  A good idea  
 
When studying for a math test, complete all the problems provided in your textbook. Do this a number of times so that solving the problems becomes routine. Donít just look up the answer to a problem when you become stuck. Keep trying to work the problem out before looking up the answer.

Another free Study Tip Don't procrastinate and put off studying the hard stuff until the last minute, or you will regret it. Try and cover the hard sections first. For example, suppose you have to learn an irregular French verb and where to put the comma in English. If English is easier for you, don't spend an hour looking at it, especially if you already know it. Do an hour of French and then you can do English with whatever time you have left.
