How to study more efficiently?

I myself am not a book guy! I might read like 2-3 books each year (Beside textbooks.) But recently I’ve discovered a technique that helps me study more. Have you ever heard of Pomotodo apps?

What they do is simply they are like timers which help you track your reading time. My suggestion is: take a short 5 minutes break after 20 minutes of studying. Then after 3 times of 20 min study, take a long break. For me 30 minutes of long break works well. But you can reduce it to 15 minutes. 

To do this you can simply use your phone’s timer or download a Pomotodo app. My favorite one is BeFocused. Here are some screenshots.

It’s a free app. You can download it for iOS and Android. There are also similar apps for windows phone.

Another tip to read lots of books.

You can set a goal for yourself. Like “I’m gonna read 20 pages each day.” Or less. Or more. I’ve learned these stuff from Thomas Frank.
