone growing out off my face and I also like to put on some face cream this is the second face product I use I will usually put on some concealer as well then I will head to the kitchen to get some breakfast and the first thing I like to do is just rinse out my water bottles or filling it up for my lectures and seminars this is such an important thing to bring to classes I think staying hydrated when you're learning is so important and I find I concentrate so much better when I have got a water bottle with me so this morning for breakfast I decided to have a yogurt Bowl so I am using this out Pro coconut yogurt with some frozen mango some fruits and berries and some bananas and peanut butter I just love yogurt bowls they are so delicious and really refreshing as well so then I would just go put my shoes on put my key on and put my coat on because as I've said it is very cold and actually a wonder I'm not wearing my ski jacket today because I usually won't waste ski jacket then I will just consult this list that I have which details all of the things that I should bring Who campus with me depending whatever the week it is so since it's Friday I did packed my laptop and attach that we had to read that week and then I just packed my bag and head to campus so after my 8:30 seminar that finishes at 10:30 this particular day I did go to the gym before heading back home and this is just because I had a social this evening so I was going to miss trampolining and I still wanted to get some exercise so I went to the gym to the 11:30 and then I had it back to my room and did some studying so thank you so much for watching today's video I hope that you enjoyed it and I hope that you have a productive you

hey guys welcome back to the channel if you new here my name is Ali I'm a final year medical student at Cambridge University and this is part three of our three-part revision tips Q&A series where you go sent in questions and me and two of my medical student friends we answered them a couple of weeks ago back when this channel was on like 10,000 subscribers this video is gonna be about how to prepare for university exams but I think the tips will also apply to people with very content-heavy a-level syllabuses or GCSE syllabuses syllabi syllabuses i don't know if you look in the description you'll find links to loads more videos that we've done about evidence based revision tips and if you haven't seen them already i'd really recommend you watch the first one about active recall and the second one about spaced repetition this video this Q&A sort of assumes you already know those very basic things because active recall and spaced repetitions are by far the single biggest thing you can do to really make your revision much much more efficient if you don't know about those yet then please ignore this video watch those first because without those tips it's like anything I say is gonna be completely pointless so in terms of structure we're going to start this video with me giving you four tips for how to do well in university style exams but as I said I hope the tips would also apply to a level and GCC students as well and then in the second part with video we'll be answering seven different questions that you guys sent in a couple of weeks ago and as usual everything's gonna be linked in timestamps in that in the description below please don't watch this whole video please look in the description and like go to the appropriate time stamp based on the stuff that you think will add the most value to your life this is probably gonna be quite a long video so I wouldn't like advocate you watching all of it firstly I want to talk about the importance of scoping your subject and we talked about this in a previous Q&A video but I want to expand on in a bit more detail here scoping your subject is really really really important I've had a few messages from people over the last couple of weeks saying stuff like oh I've got I've got a 70 lectures to get through in the next three weeks I don't know how I'm gonna do it the way you do it is by scoping your subject and make sure you have like this broad conceptual outline of all of the different subjects that make up your subject all the different topics that make it up and within each topic all the important subtopics as well and that's the very first thing you should be doing before you get started with any kind of original because I think a mistake that a lot of university students make and possibly this applies to a level in GCC as well is that you think oh crap I've got 70 lectures to get through and you start going through them chronologically and just trying to make notes and then we're trying to learn the lectures but learning the lectures is not a very efficient way of kind of imbibing information into your brain instead what you want to be doing is scoping your subject you want to have a look through just like as quick skim through all 70 of those lectures and see if you can break it up into manageable topics if your University's organized your course will already be split up into various manner of manageable topics so it won't be seventy lectures you have to get through it'll be maybe five lectures on this topic and 15 lectures on that topic and then twelve lectures on that topic and in total you might only have like seven topics now seven topics to get through in four weeks or however long you have is a lot more manageable than oh crap I have to get through 70 lectures so firstly split up everything you need to do into debt into manageable top topics and you can see more about my revision spreadsheet space repetition system that's based around kind of doing one or two or three topics each day and then giving active recall of those topics but the first thing that's really important is for you to have these topics down now once you've got this list of topics again don't think that oh crap I've got 70 lectures to go through instead you want to be thinking okay what are the main salient points of these topics what's like the broad skeleton of each of these topics like how would you summarize it in one line okay now can you summarize it in five lines with a bit more detail can you summarize it in a single page with a bit more detail I think another mistake that people make that I certainly used to make back in the day and that a lot of my friends used to make we've now learned better we would we would focus on single lecture series or single lectures and try and learn the detail like learn the lecture and as I said earlier learning the lecture is not very effective instead we just want to be getting a broad idea of what was in that lecture what the subheadings were right in this lecture about diabetes we talked about management we talked about investigation done okay in the next lecture we were talking about insulin specifically and how the pancreas works the next lecture we were talking about all the various diabetic drugs and their mechanisms of action done all these these three lectures were quite long lectures there's a load of load of detail in them but you know we've just summarized it in one or two words saying what was in that lecture and if we do this for every lecture we get in our heads a very good understanding of what goes into our course and then looking at past papers and looking at kind of essay questions that sort of thing we can start targeting the areas that we need to prioritize so going back to this again if you are in the position where you have 70 lectures or however many lectures to get through in a small amount of time what I would suggest is maybe like give yourself five minutes per lecture and stand and and stick to that only five minutes for each lecture and in that five minutes you want to skim through it and just kind of jot down the most salient points write down kind of the the topics and the subheadings that you want within that if you spend five minutes doing that for all 70 lectures that's 350 minutes that can very easily be done in a single day a single morning or an afternoon and now you suddenly have a broad understanding of what's in the what's in this entire entire subject so it's not 70 lectures to get through it's you know targeted topics I really can't say this more practically it's really really important to scope your subject that would be my first tip for university students or if you're at a level or GCC and you have very content heavy stuff scope your subject the second tip is if you have essays in your exam and I know in most university courses the exams tend to be essay based if your exams are essay based then base your revision around planning essays so again I'm going to the going back to going back to this extra thing let's say we have ten lectures to get through what we don't want to do is think right I'm gonna go through the extra one and then I'm going to go through the extra two and then I'm gonna go through lecture three instead take those ten lectures within a single topic for example and either using past papers hopefully they've given you previous essay titles hopefully you've had supervisions or tutorials or whatever where they've given us a titles but if not anything to yourself if I were an examiner what kind of I say what I feel ibly set on this and then just like on to the essay question like make make an essay plan and base your your answer around these ten lectures and around your further reading that way in the end when you've done enough essay plans a you if if one of them comes up in the exam and the likelihood of that is is pretty high you've already planned like a really really good essay for that so you don't even have to think in the exam you just regurgitate the essay you've already planned that's the best-case scenario even if that doesn't happen you will still have covered all of the content of the of the lectures but you'll have done it in a in a in a a focused way a way that kind of answer specific questions therefore you know you're targeting the material that's most important rather than kind of sometimes the fluff that we do see in lectures and in and in wider reading so first you'll be targeting the content in a focus fashion and secondly there is a bit of evidence that shows that when you have this sort of structure where you're kind of structuring your revision based around actively trying to answer a question actively trying to go for this goal of what is the answer to this question how would I write this essay that Rita that improves your your understanding and your retention of of the topic so there are a lot of different benefits to using essay plans that's the way forward if you're in this position where you have lots of lectures to get through in a small small space of time and you know your exam is based on essays then prepare for the exam as bad as it sounds you know if if you only have a few weeks until your exam and you're concerned about your exam the exam is what you need to be preparing for yes University is for wider learning and for a wider experience and this that and the other but really you know there comes a point where we have to focus on the exam and focusing on the exam means if it's an essay based exam just do lots and lots of essay plans structure your revision around those thirdly very quick tip if you're doing like maths or physics or engineering I've had a few messages from people doing those subjects asking how do you use your active recall method for math and physics I don't know I don't do math for physics at University I wouldn't use my spreadsheet method of active recalled writing questions for myself if I were doing maths in physics I'd be focusing on problem sheets and on past papers because that is you know it's it's applied stuff that is what tests your knowledge about although having said that my brother did maths and he made lots of flashcards for various proofs I understand in maths and some of these subjects you have to prove various things and obviously you don't want to be deriving the proof from first principles in the exam so you want to memorize the proof and you can do that using an key using any kind of flashcards using a spreadsheet spaced repetition system again more on that in videos that will be linked here in and in the description below and finally I want to get on to one of the most important points for getting through university life in an efficient and stress-free way and that is to really make use of people in the year above and in the years above that who have been through the course before you if you've ever tried this you'll find that the students in the years above are more than happy to give you advice like we are flattered like I'm a 60th student now there are students five years below me I absolutely love it when people come to me and ask me for advice though how do you how do you maximize your mark in this exam or what have you got any tips for this have you got any tips about and I think what a lot of students sometimes feel is that it kind of like like you know when you're in year 7 you feel like you don't really want to talk to the year tens because aren't a year tens in the like scary maybe people have this when it comes to university stuff when it comes to you know GCC a-level stuff please don't have this at all especially when you get to university this whole year group divide thing completely disappears as a sixth year I I loved being friends with people in the year below and is it's just like it's it's just flattering it's nice I I like the fact that I can give advice that I can share my notes and the vast majority of students that I've met are in the same position so if you are struggling with your subject just find someone in the year above they're like really not hard to find you can see them around campus or around your college or around your Islamic Society or your Christian Union or whatever watering holes you'd like to spend time in just find people in the year above ask them for their notes ask them if they've got any advice for you and generally just kind of try and make friends with people who are older than you this is one of my kind of biggest pointers for for university life when you're a first year you want to obviously make friends with you with you with your own year group but do make an effort to you know try and be friends with people in second third maybe even fourth better than fifth and sixth there firstly this is important from like quite a selfish perspective that you know you can get there their perspective their experience you can you can take advantage of all of the pain they've been through to prepare for these exams that you're preparing for you can use their notes all of that stuff but secondly it's also it's also just quite nice broad in broadening your like your network and kind of this whole thing about University one of the one of the biggest perks is is the people you meet and if you have been friendly with people in years above you then it just increases your circle of friends it makes everything a lot more a lot more nice you can ask them for advice they can ask you for advice if they've got friends younger than you and it just creates this nice kind of cohesive community of everyone helping each other out and just kind of just kind of on this note if you're a young student if you're a younger student trying to make friends with people in the year in the years above you kind of need to be the one to make the effort and the reason for this is that most we're speaking from the perspective of a six-tier and like I enjoy having friends in in years below it gives a different perspective it's just you know nice meeting new people but I would feel kind of kind of creepy if I were the one making most of the effort to begin with because it just is it just seems a bit weird oh I'm a sixtieth or a fourth year of the this dislike barrier you have as an older student kind of trying to be friends with the younger student Ally at least initially it just feels a little bit weird whereas for example when I was in first year I've had friends of mine who was a few years above me gave me this really good advice he said make sure you make friends with the people in the years above so I actively made quite a lot of effort to get to know the people in my college in the years above and the people in the Pakistan society the Islamic Society and those sort of things and a lot of them I'm still friends with to this day but I think if I hadn't made the effort if I'd kind of waited for them to extend this hand of friendship they might have felt a bit weird about it because it's a bit it's a bit weird when you're a third year and you trying to befriend a fresher it's just it's just a bit odd whereas if you're that first year and you're kind of extending the hand of friendship to the third year that's a lot more legit and actually this would be one of my one of my massive pointers for people going into the clinical years of medical school that when you get into placements at hospitals and stuff you want to be the one to make friends with the junior doctors the FY ones the fy2011 to be friends with you like I'm gonna be an FY one next year and I would like you know if there are medical students in my hospital on my ward I would love to be friends with them but I would feel weird if I were the one extending the hand of friendship it would be a lot less weird if they were the ones who you know were kind of being pally with me because then I know where I stand I don't want to have this thing in my head oh you know there are four Theo medic and I'm a junior doctor and on the female which is even worse what if it's seen as creepy if I'm like oh hey do you want to grab a coffee and we can go over some stuff you know that'll be great whereas if that fourth-year med oh good to be like hey you know are you free over lunch can you give us a mini suit of I would be like yes hella yes of course I can I would love to share my knowledge with you I'd love to impart some wisdom I love teaching and literally everyone who knows in this tradition so I've talked about this quite a while please please please make friends with the people in the years above you as the young student you need to be the one to extend this hand of friendship and in terms of preparing for exams this comes back to you a hundredfold because people will share share with you their notes their resources or their material their pirated PDFs of textbooks whatever you ask them for and they'll give you advice on how to do well on this exam so if you aren't doing this already please please please make friends with and then subsequently take advantage of people in the years above okay so that was my four tips on how to do well in university exams point number one scope your subject point number two base everything around essay plans if it's an essay subject point number three if you're doing maths engineering physics post papers of the way forward from what I understand and pointed before please make friends of the people in the people in the years above you ask them for help ask them for guidance it is the way forward it is the way to make your whole university experience a lot more fun and a lot less stressful now we're going to cut to various questions that you guys sent in a couple of weeks ago for the 10,000 subscribers Q&A I think there are four questions aimed at university students about lectures and stuff and then there's two questions like random questions so that me my friends Paul and Catherine we're gonna be answering those again everything's gonna be time-stamped in the description below so if you've reached a vid this far in the video and thank you very much for watching I hope you I hope you found it useful so far but please look in the timestamp to see what specific questions were answering it what time stamp so you can kind of target those appropriately or you can just like watch the whole video doesn't really matter whatever you like here are meet Paul and Catherine answering some of the questions that you guys have sent in how do you revise a year's worth of undergrad work in a month well so the first you need to do is scope the subject and then after that then decide which bits can chuck up you know the most essential bits the bits which are going to get you 80% of marks zoom in and those absolutely cut out into bite-sized chunks how do you make a good revision timetable I don't like revision timetables you do how do you make a good one I always make yeah I always make revision time to assert as I said the first thing to do is cook your subject the next thing to do is you every day you need to so you need to cut into into into chunks are actually feasible realistic for you to do it I think a lot of people come and come and stuck as well because they're like oh you know today I'm going to read three chapters and actually three you can the maximal work you can do is one chapter along with that in my timetable as well I usually put in the kind of things I'm gonna be doing for the day like if I'm visiting a friend if I've got dinner appointment I'll put that in so that I can budget the amount of work I need to do and the last thing which I'd say is also give yourself wiggle room day so I gave myself this days we should call spill days so spill days are just you know for me to play around my time within that block and you know for days when I'm procrastinating then that allows for that spill the next question how do you cope with a massive worker that you get in uni I've heard that with medicine you're not actually expected to cover every single topic before exams because there's just so much to cover again scope the subject work out which what the what the pointless detail is that's you know for those kids coming top of the air and spend your time focusing all the stuff you know the bread and butter that's gonna get you most of the box also especially in stuff like medicine the workload really isn't that bad I think a lot of medics and like my brother he did he did mercy he has really known about this because this is all medics talk about medics love to talk about how bloody hard their degree is and how much work that there is and everyone from the age of like 12 who's even thinking of doing medicine gets fed this narrative of oh my god medicine is so so so hard it's so much work it's such a dump jump between a Dublin University yeah there is a jump between our universe state yes there is a lot of work but like it's not that medicine is conceptually hard it there's just a load of content to cover and you can do it arguably something like maths or engineering is a lot harder where you actually have to think where as medicine you just you just using them right stuff and there are techniques to memorize stuff like you know spaced repetition active recall if you're applying to medicine or if you've gotten off of medicine or even if you're a medical student let's try and you know break this narrative of oh my god medicine is so hard I'm so hard done by because I'm doing medicine and it's just such hard work come on we can do it it's fine it's doable but I actually think this is more of a philosophical thing okay part of the reason why people think there's a big jump between school and university and part of the reason why people think that medicine is harder than I don't know another subject that has less content wise even though it might be more conceptually difficult is because with medicine because there are a lot of detailed facts you can learn it can kind of go on forever and you have to be good at setting that point at which you decide okay I'm gonna learn this much and I'm not going to learn all the you know hundredths to hundredths causes of atrial fibrillation because actually that's not what's relevant that's not what's important I need to cover the bare-bones and the basics first and then I can build up from there and you know it's part of the reason people find it so difficult is because they just feel like they could go on forever and that they've got to study study 24/7 but that really doesn't have to be the case you need to know enough to be a competent safe doctor and you don't need to carry on studying forever and ever until you know you tie yourself to death yeah very good point okay next question how do you get through recommended and independent reading quickly so this is sort of a subjects that require wider reading that give you reading lists oh my gosh when I was doing my third year you know most people do something like on a psychology which is at least relevant to medicine so you know where you stand a little bit whereas I apparently thought it was a good idea to do politics psychology and sociology so it was a little bit out of my depth doing an art subject that I had no experience of not even a level so one of the best tips that someone gave me was to read book reviews cuz this is a bit of a cheat because in a book review it tends to give you a summary of what the book said and then also gives you some critique of the book so it was actually super useful and getting through you know getting an overall idea of the text that I just couldn't physically get through because my reading speed was so poor because I had not read in those kind of volumes and since school yeah that is another tip that I have for getting through reading is that don't bother reading the whole book have a have a goal with mine read with a goal in mind I find this so like I I find it really useful to structure my revision around an essay title like do animals have a theory of mind then like all the 22 and papers that are on the reading list in five text books like I'm fully just intently focused on answering that question anything that doesn't directly answer that question I throw away if it does and it sounds nice I'll memorize that paragraph put it into my flash card deck and regurgitate it in the exam with a bit of you know addition so it doesn't like but with a bit of editing so that it doesn't look like plagiarism so some quickfire tips I would say first of all review papers are the best like then from there you can link to your primary research and secondly to just reiterate what al you said read of a goal in mind so for example for me usually I reverse engineer it I think this is a point I want to make in my essay then I go on Google and I look for research or literature that that supports it and then find the paragraph that supports it yeah and then quote the paper and then they don't need to read the whole thing it's all about quoting papers without having actually read them you find those papers and reviews like you know so for example in one of my psychology essays about IQ I were in in the introduction I would have said gender differences in intelligence and IQ have been being studied for four centuries quote you know someone from 1902 I obviously haven't read this person's 1902 paper or that person 1775 paper but I read the fact that he said that in some other paper and I'm gonna reference his and act as if I've read that paper you know see you go but I mean say you're making the reference from the sentence without actually reading the paper I think that's a good way of getting through the stuff very quickly or you can even just google history of IQ research find the right paper and then just quote him straight away don't you don't need to read the paper yeah anyway next question rough process from getting introduced to a lecture course and then steps taken to make the revision to material for it do you make flashcards throughout the year do you look at exams papers first this is asking from a by Natsuki oh hello so I'd say it's autos up to you because different people are different studying starts studying styles and what they prefer understanding is very important we talk that we talked about that before are you able to explain this to somebody else and then after that active recall is very important but that that comes when you're trying to revise it so yeah so what I would do with lecture courses is if if if the lecture notes are good I don't I don't make any notes at all although makers questions so I make questions based on the lecture notes and yeah I didn't that I did that answer them and if I can't answer one I'll find the answer in the lecture so that's kind of practicing active recall if the lecture notes are really bad then you kind of have to make notes because you have no other choice so you try and find a review paper try and find a revision guide try and find some guy on some forum who's like written the notes out for you anything to avoid having to make notes yourself but sometimes it's necessary here look for this smart helpful guy and you have a new course yeah ask someone like Paul Paul can I have your notes or ask you no friends in the year above you know from your own college or from you know the Islamic Society or from the Singapore Society anything there's so many so many people in years above willing to share their notes with you so you don't have to do it yourself crowdsourcing I think is the dream so while your mates right yeah I'm against the world which leads on well to the next question what is your opinion on pre-made notes we love them we love pre-med notes we do I don't really like pre-med flashcards because I think pre-med flashcards kind of defeat the purpose and making the flashcard encourage easy to think enough to you know actually make it a pre-made notes are glorious I want to say though that I know some people I know a lot of people actually like Marcus who who love making notes for their own revision like they learn by making the notes itself if that's your selling style then good for ya I think especially if you don't quite understand the topic you haven't quite got to grips with it then making your own notes can be a really important part of that process well I mean I mean from people like him then with after that made their notes they can you mean it they can pitch in their mind where that bit of information was and then that helps them so that's you then good fit yeah and they can share your notes with people who leach off you pre-made notes yeah so like all this stuff that I've been preaching about recently about you know there's no point making notes is a waste of time all of this stuff is purely aimed at people who are making notes and who are not happy with their results if you're the sort of person who spends eight hours making notes and you getting the a stars you getting the of sick results that please continue by all means continue making your notes but if you're the sort of person that spent eight hours making notes and then thinking nothing's going in then maybe it's time to maybe maybe rethink that try some of these other methods you know that's what I'm saying don't feel like you know just because we say making notes or sometimes a waste of time that it's it's a one-size-fits-all solution active recall however is a one-size-fits-all solution because active recall is a way of life great approaching the end a second pill to my question what is your favorite stationery to work with g27 Kjell blue G 207 gel blue pants yeah made by pilot you said all my exam like oh wow he does really well on exams G 207 pilot blue pens that's the secret guys that's how you do it link below and Amazon link yeah all my videos link in the description below I make like three percent commission on each one so in the last year I've made I in the last year made like 11 pounds I think today I made about 43 p/y Amazon this is like it's incredible multicolored pens you can like write stuff and then you know say say you are doing a bit of activity cool you learn a topic you then write down stuff you know about the topic or write down answers to your flashcards or whatever then I look at the original flashcard go hmm I didn't remember this this or this write them down and read next to it and then come when I come back to another time you know half an hour later I can do the same thing again and you know Lee but another color see which I've been forgetting remembering each time cool and my favorite stationery is an iPad pro with the Apple pencil because I've gone paperless and I don't believe in wasting trees I believe in wasting electricity instead he believes in getting lots of money from Amazon affiliate links for the biggest token yeah like if you guys help click on my affiliate links you can fund my purchases of Apple products please do that doesn't my favorite stationery final question how do you manage the long days during Ramadan in exam season any ideas guys I have experienced them before I find one thing I like to do is I get like you know one of the six packs of j2o I stick a in the fridge and then you know when it's time when it's time to break the fast I have my date obviously my good and then you know I crack crack open a cold j2o and then I just kind of drink it in one and I feel like a real I feel like a real baller you know like what what is a real baller what one of the businessmen wearing a suit and tie comes home after a hard day of work in the city pops in were poking a cold cold beer I feel the same as that that baller but with the j2f and another cheating strategy is just kind of asleep after fajar wake up really late controversial people say that kind of defeats the purpose of Ramadan but I think that's kind of what I used to do what I did last year in exam time the year before that when it was kind of over nothing but yeah good luck it's fine okay perfect that brings us to the end of this Q&A we've talked about a hell of a lot of stuff I hope you found something useful I hope you know you've gained something from this yeah if you've got to the end of this video you're procrastinating already go and save your day save your day yeah do some work but you know you you can still do it save the day

