Finding out your learning style is very helpful when studying. There are three types of learning styles and you can take the quiz on this website to find out your style. If you're better at learning by looking, you can draw graphs and diagrams to help. If you're better at listening then maybe read your notes out loud and record them. If you learn stuff more by doing things, you can try building things.

Find a quiet spot to study with no distractions(no phones, ipads or music) and read over the things you need to study.

Put time aside to study a little every night. Set a timer to takes “brain breaks” so you’re not overwhelming yourself with information and able to retain more. If you have a partner helping you, make sure you’re having them mix up the questions so you aren’t just answering based on what you know is coming next- it won’t help you when you get to your test.
