10 THINGS TO REMEMBER ON THE DAY OF YOUR EXAM

HOW TO STUDY FOR EXAMS 


  • Being successful in school requires a high level of study skills. Students must first learn these skills, practice them and develop effective study habits in order to be successful. Very often the study habits and practices developed and used in high school do not work for students in college or secondary schools.   


  • Studying one hour immediately after a class will do more good in developing an understanding of the material as several hours a few days later.  Studies show that as much as 75 % of material learned in class is forgotten within 24 hours if there is no review.



  • Good study habits include many different skills like: time management, self- discipline, concentration, memorization, organization, and effort.
