Judith Vasquez's curator insight, April 3, 2016 11:37 PM
I basically looked up this topic because I want to do better in school like in exams. While reading this article, it reminded me a lot about my psychology class because we've learned plenty on learning and different studying methods. This article was helpful because it reinforced what I have already been told before. Like "calm down, think positively and you’ll do fine" when I'm stressing out about something I think is going bad, like a test I'm not prepared for. This article backs that up with studies on students and how well they did depending on whether they were stressing or not. They say that worrying about an exam takes up space in our working memory that can be used to answer problems instead. I think this source is reliable because it was posted on the New York Times website. The author also states their information is from a doctor from the University of Chicago so I believe it’s quite credible.
