The study techniques form a guided methodology for the way of studying, for the guidelines to follow on the process, for how to start a study session in the best possible way and the development of it by using concrete techniques: Reading, summarizing, creating a diagram.
The students should know all the available study methods and then, choose the one that fits them better. This way, we personalize the way of studying and adapt it better to the other habits and abilities. For example, if someone has the ability of synthesizing, the summary can be beneficial. When, in a different case, the person captures the graphic information, the best method could be the visual study.
