Data dump everything you know about the topic of your test in the margins. Of course, the only way to do this is to review your notes from your classes 5-10 minutes each day. For students that have no job, school is your "job" and your grades are your payment. If you do a great job in school, you may get a bonus payment...a scholarship!!! Find yourself a mentor in each subject that you take (you can do this by asking your teacher to suggest a great student of theirs from the past). The student will likely have tips and guide you through how the teacher likes certain systems ran in the classroom and could never hurt to know!

When teachers ask questions in class, write them down in a notebook so you have an idea of what could be on the test.

Use notecards for vocab and then each vocab word you don’t know, put into a pile (or star if using an online feature). Later go back and look at each one of these in your notes, the teachers notes, or your textbook and write down 3 sentences about the term. It really helps!

Quizlet is a free online tool that can be used for multiple subjects, even foreign language! You can create your own flash cards on the site or use sets that are already created by students and teachers. Sets of flash cards can be studied online or printed out. There are multiple games which can help you memorize information, and you can even create a test for yourself when you're done. If you're an auditory learner you can turn on the audio component and it will read the information to you. It's an awesome resource!
