Another free Study Tip Knowledge is power, so you must try to acquire it. Learning should be done at dawn to ensure that you will remember what you learn. Personal notes should be made from what you learn.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When studying try to think of your notes as a book. Then read your notes pretending you have never seen them before. Try to study in various places around your home, like outside, on a bed, etc. When you are done studying, ask a parent, friend, or sibling to quiz you. You could also call a friend and ask for suggested ways to remember specific terms.
