Study "Games"

Postby I.P. Daly » Wed Dec 14, 2011 1:11 pm

I attempted to turn my flash cards into a game of Jeopardy, but the idea failed. It failed miserably.
I definitely learn and memorize stuff more efficiently when I'm engaged in the material. Unfortunately, there are a limited number of funny and sexually explicit mnemonics that I can apply to the material.

Can anyone recommend "fun" ways to study?

I have a good game I play.
For every .1 which I increase my GPA, I get a few hundred thousand dollars in expected salary over the first several years of my career.

LOL. Extra points for being funny and credited at the same time.

i think it tops out at a certain number though (160 most places, maybe 250 at most if you go to wachtell or boies, so this doesn't really work.

Get old exams, E&E's or whatever source of hypo questions you can find. Then, get a cloth frisbee, camp out in a class room later at night with one or two others, and throw it to eachother as your "talking rock" like you're in kindergarten. Sounds dumb, but it can keep studying mildly entertaining. Answer a question, then toss it on for the next person to give their thoughts.
