6. ORGANIZE YOURSELF

After you create your study schedule, collect all the materials you’ll need to study such as study guides, previous tests, and assignments, textbooks and class notes to be thorough.

7. EXPLAIN IT OUT LOUD

Try to use your own words to help you assess if you understand the subject completely.

8. TAKE SHORT BREAKS

Avoid studying for long periods of time without a break. The brain can only process a limited amount of information at a time.

9. TURN IT UP

Music can help you focus, so put on those headphones and start shuffling. Make sure to pick stimulating and calming music instead of top charters for this one.
