3. Reward yourself with a treat. There are many ways you can use a reward system into your habits, so you learn how to study for exams and tests more efficiently.

4. Drawing diagrams can help you to visualize information that can be hard to describe. This creates a memory in your mind that can help you on your tests. The test may even ask to draw a diagram or label. So, start practicing your drawing!

5. Always use flashcards for key points, key concepts, and vocabulary.

6. Listening to the right kind of music can help you with studying. The correct types of music can lead to more productive studying by elevating your mood. Classical music is the best choice for studying.
