Another free Study Tip You can study anywhere. Obviously, some places are better than others. Libraries, study lounges or private rooms are best. Above all, the place you choose to study should not be distracting. Distractions can build up, and the first thing you know, you're out of time and out of luck. Make choosing a good physical environment a part of your study habits.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors When you're about to take a test make sure you relax, take a deep breath, and remind yourself it is just a test and you have been doing it all year or month. All a test is a homework sheet with all the studies you have learned. So make sure you are calm and relaxed. Then you will know that you can finish it.
