Just go to your teacher and say to her/him what you really don't get! Do not be afraid if you he/she does not like you. Just go up to them and say what you don't get.

      Stevie, Student, 6th Grade - New York  04/25/2007


I always make outlines for the reading material. It makes comprehension much easier. Plus you have notes to study with.

      Vanita, Student, Post Undergrad - Texas  05/14/2007


Throughout the academic year I make short notes on portions studied. As exams near, these notes will help and lighten the process of review. To memorize figures I always try to connect them with personal events so that they automatically become part of my memory.

      Parameswaran, Teacher, Post Graduate - India  05/20/2007


Make your time manageable! My teachers are saying that if you are tired take a little rest so that you will not get too stressed.

      Melissa, Student, 6th Grade - Philippines  06/11/2007


Write in different colored pens/pencils. Put on some soft calm music so if you're going crazy you can just stop and be calm and then come back to studying after a song or two. Just be calm and make sure you've eaten before you start studying.

      Jen, Student, 8th Grader - Michigan  06/16/2007


Self-trust is the most important thing.

      Meiling, Student, 10th Grade - China  04/26/2007


When studying in groups instead of keeping the music on and talking about irrelevant stuff quiz each other before you start and then read out loud material to one another and then quiz again.

      Guy, Student, 8th Grade - Texas  09/13/2007


Always pay good attention in class so you could take good notes so you could have them if you are going to take a test and you could study the notes too.

      Rickey, Student, 4th Grade - Illinois  04/09/2007


If you sit next to somebody who is distracting you, then ask the teacher if you can move.

      Kendra, Student, 2006-2007 - Oklahoma  05/24/2007


What I have found helpful is that if you are like me and can't get enough of your mp3 player, record yourself reciting the notes... and then put it on your mp3 player and listen to it. It really helps.

      Jazz, Student, 10th Grade - USA  07/08/2007


Make Flash Cards. They're an easy, simple way to study various things.

      Abby, Student, 7th Grade - USA  09/07/2007


I review my notes every night.

      Ritzi, Student, 1st Year College - Philippines  10/30/2007


While you study,you need a quiet place to read and to answer all your questions from your reviews.

      Jasmine, Student, 5th Grade - Ontario, Canada  11/03/2007


Studying well during your free time.

      Nathanael, Student, 2nd Year College - Philippines  10/26/2007


If you have a hard time comprehending a certain subject, turn to other resources such as magazines, encyclopedias, etc. Also, a full-time schedule helps you stay on track, and it can help you go to bed at a decent time (if you have a decent time on your schedule, of course.)

      Alicia, Student, 8th Grade - Texas  04/28/2007


You must take your mind off the TV and more on the books so you can go to high school.

      Bridget, Student, 3rd Grade - New Jersey  05/27/2007


Go in a quiet room where you won't get distracted.

      Shannon, Student, 6th Grade - Michigan  11/07/2007


Don't leave everything off till the last minute. You'll never succeed like that.

      Christa, Student, 7th Grade - Virginia  09/27/2007


1. Sleep at least 8 hours a day. 2. Your brain can't work for more than 4 hours a day, so don't exceed this or you will tire too much and you won't be able to study much the next day. 3. Put aside a time for yourself to practice your exam papers. 4. If you aren't used to studying for a long time without getting up after 10 minutes, don't push yourself to sit for an hour all of a sudden. Gradually work your way up, adding a few minutes every day. This way your body will get used to this easily.

      Hilary, Student, 8th Grade - Alabama  10/18/2007


Have a clear mind and nothing else as important to do for the whole day if possible. When you need to take a break, do so. Don't force yourself to get everything done at once. Do what works for you when it comes to studying, a quiet room, low music, etc.

      Amanda, Student, Bachelors Of Science In C.S.I - Washington  09/23/2007


When you have a big test such as an exam, have someone make up some questions for you that might be on the test. I had my grandma ask me questions about my history and i do struggle in History and I got an A- on my test.

      Jessica, Student, 9th Grade - Michigan  04/06/2007


Tests, Quizzes, and Exams are normal for classtime. Study at least 30 minutes per day. It can help you so you don't need to cram for a test.

      Jasmine, Student, 5th Grade - Ontario, Canada  11/28/2007


Try listening to music, it really helped me.

      Katheryn, Student, 9th Grade - Florida  08/28/2007


If you study a topic many times you can understand the topic and even remember the topic in your brain. I usually do this in the morning.

      Rilwana, Student, SEC 1 - Malaysia  09/16/2007


Record yourself reading the notes that are needed for the test or quiz and relisten to it over and over again.

      Lily, Student, 9th Grade - New Jersey  09/06/2007


Always try to read in a comfortable place. If you read in a uncomfortable place you'll lose attention and that won't help you study. While taking notes choose a big table. I myself use a computer table with big space and shelves. Play music if it helps you to concentrate but not on high volume.

