Free Study Tip I'm taking Trigonometry now and it's hard. I study it every day with a friend in the same class. We work out the homework problems together - two heads are better than one.

Another free Study Tip Make your own vocabulary flashcards. This will help you to remember the words and what they mean. Don't be lazy and use your friend's cards. This will prevent him from learning and the terms may not be correct. Do not print your flashcards online. You will remember better if you do the writing out.
