In my general chemistry class, I'm not an excellent student. My performance goes up and down sometimes. After I think about it, I truly believe that this is because my way of studying is not efficient enough!!! When I do good on my test, I usually have reviewed for a longer time. In the unit "Acids and Bases", I did not get a score that I expected. After I got back the test, I thought about it. I went back to the packet and found my mistake. I realized that if I have spent more time reviewing, my score would have went up much higher. The majority of my mistakes are concepts; I didn't understand how titration work at all. I think the most effective way to study is to practice the test. You might ask, I don't know what's on the test, how can I practice? But the areas that are going to be tested are all given to the students. Do the sample questions, read through the packet, these are all counted as practice. Once you've practiced well, you'll finish the test quickly and have no difficulties during the test. On the next unit, I used this strategy and got a much higher score.
Thinking about our thinking is also a way of learning. Through this process, you see yourself more, you understand more, and you realize more in a different perspective.
