Free Study Tip I used to try to remember math formulas by writing them over and over. There got to be to many to remember that way. What I do now is to understand how a formula is derived. Then I don't have to rely only on my memory.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Use the holidays to try to catch up with your mates or even get ahead of them. Review the syllabus for each of your classes and take good study notes. Get a good night's sleep before the day of a test. Exercise is good for the brain so try to do at least 30 minutes of exercise every day.
