Here are two study tips from over 1,500 tips submitted by students and teachers
I find that I remember things well if I draw them down (diagrams) and use a dry erase marker and write down the notes once I have studied them to revise or remember them. It then seems to stick in my head. Most importantly, review your notes, otherwise you will tend to forget what you memorized fairly quickly. Hope this helps.

I try to keep to the time I have set aside for studying. For example if I decide to study for 2 hours first I do my homework and the time I have left in my two hour block I divide it between subjects I need to study for.

Here are two teachings tips from our collection of over 250 practical tips
Listening for Verbal Signals
Encourage your students to listen for verbal signals as you and other teachers lecture. Focus on statements that signal key concepts (e.g., most important), support for a point (e.g., for instance), differences (e.g., on the other hand), and summarization (e.g., in conclusion).
Your students will be more effective note takers if they pay attention to these verbal signals.
Having Materials Ready
Be proactive by placing all materials and supplies students need to do their work in bins that are easily accessible to them. Lessons can be disrupted if you have to continually stop to provide one or more students with the supplies and materials they need for the lesson or assignment.