      Justinian, Student, O level - New Zealand  04/01/2007


Read over and over again whatever you're trying to learn. If it's memory also try to remember over and over again what it is that needs to be remembered. Do not wait until the last minute. If you do, it's like trying to play chess without knowing what the pieces do. Remember the 4 Ps: Poor Planning leads to Poor Performance. Or, if you fail to plan then plan to fail. Read, study, play, and learn ahead of time.

      Sonny, Student, 2nd Year - Philippines  06/13/2007


When I study, I make sure I have all materials needed and peace and quiet. If you're studying vocabulary, try to find words or phrases similar to the term to help you remember its definition.

      Brittany, Student, 10th Grade - North Carolina  09/17/2007


You need to study every day of the week if you expect to pass to the next grade and go on to college. No college will accept you if you don't have the grades. You need an 'A' average to get into college. So it's important to study, study, study, study.

      Stephen, Student, 6th Grade - Louisiana  03/27/2007


Have some fragrance around you, say room freshener or a fragrance stick - it really helps!

      Shriya, Student, High School - India  09/03/2007


Always come into your class with a smile on your face and be ready for all the information that your teacher has to offer to you. Yeah it can get hard sometimes but keep going and you will make it through the class!

      Amber, Teacher, 4th Grade Math Teacher - Colorado  05/29/2007


Flashcards are the MOST effective way to study for most people. The repetition of the information helps you to recall, and allows you to pinpoint what you know and what you don't. It's a good idea to keep your flashcards even after the test is over. Just store them away in a safe place. You never know when you'll need them again, especially for finals.

      Dea, Student, 11th Grade - Florida  09/09/2007


Study smart and study hard, and pay attention when you are in class.

      Kayleen, Student, 10th Grade - Michigan  07/28/2007


Do not omit anything while studying. Go through the whole lesson. Explain it to yourself like a story. Understand the concept and concentrate.

      Sashaank, Student, 2005 - India  07/01/2007


1. Do homework right away so you don't worry about getting it done. 2. Do your best. 3. Don't slack off, it only gets harder. 4. Try to get your work done in class when you have the chance. 5. Always ask questions no matter what everyone might think, because they have the same questions.

      Kayla, Student, 8th Grade - Colorado  08/14/2007


Believe in yourself! Take action! Never give up! Do your best!

I listen to music while studying to block out any other distracting noises.

Success is nothing but 99 percent adjustment and 1 percent perspiration. Adjustment means adjustment to the surrounding in which you are studying.

      Aditya, Student, Eleventh - India  07/23/2007


Concentration is very important. If you are reading a book and your mind wanders someplace else, I think it is a waste of time. Try to clear your mind first before you start reading.

      Tommy, NULL - Malaysia  05/29/2007


When you study a chapter for an exam, review it frequently until the time of the exam, even if the exam is a year away. You don't need to review the whole chapter, but you can review only the skeleton of the chapter. Use mnemonics to remember information presented in the form of numbers and other difficult information you frequently forget.

      Ahmad, Postgraduate Physician - Egypt  04/03/2007


When you need to remember something, draw a silly picture.The sillier it is, the better. Incorporate words if needed. A cartoon mouse with a sour lemon making a face will help you to remember the French word for mouse (souris). Write 'Souris' on his t-shirt too and have him saying 'This lemon IS SOUR!

      Nancy, Teacher, Middle School - New Jersey  07/24/2007


Practice with as many past papers as possible. If you don't know the answer, look for it your textbooks and notes.

      Safa, Student, 12th Grade - Sri Lanka  04/13/2007


Students must study without distraction of mind. They must study a minimum of two hours to a maximum of four hours a day. They must make a habit of studying daily. They must have a definite place or a spot to study. Before studying they must meditate a minimum five minutes to maximum ten minutes. If they follow these suggestions, they will score very very good marks for sure. Try these and see the difference in you and your studies.

      Nityaa, Student, A1 Grade In All Years - India  10/19/2007


Studying at night is really good because at night the atmosphere is silent. Take some snacks with coffee and listen to music. Don't think that there are a lot of pages you have to complete. Just read and learn one by one.

      Shanu, Student, 12th Grade - India  09/09/2007


It is scientifically proven that chewing gum whilst working improves your concentration, so chew away!

      Ashleigh, Student, 9th Grade - Australia  10/19/2007


If you need to memorize a lot of vocabulary words in a short amount of time, make flashcards. Read the definition lots of times so it sticks. Then mix all of them up. Its a great way to study for finals!

      Megan, Student, Grade 11 - Alberta, Canada  08/18/2007


I am a student from Taiwan and I go to an American school. We have lots of tests there and I always study by going over my homework and doing it again. Or maybe I just look over my notes for a period of time.

      Jerry, Student, 6th Grade - China  04/11/2007


Always focus and know what is ahead of you. In whatever you do you must always keep in mind that your career comes first and that to achieve your goal you have to study very hard.

