Another free Study Tip This may sound crazy, but if I really feel I HAVE to get into the material even more I put on some LOUD and adrenaline-pumping music. I can read the material while the music is blasting in the background and do very well comprehending what I read!! I also outline the chapters and usually make note cards as well. Works great.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Keep a notebook to write down all assignments and homework with their due dates. As you finish with an assignment mark it off your list. You should also keep a handy snack nearby when studying, such as an apple or plum.
