Another free Study Tip Before studying, condition your mood first - listen to music. Don't try to memorize information, but just familiarize yourself with it. Eat nuts or chocolates for energy while studying. Don't study beyond 9:00 pm. Stop at the point where nothing is being absorbed by your brain.