      Samuel, Student, 12th Grade - Australia  06/17/2007


I always try to copy all my notes more than once and underline something if my teachers say something more then once. It really helps!

      Jessica, Student, 7th Grade - Texas  08/01/2007


Stay patient and never give up, and believe in yourself!

      Taylor, Student, 9th Grade - Indiana  03/21/2007


The best thing I've done is write information onto coloured paper (different colours for different subjects) and sellotaped them to the outside of my glass shower wall so while I am having a shower I read the information. It's amazing how much you take in without realizing.

      Catherine, Student, Year 13-7th Form - New Zealand  08/27/2007


Make a study timetable for after-school hours. Make sure to include free time and favourite tv shows, social things and sporting commitments to make it easier to stick to. I find it gets your parents off your back when you show them the timetable so they don't nag you to study all the time!

      Sally, Student, 12th Grade - Australia  11/25/2007


If you listen to music when you do your homework or your work always seems rushed,then instead of listening to rock or hip hop try listening to classical music it will slow you down and you will be able to concentrate better.

      Katherine, Student, 4th Grade - California  12/03/2007


Never take studies as a burden. Study once a day whenever you feel like it but with full concentration. Make up your mind to study the long and tough lessons first, and the short and easy ones at the end.

      Afshan, Student, 9th Grade - United Arab Emirates  09/16/2007

Turn on a bright light and sit in a comfortable chair. When you find yourself daydreaming, stand up and turn around. This will get you to realize when your mind wanders and get you back on track quickly.

      Lucinda, Student, 9th Grade - Ohio  07/25/2007


When you're about to take a test make sure you relax, take a deep breath, and remind yourself it is just a test and you have been doing it all year or month. All a test is a homework sheet with all the studies you have learned. So make sure you are calm and relaxed. Then you will know that you can finish it.

      Mike, Student, 6th Grade - Nevada  11/28/2007


You could take notes in class and use them to study. Also you could ask somebody at home who understands what you are learning and ask them to help you study for whatever you need to study for. Those are great study skills.

      Sabrina, Student, 07-08 - Maryland  10/03/2007


Create your own workspace.

      Mike, Teacher - California  04/20/2007


When it's time to play, you play! When it's time to study, you study. Most important is that you must have a study plan. Just like Jackson Ng wrote, 'If you do not have a study plan, then you are heading for failure.

      Edith, Student, Form 2 - Malaysia  05/01/2007


Pick up a pen in your hand and go word by word. This will increase your concentration. Read the topic 4 times. The 1st time you will only get an overview. The 2nd time you will be more familiar. The 3rd time you will be able to grasp the message of the topic. The 4th time you will be able to understand the topic as a whole. Now the topic is in your memory. This will work. JUST GO FOR IT.

      Dhiraj, Teacher, Masters - India  08/29/2007


To remember something, firstly I form a sentence with the word(s). Then I draw a picture. For example, to remember the 4 gods Isis, Osiris, Horus, Bastet, I think of something disgusting. That makes me remember it better, and then I draw it. That's my way of studying.

      Lily, Student, 6th Grade - Netherlands  05/16/2007


I listen to music, sit in my room, and do my studying.

      Samantha, Student, Grade 9 - British Columbia, Canada  09/17/2007

      Kristin, Student, Blake Academy 6th 2007 - Florida  11/04/2007


If you want to do well in an exam, you must study hard and regularly. Before an exam, you must check the problems first. Then you must remember not to panic. You must try to bring out the best of yourself. Keep faith in your own worth. Try to answer the best. Just think that you can do it.

      Justinian, Student, O level - New Zealand  04/11/2007

It's always good to have a dictionary, a thesaurus, and other references in your study area. There are often copies of these books in school already, so it generally isn't necessary to be leaving them in lockers when they are more useful at home.

      Katherine, Student, 9th Grade - NewBrunswick, Canada  08/16/2007


I usually study late nights. At that time it's quiet.

      Massod, Student, 10th Grade - California  05/14/2007


Using things like index sheets, diagrams,pictures and colors to help organize your notes, may actually make studying seem more fun. If your work looks interesting to you, there is a greater chance that you will want to make the effort to remember it.

      Cait, Student, 11th Grade - NovaScotia, Canada  07/28/2007


When I study, I go on AIM and review things with my friends. It's a really fun way to study. It also can be a lot more fun than studying by yourself.

      Holly, Student, 8th Grade - Missouri  04/12/2007


I know this sounds weird, but when you study turn some music on, like the kind without any words, just piano like orchestra. Have you ever seen Baby Einstein's? They always have music like that because it helps children learn more. Trust Me It Works!

      Jessica, Student, 8th Grade - Georgia  07/24/2007


Studying can be hard and I know that because I have to study a lot for my Ohio achievement tests. So if you need help do a little at a time. Study for about 1 hour to 1:30 mins. Take notes in class and pay more attention. I hope my tips are helpful to you and remember to study a little at a time.

