Biggest revision mistakes – Marathons 

By  Lysette Offley

Biggest revision mistakes – Marathons Photo of tired studentEver found yourself falling asleep during long study sessions?

Human beings have evolved with short attention spans! That won’t come as a great surprise to many people! But I wonder how many people allow for this when revising?

It’s very unlikely that you can maximise your efficiency when studying for long periods of time. It’s perfectly natural for your mind to wander off and for you to find that much of your revision time has been wasted.

Many people, in an attempt to take their revision for CISCO Accreditation exams seriously, make the mistake of taking a few days off work, or setting aside a whole weekend, turning down invitations in the name of doing the right thing.

But that’s not the way your brain works best.

Far better to schedule in short bursts of time throughout the week and weekend. If you do want to spend most of the weekend revising, then you absolutely must give yourself regular breaks, or you’ll be simply wasting your time.

If you want to find out more about how you can cut hours off your CISCO Accreditation revision and pass your exams easily, take a look at Genius Material, the complete revision system for exam success.
