Do you have any good study tips for me?

First find a nice quiet place where you won’t be distracted by family or friends.

Then get all of your materials that you are going to need to avoid breaking your concentration. Next, you need to make a list of the of the most important things that need to get done first and things that will take you the longest. Then break down your “to do” list into subcategories and estimate how long it will take you to do things. The most important thing is that you stay hydrated, eat healthy meals, and always get a good night’s sleep. One thing that helps studying is if you study for 20 to 50 minutes then take a 10 to 15 minute break.

First, before you study anything find out what’s going to be on the test and find out what kind of test it is. For example, if it will be a multiple choice, or an essay etc. Study at a time when you are alert and not hungry or sleepy. Don’t wait till the last minute. Short, daily study sessions are better than cramming the night before.

Set goals for each study period. If you are being tested on all three chapters, then set up four study sessions, one for each chapter then one for review. If you are working on a project, than set goals like you would want to have something done by this date. Always repeat, read and reread your notes and the key parts. And you can not have a negative attitude about studying otherwise you will never get anywhere.
