Free Study Tip Make flash cards . . . they help with EVERY subject! If you have a large pile, split them up into groups and study each group at a time. Then once all groups have been studied, practice the cards all together. Then separate the cards you properly know/understand from the ones that you still need to learn, and just focus on those. This way you make sure you know every one.

Another free Study Tip Don't procrastinate and put off studying the hard stuff until the last minute, or you will regret it. Try and cover the hard sections first. For example, suppose you have to learn an irregular French verb and where to put the comma in English. If English is easier for you, don't spend an hour looking at it, especially if you already know it. Do an hour of French and then you can do English with whatever time you have left.