Take you study guide and think that it is the real test or quiz.

      Ashley, Student, 6th Grade - Connecticut  12/05/2007


One of the best study tips I have is to quiz yourself on the night before a quiz or test, right before you go to bed. Just cover up the answers so you can remember them easier. Not only do they stay in your mind when you go to bed, but you will remember them when you wake up, so chances are, you'll do better on your test.

      Ariella, Student, 9th Grade - Minnesota  05/31/2007

If you have younger brothers or sisters you can't get away from, go to the library. Or, play you MP3 or iPod or stereo. BUT keep the volume low so you can concentrate. Highlight the information you really need.

      Sarah, Student, 11th Grade - United Kingdom  06/27/2007

When you take notes in class and the teacher says something interesting put it in quotation marks so you may remember it easier.

      Lauren, Student, 8th Grade - Maryland  10/03/2007


Morning time is a very fresh time and our mood is also very fresh, so when we read in fresh time we will never forget it. So always do study in morning time. Really it works. Best of luck.

      Minal, Teacher, 12th Grade - India  08/29/2007


When reading a text, start with the table of contents. Frame the text's contents by first reviewing the outline of the work. Then read the preface, chapter introductions, and appendices. Understand the conclusions the author draws from his or her research and evaluation. Lastly, read the chapters you have been assigned. The text's details will make more sense and are likely to be better remembered if they are understood in context.

      David, Teacher, College / University - Maryland  12/15/2007


If you have an abnormally hard time concentrating on your work, it can be worth it to consult a doctor. Sometimes undiagnosed medical conditions can create symptoms similar to an attention deficit disorder.

      Stephanie, Student, 11th Grade - Colorado  05/22/2007


My father said the ideal time to study is around 7.30 a.m. till 11.30 a.m. I think it's because our mind is usually more 'fresh' and alert in mornings. The foods you take also determine how much your brain acts like a sponge to absorb things you've studied. So, maintain a healthy diet and try to reduce your junk food intake. Good luck!

      Amalina, Student, Form 2 - Malaysia  06/08/2007


Research has shown that studying at 18 degrees Celsius (64 degrees Fahrenheit) will give you the best results... Try it... I tried it and it works!

      Jojo, Student, Secondary 1 Of 2007 - Singapore  08/01/2007


I find it very helpful and useful to write information down on a bit of coloured card and cut to size and stick in on my wall. The reason why I find it helpful is because the colour attracts my attention and also helps remind me of the bit of information I need to remember. Try it girls and boys. It might be very helpful.

      Sarah, Student, 11th Grade - United Kingdom  06/12/2007


I study my lesson in a place where I can focus, a silent place. I go to a place like my school library. I make sure I undestand everything I wrote in my notebook, and I always review my notes. I keep on reviewing everytime I arrive in the house and when I have free time I also study. There's always a time for study. Just study hard - it's for your education.

      Jennifer, Student, LCC-B/ CHM 1,1st Yr - Qatar  10/10/2007

Read your notes!

      Hana, Student - Ireland  04/26/2007


I think you should make some flash cards and study the night you are assigned the work all the way until you take the quiz/test. You should also find a friend in your class and study with them. Eating also helps. Study groups help a lot.

      Othello, Student, 10th Grade - Rhode Island  09/21/2007

Read the subject carefully.

      Isha, Student, 7th Grade - Alabama  04/16/2007


I chew gum while I study. I know it sounds weird, but I did a science project on it and chewing gum helps more oxygen to flow to your brain, allowing it to increase memorization.

If it is a multiple choice question, 'X' out the answers you know are wrong.

      Kathy, Student, 5th Grade - Minnesota  04/23/2007


I find that if you are bored with studying, you should make flashcards and go out and ride a bike or something and have someone come with you to quiz you on the flash cards. It is a great way to study without getting bored out of your mind!

      Hayley, Student, 8th Grade - Virginia  08/31/2007


When doing experiments, labs, or activities in a classroom, teachers will often ask for a report of some sort. These reports are almost always good study notes, especially if you put a lot of effort into them. Therefore, it is important to put as much detail into these (and other assignments) to make sure you understand the topic. It is very likely that some teachers will move on to other material once the reports have been handed in.

      Katherine, Student, 9th Grade - NewBrunswick, Canada  08/16/2007


If you find it hard to get down to study clear your desk so that you have an empty space. When you sit down to work clear your mind and you will be able to start afresh each time without studying whilst being stressed and you are more likely to work harder and see the results of your efforts!

      Andrea, Other, Mature Student - United Kingdom  09/04/2007


When taking a test, if you get stuck, don't sit there and wait to think of the answer. Go on and see the other ones you can solve! If you don't, you may not finish the test.

