Another free Study Tip I like to draw pictures to help me remember things. I remember them in my mind. I'm good at art, but you don't have to be.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I try to study often but sometimes I just can't get to it that day. Don't stay up all night trying to remember things that you don't think you know. Instead just go over the things you know. You can always look things over the next day and just hope for the best. Always try your hardest no matter how much you think you don't know.
