*Teach it-Find someone and explain it to them or discuss about it with someone. Nothing forces you to learn better.

*Burn off stress- party,mediate,socialize,whatever you need to do to relax.Being in a depressed state won't help your studies,so have fun and find balance.


*Use mnemonics (memory aids)-Re-arrange the information in a sequence that's meaningful to you.For example, if one wants to remember the notes of a treble clef in lines in music,remember the mnemonic Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge=E,G,B,D,F.
