Sometimes, when work or revision is stressful, we all wish we could perform tasks as well as computers can. But what can we learn from these devices and how can this help your CIMA revision? Read on to find out...
Computers have been programmed to complete tasks using the best and most efficient algorithms possible. If we want to achieve tasks with anywhere near the competency that computerized systems do, then we need to use and stick to our own algorithmic processes!
In my experience talking to students, when it comes to your CIMA revision, figuring out a repeatable routine that works for you is essential. Your own revision algorithm could be something as simple as using Astranti's printable study text like this:
- Read an area of the study text
- Convert the key points into your own words
- Test your knowledge on this area without looking at your notes
- Highlight any areas of the text which you need to learn more thoroughly
Here is another example of a useful algorithm, which involves a wider range of CIMA study materials, including Astranti's mocks and exam practice kits.
- Highlight key areas of the study text
- Test your knowledge on those areas using Astranti's exam practice kits
- Read back over the study text
- Test all of your knowledge using one of Astranti's mock exams
If you have any of your own revision algorithms to share, please get in touch - you can follow us on Twitter here or like us on Facebook. We look forward to hearing from you, until next time, happy studying!
