  A good idea  
 
When studying for a math test, complete all the problems provided in your textbook. Do this a number of times so that solving the problems becomes routine. Donít just look up the answer to a problem when you become stuck. Keep trying to work the problem out before looking up the answer.

Another free Study Tip I find that if I write all of my weekly goals onto a whiteboard and cross them off as I complete them, it helps me to feel like I'm accomplishing something. I think of each task as a hurdle to jump over and think things like '5 more assignments till a bit of a break' to stay focused and work even harder on those 5 assignments. The idea of a break or another completed obstacle definitely helps me to stay focused and complete everything to the best of my ability.
