Why Studying The Day Before Is Bad…
We’ve all heard it being said over and over again. Studying the night before the exam is bad! Never ever do it! But have ever pondered why it’s so bad as it’s often said. Well, here today, I am going to show you the major reason for it’s suckiness (is that a word, eh who cares…)
There are number of different reasons why starting to study the night before the exam stinks, such as:
“You wont remember squat!”
I couldn’t have said it any more simpler. It doesn’t work, no matter how good you can absorb information, it simply doesn’t work! A recent study by Jeffrey Ellenbogen of Harvard Medical showed that students who were given rest the night before could recall 76 percent of the test material while those who had gone without shut-eye only remembered 32 percent.
Statistics are very powerful and convincing.
“Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of people know that.” H. J. Simpson