      Brynna, Student, 9th Grade - Pennsylvania  11/25/2007


You have to solve as many questions as you can after studying your lesson to help you keep information in your mind as long as you can. I know it is so boring but it works.

      Fatma, Student, 11 Grade - Egypt  08/06/2007


I read the book I am studying and do any research needed.

      Abby, Student, 4th Grade - Illinois  08/16/2007


When I study, I play classical music to keep me focused on my work (it really helps). Another thing that promises success is putting the most needed information on flash cards. and reviewing it over and over until i fully remember every piece of the information. Also I would stay away from the TV for about 2 hours so you don't get brainwashed and forget everything.

      Helen, Student, 7th Grade - California  08/10/2007


Study in a quiet place.

      Gabrielle, Student, 6th Grade - Ontario, Canada  04/05/2007

Sometimes use a perfume (not too strong) and spray it while you are studying for a test. Then the day of your test, use that same perfume and you will remember what you studied! IT WORKS FOR ME AND MY FRIENDS!

      Lola, Student, 5th Grade - Brazil  04/16/2007


Utilize the time you spend waiting for the bus for example to study or revise parts of a subject your studying.A smart way is to write important notes of a subject on small cards, where you can keep them with you, and whenever you are just have a look at them, this will lock the information in your head!

      Nora, Student, Junior - Qatar  10/22/2007


You're smart, you're well-educated, but there's ALWAYS ways to improve. A good breakfast is one of the answers. Don't just snatch a chocolate bar or a drink can. Those who do that perform equivalent as average 70-year-olds. Plus, have a good sleep. You need some time to process - memories. Sure, you need to race time (to study), but stop once in a while. And I mean, ONCE IN A WHILE.

      Amalina, Student, Form 2 - Malaysia  06/28/2007


Believe in yourself and that you can do what you are trying to do. Don't let anyone or anything distract you. Explain to family members that you are trying to study and want them to respect that! Don't stress! Stressing is the worst thing possible and will distract you from what you are doing. By the end of your study session you will have forgotten everything. Remember to take short breaks.

      Emma, Student, 11th Grade - United Kingdom  05/31/2007


You should listen to whatever your teacher says. Write it and then go back and highlight the important details.

      Kam, Student, 2007 - California  05/16/2007


Use different study methods for different parts of each subject. For example, use flash cards to remember words and dates, draw a mind map linking important points, write practice essays and do practice questions, highlight your notes, rewrite your notes, and keep everything for review later. Listen to classical music, it has been suggested that one studies better while listening to quite relaxing classical music, especially Mozart. His music has been suggested as raising your I.Q.

      Hannah, Student, Year 11 (5th Form) - New Zealand  09/14/2007


I find that concentration in studying, or any academic activity, for that matter, is key. In order to get studying, writing an essay, etc. done, I make sure I do not get out of my chair. This gets rid of all distractions, like getting to up watch TV or get food, and almost always guarantees that I will focus on what I am supposed to do and get the job done.

      Chris, Student, 11th Grade - NovaScotia, Canada  04/15/2007


Write down vocabulary words on post-it notes and then post them up around the house or places in your house that you come to a lot. Then whenever you go by use the post-it note like you would a vocabulary notecard.

      Fleur, Student, 9th - California  10/11/2007

Don't talk during class!

      Shelby, Student, 6th Grade - Texas  08/13/2007


I'm going to give you the shortcut to good results - Read, Read, Read (in a systematic way). This year I got super hit A plus and all I had to do was read. When you read, even if your mind is flying try to concentrate. Even if you find it hard to focus, just sit with your book. Eventually you'll find out that you are extremely attentive. Also, don't waste much time. It's very unwise.

      Justin, Student, 11th Grade - Bangladesh  08/30/2007


I study in a place that makes me feel at peace such as my sun porch or in a church. Sitting on the grass and putting a blanket on the nice warm grass, I get lots of reading done. Studying this way is peaceful and quiet, and nature has a way of making you feel good.

      Devon, Student, College - Michigan  03/26/2007


Take notes about coming events on stick-it paper, and then stick the info on your locker or binder!

      Alison, Student, 7th Grade - Colorado  04/13/2007


A good way to study is to make CORNELL NOTES or C-NOTES. A C-NOTE is a note where you fold a paper 3/4 across. On the left side you write a question and on the right side you write the answer and you fold it and quiz yourself. And if you choose to, on the bottom you can write a summary on what you have learned about.

      Tigger,  - Texas  05/25/2007


We should study in a good temperature and we should not not become a part of family conflicts.

      Ravi, Student, 11th Grade - India  07/22/2007


I think the best way to study is to give yourself a pep talk before you start studying. Say things like 'I can do this' really helps me a lot. And if you get low marks, don't be discouraged to study, you should be more aware because now, you know what you don't know before this! Good Luck! I know it's not easy.

      Sharifah, Student, For m 4 - Malaysia  08/09/2007


Plain and simple. A quiet environment with a comfortable chair and table, and a 24 ounce monster energy drink.

