include the following:
* Compiled manual
* Pretest with rationalization
* Assessment examination with rationalization
* Removal Examinations 1 and 2 with rationalization
* With over 5,000 questions given (each section and batch with
varying examination sets)

MEMORIZATION
Use memory effectively.

Try to think of strategies that would be useful to you. Each


depends on how comfortable you are with, or how useful they
are to your way of thinking.
1. Acronyms
An acronym is an invented combination of letters. Each letter is
a cue to, or suggests, an item you need to remember.
2. Keywords
This may prove very useful especially in wordy texts.
3. Chaining
Create a story where each word or idea you have to remember
cues the next idea you need to recall.

Focus on the task at hand and eliminate distraction.


However, there may be times when your mind wanders from
one thing to another, your worries distract you, outside
distractions take you away before you know it, and the material
may be boring and difficult.
How to achieve concentration:
1. Have your study place.
Get a dedicated space, chair, lighting, and environment.
2. Stick to a routine, efficient study schedule.
Accommodate your day/nighttime energy levels. Study your
most difficult courses at your high energy times.
3. Focus.
Before you begin studying, take a few minutes to summarize a
few objectives, gather what you will need, and think of a general
strategy of accomplishment.
How do you spend your typical 24-hour day?

away Strategies

Here are strategies how to develop your study time.


1. Develop and plan for blocks of study time in a typical
week.
Blocks are ideally around 50 minutes. Some difficult material
may require more frequent breaks. Shorten your study blocks if
necessary, but dont forget to return to the task at hand. Just
remember: place your blocks of time when you are most
productive. Are you a morning person or a night owl?
2. Determine your study space.
Where can you maximize your concentration and be free of
distractions? Have a back-up space that you can escape to, like
the library, departmental study center, or even a coffee shop
where you can be anonymous.
3. Review weekly your accomplishments.
Have you accomplished your goals? At the end of each week,
evaluate yourself.
Avoiding Procrastination
To remedy procrastination:
1. Know what you want to accomplish. What is the final
objective? The end result?
2. Remind yourself what you have done so far. The longest
journey begins with a first step.
3. List out what stands in your way. What is in your power to
change? What resources outside yourself do you need?
4. Remind yourself what will happen if you dont progress. It
wont hurt to scare yourself a little.
5. Focus on the immediate task and project, and build up from
there.
Developing self-discipline
3

When you dont have control over your own self, how can you
control time?
As you control tasks, you build self-discipline.
As you build self-discipline, you build time management.
As you build time management, you build self-confidence.
Schedule a task and hold to its time; avoid acting on
impulse.
Track your progress. At the end of the allotted time, keep a
record of accomplishment that builds over time.
Study Habits of Highly Effective Students

Take responsibility. In order to succeed, you need to make


decisions about your priorities, your time and your resources.
Prioritize. Put first things first. Dont let others distract you
from your goals. Arrange your schedule to eliminate distractions.
Know when you are most productive. Study at the times
when you think youre able to absorb ideas best. Morning,
afternoon, or evening?
Try not to overdo things. Select a reasonable chunk of
material to study. Do not do too much studying at a time. Doing
such will tire you and will decrease your effectivity. Space the
work you have to do over short periods of time. Taking short
breaks in between will restore your mental energy.
Investigate alternative sources of information you can
refer to (other textbooks, websites, etc.) Inquire from support
professionals for assistance.
At
the
end
of
each
study,
re-examine
and
evaluate. Examine your progress with tests and examinations.
Keep a positive attitude and aspire for better results.
Studying with Multiple Sources
Information can be delivered through a variety of formats.

Textbooks provide a foundation of facts and viewpoints. During


the review, we tend to absorb ideas better in information from
short, well-constructed texts. Read your text to provide the
factual framework from which to begin. However, reading the
whole textbook is time- consuming; instead, use it as an adjunct
to your review materials given to you. Use shorter, more focused
sources of information.
Additional readings and alternative sources of information can
assist you to create a richer understanding with additional
information and perspective. With these, you can practice and
familiarize with new concepts which may prove indispensible.
However, too much information can impede your learning.
During your review here at ACTS, you will be guided to which
study material to best equip you with just the necessary
information to pass the board examinations. Use in-class time
to test your understanding and ask questions.
Reading Effectively
Get a perspective, an overview of things.
Have a syllabus (or the matrix). Look through it and use it as a
guide.
After knowing the topics for review, survey the topics in your
reading materials for how the content is organized. This is not to
fully understand, rather develop preliminary associations of bits
of information that later will help you understand. Notice the
major concepts, headings, boldfaced material, and graphics.
First Reading
Its main purpose is to read and get a good idea of the material:
what you understand, and what you do not. Read sentences and
paragraphs and pause. Let your mind assemble the parts you
just read to give you the meaning of the whole unit. This will
only happen if you intentionally are paying attention to the
meanings. Look back and forth between words and related
graphics.
From time to time, ask yourself if you are on track to
understanding. Ask your academic advisor for help. If meanings
come very slowly, take a break. Do not overdo it.

Second reading
This is a review of the first reading. Return to what you do not
understand. This is a form of reinforcement. Mark or highlight
what you think is important. You can write beside your notes if
you want to. Write new vocabulary and concepts down along
with short meanings and cues. Read aloud if you must. Your
translation of printed texts into spoken words may activate
meanings.
Review and review
Repetition enhances your learning ability.
