Free Study Tip When it is time to study you need to turn off your cell phone or anything else. When you are studying, you need your own personal space and no one to interrupt you. For example, if one of your friends comes to your house asking if you can play, don't stop studying. Tell your friend 'No, I can't. I'm studying for a really important test. Talk to you later.'
