Another free Study Tip I'm going to give you the shortcut to good results - Read, Read, Read (in a systematic way). This year I got super hit A plus and all I had to do was read. When you read, even if your mind is flying try to concentrate. Even if you find it hard to focus, just sit with your book. Eventually you'll find out that you are extremely attentive. Also, don't waste much time. It's very unwise.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When you need to remember something, draw a silly picture.The sillier it is, the better. Incorporate words if needed. A cartoon mouse with a sour lemon making a face will help you to remember the French word for mouse (souris). Write 'Souris' on his t-shirt too and have him saying 'This lemon IS SOUR!
