Most people know that they can use bullet journaling to he;p them be more organized in their personal and private lives, but what a lot of people do not realize is that you can also use your bullet journal to help you study more effectively.
Whether you’re looking to study for your cycling certification or your master’s degree in business, you can use your bullet journals to ensure that your efforts are more fruitful and that you are able to study in a more effective and efficient way, which means you are far more likely to pass your exams with flying colors.
If that sounds good to you, below are some of the best ways to use your bullet journal as an aid to studying:
Create a semester overview
Start by creating a semester overview calendar which includes details of all of your assignment due dates, the dates of your tests and quizzes, and any important lectures and events you need to attend. That way, you can always see, at a glance, what you are working towards, which will undoubtedly help to keep you on track.
Create a weekly overview
Once you have created a semester overview, it would also be a good idea to create a weekly overview in the form of a calendar. You can mark off study dates, deadlines, and of course, mark each of your classes throughout the day so you always know where you need to be and when because, there’s nothing worse than missing an important class or online lecture simply because it has slipped your mind.
Create a syllabus
Creating a master syllabus is also really important. A master syllabus will look like a rundown of every individual topic you will need to cover under the heading of your main subject. You can lay it out in bullet form in order of importance for your course, and tick off each subject as you learn as much as you need to about it, and you can refer back to it when you are revising before your big exams, and it will be a huge help.
Create a homework record
Creating a grid with all of your homework assignments for each semester is a really good way of ensuring you keep track of all of those homework tasks that you need to hand in if you want to progress through your course and get good grades. You can make a similar tracker for your attendance if you are doing a course where a minimum level of attendance is required too.
Create a project planner
A project planner which breaks each project you need to work on down into daily or weekly chunks will help you to avoid procrastination and ensure that you make continuous progress each day so that you meet those all-important deadlines in the most efficient way possible, and they are so easy to organize that there is no excuse not to.
Your bullet journal is one of the best tools you have, so use it wisely.