      Bayani, Student, Senior - California  06/05/2007


To read faster, read first with your eyes. If you want to enhance your vocabulary, read aloud clearly and slowly. Analyze what you read too.

      Lara, Student, 5th Grade - India  06/11/2007


If there are too many distractions at home, go to your city library. When you are in the library, use ear plugs to block out sound when studying by yourself. This will increase your concentration and you will not be frustrated when people are talking aloud.

      K., NULL - Ontario, Canada  05/04/2007


Study at least two weeks before the exam. Buy exercise books for all the subjects you are preparing for and for each topic. Create mindmaps -- they really help! I also suggest getting plenty of rest before the big day. If it's a high school maths exam, I suggest doing as many past papers and textbook work as possible. The more questions you do, the better you get.

      R., Student, 9th Grade - Australia  10/10/2007


Some people call it coloring or doodling. The technical term is annotation. The reasons for marking up a hundred-dollar book are sound, however. Use colored pens to make fine underlining, circle key words, and to color code. Jot important notes in the margins. Use curly brackets and stars. Add study hints at the start of each chapter. Come study time these highlights are the quickest comprehensive review.

      Laura, Student, 4th Year BComm 2007/08 - Saskatchewan, Canada  08/06/2007


I review my notes quickly in every subject every night. This little review helps to remember facts easily, not by cramming.

Rewrite everything you have to memorize (over and over and over and over and OVER again)!

      H., Student, 6th Grade - Illinois  11/07/2007


Wake up early before sunrise when the air is fresh and your mood is good. Open the window and read what you studied the day before and have a coffee if you like. This way you will remember everything you have studied all semester, and you won't be late for school.

      Leen, Student, 11th Grade - Jordan  07/18/2007


When I'm at school, I just think about my studying and forget about what happened in my home. It helps me to focus with my study. When I'm being lazy, I tell myself that what I am is what I am supposed to be.

      Kelly, Student, Diploma In Science - Vermont  08/27/2007


You should breathe deeply before you start to take the BIG test like the SAT or ISTEP. Take a lot of notes about the test. Ask your teacher if she can help you get a tutor to help you study for the test.

      A., Student, High School Senior - Indiana  04/07/2007


Study after you wake up in the morning. Your mind is relaxed and still fresh. Therefore you can easily recall what you have read or studied. Then review your notes before the test or exam.

      Eric, Student, 1st Year College - Philippines  10/17/2007


Try to remember the key points in the book. This helps you to review more quickly and effectively. The most important thing is, you need to take notes in class. Some of the things that the teacher talks about in class are not in the book.

      Chan, Student, 7th Grade - Hong Kong  05/11/2007


While you are studying, concentrate on what you are studying. Don't think about T.V. or music and while you are studying, close your cell phone and organize your time to study.

Be a good listener in class and pay attention.

      Taylor, Student, 8th Grade - Maryland  10/03/2007


I try to keep a control over my diet before a few days of the test. This helps in my thinking process. I drink a lot of water and try to do meditation. I also discuss my study chapters and the main idea of the chapter with my family members, which helps me in remembering important information.

      Vibhuti, Student, Graduate 2007 - North Carolina  05/28/2007


Instead of waiting until the last minute to start on your report, the day you get the assignment brainstorm and write a rough draft to give to your teacher and have him correct it. Then ask another teacher to correct over what your teacher corrected and then rewrite your paper using the help of the two different teachers. I guarantee you will get a good grade. It worked for me and it will sure enough work for you.

      Shaqwana, Student, 10th Grade - California  08/11/2007


Get something to eat and drink before you start to study. Then after you eat take a bathroom break. Once you're done with that get your books together and start studying.

Don't highlight things in your textbook, because it makes you think you already know that.

To study well: (1) Don't think about the outcome of studying, continue studying even if it is very hard to understand or practice; (2) Read this website carefully and do it now.

      Hasan, Student, 12th Grade - Sri Lanka  08/21/2007


If you are studying for a test, please do not study the day before the test, because you will only know 5 percent of what you have studied... so study everyday at least half an hour a day. Good luck.

      Alice, Student, 8th Grade - Australia  06/10/2007


Be focused. Don't be distracted by a boyfriend because he is only for a time now. Your education comes first. Making your parents proud is the best thing you will ever do in your life to show your appreciation for their being there for you and always guiding you and paying your school bills, etc. Remember, be focused and speak out for your rights.

      Cassita, Student, 11th Grade - Saint Vincent & Grenadines  04/18/2007

      Sheena, Student, High School Year 1 - Philippines  05/09/2007


It all depends on what kind of learner you are. Once you have this figured out you will be able to study in the most effective manor. I personally need to study in a space with no noise or no distractions (this includes food). Pictures also help me out a lot. Make notes on the topic you are studying and review them over a number of days. Don't wait until the last minute! Pace yourself!

