  A good idea  
 
Don't work on two assignments at the same time. You won't be able to concentrate on either one very well. Concentration means focusing on one thing to the exclusion of everything else.

Another free Study Tip "I read the textbook out loud so that the information will remain in my brain. I also concentrate to make sure I understand my notes. If I get tired I have a break for at least 5 minutes. I use my notes to review the final week before the exam"

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!
