#1) Don’t try to do all your studying the night before the test. Instead space out your studying, review class materials at least several times a week, focusing on one topic at a time.
#2) Start out by studying the most important information.
#3) Find a comfortable and quiet place to study with good lighting and little distractions (try avoiding your own bed; it is very tempting to just lie down and take a nap).
#4) Learn the general concepts first, don’t worry about learning the details until you have learned the main ideas.
#5) Space out your studying, you’ll learn more by studying a little every day instead of waiting to cram at the last minute. By studying every day, the material will stay in your long-term memory but if you try to study at the last moment, the material will only reside in your short-term memory that you’ll easily forget.
#6) Listening to relaxing music such as classical or jazz on a low volume can relieve some of the boredom of studying.
#7) Take notes and write down a summary of the important ideas as you read through your study material.
