Chunk the information into like parts to make the notes easier to manage. 4. Before a test-study the last set of notes first! These are the "freshest" in your mind."

  Doha, Qatar

  Jake H.  
  Student, 9th grade  
  Stevenson Ranch, California  
  6/18/2012  
     
"My brain can only hold so much knowledge, so I try to maximize information by shortening what I'm studying. Try remembering key words that will trigger the rest of your thoughts later on. Also, comedy is hard to forget, so I like to twist words or facts so I can remember them like a joke and connect the words to real life. For example, to remember 'took a trip', I'll think of it as someone falling, because it's funnier and easier to remember than someone traveling."
     
  Kelsey Schachow  
  Student, 12th grade  
  Thedford, Canada  
  12/30/2012  
     
"Always make sure that you have a open mind about what you are studying. Put your head in what you are reading by only thinking of how you can go about a problem in a particular way. Take math for example. In math you need full concentration on what you are solving. I like studying at night. I always keep water near me. You should not study near the bed for you may be tempted to go to sleep."
     
  Dereck Johnson  
  Student, 12th grade  
  Kitwe, Zambia  
  10/15/2012  
     
"Make your own vocabulary flashcards. This will help you to remember the words and what they mean. Don't be lazy and use your friend's cards. This will prevent him from learning and the terms may not be correct. Do not print your flashcards online. You will remember better if you do the writing out."
     
  Craig C  
  Student, 7th Grade  
  Berwyn, Pennsylvania  
  4/28/2012  
     
"Always try to study using a table lamp. It helps to build a lot of concentration because your field of view is reduced to a table on which your book is placed."

  Student, 12  
  Rajasthan, India  
  12/30/2012

  Irfan Khan Roghani  
  Student, 1st Year  
  Peshawar, Pakistan  
  9/29/2012  
     
"Not sure if it is still practiced, but in my time the school library used to keep copies of old tests and exams. Looking at these provided insight as to what might be covered on the exam, and especially if samples of previous tests/exams by the teacher preparing this year's exam were available, the type of questions to expect and their scoring. If the library does not store these, you or others may have older siblings who have taken the exam you will be taking and have kept their tests."
     
  Erik Blums  
  Parent, 10th grader  
  Columbus, Ohio  
  7/1/2012

  12/13/2012  
     
"Even if your professor posts class notes on the Internet, still go to class and take your own notes. Then compare your notes with those of your professor and make any needed changes and corrections. You have to focus and think to take good notes in class. This will make the information more meaningful to you and easier to remember then if you skip class and just read the professor's notes. Also, you will learn from the interactions between students and professors in class."
     
  Staphanie Corwin  
  Student, College Grad  
  Muncie, Indiana  
  11/28/2012  
     
"I'm not sure why, but if I review some important information just before I go to sleep, I remember it in the morning. What I do is sit in bed for a few minutes before getting up and think about what I was trying to remember. I think it has something to do with the brain processing and storing the information."
     
  Henry Williamson  
  Student, 10th grader  
  Grand Junction, Colorado  
  11/1/2012  
     
"Studies are a major factor in your life. Keep in mind that you study for your life. Have a goal. Try hard to achieve your goal. During 5th-10th grade is an important time in your life. Don't waste that time and feel bad later for missing such a golden opportunity. Use it wisely and carefully. Study hard, have confidence and will power. You will surely achieve your goal. "

Frankly, after getting such a good reward, I became a bit oversmart and didn't give much effort to prepare for my the next exam. I earned third position in my class instead of my usual first position. So, even if you are at the top, you must keep working to stay there."

"When I'm studying for a test, I first read the notes and then summarize by writing them in a seperate notebook which will serve as a "reviewer notebook." So when I feel like studying again, I don't have to get all my notebooks needed for me to review. Instead, I just bring out my reviewer notebook and review them without hassle. "

"Your brain can only focus on one thing at a time. So when you're studying, that's what you have to focus on. You can't watch TV and do your reading at the same time. "

"The most important thing is to understand every single thing that you have to study. Understanding helps you connect with your studies. It also helps you to remember what you study for a much longer period. So, question anything you don't understand until you gain understanding."

"My criterion is that the best way to study is reviewing. Actually, the more reviewing the better the learning. Someone once said that "PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT." This is especially important for math. He who does the most practice wins the race."

"When I read a textbook I pay special attention to any information that is in bold or italics. It tells me that the writer thouhgt that that information was very important. My teacher will probably think it is too and it could end up on a test."

"Don't procrastinate and put off studying the hard stuff until the last minute, or you will regret it. Try and cover the hard sections first. For example, suppose you have to learn an irregular French verb and where to put the comma in English. If English is easier for you, don't spend an hour looking at it, especially if you already know it. Do an hour of French and then you can do English with whatever time you have left. "

"I used to find it hard to concentrate when I studied. My parents took me for an eye exam. The doctor told me that my vision was fine but that my eyes would become tired after a while. I got glasses to relax my eyes and they helped a lot."

"Our brain is much more powerful than we usually think. If anything can change you in your life that will be your brain. Have a book in hand instead of the TV remote after you come back to home from school. Only study can activate and drive your brain over a long journey. "
