Free Study Tip Do not study the day of the test. Study and then go to sleep 15-30 minutes early the night before to help you retain the information. Studying the day of the test gives you stress. You should be well prepared before the test. If you feel the need to study just before the test, you are doing something wrong, which shows you didn't study enough.
