Another free Study Tip People think that studying is all about reading again and again. I think that too. The only problem that students like me have is that sometimes we don't understand what we read, and we're scared to ask questions. But I've learned that asking questions is the best help you can get from anybody. DON'T BE SCARED, STAND UP AND SPEAK UP FOR YOURSELF! You'll feel really good - I promise.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors Every student should understand the topic. Don't simply memorize the topic by heart. It doesn't help. By understanding the topic clearly we gain a lot of knowledge and confidence. It helps us everywhere.