Software / apps I used as a PhD student



Views:5398|Rating:4.96|View Time:9:27Minutes|Likes:244|Dislikes:2
There are many pieces of software and applications that can make the process of completing your PhD much easier. Here I discuss a few that really helped me through my post-graduate studies, from the obvious reference manager to the maybe not-so-obvious apps for productivity!

1 – Reference manager

2 – Data analysis

3 – Writing

4 – Productivity

5 – Image editor

I am Chantel Elston, a third year marine biology PhD student. Join me on my journey as I discover our wonderful oceans and try to survive PhD life.

hello lovely youtubes my name is Chantel welcome to my channel and I have just spent the past three years completing my PhD and I just handed in my thesis and so today I wanted to talk a little bit about some of the softwares or the apps that I used throughout my PhD because doing your PhD can be quite a difficult almost soul-destroying task but there are a lot of softwares and apps out there that can make the process easier so today I'm going to talk about a few software's that I probably would not have been able to complete my PhD without so the first butt of software you will need as a PhD student is some sort of reference manager you will be writing up your thesis you will be citing you will be referencing you will be reading downloading hundreds and hundreds of different scientific papers so you need a place in which to store these papers read these papers and and also a great thing about a reference manager is that it helps you with citations and references now there are a couple of different options out there I think one of the most popular ones is EndNote but this is a paid software so there are some free alternatives one being Zotero but the one that I use my personal favorite is Mendeley I find a very intuitive very easy to use so this is the reference manager I have used throughout my postgraduate work now there are many advantages to using a reference manager and the first is that it really is a place to just store your papers as soon as you find a paper online there are generally web plug-ins and you can download that paper directly to your reference manager it will store it in the database it will automatically input the correct title of the paper or the correct authors etc but the best part about a reference manager is when it comes to in-text citations and referencing because I know Mendeley and I'm sure the other ones have a – they have plug-ins for your whatever word processing software you're using whether you're using Microsoft Word or whether you use in latex so as you are typing up your documents you're writing a sentence you want to cite what you have written and you simply just put in your unique code which you have for each of the paper stored in your database you put in the code and then it will automatically put in the in-text citation for you and then right at the end you can say build my reference list and it will automatically write out your reference list for you so you don't have to do this by hand because that's just way too much of a waste of time and you can also change the style of the references if you'd need to use a Chicago or an APA or a Harvard like style you can set your preferences for your reference style so really it is a very easy to use brilliant tool and you'll definitely need this as a PhD student the next bit of software you will need is something in which to analyze your data especially if you are in the sciences the major part of your PhD will be going out and collecting data and then you will need to analyze that data now again there are a few different paid versions something like statistical or primer but these are generally quite expensive and so the software that is sort of taking over the science world is something called are and this is a free software to download is a free software to use and it is exceptionally powerful it does have a bit of a steep learning curve because it is essentially a coding program so you have to learn the coding language you have to learn how it works but you know what I'm not a computer person I'm not a coding person and I managed to teach myself how to do this and I have spoken quite a lot about are in my previous videos my frustrations but really at the end of the day it is probably in my opinion the best software that you could possibly use so it's really worthwhile learning it and coming to grips with it and because it's so popular there are so many online tutorials and forums that you can go to ask questions so it's really easy to learn if you are needing to analyze data I highly highly recommend our the third bit of software you'll need is something in which to actually write up your thesis a typesetting software now I think a lot of people would automatically assume that Microsoft Word is the way to go but I have a great dislike for Microsoft Word and not only that if you are trying to type up a document that is more than 100 pages long Microsoft Word will make your life incredibly difficult and frustrating so the software that I use to write up my thesis is something called latex again it's coding software so you have to put in your lines of code in a monster text so say for example you want to make a word italics instead of just hitting the button like you do in Word you just have to put in a line a line of code and that will turn your word italics but really it just makes writing up a long documents so much easier because if you just need to change one little thing so say for example you need to change the font size for your entire document all you need to do is just change the line of code at the top and it will change the whole document for you it's really easy in terms of importing your pictures and your figures because there are many different codes that you can use to place your figures in exactly the right place where you want it to go and really if you need to write up any long document investigate latex learn how to use it and use it because it is much much better than word so as a PhD student you want to be as productive as possible you have a huge amount of work to get through anyone to get through it in a shorter time as can be done and there are two apps that I use throughout my PhD which really increased my productivity levels and the first is something called forests and this is an app that you have in your phone and I felt that it not only helped me to actually sit down and get my work done but it also helped me to keep track of my work so the idea behind this app on your phone is that you open up the app and you set a time limit whether it be 15 minutes half an hour 1 hour 2 hours you can choose your time limit and you plant your tree and as soon as you do that your phone becomes locked you can no longer use your phone and then for that time period you sit down and you actually do the work that you set out to do and at the end of that time period the tree will have grown on your phone and you can grow your forests throughout the day so it's kind of works in conjunction with the Pomodoro Technique if you are using that so you do an intense amount of work for a set period of time and then you have a short break afterwards and it takes away the distraction of your phone you can't use your phone and then at the end of the day you can look at how many trees you've planted and I've managed to successfully grown and you can see how much work you have accomplished throughout the day because you know especially when you're working from home as I was it can be very easy to lose track of time as you go on you get stuck in your emails you get stuck in doing this and you don't get as much actual work done as you needed to so this was a great way for me to keep track of the hours of real work that I was putting into my PhD the next bit of software or app you can either have it on your phone or on your computer is Evernote and this is very popular I'm sure you've heard of it before it's essentially just a note-taking software and but it's very flexible you can input figures you can draw on it you can type you can make lists you can do whatever you need to do and this is really great for a PhD student because your PhD is a very long endeavor three years so you need to keep track of your thoughts as you go along because you might have a brilliant idea right in the beginning but when it comes to writing up at the end you'll have completely forgotten about it so as a PhD students you need to make sure you have a note-taking system you keep track of your ideas keep track of your thoughts and Evernote is really great because then you can search for the specific tags that you've put in and you can then find those thoughts as you need to so the last but not least comes in on the more creative side and as much as you would try to deny it when you are PhD students you have to exhibit some levels of creativity you have to make graphs you have to make figures you have to use pictures that you will use in presentations use when you write a papers and use in your final thesis now these images should be in vector format which basically means that if you zoom into the picture it won't pixelate so for example the PDF format is a vector image and I used something called Inkscape which is a free software it's not the best software out there it's not really user-friendly I found a little bit difficult to use but hey it's free and it gets the job done and I used this to edit all of the figures and graphs that I put into the final version of my thesis you know every now and then you'll need to change your label or you'll need to change the colors or something and I found Inkscape very useful to do this so that's it from my side thank you so much for watching if you are a prospective PhD student I wish you all the best I wish you the best of luck and I really hope that these softwares and these apps will help you in your journey throughout the writing of your PhD if you have any questions or comments please leave them down below as usual if you enjoyed the video please subscribe to my channel and until next time I hope you all have a happy and productive day

Challenge: spot Petunia in this video! Let me know in the comments if and when you found her 😉

Here’s a little timelapse of some of the studying I did this week! A bit of physics, maths and medtech. I hope this can give you a bit of motivation – I always turn to Study with me videos myself when I need a motivational boost!

ANNOUNCEMENT:
Now that university has started, I will probably not be able to make a video every week. My goal is to upload at least 3 videos a month (with at least one of them being a tips video), and I will still upload on Sundays. I’d recommend following me on Instagram (@studytee), as I always announce whether or not I will make a video there ☺️

Thank you for understanding 💕

Studytee xx

hello everyone and welcome back to my first study with me and quite a while as you may or may not know I've finally started University and this week was my first full week of lectures the workload has been quite heavy from the start but thankfully we have Thursday's off so that will probably be the day when I try to catch up on work so this was filmed on Thursday and as you saw I started by making my to-do list in my study planner which is from Ruby Granger's company called pumpkin productivity then I started by finishing some math problems that we went through in a seminar the following day if you are curious I'm taking three classes this semester so that is math physics and medical technology the math class is an introductory one so it starts out pretty simple but I'm just grateful that things are fairly easy now because it will probably get complicated soon enough then when the problems were completed I quickly did some reading on what we had gone through in lectures this week before moving on to med tech so our topics for this week or epigenetics genomics and proteomics and since we had a lecture the following day I decided to go through this week's readings I started with epigenetics so I just went over the text and took some notes as I went through it I did this for about an hour but unfortunately my camera can only film for half an hour at a time so I only recorded half of it next I took some notes for next week's math lectures and these were on two-dimensional geometry and functions my math professor provides us with notes for each week and I found it very helpful to go through these notes and make my own summaries that I'd then bring with me to lectures then my camera died but here I'm back and I'm going through another assigned reading for med tech I went through genomics of camera and here I'm going through an article on proteomics these articles were in a pretty high level so I decided to write down terminology that I didn't fully understand so that I could search it up later then I looked up some of the terminology and made a quick summary of the basics now it's Saturday and here I'm studying physics again I'm just going through the chapter on freely falling bodies in the textbook and then I made some summary notes as with my math class the physics class I'm taking is also introductory but unlike in lots of other university courses I am NOT able to choose my classes but I'm just glad I can revisit some simpler topics before moving on to more complicated ones then I did a couple of questions for a math assignment it's not you yet but we had already gone through the topics for the assignment so I just decided to work on that for a while then finally I also worked on some physics practice questions that we had also been assigned so that's it for this study with me I do hope you enjoyed it and hopefully got some motivation for your own studies I hope you have a wonderful week ed and I will see you soon with another video

