During my college years. During break session I make it a habit to go to the library to answer all my homeworks and I go to a peacefull place wherein I can review the lessons for the day. So when exam comes it is just easy for me to study because I don't have to memorize all the chapters of how many days lesson but it will just be a review for everyday I study all the lessons.

for me this two is the most important when studying... be inspired and be happy on what you were doing, if you think your not smart then hard work and devotion to your lessons are good to do. gudluck

concentrate well on your studies and always read what you have discussed in your classes so as not to forget the lesson and retain it in your mind. read and study your lessons in advance. spend more time with your studies rather than going out with friends or others. aim at passing all your grades and excel! Good luck to your studies!

I used to be a student once upon a time ago. When I was 15 years old, I had to sit for a major examination which determines what course I would be taking for my college. I started to study 6 months before the actual examination comes. Every day I spend around 2 hours to read and revise my subjects. I paid particular attention to subjects which I was weak at. I did past year's questions and practiced doing it with a time set. I set the clock just like in an examination time. It was fun because the more sets of questions I do, the more I get to know my ability in answering the subject. I found out that I am not stupid. If we learn step by step, and take time in doing it, we can understand more easily. Never study in the last minute, unless you just want to take a huge risk and gamble for your future.

I think there is no good study habits or techniques.The only thing you should do is do the things you think is right.

One of the biggest problems I have with studying is procrastination. I always tell myself "I'll get this done after [insert mindless activity here]." DO IT IMMEDIATELY. Try and give yourself mini deadline for each hour of the day to make sure you're staying on track. Keep studying whenever you can if you need it. Try not to make a habit of staying up late, not getting enough rest wont make your grades any better. But most of all, if you don't understand the work, ask a teacher for help!
