Another free Study Tip 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.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Study during the evening between 6 and 9 and write down what you remember just before you go to sleep. In the morning when you wake up try to recall the information you studied the previous night. Then glance at what you wrote. In this way you will not forget what you studied. Practice and hard work gives better results.