hey guys welcome back to the channel if you're new here my name is Ellie I'm a junior doctor working in Cambridge and in this video I'm going to share with you the essay memorization framework that I used when I was in my third year at Cambridge University that was the era in which I was studying psychology and I actually ended up winning the prize for best example four months in the year group and I've pretty much exclusively attributed that to this essay memorization framework this method should work for most essay based subjects but even if your subject is an essay based I hope you might still find this video useful and pick up a few tips and techniques along the way and of course everything I'm going to mention is going to be linked in timestamps in the video description and in a pinned comment so you can skip around the video if you feel like it let's just jump into it so there are basically two stages to this method the first stage is the creation stage and the second stage is the memorization stage so in the creation stage the objective is to create first-class essay plans for every conceivable essay title that they could throw at us in the exam and in the memorization stage we're going to be committing all of these essay plans to memory by systematically using active recall spaced repetition spider diagrams and flashcards the idea is that by the time the exam rolls around you'll have memorized so many essay plans that a lot of them will just come up in the exam anyway because you've predicted the titles and you'll just be able to regurgitate stuff from your brain onto the paper but even if stuff comes up that you haven't memorized you'll know so much about the subject and you'll have so many content blocks in your head that you'll be able to generate a first-class essay from scratch so that was a general overview let's now talk about the two components the creation state and the memorization stage in turn so the broad objective of the creation stage is to create a large number of really really good essay plans that you can then memorize in the memorization stage and regurgitate onto paper during your exam now it's probably beyond the scope of this video for me to teach you how to write a good essay and probably also beyond the scope of my own expertise but I will share some tips on three main questions and that's firstly how you decide what essay titles to pick secondly how you plan the essay and thirdly how you make sure your essay plan is really really good so let's deal with those in turn so firstly how do we decide what I say is we're going to prepare the objective here is to scope the subject and find essay titles that cover the entire breadth of the syllabus now the easiest way to do this is to look at past papers and look at whatever pause papers you have available and see what essays have come up in the past and you start off with those and then once you've planned out those essays you'll know enough about that subject in particular that you'll be able to put yourself in the shoes of examiner's and start thinking okay what's a good essay titled that I've not yet asked about if you haven't got past papers available that I'm very sorry to hear that you're just gonna have to put yourself into the examiners shoes from the get-go or you can actually go to your teacher your professor your lecturer or whatever and say hey what's the sort of essays that might come up in the exam what are some things other things I should be thinking about so having made a list of what essays we're going to plan we then need to actually plan those essays and this is the fun part this is the part that actually requires doing some doing some cognitive labor so the way I would do this is that I'd give myself one day per essay plan so in in the first time of uni I was a slacker only made like five essay plans in the second term I made about ten and then in the easter holidays i've really ramped it up and made about 35 different ones and the way i do it is that i'd start off with a question so for example do animals have a theory of mind and then I would use Google to get as much information as I can about that particular question I would ignore the lecture notes initially and I would ignore the recommended reading I'd start off with Google because Google was it was like a really good way to find the answer to any question that you want and often I'd be linked to review articles and review papers and I'd be reading through those review papers oftentimes the review paper would directly answer the question in which case I've pretty much got my essay I just need to turn it into my own words but a lot of the time I'd be following references from the route from the review paper and then once I'd created my essay plan I would then look at the lecture notes and the recommended reading and this meant that a lot of my material was hopefully more original than everyone else's because most of the students would have built their essays based around the lecture notes whereas I was building my essays on a random Google search so I would start off by creating a research document on that particular topic and pretty much copy and paste every relevant bit of every paper I could find so this is my 10 page document about theory of mind I've copied and pasted various bits and rephrased various bits and you know very random I don't even know any of this anymore this is and you know included links at the bottom to where I got the information from so if I need to return to it I'll be able to find it again and then once I've got my research document I spent the next few hours planning out the essay and actually writing it out properly so here is my plan is theory of mind a useful concept for understanding social cognition and animals and yeah I've got an intro I've got a preamble I've got subheadings I've got evidence and I've basically taken all of this from these various different resources from books from the review papers from the lecture notes from Google and I've consolidated them into this one essay that I'm ultimately going to memorize and as you can see over here I've pretty much done this for everything within my subject so this is section B comparative cognition which is all about the thinking of animals can an animal's plan for the future causality cognitive Maps the convergent evolution theory of intelligence do animals have a theory of mind is a theorem an useful concept and you can see here I've written an key beside them which is a foreshadowing as to what's gonna come later in this video so now we've done a research document we've planned this essay we've pretty much written it out based on a research document and we've only given ourselves one day to do this because of Parkinson's law that work expands to fill the time we allocate to it but how do we make the essay plan actually good a lot of things go into good essay plan but in my opinion there are three things that count number one structure number two actually answering the question and number three having a bit of flair a bit of a spice that you're sprinkling in your essay plan and I think the introduction is the most important part of the essay because in the introduction you can signal to the examiner that you're doing all three of these things and when the examiner is marking your paper they're probably really bored they've read hundreds of these scripts already you want to hit them with like a really legit introduction so here's an example of an introduction from one of my essays about weather judgment and decision making is cognitive ideological or affective ie emotional so over in that the historical view in social sciences has always been that judgments are based solely on content information with individuals being assumed to form judgments by systematically evaluating all available content information in an unbiased manner oh my god however over the past three decades a considerable amount of research has challenged this assumption by showing that judgments may be formed not only on the basis of content information cognitive judgments but also on the basis of feelings affective judgment it is now well accepted that judgment can be both effective and cognitive and here's where the good stuff comes whether it is one of the other depends on a multitude of factors number one the salience of the affective feelings number two the representativeness of the affective feelings for the target number three the relevance of the feelings to the judgment number four the evaluative malleability of the judgment and number five the level of processing intensity and here is the ultimate clincher for this I will discuss these in turn and ultimately argue that that generally speaking in day-to-day life the circumstances are generally those that result an effective rather than cognitive and decision-making so if we can disentangle all the verbosity from that paragraph what I've done is I've laid out the five main bits of the essay in terms of structure and I've used numbered points for that rather than just a list because numbered makes it really really obvious to the examiner that I've got a good structure I've also said exactly what the answer to the question is the question is asking whether our judgments are cognitive biological or affective emotional and instead of wishing watching Rhonda I have said in this essay I will argue that they are emotional rather than cognitive in most elements of day-to-day life so I'm telling the examiner look I'm answering the question this is what you're gonna get from me and finally I've added a little bit of flair hopefully with this stuff about the historical context I probably got that from a textbook or from a review paper somewhere and I've probably phrased into my own notes and obviously this is just my plan so in the exam I won't quite be using it word-for-word so it's absolutely not plagiarism it's using you know useful resources to create a bit of flair by adding a bit of historical context so hopefully this introduction covers all three points structure answering question and a bit of flair now I'm gonna leave it at that for this section of the video obviously you know there are entire university courses and entire books and stuff devoted to the art of writing a good essay I don't personally think I'm very good at writing an essay but I think I'm pretty good at using Google effectively and copying and pasting stuff into a research word document and then turning it into fairly legit sounding prose and then I think I'm pretty good at systematically memorizing all that information so if you want to know more about how to write an essay how I write an essay then let me know in the comments and I'll maybe try and do a video on it if I can kind of break down the process a bit further but now let's talk about stage two of the process the memorization stage okay so by this point we've got a load of really good essay plans that we have created in Word documents now the objective in the memorization stage is to upload all of those essay plans to our brain so that we can then regurgitate them in the exam and we're gonna do this using three main techniques number one and key flashcards number two spider diagrams and number three a retrospective revision timetable so again let's talk about these in turn so firstly and key and I've basically used Anki flashcards to memorize every paragraph in every essay plan and this might seem a bit overkill but it worked for me so what I've done is as you can see I've got keywords on the front of the card like Bower in 1984 or damaged at all six or Elessar tala 1997 or AA short-term versus long-term memory introduction I've even put the introduction into an ante flashcard and then over time I'll memorize these because pretty much anything that goes into my Anki flashcards because during the exam term I'm going through my flashcards every single day and I'm doing and keep spaced repetition algorithm I just know that anything that that's in my Anki is just going to get uploaded to my brain with a small amount of effort put in by me to actually actually memorize this stuff so yeah I've got I've got the keywords and I've got the content so basically if I put you know a paper rustling fare in 1987 I'm describing in the anti flashcard what that paper shows which means that overall I've create these blocks of content that every Anki flashcard is his own little block and that block can slot into my essay that I've planned but also if a weird essay comes up that I haven't explicitly planned I still have all these blocks of knowledge in my head and that means if there is a paper that's relevant I'll know what it is I'll know what the reference is I'll know what the content is I'll know how know how to describe the experiment and I'll just be able to put it into even new essays that I'm writing on the spot in the exam so that's all well and good but obviously knowing Tversky and Kahneman experiment from 1974 or muss voir and struck from 2000 those things aren't that helpful unless you can also associate them with their own essays and that's where the spider diagrams coming all right so the second prong of the memorization stage of the essay memorization framework involves spider diagrams and this is the book that I have made almost five diagrams in so having memorized a ton of content blocks from my essays using Anki flashcards what I've now done is from the 20th of April onwards I made spider diagrams one-page diagrams of every single essay so here's the first one about implicit versus explicit memory we've done you know various topics of the memory cognitive maps metaphor metacognition and the idea is that we've pretty much got the whole structure of the essay along with the keywords in the spider diagram so this is the essay about short-term memory bus a long-term memory it starts off with an introduction then something about single system memory than something about the two components and if we zoom in over here we see I've written G Plus C 1966 and that actually refers to the flashcard over here where I talk about our Glanzer and Kunitz 1966 and in my flashcard I've got the con and blog where I'm describing the experiment and actually this is just like a whole paragraph another GNC experiment this G 1972 is a glance in 1972 craic 1970 B and H is badly and someone else I think I've Bob Baddeley and hitch yeah in 1977 so I have all these content blocks in hanky and I've just put the keywords onto the spider diagram so that when I'm creating the spider diagram and I write G Plus C 1966 I know exactly what that refers to obviously I've never forgotten before years laters but I used to know exactly what that referred to back in the day and I've done this for every single one of the 40 50 essays that I've memorized and the way this would work is that every day I would just draw out the various spider diagrams from memory so on the 20th of April as we can see over here I did implicit explicit recollection familiarity semantics episodic short-term long-term memory then on the 21st I did future planning I did theory of mind I did theory of mind youthful usefulness meta cognition cognitive Maps gosh personality genes black-and-white differences in IQ intelligence controversial subject the Flynn effect explanation multiple intelligent well I was plenty very productive on the 21st of April 2015 but the point is that every single day I'd be drawing out these spider diagrams from memory and if there were any bits that I didn't know or that was shaky on I would look up on my master spider diagram or in my master essay plan or in Anki and I'd actively work on those so over time this ended up being like a really effective way to systematically use active recall to ensure that I knew absolutely everything and like in the time before the exam I was just bashing through these so you know 8th of May we've done this one we've done this war we've done that one another one another one another one another one I think that's all on the 8th of May another one oh wow yeah this was like about a week before our exams and on the 8th of May I've just absolutely bashed through and planned about you know I'm just like drawing out my plans for about 15 different essays so we've got our content blocks and Anki we've memorized them using Hankey we've got our kind of essay structures using spider diagrams we've memorized them using active recall the final piece of the puzzle involves systemic spaced repetition so how do I decide what I was going to do each day if you've seen any of my revision videos you might have come across the idea of the retrospective revision timetable and that was what I used I've made a whole video on this I'm not gonna talk about it in depth basically actually I'm just gonna show you here are we no here we go this was my retrospective revision timetables so it split up into section a section B in Section C so let's see implicit versus explicit memory ah here we go this actually works so on the 20th of April I studied implicit versus explicit memory so I've marked down the date as the 20th of April and then I've marked down all the various things that are than 20th of April and then I think on the 21st I did sum of B and C yep so you can see on the 21st of April when I active recalled these essay plans over here wherever they are I have marked them in the retrospective sheet and then the idea is that the next time I do them I am marking the date for that and then I'm color coding it in red yellow green whatever depending on how well I knew at the time so I've been doing I've done this for all the essays that I memorized and I've done it for all of my subjects within psychology so there's much more detail in the video specifically by the retrospective revision timetable where I explain exactly how it works how I'd recommend using it and why I think it's better than a standard prospector version time table but yeah that is the third prong of the memorization stage of the essay memorization framework so that was an overview of the essay memorization framework that I used to systematically memorize about 45 to 50 different essay plans using a mixture of active recall spaced repetitions flashcards and spider diagrams and that ended up going quite well for me in the actual exam I think about two-thirds of the essay titles out of the I think 12 essays we had to write I think eight of them what essays that were part of my block of 50 are like Idol I'd already planned them so it was pretty pretty easy enough to just regurgitate what I already knew onto the page which was awesome but then about a third of them about four of the essays were new they'd never been asked before I hadn't predicted them but because I knew so much about these subjects like you know at the time if you'd ask me any question at all about you know the animal animal psychology or if you'd ask me any question at all about IQ or intelligence or personality or short-term memory long-term memory or I don't know judgment decision-making I knew so much about those subjects based on memorizing all these essays that it was pretty straightforward to build an essay from scratch in about ten minutes in the exam so I would just plan it out using my spider diagram and then regurgitate usually using my own content blocks from my auntie flashcards but also just being able to write whatever I wanted because I knew the subject so well so the method ended up working reasonably well for me me and another student we want the joint award for best example for months I later emailed my supervisor and he actually said that she beat me by a few like you know decimals of a percentage point but because the two of us were so far ahead of everyone else they decided very kindly to jointly awarded the prize for best example Foreman's so technically I didn't come first actually came second but that would make for a less click Beatty title so apologies for that if I've misled you thus far anyway I hope you found this video useful and took something away from it this method worked really really well for me and I kind of wish I'd been more systematic about my revision in this way in subsequent years but after peaking in third year I decided that I wanted to other things ended up kind of reverting to inefficient habits like rereading and highlighting and stuff in my fourth fifth and sixth year but still you know having this stuff in the back of my mind meant that I was able to use my retrospective revision timetable to efficiently get pretty reasonable marks in the exams while also sustaining a side career of running a business and running a YouTube channel which I don't think I'd have been able to do if I hadn't been efficient with my studying and which is why you know all these tips you know it's it's useful to use efficient study tips because hey if you want you can put in loads of time and get really really good marks but if you want to do all the stuff on the side it means you have the time to do all the stuff on the site so that worked really well for me so thank you so much for watching I really hope you got something useful out of this video if you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment down below and I will reply to the comments but I'll also put a link in the description to a page about this thing on my website where I will put all of the commonly asked questions and answers that I'll be able to expand more in depth so if you do have specific questions about this method have a look at the comments have a look at my website because it's probably easier to read the answers there directly rather than trawling through YouTube comments and I don't know people are going to troll me for using a clickbait title but yeah anyway I hope you found this video useful if you liked it please give it a thumbs up if you like you can follow me on Instagram I post photos and videos and stuff behind the scenes of how I make these videos and what life as a doctor in the UK is like my brother and I have also recently started a new podcast it's called not overthinking and that's where we overthink about topics in daily life like happiness creativity and the human condition that's the timeline you can find that not overthinking calm and if you haven't subscribed to the channel then could you consider doing so I make videos about life as a doctor but also about studying videos like this and also about tech reviews and productivity bit music here and there so thanks so much for watching have a good night and I'll see you in the next video

well hello there everyone its 6:35 on a Sunday night and I'm just starting work now a little bit late for me because usually my operating hours I'm best with schoolwork during the daylight and as you can see there's no daylight coming in that window so alas Stu doing a little bit tonight not too much because I also want to get editing another video that's going up that you should have already seen it is the my my you know what's it called my reading list books reading less nonfiction that video which if you haven't seen it's linked right there I'm going to start by planning in my bullet journal exactly what I have to do this week it's a lot of prep work for my two midterms next week also on the agenda is some philosophy readings and I want to try and do the reflection I have to submit tomorrow for it we'll see how I'm feeling and I should also prepare for my tutorial that I have for a science course so it's it's exciting stuff you know there's been a lot of requests for me to do more student content so that's the point of this video to take you on a full week of me just focusing on school stuff that is what this video is all about and you can see you know how much work I do and I mean includes timestamp so you can see when I'm working anytime I am working I'm gonna try and get the camera up let's see if I can do that okay I better get working for the motion start Oh Oh this is now 746 I finished my reading and I submitted my what to call my reflection and as you can see I did not choose to take well I didn't take any notes for this I just highlighted any passages I thought were important because this is very a very dense reading a very heavy reading and I would have been taking notes forever so this is a really effective strategy for me for my tutorial tomorrow let me look at what I have to do so usually for tutorials I don't have to what am I trying to do here yeah usually for tutorials I don't have to prepare for math tutorials you're going there usually to get answers to some questions and then for a lot of other tutorials it can be like discussion base but this particular one involves a lot of group activity which was a not-so-pleasant surprised because usually for tutorials you don't have to do much work so they're kind of just like they're chill this is not chill I also for some reason thought it'd be a fantastic idea to take a science course a science elective I'm in business major so this is this is just a little too much for me I haven't taken science since grade 10 and I thought this would be super fun not super fun I shouldn't say that it is actually quite interesting however comma I just don't just don't know how to science anymore it's been so now for 38 the first quiz is now done I also have another one that's doing a couple weeks so I may just end up getting that done and over way so I don't have to worry about that course well I have a midterm for that course next week so I will have to worry about it but then I don't worry about doing the quiz I don't know I'm just I'm having one of those days guys where I do not feel like like putting attention to anything you know a little hard to focus on schoolwork if you can't already tell I put on a blazer today to make me feel like I actually have my life together which just usually winds up happening if I'm wearing a blazer so usually because I'm trying to trick myself into thinking I've got it all bigger than I roll on over here and do quiz number two is it really weird it's six o'clock oh hello it is eight o'clock and I am just about to start school work now I spent the whole day filming or shooting photos for my cousin Nikki health net nutrition if you don't already know and we were shooting photos for a special health and nutrition project then we shot some photos for me and then we went to dinner with her boyfriend and we were out celebrating my birthday which is tomorrow but a boom but a bang came home and now it's eight and I realized I haven't done a single bit of school work but such as life so I think I'm just gonna quickly prep for the class I have tomorrow morning fun stuff and basically what a prep session for me looks like for a course like this it's a history course I have tomorrow is I will just kind of quickly glance over there reading so I have a general idea of what's going to be discussed history lectures can get really confusing because the prof will go all over the place and this kind of just helps me follow along and put all the puzzle pieces together last time you saw me I was 20 now I'm 21 do I look different I don't feel different at all if anything I feel very tired because my days been filled with classes – a wonderful way to spend a birthday I know right but I have my day off tomorrow so I'm spending the day with my mom we're celebrating tomorrow so it's all good like I said had classes all day it's 553 right now and I'm going to take advantage of this to get like a couple hours of working and I figured I'd kind of take this opportunity to talk about something just got a grade which I was gonna show it to you but I don't want you to see my course code this is for a midterm that I wrote last week and for the past six days I've been stressing about it because I thought I didn't do so hot and I ended up getting a b-plus it's awesome cuz the class average was a b-plus so I know that I'm in line with my class I was trying to use the average as a gauge over whether or not I'm getting the material the same way that my classmates are and you know I'm really happy with that because like I said thought I did a lot worse and you know I think I passed the point of my life where you know in high school I would always really care about grades and it's like 90s were the things that were the only acceptable grade in my life and now I just have a more chill approach to it but I still stress out about it like I was still stressed the past six days because I'm like I I just I just I did not do well on bla bla bla I was thinking about how I'd have to like pull some serious miracles for the next two tests and you know your mind starts to wander and there's no point like future Kaitlyn yeah you gotta chill out and let's not stress about exams that we've handed in that we can't change I won't lie huge relief feels like a nice little birthday gift to me from my past self and now like I said I mean I do some work for my classes next week I'm gonna work on that philosophy course again I the same one that I was working on earlier this week by Manju this week's work and what else I'm gonna do that's really all I have time for let me get you a finer waste life give our hearts and soul at peace all right but you just wanna drink your one rather glass we are yellow um but as a side note I've been finally embraced one note I remember when I did my how I take notes video is talking about how I use the Google Drive and everyone was like girl what are you doing get one note and I finally finally did it I'm in love with it it's a fun time it all syncs up it's it's just great I know other words to be said so come the summer I will definitely be doing and updated how I take notes video why am I still talking to the camera I gotta actually do all these things because there's so much of it and I know 40 pages this is a side note might not seem like a lot for one reading I know there's people in programs where it's very reading intensive also I should really be talking to the camera and not um showing you just my hands but as a business student I am not used to this level of like readings it's 40 pages of philosophy readings it's not English it's very education II language like these are papers written by people that are are writing these with thesis is and it's all very technical and you know it ain't no casual reading session like fun time this is every sentence makes my brain go what here we go it's all good we're we're fine we're good 21 I'm an adult I can do this you

