For many students the thought of studying physics makes them nervous. They are unable to understand its myriad concepts, memorize its definitions and make sense of its convoluted formulas. But they need not dread this subject. If one were to take genuine interest in the various topics and show a passion for learning its concepts, they can quite easily master physics and one day make a good career by pursuing it.
1. Keep up with all the developments
If you were to read a lot on what is happening in the world of physics even outside of your school courses, you will find the subject more interesting. You will be able to understand how all the concepts that you study are applied in the real world. You will be up-to-date with the latest inventions and you will find that with enough hard work you can make a good career in many areas of research and industrial development.
2. Join a study group
When students study as a group, it is always better. It is the perfect way to resolve doubts and have queries answered. You can share notes, be updated with the latest academic developments, and in the spirit of friendly rivalry get motivated to perform better.
3. Take maximum advantage of lecture notes
Make sure you take notes of all the lectures that you attend. Once the class is over, go back to your dormitory and review all the notes. Read the notes once again before the next class begins. Make a list of all the questions you have and get the answers clarified by the teacher as quickly as possible.
4. Focus on definitions and formulas
Physics is full of definitions and formulas. Unless you master ways of memorizing and calculating them, you will find that you cannot get far in this subject. So keep working at them till you are completely thorough with them.
