CREATE AN APPROPRIATE STUDY ENVIRONMENT- You will need limited noise, a tidy surface, and comfortable furniture. Find a quiet place to study where you won't be bothered. This is very important and should be given great care in doing.
GET EVERYTHING YOU NEED BEFORE YOU SIT DOWN TO STUDY - Pencils, pens, notebooks, paper, textbooks, etc.
AVOID DISTRACTIONS - If you have family members that distract you, politely ask them to leave so you can continue with your assignments. Make sure the TV and radio are off. If you need background noise, classical music might be of interest.
DEVELOP A CALM ATTITUDE - Be calm and patient with yourself. Nobody learns anything right away.
MAKE SURE YOU GET ENOUGH SLEEP - Staying up late studying is not a good idea. Lack of sleep prevents you from concentrating and reduces your ability to remember what you have learned.
DEVELOP YOUR SCHEDULE - All students should keep a schedule of classes, assignments and other key dates. As part of that schedule, they should set aside specific time for studying and project work. That way, they're less likely to find themselves scrambling to complete a project at the last minute or cramming the night before a big test. The schedule should also set aside time for non-school activities like sports. In fact, the more comprehensive the schedule, the more efficient most students will be in completing their schoolwork.
DEVELOP A STUDY GROUP - This way you can quiz each other and learn things from each other.
TAKE REGULAR BREAKS - Go for a walk, ride your bike, or be with family. When you take frequent breaks, you find that you aren't boggled with the stress of homework and you can't wait to get back to your assignments later. Listen to music, it helps your brain to relax.
