How To Study and Revise

How To Study and Revise for your Anatomy and Physiology Course Part 1

We use a technique in our anatomy and physiology courses called “Accelerated Learning”. It is the combining of all learning techniques, which include:

Visual (spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.

Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.

Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.

Physical (kinesthetic): You prefer using your body, hands and sense of touch.

Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.

Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.

Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.

This allows everyone who takes the anatomy and physiology course, no matter what their learning style; to learn in a way that suits them best.

Facts about Revision and Review

The best times to revisit new information for maximum recall are

• at the end of the session

• after one day

• after one week

• after one month

Suggestions for ways of revisiting information at the end of a session:

• Visualisation

Put on some gentle music and  relax. Give a five-minute recap of all the activities you did during the session and say what the main point was of doing each.

If you have visuals, on the flip chart or powerpoint or on the wall, then look at them

relook at the videos, by simply sitting back and relaingx. 

• Making a note to yourself

Write down 3/5/8 (however many makes sense) key learning points from the session. Take at least ten minutes to do this. Coloured paper with stars or clouds printed on can make this seem more important than simply scribbling something down.

• Write a letter to yourself

Write down the things you have decided to focus on in the form of a letter to yourself. You post it to yourself two weeks later.

Teach it to yourself

Stand up, have large pieces of paper and speaking out loud teach teach the subject to you and an imaginary class

Good luck with studying your anatomy and physiology course. Next week part 2 will cover how to stay focused and improve concentration.
