Another free Study Tip A good study tip is to make flash cards. Just the fact that you have to rewrite your notes helps you study. I used to use this writing-down trick when I was learning my lines for a play. It always worked. Also flashcards are an excellent way to study because once you know most of them, you can subtract the ones you know. Then you can focus more intently on the things you don't know. I'm an LD Student and I have been getting excellent grades using this trick and many others.
