Reprise: How to memorize information for the bar exam

Working out is good for our bodies, but our brain reaps many benefits as well. Exercise can improve learning and memory, so if you’re having writer’s block or just can’t seem to get through that tough math problem, try walking it off or squeezing in a quick gym session.

A 2013 study found that exercise has immediate benefits on cognition in both younger and older adults — after a simple 15-minute exercise session, study participants showed an improvement in memory and cognitive processing.

2. Write down what needs to be memorized over and over
It can seem like a lot more work to continuously jot down the same thing over and over, but this simple activity can work wonders for your memory recall. Research has shown that listing out facts or problems improves the ability to memorize them instead of trying to passively learn them by re-reading, for doing a test or any other subject is necessary to have a mentality for success, that’s why learning mind techniques as on how to get rid of negative thoughts is so important to prepare for yourself in any test and life.

Further, another study found that taking lecture notes by hand instead of typing them out on a computer helped students better recall the lesson content.
