Virginia Tech University has an excellent site that offers some study tips, and although it is a university site the information contained can certainly be applied to high school studies. Tips and skills offered include how to read a difficult book, the use of acronyms, and how to make notes.I will certainly be using these websites in future. Let me know what you think, or if you have other study tips or resources that should be listed here.Don't forget - if you're taking NCEA to check out studyit.org.nz for some excellent help on maths and science.
It sucks, but it must be done if you wish to acheive well in your exams. I recently stumbled over a Barnes & Noble service called SparkNotes which offers study guides and notes for various topics; English, History, Maths, Science, and a host of other subjects. The best part is that you can view these online for free, or you can pay a small fee and download them to keep. I have had a quick look over some of these notes and they seem quite good. For example I am studying Othello in English this year and found that SparkNote have a character overview, a plot summary, and all the actual play itself. Maybe Shakespeare isn't your thing, the history notes are quite good too. You can find topic overviews, study questions, and tests on a variety of history and other subjects. Also, you must visit the SparkNote community, and if you take media studies or study films in English you can find notes of films aswell.
