I found this from 'Chapman study skills'. Might be useful for those who are sitting for the coming exam like me..hehhee..till now pun belum start lagi. How la this..
CREATING A STUDY ENVIRONMENT
1. Find a place to study and keep it for study only.
2. Gather together all materials needed for studying
3. Control noise level and the visual environment to acceptable levels.
4. Avoid relaxing while working, create a work atmosphere. When you take a break, leave your
study place, then come back to work.
WHEN TO STUDY
1. Determine your "up" times. You may be a "morning person" or an "evening person."
Hehhehe..me an afternoon person time.
2. Study when there are the fewest competing activities in progress.
3. Study is most effective when adequate rest periods are provided.
4. Stop studying when fatigue or lack of attention occurs.
HOW TO STUDY
1. When distractions are present, "tune them out," become intensely focused on your project.
2. Keep a pad of paper handy and jot down extraneous thoughts that cross your mind while
studying, get them out of your mind and onto paper.
3. Set study goals before you begin each period of study (number of pages, number of problems
4. Give yourself adequate rewards after specific goals are attained.
5. Break up the monotony of study by changing the order of the subjects you study.
6. Make the most of rest period do something quite different.
7. Don’t try to mix work and play.
8. Start with short study periods and slowly build to longer periods only as fast as you maintain
9. If necessary, make a calender of events to clear your mind of distractions.
10. Realize that you won’t lose friends, respect, or a "good time" just because of your studying.
11. Plan the length of your study period by the amount of material you decided to cover, not by
the clock (Often the clock can be a serious distraction.)