      Alex, Student, 11th Grade - Canada  05/18/2007


If you are lying on your bed and you are too lazy to work, then try to stand up, prepare your homework things, and start working because no one will be behind you to tell you do your homework ok get busy.

      Taylor, Student, 11th Grade - Georgia  12/18/2007


I read a whole paragraph and once I understand it, I write small points about it and review them frequently. I solve as many problems as possible and review questions from past tests to make sure I will be able to answer questions on a test of a similar level. I try to cover all the topics. In case there is no time, I just read a few chapters one or two times.

      Lakshmi, Student, Professional - India  04/08/2007


The worst place to study is on your bed. You can get too comfortable and not pay attention to your work. It is also not good to study around electronics such as computers, televisions, and radios. This is because you might get distracted and again pay more attention to the electronics than your work. Also before a test or exam eat a healthy meal and get plenty of sleep the week of the test so your body is used to going to bed at a specific time. Follow these tips and good luck!

      Samantha, Student, 7th Grade - California  07/18/2007

      Shana, Student, 2007 - Virginia  05/15/2007


Play lots of sports and go to lots of parties. Then the night before you have a test have an aroma therapy massage along with some therapeutic music. Have the masseuse read aloud some notes you made. Then when you are taking the test, think of the music and the information will come flooding back to you. Well, it works for me and all my friends and all their friends. We do it together as a fun night out!

      Jane, Student, 8th Grade - Great Britain  04/25/2007


I have taken many tests and here is a trick with word problems. Do not just add all the numbers up. You have to really read the problem. If you do not understand it the first time, read it over and over until you understand it.

      Brade, Student, 9th Grade - Ontario, Canada  11/26/2007


Sing study songs in the shower. For example, half the sum of the parallel sides, times the distance between them, is the way you calculate the area of a trapezium. Sing this to the tune of 'Pop Goes the Weasel.' Make up your own study songs. This way you are studying whilst having fun!

      Susan, Student, 8th Grade - Great Britain  04/25/2007


If you are studying for finals this is what you have to do! Pick up a pencil or pen and look at your study guide or packet if you have one.

What I do to study is I use note cards. I find this a lot easier than any other way possible. If you are a visual learner this is for you. You can use different colors so that you remember things from the colors. I don't know if this will work for you but it works for me.

      Brittany, Student, 10th Grade - Ohio  04/10/2007


When you study make it into a game. I learn better if it is fun. So try having fun but studying at the same time.

      Mekayla, Student, 7th Grade - Arkansas  05/23/2007


Notes are vital for studying. A great tip on writing notes is to write in colourful pens as it would attract your attention to read. But, keep to a few colours.

      Camille, Student, 6th Grade - Florida  09/05/2007


I am a very visual person and when I decided to go back to school, I wanted anything I knew I would go back to often to be easily accessible.

      Katherine, Student, 9th Grade - NewBrunswick, Canada  08/16/2007


When you prepare to take a test or quiz, my study tip is to study about thirty minutes to one hour every single day. I usually read over my notes and study my vocabulary if needed.

      Dakshit, Student, 12th - India  09/04/2007


When I want to study I say to myself, 'Mark, you don't want to be doing this ALL night.' I have ADD and it is hard to focus. Doing this reminds me of the reality of not focusing. You may want to try it. If you don't get it done, just be honest with your authority figure. They should or hopefully will understand and be human. We all have faults.

      Mark, Student, 10th Grade - California  04/05/2007


Start studying about half a year before the tests. But the week before the test, go on holiday and relax. After all, its only a test!

      Anjali, Student, Form 4 - Malaysia  11/14/2007


I am only in year eight and have school every single day of the week. This means more homework than I can handle. My tip is practice, practice, practice, and more PRACTICE, trying to avoid TV and the computer. Buy books or ask for extra tutoring. It really helped me and I improved a lot. So just sit down and do work, work, WORK. If you are on holiday you might as well work too. But try to eat healthy and become active to have the strength to do the impossible!

      Maria, Student, 8th Grade - Australia  04/17/2007


As soon as you get home and situate yourself at your desk, dive right into your assignments. Sitting and thinking about them is a waste of time AND will allow you to look for excuses not to do them. Complete the most difficult and/or boring tasks first.

Build a study base of your own references. Make your own reference and use a notebook you can share with your friends. It is easy to go through these before an exam starts.

      Rilwana, Student, Sec 1 - Malaysia  08/13/2007


Everyone is different. Find out what ways are best for you and do these. You are not a fool if someone's tips are not working for you. Music is mentioned as an aid. It definitely is a no no for me. I end up performing.

      Liam, Student, College - Ireland  10/22/2007


Hey you kids out there! I think you should have an aim like I tell my kids to have!

