Meet Allie! She is studying Medical Assisting at Brigham Young University – Idaho. Allie’s best advice is to study every day so that you remember everything in the long run. Read more to find out why Allie loves StudyBlue!
What is your favorite feature on StudyBlue & why do you love it?
I love the quizzes. You can create quizzes using words from your flashcards – it helps me so much! You can also customize the quizzes if you want them all to be fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, etc. It is the perfect study tool for me.
How do you incorporate StudyBlue into your daily/weekly routine?
For my major, we have to memorize a TON of abbreviations, and the flashcards and quizzes are what I use the most each week to prepare for weekly tests and quizzes. I use my iPod a lot to use StudyBlue.
Do you have any advice or tips for students on how to use StudyBlue? Specifically for your major?
Consistency is the key! Don’t study for one week and then never study that material again. For Medical Assistants, material builds on itself and you can’t forget what you learned before. Make a study schedule and stick with it.
Do you have any advice for students on how to prepare for exams?
Study every day after class. The learning curve shows that when you study immediately after class, you have a much higher potential for remembering the things you learned. Don’t cram for tests! You might memorize it temporarily, but it doesn’t help you in the long run.
What is your favorite website or blog to visit during a study break?
I love to visit Pinterest while I’m taking a break.
Why do you study? What drives or motivates you to study?
I study for the grades, but also because this is what my career is going to be. My mom always said that if you’re going to take the time to do something, you might as well do it right the first time!
