A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Notes are vital for studying. A great tip on writing notes is to write in colourful pens as it would attract your attention to read. But, keep to a few colours. Make sure you leave S P A C E S so it's not messy. It's also very helpful to draw diagrams in your notes so the page wouldn't look so dull. Lastly, and the MOST important, READ your notes regularly!
