  A good idea  
 
Keep your book bag organized. Donít just dump papers into your book bag as your school day goes on. Have a separate folder for each class in which you can keep handouts and homework assignments.

Another 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 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!