hey everyone and welcome to my channel talking with Tamiya lifestyle of the balm and brilliant know you guys so much for tuning in and watching this video so y'all this is based on the title y'all know this video is a very long awaited video I am so trifling I did not film this my 100 year because I was still trying to figure out what the heck I was doing so I really couldn't sit there and honestly have a study with you video because I didn't necessarily know if the things that I was doing to study with be as productive for law school as it was in undergrad but I found that the style that I use in undergrad as well as high school still serves me well in law school um it depends on your classes there are some classes where your study style might be a bit differently like might be a bit different there are some classes where it might make absolutely zero sense to do flashcards or it might make zero sense to make an outline because it's a very minimal subject where you believe wouldn't need to spend all that time creating an outline every class might have a different approach but I find that these simple things that I use like highlighting certain words or using highlighters in general or just writing out my notes as well as typing them out like I find that I typically do the same thing so here is a study with me video and I really felt that because I did 97% of my studying at the library it makes the most sense for me to film me studying at the library because I was actually studying when I filmed the video I didn't want to sit there at my desk him like act like I'm studying because I cannot study at home y'all like I have a PhD in real life and when I'm at home studying like I end up washing clothes watching TV talking on the phone cleaning up or sleeping because my bed is at home my bed is not at the library so it is very hard to sleep there my bed is at home and I am a sleepy girl so I will just take a quick nap in that quick nap turn it to be going into bed going to bit for the night so you have to figure out what works best for you find those things that might be a crutch for you enough for me sometimes I can study at home just depending on the Sun it's not it doesn't require a lot for me but lately I've been really needing to really focus on what I'm studying so studying at home can be a bit challenging for me maybe not for you which is you're lucky I am envious but for me I really can't so I then film me studying at school and what I'm studying in this video is I'm actually studying economics and pretty much just learning the material from outline and get to awesome making flashcards so you guys can watch it and I will also be doing voiceover just letting you guys know what I'm doing in that video and I hope you guys like it so the first thing that I do when I'm studying is I pull out all of the supplies that I will be using as well as just to get my things in my space nice and organized I find that this helps me remain productive and it just kind of keeps me on track we love the way I pop my tap I lose my cool dad use highlighters that I've been using lately Arvest to be low-cost highlighters and you guys these highlighters are amazing the colors just show up so great the tip of the highlighter is thick enough for me to highlight but it's not too thick to the point where it's going on to sentences that I don't mean to highlight so these are just something that I must have in my study routine my pencil box or some type of pencil bag is essential I keep page flags which I use to flag down important pages that have important content and assorted color pins have saved my life it really just helps me remember that one color means one thing while another color means another thing now the next thing that I use our flashcards and flashcards are really important when I'm studying for a class that's heavily vocab focused this class economics really has a lot of different vocab words so if flashcards are really helpful for studying for this and I keep them in this nice purple container it just keeps them from getting bent in my bag or from any of the trifling things happening to them so this is pretty helpful for me another thing that I do is when I'm studying for a class if I'm not typing out my outline I will write it out so for this class I'm actually writing out my outline from the slideshow that the professor provided and this just helps me look at the material for a second time it's really important to interact with the material on several occasions it really just helps you retain the information so that's what I'm doing here too you need if you want it I'm ready I'm waiting for you I'm calling the booty down yeah you like I said to get it if you want it already I'm gonna fire I'm going into pudding III air shows the type of girl that you take over to mama type of girl I know my daddy he'd be he'd be proud of his Eve now if you get a closer look you can see how the assorted color pins come in handy so far black I just have the topic that I'm covering in pink you can see that that's the actual work that I am describing and then I use the description for the word in black following that and then in purple I just put additional facts about that topic I find that this method keeps my notes very organized and it's also something that I do consistently so while I'm doing my written outline I know which color symbolizes what and it helps me for all-around memorization purposes once I am done writing my notes I go in and highlight important words and key facts that I want to remember so when studying for exams I do not only rely on the slideshows from my professors I also heavily rely on the textbooks especially when studying for law school courses because the textbook is honestly your law school Bible that's where all of the information is going to come from so this is what my page blacks come in very handy I use them like I said to flag the very important pages and I also just go in and highlight very important facts on those pages now I'm not writing out the information verbatim I'm actually summarizing the material and when I'm summarizing the material it's like I really understand what's happening instead of just writing exactly what the slideshow says I'm just trying to gauge what exactly it's saying and see if I can understand it on my own and I find that when I do this it's like I already know the material I don't have to constantly study and constantly review it because when I'm able to finally summarize it it's because I have a really great grasp of the content the next strategy that I use these studies for exams are my note cards now these note cards have come in handy for a lot of courses in law school and undergrad and now in Business School flashcards just really helped me reinforce my knowledge of the information I go through and I write out the information once again so that's me interacting with the material another time and then I just go and I memorize the flashcards i quiz myself on the flashcards and you guys will actually see the section where i quiz myself on these flashcards and when I get the answer correct I will put it in one pile and when I get the answer incorrect I will put it in another pile and then that is when I know that that is some of the topics that I need to continue to study a bit more oh yeah y'all drink your water too that's very important for my study routine is to stay hydrated I usually have snacks as well but as you guys will see in the vlog that I was filming simultaneously while filming this I did have some snacks that I ate following this but snacks just kind of keep me motivated but the cell phone is something that you don't need the fact that I have my phone right there is very bad um so I'm usually when I'm really studying I try to keep my phone out of sight because it can be a major distraction but as you guys see I've been on my phone for a bit [Applause] so I have my written outline I have my flashcards and I also go through the textbook this is something that I do for pretty much all of my classes I try to find multiple ways to interact with the material and this just really reaffirms my knowledge and helps me remain successful on my law school exams my business school exams and even an undergrad when I use this method it's really important because there are certain words that the textbook might use that your professor might not use in class but might actually use on the test so I just find that just being familiar with all the materials that are provided to you just helps you be successful on your exams and kind of gives you an advantage because some people don't really employ these methods and they just rely on what the professor gives them here you can see how the highlighters really come in handy the pink highlighter was used to underline the topic while I use the orange highlighter for keywords in the green highlighter for sentences that would help me remember the pertinence of the topic I was covering and now that I have completed my flashcards what I do now is just go through and make sure that I actually know the content that is on the flashcard as I told you guys previously I put the last card that I know the information to on one pile and the information that I'm not so sure about or that I got incorrectly I put in another pile and then I later go and review those until I get them all correct and this is something that I continue to repeat and it just helps me once again reaffirm the knowledge from the course what they talking about on your timeline that's kind of a little my sandwich my shoes I hope that you guys enjoyed that video I'm so happy that I finally got to film it for you guys and I hope that this can help you guys when you're studying or preparing for school like I said this is basic studying things that I feel like can be applied and high school can be applied in college human being by applying law school in business school obviously you're going to do some adjustments depending on the subject but I do think that these are skills that really did work for me but if you guys have any sudden tips that you guys use that really help you when you're studying or preparing for exams please leave them below so that I can take a look at them and see if they work for me as well as other people who might be looking for different ways to study but with nothing left to say thank you guys so much for watching be sure to hit that thumbs up I think it's this way I'll never really know hit the thumbs up I did that not that we'll be doing this which one of y'all be hitting this button it's a fee every now and then I get a few of these and I'm like what didn't you like I took my time on this video and you said you giving me this that is trifling do not do that if you if you don't like you just don't even press the like button but don't press this one that's so messed up but anyway thumbs up and also subscribe and share this channel share these videos and thank you guys so much

大家好! 今天的视频非常特别,因为它
是我最早拍摄的视频之一 YouTube和成千上万的人投票赞成
我从头开始重做它。 因为我仍然发誓这些技巧,大多数
画外音将记录在同一个 方式,但我给这些方法的方法
有点不同。 1。 每天将家庭作业和课程融入您的行列
规划师 – 这将给你一个整体 瞥一下你的一周将是怎样的
你需要花多少时间学习 会议! 2。 颜色坐标类 – 无论如何,
你的计划者,你的教科书或活页夹,挑选 每个班级的独特颜色和解决方法
这种颜色的色调变得更有条理! 3。 制作自己的教学大纲 – 如果你的教授
不为您的班级提供课程提纲, 在学年之前尝试制作一个
围绕你给定的教科书或其他给定的 材料。 4。 制作学习指南 – 制作学习指南
你的教学大纲和每个主题之前画两个 盒子:一个用于中间测试,一个用于最终测试
测试。 当您进行其中一项测试时,请检查
你完成学习后的盒子 这一章你不会错过任何东西! 5。 始终参考您的材料 – 大多数
有时,我们的学生在课堂上工作 笔记,教科书和教学大纲。 因为我们在这里得到一小部分信息
并且重要的是要参考每一个 所有材料中的页面,以便您可以
无需快速访问您的信息 通过页面无休止地翻转! 6。 在附近放置仪表板 – 无论何时使用
笔记本电脑或活页夹,打开仪表板 第一页有便利贴,所以你可以
快速涂抹任何问题,作业或 页码。 当你回到家时,你只需要打开你的家
仪表板并参加这些笔记。 7。 打印任何测试,练习和考试
找到 – 把它们放在你的活页夹的最后。 这些都是考试前练习的完美之选
和测试,因为他们真的反映了什么 你会受到考验。 为截止日期设置闹钟并开始
在那些工作! 8。 凝聚 – 组织消失时
你有太多的东西。 在您的计划中与多个计划者合作
生活会使一切变得混乱。 如果你认为你需要第二个计划者因为
你没有足够的空间来写 第一个,这是因为你没有
有空的时间。 不要欺骗自己,设定可实现的目标! 9。 自定义教科书 – 大多数时候,
教科书是信息的正式书籍 很难得到。 制作自己的标签并撰写每一章
在他们身上,所以他们坚持 – 标记任何图表, 表格或图形。 一切都需要难以置信! 10在决赛前打印特殊规划表:
按章节和/或组织学习 决赛前的主题非常重要
因为它可以让你整理时间 你专注于每个科目,
研究会议和时间管理 11。 至少保存一个下午或一个早晨
一周的密集学习。 这些是你的“生命保护” – 当你
得到如此丰富的家庭作业和项目 你不能把它们融入你的日常生活中
学术常规,一个免费下午组织 你的学校生活真的会派上用场! 预约自己! 12。 提前做好准备 – 尽管大多数教授
可能不会要求你提前准备课程, 如果你有办法,那就继续吧。 抓一张纸,并对章节进行总结
你的班级将是关于。 撰写主要主题和关键信息
并把这个指南带到课堂上。 当你的教授重复之前的研究
信息,你将能够理解 一切都好多了! 13。 永远不要留下任何东西 – 即使你
有一个更轻松的课程,教授 不要求作业或任何辅助项目,
不要让那个骗你! 守纪律,成为自己的教授! 制作自己的项目并学习一切
你可以这样,你可以钉在那些决赛 他们到了。 14。 写下你的问题 – 大部分时间,
在沉重的学习环节中,我们想出了 大量的问题,有时我们只是离开
他们落后了。 将它们写在仪表板或小型仪表中
笔记本并问你的教授(个人 或通过电子邮件)。 你也可以在facebook上问你的同学
为此目的创建的小组! 15。 设置一个闹钟并奖励自己 – 甚至
如果你在整个下午学习你的 如果你不这样做,学习将毫无意义
定期休息。 设置一小时/一小时的闹钟
一半,然后休息15分钟。 永远不要超过2个小时的学习! 即使你没有注意到,你也会得到更少
并且不太专注。 16。 。列出清单 – 在每次学习之前
我喜欢抓住记事本并写下所有内容 在我的会话结束之前我需要做的事情:
我需要阅读的章节,我需要的页面 通过我需要完成的作业。 有时我甚至会写这些列表
在大学里,我会有更多的决心 我回到家后完成这些任务。 17首先研究最无趣的事情。 总是有类或项目

Hi Guys Whats Up! Welcome back to Doctor M's Channel, this is
Doctor M and today's video is about how to study a day before an exam. Before getting into the video, I would like
to thank all of my 11 subscribers. I hadn't even imagined that I would get 11
subscribers within 2 weeks. So, Thank you so much guys. Guys please watch the whole of video because
if you don't implement any of these methods, you'll not make it. And I have the most effective method listed
at the end. Now, tomorrow is an exam and you have a lot
to study. Its absolutely impossible to finish it all,
so what do you do? Well the first thing you do is skip. If it is a large chapter or if there are a
lot of chapters you need to study; essentially there is so much stuff you need to get into
your head that it is virtually impossible to do it in one day or one night, you will
have to skip the less important topics or lessons. Old questions and your teacher's notes can
be the best way of determining what is important and what isn't. The next thing is to avoid all distractions. And youtube also falls under that category. Now if tomorrow is your test and you're watching
this video today, it's completely fine because this video is helping you with your studies. But if you don't close youtube and all other
distractions including facebook, snapchat or whatever you might be using, or you are
watching some youtuber rant about another youtuber, its not helping you. So, you need to STOP. Next thing you do is you need to hit an all
nighter. Now I used to do this before any exams, even
if I just needed a last hour revision which I could have done easily by waking up early
and studying in the morning. But that's just me. I don’t recommend this to be your method
of studying all the time, but if you're not being able to complete at least the important
topics and know the answers to the frequently asked questions, you need to hit an all nighter. BUT because your body also needs some sleep
and if you cannot stay up all night long, I'd say you study until 12 AM and then wake
up at 3 or 4 in the morning. In this way, you will not be extremely tired
and you will also get a lot more time to study. But you'll also need to rest after the exams. Because you've studied all night long you
might run out of energy while taking your exams. So you need to eat something that will give
you a substantial amount of energy for the whole course of your exam. You might eat a bar of chocolate but that
will spike your energy for some time and then burn you out before you complete your tests. Coffee and energy drinks might have similar
effects too. So try consuming those foods that are not
rapidly converted into energy, like vegetables and food rich in proteins and healthy fats. Now the last and the most important method
that will help you get information into your brain faster than you think and will make
you able of accessing it anytime you need to during your exams, which means you'll not
forget it on the day of your test, is to use mnemonics. I've always talked about mnemonics and I have
promised to make videos just on mnemonics, because these are those secret pills
that you're looking for that'll magically improve your studies. You can use different methods. Suppose you are studing a history lesson or
you're studying a topic like the origin of earth or something that has a sequence to
it, than you can study these by creating a story and visualising the story like a movie
in your head. If you have to study random stuff like the
medicines used in the treatement of tuberculosis, than you can make acronyms like PRISE which
stands for Pyrizinamide, Rifampicin, Isoniazid, Streptomycin and Ethambutol. If you have to study things in exact order
like say the steps of a chemical reaction or say the factors that determine the quality
of life, you need to use this method. First of all see how many points or steps
there are. Lets say there are 3 points. Now, associate an object to the numbers 1,
2 and 3. For example, 1 equals to Gun, 2 equals to Shoe And 3 equals to Tree. Remember these need to rhyme or else you'll
forget it. Now, say the first factor for a good quality
of life is Nutrition. So you'll need to visualize a person shooting
a gun, but instead of bullets, oranges are flying out of it. Lets say the second point is Education. Now, visualize that you are in your school,
which is this massive shoe. And lets say the third point is Health. Now imagine there is a huge tree, which has
long branches, but instead of leaves, it has stethoscopes hanging down from them. The beauty of this method is that you can
remember stuff as you read it and in the exact sequence. You'll not forget it because you have taken
an information and converted into a visual memory. And visual memories are often long term memories. This will save a massive amount of time and
energy and you can study a lot and not forget what you studied. But as you have already noticed, you need
to visualize that means you need to imagine these things like a movie scene in your head,
you need to make it strange and weird otherwise you will forget it and you need to have that
object that you associate with numbers like the gun shoe and tree in my example in the
visualizations itself. You can make your own weird visualizations
and can remember hundreds of points in just a matter of few minutes. And hence guys, this was my video on how to
study a day before a test. If you liked the video please hit the like

