Another free Study Tip While reading from a textbook, try to highlight points that seem hard or important first. Then while reading a second time, emphasize them and try writing them in a notebook or notepad. Keep doing this until you can write the points perfectly in the words of the textbook.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors To study you need concentration. Be a smart reader and during study "play" with your books and assume that you are the best player. Challenge yourself to be the best scorer in your studies. BEST OF LUCK!!!!
