Top Study Tip #3: Study in the Same Location

When we began researching this area we were not surprised to find out that people's memories are actually greatly affected by location.  

PEOPLE LEARN BETTER IN A ROUTINE LOCATION

You can actually remember better if you learn something in the same location.  Your environment plays a huge role in what you remember and how you remember. 

PEOPLE REMEMBER BETTER WHEN THE STUDY ENVIRONMENT IS SIMILAR TO TEST CONDITIONS

This tidbit was another fun fact.  We remember better if our study environment is similar to our testing environment.  So quiet places that are organized and appear much like a classroom are more likely to help us remember and perform better on a test.  That also means ditch the headphones and the music.  You won't be able to sit with head phones on the test.  Since, you remember things similarly to how you study, you need to approximate study conditions--that means quiet!
