A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors It all depends on what kind of learner you are. Once you have this figured out you will be able to study in the most effective manor. I personally need to study in a space with no noise or no distractions (this includes food). Pictures also help me out a lot. Make notes on the topic you are studying and review them over a number of days. Don't wait until the last minute! Pace yourself!
