I have 3. First, listen to music. It's proven to help you focus and be more productive. Secondly, give yourself some space. Don't let anything bother you. Don't leave on the TV, or constantly have to switch songs. Just pay attention to your notes. Lastly, take breaks! Studying for hours makes your more subject to daydreaming. A break can be anything from playing video games to going for a run. But don't make it too long.

Don't be afraid to ask for help. It's a sign of courage and the wise thing to do when you don't understand something or if you feel like you're falling behind. It's not a sign of weakness, you'll thank yourself later in life when you learn this skill.

Record yourself reading your chapter or notes out loud, then play the recording back to you while you are exercising, cleaning, etc.. I find it works better if I try speaking with the recording like if you were singing a good song or repeating a movie line.

Always drink water while studying and when you feel tired, exercise even if it's just jumping jacks or taking a walk and listening to music. Use your breaks to do your daily workout routine. It will increase your energy levels and help you concentrate.

I like to use Quizlet.com and the Read and Write Program that read the scanned text out loud to me. Also sometimes I look up educational Youtube videos and when I watch them I also read the captions. Flash cards are also helpful.
