Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers
Some of my friends cram the night before an exam. I do the very opposite. I do things to relax and then get a good night's sleep. I don't give any thought to the exam until the morning.

Take notes in class. They don't need to be neat but just easy for you to read. Write down as much as you can and then when you get home rewrite the notes in a notebook with organization and great penmanship!

Listening for Verbal Signals
Encourage your students to listen for verbal signals as you and other teachers lecture. Focus on statements that signal key concepts (e.g., most important), support for a point (e.g., for instance), differences (e.g., on the other hand), and summarization (e.g., in conclusion).
Your students will be more effective note takers if they pay attention to these verbal signals.
Give students adequate time to respond to questions you ask during a lecture or a discussion. Allowing sufficient time enables students to think a question through before responding. The period of silence between your question and a student response is actually a positive.
