Study methods used in the Holiday Rep Diploma Course
Each module has an individual revision test attached to it. These tests are designed to help you to revise what you have just learn't and give you an idea of the final exam structure.
They help you to retain concepts that you've studied
Reading through the study modules is obviously important - it introduces you to new concepts, formulae and calculation methods from each module. But doing revision tests is what drives it fully home into your brain.
You can read all about riding a bicycle, or how to swim from textbooks all you want. But in the end, you need a certain amount of practice to get used to the feel of how the real thing is. The revision tests allow you to track your progress and highlight any modules that you may need to study again. Research shows that by simply completing revision tests it will massively improve your passing chances.
Keep track of which modules you have studied and how well you are doing for each.
Your progress report will show you the revision tests you have completed and the percentage mark you have gained for each. The revision tests are coloured coded showing you which ones you need a little more study time on.
Flash Cards using The Leitner System
The Leitner System is a popular method of studying with flashcards using spaced repetition.
How does it work?
The idea is that the easier it is to recall the material on a flashcard the less often that flashcard will be repeated in the future. The reverse follows. The harder it is to recall the material on a flashcard the more often it will be repeated. The repetition of each flashcard is scheduled, or spaced, in such a way that the learner spends most of their time studying material that is more challenging. Material that has been retained well is studied only occasionally to ensure it has not been forgotten.
Audiovisual material provides a rich medium for learning. Video can effectively communicate complex information to create a motivating, memorable and inclusive learning experience.
Each module within the Holiday Rep Diploma Course is illustrated with photos, diagrams and drawings to enrich your learning experience.
Why does using illustrations improve your learning experience?
The two sides of the brain have different attributes and respond to different stimuli. The left is analytical, verbal, sequential and linear; the right is visual, spatial and holistic. It follows that the left is more logical, responding better to textual material, whilst the right is more imaginative, responding to images. If the right side is not stimulated, it is harder for students to put ideas into context. Studies have shown that the use of relevant images can increase a student's recollection and comprehension of new material.
