Another free Study Tip When you study a chapter for an exam, review it frequently until the time of the exam, even if the exam is a year away. You don't need to review the whole chapter, but you can review only the skeleton of the chapter. Use mnemonics to remember information presented in the form of numbers and other difficult information you frequently forget.