KSQ3RO: Know what you are to study. Survey what you need to study. Form questions to answer from studying. Read. Recite to yourself. Sit on your book so you don't peek. Review several times. Overlearn - Continue learning even after you know the material so you will be learning for the long term.

Never procrastinate. If you do then you will never get your assignments done!

      Brynna, Student, 9th Grade - Pennsylvania  11/25/2007


Study in a very quiet place. You may listen to music or put flowers in front of you while you are studying as this might help you to relax and concentrate more!

      Heba, Student, 12th Grade - Egypt  08/23/2007


Study hard! I write beautiful sentences, then select some of them and put them in my composition.

      Jinchao, Student, 5th Grade - China  05/29/2007


A great study habit is to get out and away from any distractions and do your work. One thing that helps me is to take my school work and go somewhere outside and work on it.

      Angela, Student, 2007 - California  11/27/2007


Set up a reward program. Say if you like to play games, then be like if I get a B on this test then I will play games for an hour or so. Make sure it's realistic! Most importantly know were you are headed in the future. If you have an aim in life you tend to work harder at trying to achieve that.

I like to read, underline and then make sketches... I hate to memorize words, because I find it difficult, but I have a very good visual memory.

      Alex, Student, 4th Grade - Delaware  07/27/2007


If your teacher gives you a study packet to fill in the answers, take a blank one the day before the test to fill in the answers as a pretest. This will help calm your nerves and it really works!

      Brianna, Student, 5th Grade - New York  06/04/2007


Be sure to read the textbooks and handouts.

      Ian, Student, LCCB 1st Yr - Philippines  10/12/2007


Get lots of sleep.

      Janay, Student, 6th Grade - Tennessee  08/20/2007


My reading teacher taught me a great way to write paragraphs. Her study tip is to use the ROSES formula: R=Repeat the question that is given, O=give your Opinion, S= State 3 proven facts to help explain your answer, E=Explain your facts in 3 sentences, and S=Sum up your paragraph. If you use this tip it will seriously help you.

      Sara, Student, 7th Grade - Connecticut  12/14/2007


I think before I start to study. Please get ready by mind and body. Relax when you start to study. Get enough sleep. In the morning, start to study 1 hour in each subject otherwise you will get bored. It works for me.

      Rilwana, Student, Sec 1 - Malaysia  08/16/2007


When writing a research paper, it is always best to have a large flat surface to work on so that you can spread out your sources. The kitchen table works well for this. Also, book stands (like cookbook stands) are great for holding up large textbooks while reading or studying. That will save your neck and back from a lot of pain.

      Rose, Student, Graduate School UCLA - California  03/31/2007


Concentration is the key to success while preparing for an examination.

      Raja, Student, Second MBA - India  04/26/2007


To study you need to be in a quiet room alone. That means no TV or radio or even talking on your phone to friends. Study for at least 25 minutes a day until that big, scary test comes. Good luck.

      Joe, Student, 7th Grade - Michigan  12/18/2007


Make flash cards . . . they help with EVERY subject! If you have a large pile, split them up into groups and study each group at a time. Then once all groups have been studied, practice the cards all together. Then separate the cards you properly know/understand from the ones that you still need to learn, and just focus on those. This way you make sure you know every one.

      Stephanie, Student, 11th Grade - Australia  07/01/2007


Eat a well balanced breakfast and have enough sleep. This will help you stay more focused.

      Stephanie, Student, GED (2008) - North Carolina  12/07/2007


Before you study, eat so you will concentrate more. For example, if you're studying biology, read a passage and write questions and answers related to the passage and read them over and over again. Then do a small test to see if you got them into your head.

      Julia, Student, 11th Grade - Malta  08/19/2007


You should be physically, mentally, and emotionally focused. Try to stay alert to what you read. Be positive and tell yourself 'This is fun and I will learn something from it.' Learning never hurts.

      Jennivie Rulete, College Student - Philippines  04/18/2007


Around the beginning of your school year choose any classmate. Tell them that you would like to be their study buddy. Explain that this means that if you are absent or vice versa they can call you so that you know what was for homework. That way you don't get in trouble with your teacher. Especially when you are in Junior or Senior High! Now you can get your homework on time and not get in trouble.

      Nathanial, Student, Grade 8 - Canada  09/02/2007


Take down notes,study in advance,balance my time in studying, and know how to prioritize my studies.

      Tara, Student, First Year College - Philippines  10/22/2007


You should never watch TV when you are studying or you won't be able to concentrate on your academic work.

      Sabrina, Student, 7th Grade - California  10/03/2007


I study doing a lot of review.

      Nicolas, Student, 1993 - Chile  07/05/2007


If you are like me and get distracted easily, turn some music on quietly and study. Also, turning off your cell phone helps. But again, if you are like me and can't bear to turn it off, put it somewhere like under your pillow.

      Katherine, Student, Year 12 - New Zealand  06/25/2007


Try learning from your mistakes. Control yourself to become a good student for now and for the future.
