When I was studying I recorded everything, It was a great way to learn as when I was driving, making dinner or just having a bath, I just stuck the cassette in. I also stuck things to the back of my bed room door and before I would allow myself to leave the room I'd read it aloud (seemed to go in better), I also stuck notes in the fridge lol but it worked. Best of luck.

One thing to do is to write or highlight the material. Any type of kinesthetic movement will assist with memory. Also, try using mneumonic strategies. Where you take the first letter of words you are trying to remember and make a saying. Read it into a mini-cassette and then listen to the material before going to sleep or when walking to class, etc... Study with a partner and be sure that they are willing to really study. Use index cards for vocabulary and key terms then you can carry them with you to use in down time. These are a few ideas off the top of my head...Good Luck !
