  A good idea  
Sometimes a change of scenery may help. No matter how good your study place is, occasionally you may become bored studying there. Try taking your study materials to the library or perhaps, to a quiet place in the park at these times.

Another free Study Tip When studying, don't look at what you know when you begin. Start with what you know you would fail at. When you get better at these, add in what you knew at the start. It helps to chew flavored gum when studying, and when a test comes along, chew on that same flavor.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors In class, always pay attention to what the teacher is saying. When I was younger the teacher always told us to listen very well because in what she said were the answers. It would be hard to understand the lesson otherwise. Pay attention and listen well and everything will get really easy, and don't be shy to ask the teacher questions.
