ISSA Sports Nutrition Study Tips

ISSA Practice tests

Most of my students come back to me complaining that they failed the exam. I usually ask them, well did you try taking a practice exam before taking the real thing? The answer is typically no, they did not.

Taking a practice exam is very helpful to letting you know whether or not you are ready for the real exam. Don’t take any chances, take a couple practice exams to make sure you have the knowledge to pass the real thing.

ISSA Study Mnemonics

One of the best ways to memorize harder-to-understand concepts and definitions is to use mnemonics. These will let you connect a crazy story that you create to what you are trying to memorize.

I suggest trying to make them as crazy as possible by using aliens, weird animals, fantasy characters etc.

The stranger you can make it, the stronger the connection is to being able to memorize it.

ISSA Spaced Repetition Flashcards

I’m sure you have heard of the good old fashion flashcards strategy for memorizing terminology. But, I bet you have not heard of spaced repetition flashcards.

Basically, they work the same way as normal flashcards. They have one definition on one side and the answer on the other.

The biggest difference comes when you understand the order that these flashcards are shown to you.

With spaced repetition flashcards, you are studying on a program that can learn which cards are easy for you in which cards are more difficult.

It will then show you what you are more difficult cards with more frequency until you get better at them. your easy cards will not be shown to you that often because you already have them memorized.

This saves a ton of time overall.
