Free Study Tip I study well when I've just woken up from sleep -whatever time of day. My mind seems to be able to hold more information, and stuff from lessons just miraculously comes crawling back to my brain. I always take short breaks every hour and try and switch subjects around. Otherwise I get bored easily. If I've got less to review , I switch and do some drawing (nothing to do with studies - it just relaxes me!).

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 When I learn something new, I go over the points on the same day. I especially focus on one subject each day. This helps me to remember my lessons and has helped me to get good marks in 10th.
