Study Strategy: My favorite study strategy is cue cards. I make them myself then I go through them with anyone who will listen (even if its a cat). Saying something out loud can force you to think through and understand the content more then reading it will. My big tip for you is to remember to take breaks! Breaks are very important to healthy study strategy's.

The Pomodoro Technique is a renowned time management tool designed to strike a harmonious balance between work and breaks by employing consistent intervals. Originating in the 1980s, it was crafted by Francesco Cirillo to enhance productivity and focus. A benefit of using the Pomodoro technique is that you can adjust it to fit your needs. You can make the work periods shorter (like 15 minutes) or longer (like 45 minutes). Just remember, if you change the work time, change the break time too. A short break should be around 20% or less of the work time. For guidance on getting started, here are a few tips on how to use this technique while you study:
