Free Study Tip You should study even if you don't have a scheduled test because your teacher may give a pop quiz . Or, your teacher might even just ask you a couple of questions that you won't know because you didn't study. Also, it is good to study early because research shows that if you study at the last minute you won't remember much because you cannot remember very much with so little time.
