Another free Study Tip Firstly, keep away from all distractions such as cell phone, iPod, and TV. Then use a technique in which you visualize what you are studying, then imagine what it actually is, then try to make an answer in your own words. Then use your textbook to improve your vocabulary. Note: This technique only in theory subjects.
