    Study a few hours daily. Studying daily keeps your brain cells active. After studying a few pages try writing a summary of what you read without peeping into the book.

Tips

  • Color code subjects. Assign each of your classes/courses/modules with a color. e.g math yellow, English purple, etc. Make sure notebooks, highlighting and even writing (if you want) are color co-ordinated to the chosen color of that subject. This will make remembering certain subjects easier and will allow you to grab needed books quickly in between class changes, etc.
  • Be organized for each task so you don't waste time!