what is up guys and welcome back to my channel I am here representing as the edgiest overall eggs today couse I can finally kind of scrape back my hair I'm missing the length not gonna lie but my face is so around from thickness but even contouring and a scraped back situation to try and give me a little cheap facelift has not helped but yeah we're all going for a very round vibe at the moment that's just kind of where life is taking me but I have a very requested video today like very very very requested and it is a uni based one surprise but it's about writing the dissertation and it is about how to write it efficiently well yeah I guess those are the main things I just want to say first that I obviously not had my dissertation marked yet I won't know that until I graduate this have been a really requested video and because of a lot of my uni time has been spent writing essays and I guess it's kind of just a big version of this we got very good tuition on it and everything so I thought I would spill the beans and share the knowledge and also just about writing it quickly and efficiently because I know some people can drag on for months and months and I didn't have months and months in fact I had about two weeks to start and finish this lovely piece of work so I thought I'd kind of just share how I did that so as always done the insta story to ask for specific questions but I also have like an overview of how I would advise you to write here that I will go through first cuz I let you just ask them my story about the questions so then I'll come back to them later but yeah let's get into it first things first I guess is that the title now this is something that can really really stop a lot of people and can take a lot of time to get to but obviously it's kind of the most important part because that is what you are going to be writing about so it's very hard to start writing and reading and everything until you have a specific title so based on the title obviously you're going to depending on your subject depending on what you're interested in you're going to be talking to your supervisor about that but I know you knees have quite useless supervisors so they'd like don't even know that supervisor although they have to find their supervisor what based on their title or whatever so what I would advise is kind of working out a topic like an approximate topic that you would like to do your dissertation on and my biggest tip here is do not make it too big I know like 10,000 12,000 15,000 words seems like a lot but you can write so much on a really small topic so I would try and make it as nisha as possible and also something that hasn't always been done I know it's really easy like just to go through the very classic topics but just remember that those have been done in scholarships so so much so chances are that you're right about something and you might have an idea like someone else has already said it which is absolutely fine but you'll probably need to quote them on that you might not have found their stuff there's literally so much a scholarship on something that it's very very hard to write about and come up with anything new and any original thought which is what that the higher grade boundaries that we'll be looking for so I would advise you to go through something niche and something case study based so based on a specific person a specific focused of the specific work like whatever it might be so for example my dissertation was on cultural appropriation in Amy Winehouse so it was very specific and it was only specifically in her album Back to Black then looking at other things too in the kind of periphery but in terms of that that was just extra it didn't mean that I kind of was like Amy Winehouse and then had to look at all her music performances like things that were unpublished like all of that that creates such a big pool of things to look at and you're much better off having something niche and very focused that you can do all the reading you can on it whereas if you're choosing if a whole new Shakespeare for example then there is so much scholarship on it there is so much to read there is no way in hell you can do all of that so you want to make sure that if you are doing something at that that you narrow it down to like one play one book one work or whatever or one like even one criticism or one theme in one book but that being said you don't want something that is so unduly done that you find it hard to find any primary literature on it so it that's been kind of basically scholarship and you'll only find my blogs about type of stuff or associate for me there is only one person really who has looked at Amy Winehouse in detail in scholarship so kind of at a university and part of like a fellowship whatever but other than that there was there's a lot of scholarship on racialized voice so the idea of race in voice so I could use that to apply it to something that I used a lot of kind of news articles and blogs and that type of thing in addition to that rather than just using scholarship on her in particular and that's obviously a good thing to do because you can relate different things but the smaller the topic you have the better I for example really wanted to do my dissertation when I came to university I thought I was going to be doing my dissertation on Stalinist music and the relationship between patriotism and the kind of socialist realism basically the censorship in music in the Stalinist period and then looking at kind of how the music that was allowed represented something when I didn't have words or whatever but then at like first of all the kind of geographical I'm a language barrier that they would be in that was nowhere could confront all the literature at all then a lot of things are kind of censored it's very hard to look a lot of thing so as interesting as that would be that is not a dissertation topic like that is not an undergraduate dissertation topic as much so it might sound interesting you might get like tutor who is marking that who has spent their life's work on that so you don't even hit the surface of kind of what it is which makes it you're kind of already putting yourself in a more difficult situation so generally with your title I'd have something that's quite narrow and something that you can answer as well like a question yeah I feel like it sounds so stupid but if you're just saying like a statement then that's obviously absolutely fine and you can refute it and you can discuss it in whatever but it's much easier if you give yourself a kind of question in the title or not even a question it doesn't even need to be a question because a lot of amazing dissertations and not but it means that kind of it's a lot easier to stay focused or at least write the key questions out then when you've worked out your title I'd say well even if your supervisor is really slow or whatever you want to be starting the reading and don't just delve into the reading and find one thing and read it I would write a reading less based on primary literature so scholarship whether it's specifically related to what you're doing or something that could be related and then you want to find specific ones then you want to find probably some more modern kind of contemporary public discussion on it just to be able to add in little kind of adjectives here and there and show that you've really seen what other people have thought of this and that – everything – and then I would write a bibliography essentially or at least a reading list for yourself before you can even dive into it there'll be some things that you actually you start reading and you think they're not as relevant what you think there is nowhere I could engage with this whole text so you read parts of it and whatever but then when you are getting into that reading you're also going to find so many more things you want to read so don't worry if your bibliography is short at first because in each thing you're going to read there are going to be references to so footnotes or whatever they're going to point to another book so you're probably going to want to read that to learn more on that or at least a chapter of that that type of thing so kind of start with a skeleton of a bibliography and go from there and you can click through to other things and you can learn other things in that way okay so then obviously when you're starting the reading or what I did was I had a reading template so I just made a template on my pages documental you can do Word documents Google Docs whatever you use and it basically had title it had like my dissertation title and then it was like a reading like document whatever and then it had title it had access date it had URL so link to wherever I found it whether it's online whatever or just like all of that the author and then I had a summary and I had a key facts section and I did the reading and then at the end of it obviously I'd have all the kind of fact file details at the top and then at the end of it I would say kind of okay what were the key facts of this article or this paper or whatever and I put them in and then I'd also put a summary of kind of like the whole thing and the way it works you're often going to find that to think in the abstract or in the introduc because usually people will set up their argument in that way and that really really really helped me to be able to come back to something and be able to look at it and be like is it was it in here the thing I'm thinking about and then first of all I had all the notes my notes also color-coded based on the different things that I thought I would be addressing so in my dissertation that was race voice and Amy in particular and so I had them color coded and then when I did my notes I would do that and I put in bold anything that I think would be central to my argument and I know this seems quite like extensive but it means that you never have to go back and reread a whole paper which is a really key thing because obviously you then go and you're looking for a particular quote that type of thing you're much better off just having a quotes back for each thing and then what I actually did at the end when I had read all of my things and I had my quotes banks is that I transferred all the bold quotes of each color into like a race document a voice document and then a me document so that I'd have those four the chapters are late today and I thought I was being kind of overly extra at the time I was doing that but that's kind of how I like to do things to make sure I'm in the know with what I'm doing but it actually meant that when I came to writing my chapters in particular it was really easy just to add all the quotes in and then be able to put base my argument kind of on top of that and slot the quotes in one thing we needed so I was never like going and looking for a quote to support my argument it was all in a race document a voice document or an ami document so it meant that I could once I'd kind of established what my chapters were going to be and then what my points were going to be within those chapters I could already add the quotes in that were appropriate to those and reference them and go from there so that was really really helpful and may sound overly kind of you know but actually was so so useful when I came to writing it and meant that I hadn't done the reading and then be like sick like I kind of know but I don't know where I'm going with this whatever it meant that I had like a lot more detail in terms of where I wanted to go and how I wanted to write it and everything I look like such an egg I actually have just tried to buy my own egginess do you like your eggs in the morning that grass okay my next thing is about referencing wonder like how what referencing is best for your course now this depends on what the usual thing is in scholarship on your course for Social Sciences for example it might be different what you're doing but I use Harvard and because mine's not like entirely music it is a social sciences paper because of its like race relations like that type of thing and it's looking a lot more at that than the specific music and then I used Harvard referencing and you want to get to grips with that and you want to work out how you're going to be doing that and if you haven't referenced before then there are so many articles on kind of like what referencing you should be using your university might tell you mine doesn't but the main thing is just that it is consistent throughout so if you can't find out and you're really worried about it it's fine as long as the referencing is the same style of referencing for all of it so if you're using Harvard referencing if you're using Chicago if you're using APA whatever it might be it means that you can actually like everything's referenced in the same way so the way that Harvard works for example is that you have like a quotation or an idea or whatever and then I'll have brackets author an author certainly surname comma the year it was written and then the page number and then at the end you'll have a lift list of references which says like basically what that is so that's pretty important that you just keep that consistent don't worry too much about the type of referencing you're doing your course may specify it you may see the same type of referencing and all your reading that's great for you but because my subjects that can vary across over things I could be doing one paper on specific music could be doing one paper on what social science II like all of that it means that I kind of have different things that I do but I usually use Harvard referencing and what can make that a lot easier is using a referencing tool so I actually just used cycnus for me online and I just got an account with that everything will be linked down below by the way um but essentially what that meant was that I kind of added to my Wrigley ography as I went along whether it was an article a book a journal whatever it might have been I would just type in the title it would cite it I'd add in like the year or whatever if it didn't have it all the page numbers for that specific specific article of a journal or that of thing and then I would go from there so that was helpful for me because that means that also at the end I can just export my bibliography and it's just all there a key thing that you want to do kind of from the beginning is planning and now obviously this is going to go through different stages of detail as you guys know I for example I've submitted a more detailed plan last term that type of thing you're already going to have a slight idea of what your plans going to be so what you're going to mention what type of paragraphs you're gonna have what type of chapters you're gonna have and you want to you'll obviously build on that as you do more reading so I thought mine would be a certain thing and then it actually completely changed but keeping plans at different stages it's really really important so if you have so what I did was I kind of knew my title I had my introduction I had what I was gonna say in my introduction so kind of a kind of overview of my essay as it was a bit of an introduction to the subject in my essay video I'll talk about how I do introductions specifically because that is a really important part of like setting out your argument and then I did like my chapters but then I added bits to them and I added questions that I wanted to answer within those chapters and different paragraphs that I wanted to do and this is gonna get more and more detailed as you go along but your plan is so important like I cannot even tell you how important it is there is no point you just starting writing without the plan because you will miss huge bits you'll repeat bits you will not come to grips of things it won't be as cohesive you have to have a plan I do not care if you do plans in your shorter essays you must have a plan when you're doing your dissertation I will not take no for an answer that I will be very angry at you if you don't because it just means that you can be as concise as possible and you can be as clear as possible and you can set out the argument and it will all be accurate and it just makes sense and you are setting yourself back a lot if you're not doing a plan I'd say my plan got more and more and more detailed until I actually wrote it and then when I wrote it it was pretty much a bullet-pointed essay with the quotations with my ideas with all of that that I developed out in two paragraphs and that's how it worked for me I would advise just doing more and more and more detail plans and then getting to writing it but yeah it totally depends what works for you but you must have a plan okay then more in terms of writing it obviously in your plan you'll have to split it up into chapters so I don't want to give too much of my dissertation away just because a plagiarism stuff and all of that but the way I set mine up I basically had four key parts so in an introduction I had a chapter on racialized voice either chapter on the case study of Amy and racialized voice and looking more into cultural appropriation with that and then the conclusion and the fact that I split up made it a lot easier to kind of tackle and me doing it in two weeks meant that I gave five days to each chapter so I did save like my racialized voice chapter I gave five days to it probably two three days planning and then two three days um writing and I just tackled that chapter at one point I think you really need to break it down into its constituent parts otherwise it's really easy just get so overwhelmed and not knowing what on earth you're doing so that was obviously really important for me and so I spent five days plan like as in I planned the whole thing basically in terms of like the questions I wanted to ask but it was probably like a like a 1 and a half a full plan for my older station and then I basically extended it chapter by chapter so like I concentrate on the racialized voice chapter I was treating each one of those as an essay in its own right because each one of those was around three thousand four thousand words and so it meant that I had like an introduction setting up my argument and the different paragraphs within that and so I'd spend three days planning that adding in my quotations adding in my arguments my different paragraphs all of that so that then when I got to my two days of writing I just kind of expanded that all into a chapter and wrote that in a more like eloquent detailed way but everything was basically already on the page by the time I came to writing so writing is actually the smallest part of it I guess and I did the same the next week or the next five days with my next chapter the case study and then the last thing I did was write the introduction and conclusion and this is because your introduction is going to be based on a lot of your argument and it's going to be setting it up it's going to be talking about the key scholarship that type of thing and so you want to make sure that you're not kind of just writing an introduction like I'm gonna talk about this so it's gonna be to give me like this like let's see what happens your introduction should be you setting up your paper as like any piece of scholarship would set itself up and would kind of be like this is you know what I'm gonna talk about this is why this is how this is kind of what I found that type of thing so that when you're going into it people already know if that's what they want to read for whatever they're doing so but I wrote the introduction literally last and a lot of people have been like tweeting will ever be like I'm still stuck on my introduction but other than that stop back your chapters first so you know what you're actually talking about in your introduction because there's no point you're just setting out your argument when you don't know what your argument is and trust me it will develop and it will become a lot more nuanced and a lot more detailed when you're actually writing it and doing the plans and stuff so do not get stuck in your introduction first so that is kind of all in terms of the method that you need I would address the chapters as they were as a kind of like as essays in themselves because if you think about it 3,000 words probably is the type of essay you're writing or I've done it that's kind of two thousand five hundred to a thousand words is a very standard essay for me to be writing at uni and just for like tutorials or whatever so it meant that I address them of that and it meant that it was a lot more bite-sized and it was a lot more tackle able good word in the way I wanted to do it and make it a lot easier to kind of just start if you think of it as like however many weren't some whatever then you're gonna be quite like put off from the beginning cuz you're like oh I've got to write ten thousand words and just sit down like and it's gonna be really hard so now I'm gonna look at the questions I have cuz I almost definitely missed it everything so I'm just gonna look at the questions on my insta story how do you even manage the stress stress of dissertation yeah I'm finding it impossible to manage it the dissertation is like a very small part of my year at the moment like I have the equivalent of two others to do as well which I'm doing moment but you've just like it's really not a big deal I think this is the thing I think that's the one thing I'm grateful well no I'm grateful but in terms of the workload at Oxford and what I'm really grateful for is the fact that I'm so used to writing so many essays that it's kind of like oh just another bigger one you know that I could split into smaller essays to make the constituent parts and then make it easy just stop overthinking it it's really not a big deal it's a big essay there's probably the equivalent to say four essays you can write it as such and then stick it all together and it will be great do not overthink it you just need to do it step by step you need to write down everything you need to do so but in the bibliography the reading the planning the detailed planning each chapter and you need to write work out how long it will take you I understand that for me it was a lot shorter time period than a lot of people are gonna have and so write down how long you can do take to do it and work it as a job because for the rest of your life you're going to have to be going to like a job whatever that might be whether it's freelance whether it's in an office or whatever so work it like a job you've got probably this is your last year of uni so just get down to it like it's really not that hard and I know this sounds so like harsh but actually like tough love like you've written 10,000 words easily easily so many times but you just won't know it and you'll write that in notes a lot and whatever so just get down to it break it down into its constituent parts do not look at it as like 10,000 words like look at it as what it is so probably the equivalent of four essays you just need to do the reading you need to do the planning and you need to write it in its different parts do a little bit every day spend a good few hours on it every day especially if you're it's the main part of your course and work as a job and not being lazy because actually just fucking light it get the grades you want to get and you'll be working harder than this for the rest of your life how many reviews do you aim to do before your final submission so I've just got my first draft I'm waiting for comments back on it which will probably take a while and then I will probably so because I've got four other coursework asses to do each five thousand words so as I said they're equivalent to two more what I'll do is I'll make sure why all of those paths so that I don't get stuck on it and then in the East holiday so I'm aiming to do that this time maybe if I finish ahead of schedule that'd be amazing so I'll be averaging at this station over two weeks but towards the end of term then if I have a week to go over everything and review it and do comments on all of them that is kind of perfect and if not I'll do that in holidays but I'd probably wear Andy's allowed to submit one draft so as many until it's kind of what I want it to be what is the dissertation and the station is the equivalent to a u.s. thesis I believe I think says here is more for a doctorate so yeah it's essentially it's like a probably eight to fifteen thousand word essay that you submit as part of or the main part of your degree for me it's an eighth of my degree loads and loads and loads of things on a question on a question on finding the questioner I've always talked about this but I'd say the main thing is just getting into it like just choosing something and going and it might change slightly as you go along but choose a topic choose a specific part of that topic do not make it too big and work out how to integrate critics theories / works to support your own this is a really good question because you obviously don't want your whole dissertation to just be a literature review so it kind of review of what everyone else has said then it's no individual work I as I said I'd spend a lot of time actually thinking so writing down your question and thinking like what do I think about this like having done the reading what is my personal opinion and then being like okay well that was quite like this person so you can say your kind of thesis statement at the beginning of paragraph so saying like you know the idea of and tell them what you're going to tell them tell them and then tell them what you've told them that is so so important basically and making it clear and in answering the actual question they're setting out like what do you think and then saying it's similar to this person with a bit of this person thing and all of that you can tie it all in together but make sure because the fact that someone else has done it before doesn't necessarily mean that you didn't think something so you've just got to be able to add it in a way that's like this is what I think and then like if you look at this this kind of insinuates that as well on this and this and this and obviously if you do find inspiration from someone else's work and your argument is based off that in like your particular argument of paragraph or whatever then do say that's coming from that but then try and develop on it as well trying to think more try to think what the problems are with that argument what the strengths are of that argument what is really really important is that you don't just quote someone else's entire thing you can take inspiration from their things and you can work on their argument but actually if you're just saying like this person said this and then have like a whole paragraph of what they say that's not your work you can say they refer to something as this and use a few word quotation and then analyze it yourself and develop on it further and bring in other things that they also said but you will not get any marks from just quoting someone else as well how do you find enough relevant references really struggling with this I struggled with the opposite and then like there is so much that like has been read about the topic if you're struggling for example to work out your reading list and then find the reference I can obviously then using it as references then I would read something and look there will obviously be in books you read in articles you read there will be references in those so they will quote other people and/or they will use other people's arguments that type of thing and then they'll have in brackets or they'll have in their references at the end so what help from that so for example there were loads and loads of there was loads and loads of scholarship that I use that wasn't related to Amy Winehouse at all it was related to racialized voice or the idea of voice and race and so I kind of developed those from each other I had one main text and I read that and I've looked at who they referred to and then another thing that and then for ones that were specifically Amy I look at those two Google obviously Google Scholar is Inc actively useful so Google Scholar is basically just google but academic articles and whatever your University's facility is for books in a library so for example or like for online things so for example we have something called and soullow which is search Oxford library's online and you have lots of online stuff and lots of obviously stuff that's in the libraries how much time should you actually allocate to get the first draft done as much as you can I guess but also don't overdo it if you have nine months to do your dissertation and not much else then get it done in the first few weeks and then go into as in like but obviously spend a lot of time planning if you have that luxury very very jealous but then also kind of go further than that and be able to spend more time developing your argument and all of that before you start writing but don't just leave it til the last minute because of that and work it like a job going to library 95 everyday or longer or less or whatever but actually being able to do it and kind of don't just think like oh yo love do times at this month then some of it next month do it as you want a job because you've got to immerse yourself in it to be able to actually have some like good views on it so yeah basically even if you don't have to do it in two weeks work as if like how you would a job to set yourself an amount of days a week that you're doing it even if at three actually do those days how you said you would I think another thing that is important is in terms of noting when you're reading you do not need to note everything but actually remember you're doing a specific question and you can note things according to that a lot of the time because I found it hard not to know everything so I didn't want to come back and have to read the whole thing it meant that my color coding thing and my putting that the most important quote in bold was really helpful because then actually once I transferred them to their appropriate like category of quote Bank then I actually didn't come back to the non bold text the majority of the time so if you're putting things in bold that are most important those are probably what they're gonna make your essay or what they're gonna like develop your essay in terms of reading do not have your phone near you or have it off there's literally no way that you can engage with it properly if you're looking at your notification every two seconds lots of people asking about literature reviews there are lots of work different ways to do this and I've never specifically done a literature review like before this point so I don't feel like I'm the best person to advise on it I'm sure there are lots for YouTube videos on there and information out there but I actually what really helped me with that was the fact that I had my template for each of my noting so that on each one I had a key facts thing and a summary thing so it meant that when I came to put my literature reviews in there so but as part of my let the start of my really racialized voice chapter for example I've did a literature review of four of the key texts that I read what was so easiest that I didn't have to reread over them I had my summary and I had my key facts and I have my key quotes um whatever so I could really quickly and concisely do that and you want to make sure it is concise and you're not just being like and then they said this and then they said this you can probably in a few sentences sum up a lot of what they said in that whole thing and you could admit that you're not going into that much detail cuz it's a review if they want to know all they'll read it from the references but it's kind of being able to just be like this is what they argued this is how they argue it argued it this is what they concluded great move on okay so pretty much all of the questions are the same they're all based on working out your question on time management that type of thing I feel like I've touched on kind of all of it but please feel free to ask any questions down below I decided that I'd much rather be helping on uniess a moment then on fitness stuff as I said just because this is why I'm concentrating on and I know it's a real struggle and I'm lucky to go to a uni where it's much they give you a fuck load of work and you literally want to cry the whole time you do get very good education and I know a lot of people who are you knees who they have the work but they have no idea how to tackle it and they don't have good supervisors and that type of stuff so I'm happy to help as much as possible I'm just I think there is like a he in the way it's taught and whatever but yes let me know if you have any specific questions I will do that se writing video the problem is I don't want to do it on an essay on submitting because the plagiarism but I want to spend most time on that type of thing I'm just trying to work out how to efficiently do it but also make it a good video so I will do that I promise I hope you enjoyed this thank you so much for watching and I will see you next time

