Japanese students studying.

  • A set of neon highlighters can transform your boring gray textbook into a rainbow.  Academic reading has never been this colorful.
  • Writing notes after you read the assigned lesson helps you not only to read the material a second time, but also to digest and organize what you just learned in your head. 670px-take-notes-step-4-version-2
  • Having a study schedule can help you manage your time and maximize each hour.  Don’t forget to leave 15-minute periods for study breaks!  Studying nonstop without giving your brain a break is both exhausting and unproductive.weekly-study-schedule-template-pdf-format-download
  • Making memory aids with acronyms can do wonders when you have a big exam coming up. For example, K. I. S. S. “Keep It Short and Simple”, when giving class presentations or speeches. Or M. D. A. S. For long equations, remember to “Multiply, Divide, Add, Subtract” (in that order).


  • Have a checklist to keep track of the things you need to do each day. Nothing is more satisfying than ticking off those little boxes after a good day’s work.
