Another free Study Tip Always try to read in a comfortable place. If you read in a uncomfortable place you'll lose attention and that won't help you study. While taking notes choose a big table. I myself use a computer table with big space and shelves. Play music if it helps you to concentrate but not on high volume.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors It is better to study a particular subject intensively in a day rather than studying up to five subjects in one day. Focusing on one subject at a time will enable you to cover more instead of putting too much stress on the brain. Secondly, if you study at night, avoid sitting in a very comfortable position, studying in bed, or lying face down.
