Another free Study Tip Go through your syllabus before the lecture. In fact, consider the lecture as a revision class session. If there's something that you don't know, then first try your own available resources, and , of course, the Internet, to get a genuine solution. This makes you self reliant and improves your creativity at the same time.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When I get really stuck on an assignment, I switch to another assignment. When I come back to the first assignment, it's like a new start. I have my energy back for the assignment and usually can get past where I was stuck.
