1. Dedicate a space for studying that is free from distractions.
2. Read textbooks and all reading assignments. Take notes and highlight as you read. Consider reading out loud or to a study partner. Organize your textbook and lecture notes, as well as any maps, charts or handouts provided by the instructor.
3. Begin studying for exams early. Study in 50-minutes blocks and then take 10-minute breaks. Attend any test review sessions and review study guides. Form study groups and help each other prepare.
