A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors I take as many pieces of paper as I need for the subject I'm studying. I write questions and answers on each. I place them on my floor. I'll look away, think of the answer, then look back to see if its right. What I do it makes it so much easier to do better on a test or quiz!