hi everyone my name is Ilana and I'm from over on Mistral spirit I create organization and productivity type videos and today I'm going to be talking about my new what's oh my gosh note-taking system now that I've started University I've had to really change it up in order to be more efficient because there's so many things that I want to do with my time and to be honest that's also causing a bit of stress because I have so many high expectations for what I want to get done and it's really important for me to just step back and let go now that's a completely other video though and we can talk about that some other time but today I really want to go into detail and I'll show you from up above all of them my actual notes as well I have handwritten notes and type notes that I've been taking depending on my classes and requirements as well as the course load and I will also give you a few tips for making the most of your study time because as I said so there's so many things that you might want to get done with your time and studying has to be as efficient as possible just like a lot of other things so it's really important to do that so before I start I just want to preface and say that my voice is very lovely and raspy courtesy of the fact that I went sailing last weekend in the in the beginning of October and we capsized so it's quite it was quite an interesting Saturday for me and that explains my voice thankfully I've gotten better really quickly due to sleeping a lot which is miraculous and no exaggeration there I was listening to a really interesting podcast definitely check it out it's a Joe Rogan podcast on sleep and it's just so important there's so many studies that have been done lately that it's linked to a lower risk of Alzheimer's and cancer and longer it's some getting enough sleep gives you a longer life so get enough sleep that's my first tip going in to note note-taking and then just generally so I've had to restructure how I take my notes a little bit now I've also had to restructure the process that I go about that I use to go about studying because I really want to maximize the amount of it like maximize the amount that I get out of studying and minimize the time that I put into it so I have I'm currently studying commerce at Queen's University I don't know if you can hear that but that's in my hallway here I'm in my dorm room so I'm studying commerce at Queen's University I'm the class of 2022 and right now it's 2018 so I just started a couple months ago and when I came here so I had a very distinct sort of note-taking system that I've developed throughout high school which has been really really useful to me so definitely if you're still in high school or in elementary school take the time rather than focusing on getting the marks or even learning the material focus on developing good habits good skills and really getting in touch with yourself and with what you like to do and with who you like to be I would say but I I essentially had a bit of a perfectionist approach to studying so when I came here is a bit overwhelming because there's so many assignments so many readings to do so many things that are just required of me and in addition to my own expectations for what else I should be doing outside of school and it's overwhelming so the first and most important tip is not to be a perfectionist and to first of all like step back and let go and understand that nothing's as important as you make it out to be but then also to do a little bit of everything if you can so let me explain if you have a giant reading to do for a class it can be really scary to tackle that and it's tempting to just put it off until you know that you can finish the whole reading but when you get to class even having skimmed the reading is important it is useful because then you'll have something to base off of to base what you're hearing in class off of so do as little as possible and then build on that so that's tip number one tip number two let me pull up my list here is get used to the chaos so kind of building on the other one you don't have to get everything done everything that you're feeling is normal just get used to being a bit all over the place not everything's going to be perfectly in order so that kind of goes with also note-taking that is super organized and neat it doesn't have to be that way sometimes if you're more artistic I mean in my case I like to be a bit more artistic and it motivates me to study but it's not always like that and that doesn't mean I have to go back and rewrite my notes so really important make good use of your time and the other thing is being practical and efficient so that's what I'm going to talk about that's where I'm going to talk about my whole process and the like four main steps that I go through that correlate with the learning process because I like to have a note-taking system that syncs up with kind of my psychological process of learning I think that's really important and yeah so that's everything here so in terms of the process I have three different types of courses so I have I'm taking five courses at the moment two of my courses are very reading heavy so there's like I'll just hours of reading to do every week two of my courses are calculus courses so very math heavy lots of for one of them I have to do the lectures before a class meaning I have to watch the video lectures before class take notes on that and then when I go to class it's just to answer questions I might have about the problems and then one of them is accounting so that's kind of in between the two so that gives you a bit of a range for whatever courses you might have to figure out and get ideas from my own note taking systems so really important to go through the main learning processes so first of all is first contact so in general I'll talk generally first and then I'll have my camera and show you exactly how I do it for each of my courses so talking generally is first contact so that's when you first do your readings and it's important to do this fast because as I said if you sit down and read through everything detail by detail you are never gonna start doing that in the first place so really important to read through this fast I like I prefer to not take notes or minimally take notes and I'll tell you what that means in the specific courses during this stage I tried annotating for a while and I've also done a lot of research on annotating and I think that it really segments your learning process if you're reading a book and you're stopping to take notes every now and then it's not beneficial at all what's more important is trusting your mind is going to make the connections that are necessary to help it sink in and you can only do that if you are really letting that happen so you have to read or at least you know skim and let that person that let that process happen naturally your mind yeah like when you're learning you've got to work with your mind you're not just doing everything mechanically and sticky notes are useful for this but I don't usually write on the sticky notes I just like put them in the text if necessary or I create skeletons of notes so again I'll talk about that in the specific courses so that's number one first contact number two is organized so there's kind of usually three steps when you're learning is the learning the storage and the retrieval so this kind of has to do with the storage process it's so important I find to organize the material that you're learning into manet into manageable and distinguishable compartments in your own brain so when you're going through the material that you're reading think about a logical way of it out in your brain and kind of drying those connections and so I like to this is kind of when I take my notes either by hand or typed that's when I organize and that's really the purpose of the note tape of note-taking right so we're like a little bit of a an aside here you know you want to understand how to take better notes you have to understand why you're taking the notes in the first place and I was thinking about this a lot by the way I've gone through a whole process of thinking about this stuff and even so my note-taking system is going to adapt so probably after midterms which are in two weeks I'll have another video I'll tell you guys about what I've learned about my note-taking system since then but essentially the main two things I think that are important and they're like the reasons why we take notes are first of all to make order of disordered information and number two is to record difficult information in order to highlight it as information that needs more of our time so either while we are writing the notes or when we're memorizing if these two things weren't important and there's no reason to take notes in the first place so that's why we read for fun and we don't take notes but these are two things that make taking notes worthwhile so keep that in mind and when you're taking notes take them with this in mind don't just take notes for the sake of having complete notes or for having them look pretty so going back circling back first contact organize then number three is practice applying so important because I realized myself when I was doing my accounting work for example I was sort of blocked in the fact that I hadn't done the readings yet and I was like okay I can't do the readings until I've done sorry I can't do the practice questions until I've done the readings oh my gosh no but then because I was working and that's a really nice thing about poo my god no I always do this okay I always my leg presses on the mechanism to like put my chair lower sorry that's really embarrassing and so the nice thing about being in university is that there is a lot of people around you that you can work with and I was working on accounting and my friend said that my friend wanted to do the practice questions and so I ended up doing the practice questions and I realized that having done the readings was really not that important anyways because I was doing the practice questions and then that allowed me to really understand what I didn't know because you really you don't know what there is that you don't know until you try recalling it or you try putting it into practice and so it really helped to realize that I came when I came to that realization thanks to my friend and so it's so important to to practice applying the information and this usually comes in two steps that's why I originally said there's four steps first of all is during the lecture so I like to do the readings in the notes before the lectures if it's at all possible it's not always possible and then in the lectures and I add information and so I practice applying the information to what the instructor is saying and making those connections and then the second part is when I am studying or when I'm doing practice questions so studying can include highlighting the information with my highlighting system or you know reading over it discussing it with a friend and then practice recalling can also be doing practice questions and so those are all really good ways to check what you know and then you always have access to the textbook right so if there's no reason to make notes that are literally like detailed explanations of what's in the textbook when you're doing the practice questions and if there's something you don't know just refer back to the textbook and that's what I like to use my notes to pinpoint information that I hadn't originally come across as information that's relevant and in that should be that should take more of my time and that I should focus more on so those are the four steps that I use take and then depending there's a few like course specific tips I have and then I'll go in even more detail with my course specifics so with fast paced math courses that's when I take notes by hand so it's a little counterintuitive but for when I want to work faster and take faster notes I do that by hand when I have just a lot of content or I don't have to actually work super fast I take that by typed notes and for math in particular it's just so much faster because you don't have to format things it's much easier as I said with the organization stage or the storage stage to lay out the information on a piece of paper because you have it you know you can see it in your frame of view on the computer it's kind of a small frame and then also doing questions for practice in a separate notebook from the notebook I take notes in is important for my math heavy courses and occasionally before my tests I like to compile all the formulas I need to memorize into cheat sheets so those are little tips for that and again for all of my classes it's relevant it's usually helpful to review the PowerPoint beforehand or to skim over the textbook just to get a sort of a structure for what I'm going to be learning beforehand then for courses where laptops are not allowed that's not the end of the world I only have one course my accounting course and at first I thought oh my gosh that sucks but it also forces me to narrow down what I need to know even further and so I like to just take the notes also in the Kabam not in the computer by hand then for reading and content-heavy notes again my main tip is don't annotate so let's talk more specifically oh wait I have a couple more tips first and then I'll talk more specifically about this the courses I'm taking first of all when you're reading read for the big picture the first time you're reading so this is going over those four steps again and at that point so let me go back in so for first contact when you're reading don't annotate but index or put sticky notes for the things that you will need to make notes for later and specifically I'll get into the specifics now for my business management course which has so many things to read it's a hundred pages or more every single week more actually like 190 there were some times and it's just like really it's kind of dry material as well it's very interesting but it's just hard to get through and when I'm reading if I stop every now and then to actually take the notes I won't remember a single thing I read and so that's the important thing when you're typing your notes is it you know there's a ton of studies like oh you should handwrite your notes because if you type your notes you're not gonna remember anything and sure that's sometimes true but if you type your notes in a way that you're actively doing it and you're thinking about what you're doing then you're fine so same thing when I read for this business management course I like to read fully and then just kind of take very take like the skeleton of the notes like just the headers and then once I've done the reading I go back in and I fill the information in and the whole time I'm thinking about the big picture and the main categories of information that I'm taking in and I put sticky notes for anything that I might have questions about or clarifications that I need to check in with so when the lecture comes around I ask those things so that's during first contact and during organizing then during practice applying which is kind of the lecture part of that I ask those questions which is so important because honestly like the two minutes it takes to ask a question in class and like the little stress that you get from putting up your hand is totally worth it considering that if you hadn't asked that question and you tried to tackle it on your own it would have taken maybe like 15 minutes of your time to look up on Google so you know you got to make those choices sometimes and just go for it and then finally the last thing which is kind of a study and the recall part of it do the practice questions and highlight further information and categorize even further so it's kind of a cycle of like taking in information categorizing it organizing it taking in a bit more of the information testing whether you know it categorizing and so on but the testing part shouldn't be neglected okay I'm gonna put you up here and we'll go through a couple of my courses and the notes that I have for the courses hello this is so exciting I haven't done a video here and it's you know in my dorm room in this fashion so okay I'm going to start with my typed notes because I have my laptop right here so I might as well note that I have a surface pro which I'm very frugal and slash skimpy when it comes is that the word I hope that is word when it comes to buying new technology which is why I'm still using my phone to film although I'm hoping to get a deal maybe Black Friday or when Christmas rolls around Boxing Day anyway um but I realized this is an investment that was so worth it and I should have done way sooner but I didn't so if you guys are you know debating whether to buy a piece of technology I mean of course do your research but sometimes it's really worth it you know invest in yourself treat yourself so this piece of technology is beautiful I love it first of all I can write on it this way and stuff so these are my things for mistral spirits so I you I've been using OneNote lately for my types notes because first of all I switched to this whole cool thing oh it's really dark here let's see if I can okay that's a bit better so mainly because this is a Windows product and a Microsoft product sorry Windows is the operating system and it just made sense and then also I gave it a try again I tried it once in I think grade 9 or grade 10 and I didn't like it but now it just I think they've improved it a little bit and it's so good definitely give it a try and I'm not going to go through how to use it and everything but I'll just go through how I take my notes for this class so my note-taking system is still here I've got my definitions like this I've got quotes addition additional information which is drawn in pink so for example like this blue is for key discussion questions so I put that here and then this is the answers that we talked about in quest in class so this is from the very first unit since then I've changed a little bit so this is a good example of what I was talking about earlier about doing the skeleton so when I did the reading for this chapter chapter 9 I read through the chapter and I wrote down just the main headings and I haven't yet gone in and actually taken the notes but this is basically the things I know I need to you know know for this chapter these are the definitions I don't think I like this whole method I think I'll just have the definitions in here while I well I go through the chapter and then at the beginning of the chapter there's some key lessons or key like performance indicators of things that we're going to know throughout the chapter and since I use the Cornell system as you've noticed in my earlier notes what I'm going to do is go through once I've taken the notes using the skeleton and just kind of move these to the right spot along the side that they correspond to and that way I can make sure that I've really taken notes on the key things because it's important to use the the I think it's called Maina textual elements of a of your textbook so they tell you what you need to know you know make use of that make use of the head lot of the headings is like very basic stuff but I sometimes neglect to do this and it's really important to so yeah I like to also just copy-paste these images so that's why I like taking type notes for this because it would just be too much time wasted copying this information out and again even with regards to copying information I never copy information that I already know or that's straightforward I only take notes on things that I don't know because the note-taking system as we said has two purposes the first one is to organize unorganized information and the second one is to pinpoint information that you that you know you need to put more effort into so you know that's only information you don't know already chapter 13 and 14 as you can see a bit of a mess because I wasn't able to actually go through the readings before this and so this was just notes I took in class that I have to go through and I'm hoping to have time for that soon but this is a good example and here I kind of take notes with my pen for additions and other than that like that's it if I have questions I I have this thing with the with the checkbox or things I need to look into the skeleton method works really well for me when I if you want instead of doing the skeleton method you can and you're reading out of a physical textbook you can just put sticky notes not writing anything on them but that way you kind of know when you're going back through the textbook to take your actual notes you know what information you want to take notes on or that stands out and also another good thing about reading first and then taking the notes is that it allows you to put into perspective everything you've learned and also decide on what the more difficult aspects and more difficult concepts are and like set aside the ones that you already know okay for my other reading heavy class managing work in teams we basically read a lot of articles every single week and what I do is I just have the article linked here so I can when I'm in class I can just click on that and open up the actual article if I need to quote something so it I don't take notes on things that I have access to in the textbook already there's a lot of things that you know I mean it's useful to just take the notes first do practice questions talk in class or whatever and then you'll find out what else you need to take notes on or what else you're missing that you don't know and so that's how I take notes for that all right let's go on to the handwritten stuff now in my backpack really useful for me is to have everything that I need wherever I go so I I like to try and minimize like the weight of everything that's why it's useful to take as many type notes as possible in my case if it's you know if it's appropriate but that way if I'm going to the library or if I'm walking around I have access to everything already so the way I organized this I as I said I'm taking to math classes and my notes for both of the classes are in this notebook and I'll show you how I do that by the way this is not real I just like drawing on myself and this – its ink box but especially when I've like come to a big realization which I did after like a really low couple of days I'm feeling really good now so this helped me out I'm totally off topic so I take all my notes in here for math and then these are my exercise books SOCOM 111 is for accounting I have all of my accounting practice questions which I'm very much on top of which I'm really proud of I can't really say the same for my other math my math class but you know you do what you what you can do and I'm like happy about this my sticky notes really helpful I put questions for things that I'm unsure of so that way when I'm going to office hours or I'm asking someone for help I can just flip really quickly to the parts that I know I had questions about and if they were answered I put the sticky note like in so that it doesn't pop out and again doing practice questions is so important for these kind of class then this is my math textbook math practice questions super messy literally like kind of scrap paper style and again I have green sticky notes further questions and this is my other math course then the classes themselves will go in the binder after so this is an example of my formula sheet this was for unit 1 2 3 tests which I actually did quite well on it was pretty like introductory information which I did in high school but a year ago since I didn't have math in grade 12 and I like having a formula sheet because that way before the class I can sort of like cram and memorize the formulas or at least you know know that I know everything or hope to know that I hope that I know everything and then here are my math so I'll go somewhere in the middle so it's not at the very beginning when I was just starting taking notes this is a good example okay as I said they're all in this notebook so the way I I know which one is which math course this is for my calculate for your calculus course and this is for my and the colors by the way and the dot kind of thing corresponds to the homework assignments in my bullet journal which will be a totally different video so yeah this is for my other math course my commerce one and this is for my art silence and essentially I use the Cornell system the same way that I do in my typed notes this is useful because if I'm looking through my notes say I'm doing a question and I don't remember how to do a particular thing I look through this and I find it really quickly rather than looking through the bulk of the information and also if I'm just studying or reading my notes I can test myself on this first and that way I don't again read through the bulk of the information for math courses this is one reason why it's useful to take notes by hand first of all and also to take slightly more detailed notes because in class or from the lectures that I'm watching online it's not quite as easy to just go back and look at the information so even if I I mean obviously for stuff that I clearly know I don't write it down but if he's proving something like proving a formula or doing a practice question also write it down and so my system for that is the same as in my other video which I'll have a link to down below I have I essentially use three colors I use black pink and blue so blue is either for key discuss and get discussion questions or for math practice questions that we do in class so I'll put the number one in blue here I'll write the question and then either in pencil if we're supposed to try it on our own first or in pen if we're actually doing it in class I'll do the answer here and this is not the best example if it's not exactly this was a recent note but so I haven't like gone through and updated like reviewed it and fixed my system but this is good then so I do the question in blue put a question one and then for the answer that I have I'll put it in black so the blue one corresponds to the black one and I'll draw a line to show where the area is that I've answered that particular question and for math again as I said this is useful because I might want to go over how I've done a question so I like to put that in here if it's something like a lot of practice questions we're doing in class for some reason I'll do that in my work – math notebook so black is just for regular notes and in class I usually don't fill in this quite yet but I do this information first and then I go in and do this for my business management course that I showed you on my computer I do the headings for this information first and since it's on the computer I can go in and fill in the information at any time so it makes sense that way and I fill this in afterwards I like using this part as a review so once I've taken all of this note these notes and when I'm reviewing my notes I fill this information in just to kind of check that I've organized it in a good way in my mind and then pink is for extra key additions or details so for example if I'm doing a formula which I highlight in orange because that's a color coding system but the green is for headings so this is kind of like a subheading this is the main heading this is the class code this is the date although I forgot to do that usually and blue is for definition so yeah I for example in this case I've used pink pen to identify what each of the variables are representing so that's I think that's pretty much it and again I use sticky notes for my questions and also for just added information that I want to pop out pretty straightforward honestly like I just kind of do what I think works I make the decision you know while I'm at it and those are my math notes for accounting and this is a relatively new thing these are this is an assignment we had for accounting as well this is a relatively new thing in terms of how I'm taking my notes for accounting but I think it's been working really well for me is yes so this was actually from today's class this morning and I did all of this during class so no extra extra time spent on this outside of class although my plan is to spend time before class doing in this top part and then in class do this so the principle the premise with this is kind of the same as with my other classes except it's slightly changed so again the most important thing is to skim the textbook to organize the information so when I'm skimming the textbook which I I messed up with the chapters I did a different one for today's class I did chapter 10 so I skimmed the textbook and I took basically like point form of all of the key topics that were covered in that chapter so classifying current long-term liabilities sales tax accounting property tax accounting short-term notes payable and the reason this is really helpful for a course like accounting is because some of these things are self explanatory or I know already so there's no point whatsoever in taking notes in what the journal entry would look like or you know how I'm supposed to deal with this information so instead I do this at the beginning so that way when I'm studying for an exam I can check myself I can like go through this and say okay I know how to do that I know how to do that okay I'm good with chapter 10 moving on and it also helps me when I'm in class to know you know what we've covered and what I'm missing that I should kind of look over on my own because there's a lot of self-study involved that I've noticed in university so far so I take the notes here but I I focus on like it's more focused on this section I guess the notes are directly corresponding to this section so there's not so many titles in my accounting notes because they're just again a index in a way with a few detailed pieces of information that are relevant of information I don't really know that I need to focus more on so that's pretty much it I've gone through three of my types of courses content heavy where I do the reading kind of skim it and since it's typed and I would recommend this for your type courses rather than do it do this part just take the heading notes and then go back in and fill it in later for my math heavy courses I just in class since it's all in class and like there's not really time to go through it twice I take the normal notes here and then I go back in and I do this part and that's what I do for my content heavy except as I said it just the headings first fill in that stuff and then go over this as a way of reviewing and like reorganizing the information and then for my accounting class and this depends on your comfort level with the class you make this distinction which method you want to use I take the I make like a bit of an index before the chapter and then this section is just my added information and again I go and I fill this in to correspond to whatever I've written about on here all right so that's it for this video thank you so much for watching and I know it got a bit long but I hope the information was relevant to you and I hope to see you as soon as possible but thanks for sticking with me and let me know what you thought in the comments below if you have any tips as well and yeah all the best I've got to catch dinner now there's only half an hour left at the CAF so hopefully I can be there by then see you later bye mistral spirit

