Free Study Tip Study is like food. We should make a study schedule like we do our eating schedule. Study needs time and the best time for me to study is 6am to 8am and then 6pm to 10pm. Late night study doesn't bring good results and is not good from a physical point of view. Make a habit of daily reading and you will succeed.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Keep a special binder for each subject. Once every month go through all of the papers. Put away any you have been tested on. Also, start to study a week before the test.
