A few extra tips:

Make sure to take breaks when studying. If you study too hard for a long period of time you can burn out.

 

Eat a healthy snack to feed your brain.

 

Try not to cram everything in the night before.

 

Always talk to someone if you need help.

 

Sleep. Make sure to get a good night’s rest after all that studying. Approximately six to eight hours helps your brain’s function.