In this video I talk about how to pass, get a 4, or get a 5 on the AP World History exam. All of the resources I mention are linked below.
I hope you find my advice and tips on AP World History helpful! 🙂 Also sorry I sound a little weird, I had just recovered from a cold when I filmed this.
And yes, I know my calligraphy on the schedule is far from perfect xD
AP World History Resources:

Hey you. Yes, YOU! Thanks so much for watching this video, and I just wanted to say, I’m so so sooooooo grateful for you and your support 🙂 you’re awesome!

hello everybody it's me Accela and I'm back with another AP exam video for you guys this has probably been my most requested AP exam video probably ever and it's how to pass Guetta for I get a 5 on the AP World History exam I took the AP World History exam last year in May of 2017 so I just took it this past school year so I'm going to be passing my knowledge down and give you guys tips on how to do well on the AP World History exam so hopefully this advice will be helpful for you guys and you'll be able to use it or pass it over to your friends and by the way all of the resources I mentioned in this video are gonna be linked in the description below so if you want to use one of them or download them they'll be in the description box so yeah so I hope you guys find this video helpful and if you do please leave a big thumbs up so that I know and yeah so the first thing I'm going to be talking about is AP prep books for the AP World History exam I personally used the prints interview I actually had both the Barron's and the prints interview and I found the Princeton Review to be better than the Barron's because the Princeton Review was updated for the new exam so this is the prep book that I used it's quite a thick book as you can see because this is the premium edition it has five full-length practice tests which is really awesome and yeah I definitely recommend just getting the Princeton Review prep book to review if you can buy a prep book to study for the AP exam or can borrow one so now let's talk a little bit about the format of the AP exam so last year was the first time that the College Board administered the new version of the AP World History exam you guys can read more in detail about the changes that College Board made online so the baron's AP prep book hadn't updated as of last year if they have updated then you guys might be able to use it this year so definitely take into account those changes if you're using any old AP World History exam resources as you're studying hey guys so I really quickly just wanted to show you the 2016-2017 AP world's history of revisions that they made to the AP exam you can find these on AP central on College Board and the link will be in the description below but pretty much the College Board just changed the format of the exam both the essays and the multiple-choice so for instance the multiple-choice now has stimulus based questions where they have either a quote or a picture all right so here's just a little overview of the format of the exam if you guys don't know yet in Section one Part A you have the multiple-choice section where there's 55 questions in 55 minutes and it's 40% of the exam score in Section 1 Part B you have short answer questions so there's three short answer questions that you answer in 40 minutes and that's 20% of the exam score in section two part a there's a document based question that you can answer in 60 minutes and it's 25% of the exam score and then in Section two Part B you have the long essay which is 40 minutes long and you have and it's 15% of the exam score apart from AP prep books there are a lot of other really useful AP World History exam resources that you can find on the internet that I will link in the description and talk about right now but yeah so there are definitely plenty of other free resources that you can use for the AP World History exam so the first free resource that I wanted to show you guys is called the histo map and it's pretty much just a giant map showing you the time pretty much all of the periods of time covered by the AP World History exam and it's just a useful visual if you're a visual learner to kind of review the different time periods and the different cultures or societies that came about the next source I wanted to show you is actually on tumblr and it's called AP World History study resources I thought it was a really useful compilation of a lot of different resources so as you guys can see the website has some videos linked into it it also has the different in units of AP World History sorted out with outlines key terms sample essay questions and then cram packets also underneath each individual section which I thought was really useful the next website I recommend is called Freeman PDF and I believe it was created by a teacher so you just need to go over to the AP world history section at the top and you can find a ton of different AP World History resources by period and overall the website is organized very nicely so it's also a good resource to use if you want something for free if you're a Quizlet lover then I also definitely recommend the ultimate AP World History set on Quizlet and I thought it was very useful so if you really like using Quizlet pass pictures it has lots of key terms that are on the AP exam so I definitely recommend reviewing that if you're a lover of cram packets like me mrs. Osborne's AP World History cram packet is probably one of the best ones I've come across it pretty much covers everything that you would possibly need to know for the AP exam and it's organized very nicely and it's also linked in the description so I definitely recommend it and I also like the fact that it compares a lot of the different societies and that just gives you a nice visual when you're preparing for the AP exam the AP World History Review packet is also another good cram packet you can use either this one or mrs. Osborne's or another one that you can find on one of the websites that I previously mentioned but it's also just a really nice cram packet and some of it overlaps as well so yeah but it also is pretty big but I definitely recommend using it if you want to cranberry and this is the final website I recommend it has a lot of different practice multiple choice questions and essay questions as well so if you need extra practice apart from the five AP exams found in the Princeton Review and I definitely recommend this website it also has some power points and overall just a very useful website with lots of resources and last but not least if you need extra practice prep scholar has an article called every AP World History practice test available and you can also use those links to find practice tests so now I'll talk a little bit about some AP World History related YouTube channels or videos that I think you guys might find helpful um while preparing for the AP exam there are three useful channels slash videos that I recommend for AP World History the first one is crash courses world's history series that they have if you like to watch youtube videos and are more of a visual audio learner I definitely recommend this series I also recommend Stephanie gorgeous or georgous I don't know how to pronounce your last name her period reviews if you also want a concise review on each of the periods and she covers all of them I definitely also recommend that if you want to watch videos instead of reading and the last review I recommend is the global history and AP worlds review in 16 minutes by mr. Clapp I also recommend that just it's a really short video but it might remind you of some areas that you forgot to review now that I've talked about all of these different resources that you guys can use to prepare for the AP World History exam I'll talk a little bit about how you can structure your AP exam prep and pretty much just an example of a schedule of kind of how I study for the AP exam so the first thing I recommend to do when preparing for the AP World History exam is to take a diagnostic test on the Princeton Review once you've done the entire diagnostic test under testing conditions then go over your mistakes and figure out what your weakest areas are next review those weakest areas in the Princeton Review and just skim through the sections and make sure you take some notes on them and are familiar with those sections after that I recommend just going through the entire Princeton review and this time taking more detailed notes both on the sections that you hadn't previously skimmed over and on the sections that you already have skimmed over and once you've done that I like to make a cram page where I just kind of write out one page of all of the things that I thought were most important just to review on on the morning of or the night before the AP exam once you've done that I recommend doing two to three practice tests one of which should be the College Board practices that they have available and then one or two of the prints and review ones and then just go over them again and I definitely emphasize doing the practice tests because one of the short essays that I had done on the the first Prince interview practice test on the AP exam they have the exact same short essay question and I'm pretty sure I aced it because I remembered what the rubric had said on the practice Princeton Review one so I definitely recommend doing as many practice tests as you can and you should be good good to go at that point however if you feel like you need more review that's when I would recommend starting to go for the cram packets because the Princeton Review does not review everything that you might need to know and the cram packets can give you more information that you can use in the essays so yeah and once you've done all that you should be good good to go and I definitely think you would be able to at least pass if not get a four or five overall the APA rules history exam while it is daunting it is easily overcome evil and you can get a three four or five if you study enough and just really know the format of the exam plea this video was helpful for you guys and I wish you all the best of luck on the AP World History exam I know that you can do it and don't stress out too much because that definitely can take away from your performance on the day of the exam but I really do wish you guys the best of luck and yeah I hope you guys enjoy this video and I will see you guys next time bye guys

➫ Bohkeh | Hey Everyone:

hey everyone welcome back to another week of Lissa study guides it's Monday after school which means that I've got new English advice for you before I go into that I just wanted to say a massive thank you to everyone who came to that workshops over the temporary holidays it was so lovely meeting all of you and if you wanted to check out a little crumpled compilation compilation I do speak English if you want to check out a compilation of what actually happened during those workshops then check out my second channel where I've uploaded some behind the scenes and also some of the activities that we did during the day because the workshops was such a success and because a lot of you are asking whether or not I'm holding any more workshops later on the year the answer is no I'm not holding any more workshops but as a result I've decided to host a Q&A session that will be running on the 16th of October in Melbourne CBD because there is limited seating available it will be an intimate group session where you're more than welcome to bring any questions you have regarding basic English or anything they see related particularly if you're in year 11 and year 12 so definitely go ahead and check that out and I'm also doing a furnace main and great afterwards but we can go out to a cafe have a bit of food and some coffee for all of these students who weren't able to make any of the workshops all who can't attend the Q&A session we've got a flash sale happening for all of our study guys without all only $20 each at the moment this out ends in exactly one day so don't miss out alright so a lot of you loved the video that I created for reading comparing or compare and contrast essays so now I'm actually going to go into talking about any structures which a lot of you requested for in comparing is also known as compare and contrast so if I interchange between the two then please don't worry so we are covering essay structures as you know and if you like this light board style thank you for the thumbs up so generally there are three main types of essay structures in regards to compare and contrast essays what exactly are they let's find out now I'm going to be using the books Great Gatsby and Macbeth as comparison if you're not studying these books that's completely okay you should still be able to understand exactly the procedures I'm going to outlay ahead so essay structure one let's do this this structure is quite popular and you may know it and it is known as a block structure so what exactly is a block structure so the reason why this is called a block structure is because it's literally placing your text and discussing them in blocks so I'm just going to write down paragraph one two three four five and six on the left-hand side so that it's clear for you how this would look like in an essay so if our first text was to be on the Great Gatsby then we've spent majority of the first half speaking about Gatsby and the second half talking about Macbeth pretty straightforward huh what type of things would you talk about well in terms of compare and contrast essays you're looking at similarities and differences between the two texts so you may touch base on how both of them owe tragic heroes in their own way and that could be paragraph two and paragraph four talking about their similarities then with paragraph three and five what you could do is point out some differences gatsby ultimately undergoes our downfall because of his naivety and I know I've written paranoid there I'm so sorry I got confused between the two texts so try not to do what I did where you accidentally switch up the true paranoia should be under Macbeth and naivety is under Gatsby so this is what a block structure would look like now let's have a look at our second essay structure which will be an alternating essay structure I have less introduction in conclusion behind because they still exist in all of the three different types of essay structures however what we're doing now is we're alternating between the texts rather than placing them in chunks or blocks so paragraph two is text one paragraph three text to paragraph four text one paragraph five texts to now text one is Great Gatsby and texture is Macbeth so what you'll do is instead of spending the first half of your essay on one text and the second part of your essay on another text you'll be spending the first part of your essay looking at similarities and the second part looking at differences so when you look at similarities you can point out how they're both tragic heroes but with their differences you can talk about how their downfalls were attributed to different reasons and this my friends is an alternating structure by the way if you like what I'm doing here with this whiteboard and having this voice over then please give me a thumbs up so that I know I should be doing more videos like this let's move into essay structure number three the last and final one and integrative structure or you can know it as a side by side analysis so as usual I've left introduction in conclusion that because that's still relatively the same but four paragraphs through three and four what you'll find is that you'll be writing about both text 1 and text true at the same time so you can see here how it starts to get a little bit more advanced because you have to deal with both text at the same time so like before how I mentioned that you would focus your first part of the essay on a block serve either a certain text or alternating so on a similarity or a difference now what we're doing is because we're talking about them but at the same time we can base these paragraphs on certain themes that overlap and then point out the similarities and differences between the themes that we are analyzing so J stands for Great Gatsby and for Macbeth s for similarity and day for differences as you can see it is definitely a more complex way of going about things however this essay structure often offers a lot more in-depth analysis of the two techs so that is an introduction to different types of essay structures would you like me to explain more in detail if you do then comment below let me know what you're concerned about and what you're unsure of and I will try to answer that in my next video also don't forget the flash style that I'm doing for lvc study guides booklets they're only lasting one day so get on to it next I hope you guys enjoyed that video because it was a little bit different it was a lot more of me drawing but you guys then please give this video a thumbs up if you guys want to see more reading and comparing or compare and contrast essay based videos then let me know subscribe if you haven't already because we've just hit 7k subscribers and I would absolutely love to have you join our family here on Lisa study guys so that I can help you on your journey to achieving whatever your English goals are until next week guys see you then bye hey guys it's the end of the day and you can see and boy empty them behind me

