Free Study Tip Good notes equals easier studying. Not sure how to take notes? Start by writing down facts that your teacher mentions or writes on the board during class.

A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors It is difficult for me to remember the lessons from teachers. So I need to note down the lessons. Then I study at home after I come back from school, and I read my notes twice. After that I write down what I remember. Try it everyday so your brain can become accustomed.
