Study in Short, Frequent Sessions

It has been proven that short bursts of concentration repeated frequently are much more effective than one long session in AMIE studies. So, even if you only have 10 minutes, DO IT. Take a break. Then study another 10 minutes. This “distributed learning” approach is highly efficient because it honors the way the brain likes to work.

The brain needs recovery and recharging time for “protein synthesis.” The rest periods are when your brain assimilates your effort. They are a powerful tool which many teachers do not acknowledge. 

To sit and study for hours and hours is not only boring, it creates fatigue, stress, and distraction. You cannot learn if you are fatigued, stressed, and distracted!

So make studying for AMIE exams a fun by breaking it in short chunks of time. By doing so, you not only enjoy studying but at the same time learn the course very effectively.