إذا طلبت منك أن تفكر في شيء صعب ما هو أول شيء يتبادر إلى ذهنك؟ حسناً، إذا كنت مثلي ربما فكرت في بعض معادلات الرياضيات الطويلة و المعقدة، أليس كذلك؟ بالنسبة لمعظم الناس، تعتبر الرياضيات واحدة من أكثر المواد الصعبة. فهي عويصة ومعقدة، ولسوء الحظ لهذه الأسباب، اعتقد الكثير من الناس أنهم لن يحبوا الرياضيات أبداً. وهذا غير صحيح لأن الرياضيات مهارة يمكن تعلمها تماماً مثل أي مهارة أخرى. ولأنك تشاهد هذا الفيديو نأمل أنك لست من هؤلاء الأشخاص. وآمل أنك تؤمن حتى ولو لدرجة بسيطة بأنك ستصبح أفضل في الرياضيات و لديك الدافع للقيام بذلك. وإذا كنت كذلك، السؤال الذي يطرح نفسه هو كيف تصبح أفضل في الرياضيات؟ حسناً، لحسن الحظ، هذا واحد من الأسئلة التي إجابتها بسيطة. إذا كنت ترغب في أن تصبح أفضل في الرياضيات عليك القيام بحل الكثير والكثير من المسائل الرياضية. وكلما كانت أصعب كان ذلك أفضل. لأن المسائل الصعبة تزيد من فهمك وتقودك الى حلول جديدة. ولكن، في سياق دراسة الرياضيات والعمل من خلال هذه المسائل الصعبة ستصادف في نهاية المطاف مسائل محيرة، وستصبح عالقاً تماماً وعندما تصل إلى هذه النقطة، من المهم أن تعرف كيفية حل هذه المشاكل، لأن هذه المسائل ستزيد من مستوى فهمك وتبني مهاراتك. وهذا ما أريد التركيز عليه في هذا الفيديو. أريد أن أقدم لكم التقنيات العملية لحل هذه المسائل والتي تبدو للوهلة الأولى أنها لا يمكن لأحد أن يحلها في البداية، أود أن أركز على نصيحة ذكرها عالم الرياضيات الهنغاري (جورج بوليا) في كتابة "كيف تحلها" عام 1945. وهي كالتالي: " إذا لم تستطع حل مسألة ما، إذن فإن هناك مسألة أسهل يمكنك حلها، اعثر عليها." وهذا في رأي، أهم تقنية لفهمها وتطبيقها عملياً عند محاولة حل المسائل الرياضية الصعبة. لأن الرياضيات مبنية على رياضيات. بُنيت المفاهيم المعقدة من مفاهيم بسيطة وإذا لم يكن لديك فهم جيد للمبادئ الأساسية، إذن ستصبح المسائل المعقدة محيرة بالنسبة لك. إذن، إذا مررت بمسألة ما ولم تستطع حلها، أولاً، تعرف على مكوناتها أو العمليات التي يتُطلب القيام بها. غالباً، ستكون المسائل المعقدة ذات خطوات عديدة. الآن، ما يمكنك فعله في هذه الحالة هو تقسيم المسألة إلى مسائل متعددة وذلك من شأنه أن يعزل إما المكونات أو العمليات. أريد أن أبين ذلك عملياً لذلك دعونا نطبق ذلك من خلال مثال سريع الآن، لدي مسألة سهلة جداً لذلك دعونا نقوم بشىء أكثر تعقيداً قليلاً إذن، هذه مسألة جمع و تستخدم الرمز اليوناني، سيغما. وتعني أننا سنقوم بإضافة سلسلة من التعبيرات والتي تستخدم المتغير الذي يبدأ عند 1 وينتهي عند 4 ولكن، إذا لاحظت أن مسألة الجمع هذه بها (أس كسري) الآن، ربما البعض منكم أذكياء في الرياضيات ويمكنه حل مسائل كهذه بسهولة لكن، من الممكن أنك لا تملك فهم جيد لقواعد الجمع أو للأسس الكسرية. لذا، عند حلك لمسألة تحتوي على الأثنين معاً، فإنك تحتار إذن، على افتراض أن هذا ما يحدث، دعونا نقسم هذه المسألة إلى مسألتين أبسط كلاً منهما يركز على مفهوم واحد فقط من المفاهيم الأساسية. أولا، دعونا نصنع مسألة جمع أسهل والتي تتخلص من الأس الكسري تماماً الآن، كل ما عليك القيام به هو تكرار هذه الجملة أربع مرات ثم تضيف الإجابات والتي تعطينا الإجابة النهائية (66). والآن دعونا ننتقل إلى الأس الكسري. الآن، سأحله بطريقة سريعة جداً لأن هذا ليس درساً على الأسس الكسرية يمكنك إعادة كتابته كأربعة إلى قوى ثلاثة مضروبة في قوى النصف وبعد ذلك، يمكنك إعادة كتابة ذلك مرة أخرى مع الجذر التربيعي لأربعة مرفوعة إلى قوى الثلاثة. وبمجرد أن تفعل ذلك، تحصل على الجواب (8) الآن، الفكرة الأساسية من حل هذه المسائل البسيطة ذات المفهوم الواحد هو السيطرة على المفهوم الأساسي أو العملية التي تعمل عليها. لذا، إذا حللت بعض المسائل ولاتزال تشعر أنك غير واثق من استيعابك للمفهوم استمر في الحل حتى تصبح واثقاُ. تذكر، يعني الإتقان أنك لن تكون قادراً على ارتكاب الأخطاء ليس فقط الحصول على إجابة صحيحة مرة واحدة فقط على أي حال، بمجرد اتقانك للمكونات الأساسية عن طريقة العزل والتفكيك الآن يمكنك العودة للمسألة الأكثر تعقيداً التي تجمع المفاهيم كلها. في هذه المرحلة، يجب أن تكون قادرة على حل المفاهيم المفككة بسهولة وهو ما يعني أنه يمكنك من خلال كل قوتك العقلية حل مسائل جديدة ومبتكرة إذا تعلق الأمر بالترادف. الآن، هناك طريقة واحدة إضافية لتبسيط المسائل الصعبة التي أريد أن أتحدث عنها وقد تكون خمنتها مسبقاً إذا كنت قد أعرت انتباهاً للأمثلة. لم أستخدم أرقاماً معقدة جداً. لم أستخدم ارقاماً طويلة. لم أستخدم النقاط العشرية. لم أستخدم كسوراً كبيرة. والتزمت بالحد المنخفض من مسائل الجمع. يمكن للأرقام الكبيرة والمعقدة مع الكثير من النقاط العشرية أن تصرف انتباهك بعيداً عن المفاهيم والعمليات المفترض عليك القيام بها. لذا، إذا لم تستطع حل مسألة بها هذا النوع من الأرقام قم بحل مسألة مماثلة بأرقام صغيرة التي من السهل اضافتها وحسابها في رأسك، بهذه الطريقة من الممكن أن لا يكون لديك خبرة في المفاهيم . وبطبيعة الحال، أحياناً لديك فهم ضعيف للمفاهيم والعمليات نفسها لتتمكن من التعامل معها وحلها. وفي هذه الحالة، فقد حان الوقت للتعلم. انظر جيداً في كتابك، والق نظرة على ملاحظاتك. أو ابحث على أمثلة على الأنترنت والتي يمكنك اتباعها خطوة بخطوة ليمكنك أن ترى كيف وصل الناس إلى الحلول، وذلك باستخدام هذه المفاهيم. وإذا كنت بحاجة إلى ذلك، يمكنك الحصول على الحل خطوة بخطوة للمسألة التي تعمل عليها أيضاً. هناك العديد من الأدوات التي يمكنك استخدامها للقيام بذلك. وهناك أداتين أود التركيز عليهما في هذا الفيديو و التي هي أفضل الأدوات التي عثرت عليها هما (WolframAlpha) و (Symbolab) كل من هذه المواقع تسمح لك بكتابة معادلة والحصول على حلها وأيضاً ( gypha) و (Symbolabs) والتي تمكنك من متابعة الحلول. الفرق بين الاثنين: أن (WolframAlpha) أكثر قوة وقدرة، ولكنه يتطلب منك أن تدفع جزء مقدماً إذا كنت تريد للحصول على تلك الحلول خطوة بخطوة. على النقيض من ذلك، في حين أن كتابة المعادلات في (Symbolab) أبطأ قليلاً وأقل سهولة من (WolframAlpha) فإن حلول المسائل مجانية. بغض النظر عن الأداة التي اخترتها النقطة الأساسية هي أنه في بعض الأحيان قد يكون من المفيد أن نرى الحل خطوة بخطوة لمسألة لم تستطع حلها. ولكن، هناك تنبيهان مهمان جداً اولاً في المقام الاول وقبل كل شي، قبل أن تنطلق سريعاً إلى تلك المواقع لإيجاد الحل، اسأل نفسك "بصراحة، هل استخدمت ذهني لحل هذه المسألة أولاً ؟ " أن تجهد نفسك ذهنياً لحل المسألة بنفسك أمر مطلوب حيث أنه يزيد من قدراتك. و سوف يجعلك أفضل في الرياضيات أما مجرد معرفة الحلول لن يفيدك الآن، إذا كنت بحاجة إلى حل، فلا بأس. ابحث عنه، اتبع الخطوات وتأكد من أن تفهم كيف صار هذا الجواب ولكن، بمجرد فعل ذلك، تحدى نفسك للعودة وإعادة صياغة المسألة دون النظر إلى المرجع. من المهم أن تنتبه لهذا الأمر لأنه إذا كنت تود أن يتحسن مستواك في الرياضيات فإن الفكرة الأساسية هي إتقان المفاهيم التي تتعامل معها. الخطرالذي يكمن في النظر إلى الحلول هو أنه في مجال الرياضيات فإنه من السهل متابعة الحل خطوة بخطوة وفهم ما يجري. ولكن هذا يختلف تماماً عن أن تكون قادراً على القيام بذلك بنفسك. وهذا يقودني إلى نصيحتي النهائية لك. و هذا مهم بشكل خاص لمن يدرسون الرياضيات ومكلفين بحل الواجبات المنزلية. لا تتعجل في حل مسائل الرياضيات. وأعلم أنه من المغري محاولة حل الواجبات المنزلية بأسرع ما يمكن وقد قدمت فيديو يتكلم عن ذلك ولكن، مع الرياضيات والعلوم أو أي نوع من المواضيع المعقدة التسرع سيسبب مشكلة لك. لأنه مع العجلة، لن تتمكن من إتقان المفاهيم. فأنت وجهت قدراتك إلى الحل فقط وكان جل همك هو أن تنتهي من حل الواجب وفي وقت لاحق، عندما ستجلس في غرفة الاختبار، أو سيتوجب عليك تطبيق ما تعلمته في العالم الحقيقي ستحصل حينها على درس قاسي حول الاشياء التي تجهلها لذا، دعونا نلخص ما تعلمناه إذا كنت ترغب في التحسن في الرياضيات وترغب في تحسين قدراتك في حل هذه المسائل الصعبة أولاً، حدد المفاهيم أو العمليات المستخدمة في المسألة ومن ثم قم بعزلها. قم بحل المسائل التي تتضمن مفهموم واحد ومن ثم أتقن كل مهارة على حدة يمكنك أيضاً تبسيط المسألة من خلال ترك جميع المفاهيم كما هي لكن بتبديلها بأرقام سهلة التعامل. إذا كنت بحاجة إلى مساعدة في فهم المفاهيم تصفح كتابك أو ابحث في الأنترنت ابحث عن مسائل مشابهة، أو استخدام أداة مثل ( WolframAlpha) أو (Symbolab)
للحصول على الحلول خطوة بخطوة للمسألة التي تعمل عليها وأخيراً، لا تتعجل في حل الواجبات المنزلية. تأكد من أنك تركز باهتمام على اتقان المفاهيم، ليس فقط أن تنتهي نأمل أن هذه النصائح أعطتك الثقة للتعامل مع بعض مسائل الرياضيات الصعبة وتطوير مهاراتك الحسابية. وعلى تلك المذكرة، أريد أن أذكر لكم أحد اقتباسات الفيزيائي العظيم، ريتشارد فاينمان، الذي قال: " لا أؤمن بفكرة أن هناك عدد قليل من الأشخاص المميزين قادرين على فهم الرياضيات بينما يعتبر البقية أشخاصاً عاديين" ، الرياضيات هي من اختراع البشر وليست خارج حدود فهم البشر" في نهاية المطاف، مستواك في الرياضيات وأي شىء يتعلق بهذا الموضوع يبدأ في التحسن مع وجود الثقة وأثناء حلك للمسائل و تشغيل دماغك سوف تزيد ثقتك بطبيعة الحال وتصبح شيئاً لازماً فيك إذا كنت مهتماً بأن تبدأ التعلم الآن، المكان المثالي لكي تبدأ رحلتك من خلاله هو (Brilliant). منصة تعليم تستخدم التدريب العملي على حل المسائل كأساسيات لمساعدتك على تعلم الرياضيات والعلوم وعلم الحاسوب، وبفعالية كبيرة. أنا أدرس دورة في أساسيات علم الحاسوب في الموقع وبينما كنت في المرحلة الأول في الخوارزميات خضت اختبار قصير أجبرني على أن أتعلم مهارة جديدة في الرياضيات لم أتعلمها قبل فاضطررت الى البحث في موقع الويكي وفي بعض المسائل المشابهة وفي النهاية اضطررت لأن أخرج ورقة من دفتر الملاحظات ورسمت الخوارزميات خطوة بخطوة حتى أتمكن من فهم ما يجري. هذه الطريقة منحتني تجربة مميزة وفعالة في التعلم لم أتعلمها في محاضراتي الجامعية. وهذه الأنواع من التحديات هي التي تجبرك على البحث تعتبر أساساً في جميع دوراتهم. وتشمل الاحتمالات والمنطق وحساب التفاضل والتكامل علم الفلك، ذاكرة الكمبيوتر وأكثر من ذلك. بالإضافة إلى الدورات المنظمة لدى Brilliant أيضاً تحديات أسبوعية والتي يمكن أن تستفيد منها في تحسين مهاراتك ويمكنك في الموقع أن تتحدث مع زملائك الطلاب ولديهم موقع ويكي مفصل ومفيد مع الكثير من التفسيرات والأمثلة. لذا، إذا كنت تريد تجربة Brilliant اضغط على الرابط في صندوق الوصف واشترك مجاناً لتبدأ التعلم. وكمكافأة، إذا كنت من بين أول 200 مشترك، ستحصل أيضاً على تخفيض 20٪ من اشتراكك السنوي. أريد أن أتقدم بالشكر الجزيل لـ Brilliant لرعايتها هذا الفيديو ومساعدتها في دعم هذه القناة وكما هو الحال دائماً، شكراً جزيلاً للمشاهدة. إذا وجدت هذا الفيديو مفيداً قم بضغط زر الإعجاب لدعم هذه القناة وربما يمكنك أن تشاركه مع صديق يمكن أن يستفيد منه أيضاً يمكنك الاشتراك هناك وقم بضغط زر الجرس لتكون أول من يعرف عند نزول فيديو جديد أو انقر هنا للحصول على نسخة مجانية من كتابي حول كيفية الحصول على أفضل الدرجات. يمكنك أيضاً النقر هنا للاستماع لأحدث حلقة بودكاست عن كيف تسحق مقابلات العمل ويمكن النقر هنا لمشاهدة فيديو آخر تابع لهذه القناة شكراً لمشاهدة وأراكم في الفيديو القادم
