Another free Study Tip Play lots of sports and go to lots of parties. Then the night before you have a test have an aroma therapy massage along with some therapeutic music. Have the masseuse read aloud some notes you made. Then when you are taking the test, think of the music and the information will come flooding back to you. Well, it works for me and all my friends and all their friends. We do it together as a fun night out!
