"STAND UP, STEP FORWORD, and TAKE ALL THE RESPONSIBILITY ON YOUR SHOULDERS. AND KNOW THAT YOU'RE THE CREATOR OF YOUR OWN DESTINY. ALL THE STRENGTH AND SUCCESS YOU WANT IS WITHIN YOURSELF! SO ALWAYS BE POSITIVE, BE YOURSELF. REMEMBER YOU CAN DO SOMETHING BETTER THAN ANYBODY ELSE. SO ALWAYS LISTEN TO YOUR INNER VOICE AND TRY TO OBEY THAT!!! AND REMEMBER WINNERS DON'T DO DIFFERENT THINGS, THEY JUST DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY."

"Study things you don't already know. It sounds obvious, but too many people study material they already know rather than things they don't."

"For girls, it has been proven that scents help you to remember things, so wear a specific scented lotion or perfume while you study, then wear it again during the test. I have tried it and it works. Believe me!"

"Whatever you read, review is the most important thing. If you read something, review it after 10 minutes and again after 24 hrs. It is best if you review without looking at the book or source. At first it may be difficult, but when it becomes a habit you can catch everything very fast."
"I take some of my notebooks home and write the things down twice that I need to remember. Then I write questions down about the notes that I wrote. I go to one of the adults in my house to ask me the questions and make up some of their own so I don't know the answer automatically. I do this every three school days."
