Study a little bit every day instead of cramming the night before.
Take about 20 minutes everyday to study new material you learned that day. That way you don't have to cram in everything you learned the night before a big test. You will do better on your tests and get more sleep because you wont be staying up all night to study.
Organize your information
Make flashcards! Use Quizlet! Organize your information so that your thoughts can be grouped together. it is easier to attain information when it is grouped together.
Use mnemonic devices
Use a rhyme, song, or other tactic to remember information.
Make visuals to remember information
Draw pictures, use photographs, look at charts to recognize information needed for a test.
Teach someone else what you have learned
go home. Find your mom, dad, sibling, friend, stranger, guy at pizza hut. Tell them what you learned and it will be easier for you to remember. You are basically explaining it to someone else so you can explain it to yourself later.
Spend extra time on information that is hard to understand
You don't understand part of a subject? Look it up and find more information in it. look up a Youtube video to explain it to you. Ask a friend who does understand the information to help you out.
It has been proven that sleep improves you memory. Try to get enough sleep every night so you can be ready to learn new information the next day.
