A random study tip submitted by one of our visitors "Be attentive in class. Listen and try to understand in the class. Ask all your questions to the teacher before leaving class. Don't wait to cram until the exam comes. Every day revise the part you learned the other day. Try to recall it to put it into your long-term memory. Do all the work regularly and if you find anything difficult to learn write it until you learn it. Avoid all distractions when learning.
