Study Tips and Techniques

In this post, I’ll share how I usually study. This will be updated from time-to-time, so please check back regularly. In no particular order except for the very first entry which I personally think is the most important factor, here are some of my tips for you.

#1 FAITH. TRUST. HOPE. in GOD.

Whether you are a first-timer, or a re-taker, it is essential that you develop a very strong faith in our Lord God… that He will not bring you here if He will not be with you all the way. He did not say it will be easy, but it is going to be worth it. So, whatever happened, happens and will happen, stay focused on your goal. Know and take confidence that God is in full control and do all you can to achieve your dreams.

#2 KNOW YOUR GOAL AND STAY POSITIVE.

Set your goals and everyday that you wake up, imagine yourself achieving them. That way, you’ll help yourself develop a positive attitude even in difficult times.

#3 Know the important dates and details of the exam

See this for the PRC Schedule of Licensure Exam for 2021.

#4 Prepare COMPLETELY

This is not only an academic battle, which means that if you graduated with honors, you’ll be 100% assured of victory, the same way that those who did not graduate with any award are assured of failure. Many other important factors play a role in this and they should be addressed accordingly. So, prepare yourself ACADEMICALLY, MENTALLY and SPIRITUALLY.

#5 Know your LEARNING STYLE

Each of us has a different learning style and you’ll really be more productive if you know and apply yours. If you do not have any idea how you learn more, take a test here: To know your learning style, you may take a test here.

#6 Know when YOUR BRAIN IS MOST ACTIVE

Is it in the morning? Evening? With music or silent environment?
For some students, a quiet environment is better for studying. For some, it easily invites boredom and makes them sleepy.

So, for those who want music to accompany their studying trip, here are some playlists from Spotify. Although, you can make your own playlist, if you like.

#7 Use REVIEW MATERIALS YOU REALLY UNDERSTAND

A lot of materials are out there in the market but not all may be helpful to you, so you have to find out which are really beneficial, especially if you’re on a tight budget. There are times that you want to have ALL that is available, which is okay if you really want to have them all, but there is a high chance that you’ll be overwhelmed one day and not know which to read/study.

#8 Make your OWN NOTES

If time permits and the exam dates are still away from today, please consider creating your own notes so it’ll be easier to master or memorize.

#9 Use a CHECKLIST

If you’re self-reviewing and do not know much about the frequently asked topics in the exam, it’s helpful to have a checklist so you’ll have a guide somehow. Click this (Local Board Exam Topic Checklist) to download the file I made for you and use it to help you track your progress. 

#10 Make and follow your schedule

I’ll upload a sample schedule I made for a friend, just so you’ll have an idea but you have to make your own schedule because you know YOU more than I do. 🙂

Use this planner if you want to. 🙂

#11 Use MNEMONICS

Check out this Facebook album of my #MgaWalangKwentangMnemonics and maybe you’ll find some of them useful.

#12 Others

[NEW] #13 Know the definition or etymology of the word

I, most of the time, do this to remember or understand better the topics I’m studying. 📔 I usually search for the meaning of the word/s or their etymology to understand them better. 🔎


For example, Luteinizing Hormone (LH), from Latin word ‘Luteum’ or ‘Luteus’ meaning yellow. So, it helps me to remember that one of the functions of this hormone is to stimulate development of the Corpus Luteum (yellow). 🍳


Whatever it is that helps you stay on track, do it. These tips may not be applicable to everyone but there’s no harm in trying them out and see if any of these will be helpful for you.

So, yeah, I wish you good luck and God bless! ❤

Happy aral!
