1. Take enough time to study
Set a study schedule that fits your learning
style and don’t leave anything until the last minute. Although some students
may seem to be studying at the last minute, this method of studying often is
not the best approach to prepare exams. Write down how many exams you have, how
many pages you need to study, and what days you have left. Then, organize your
study habits accordingly.

spread your textbooks and notes. Ensuring that the room is bright enough and
that your chair is adequately rested are also considerations. Focus on
information that could distract you and remove them from your study space. Make
sure that you feel comfortable and focused in your study space. For some
people, this can mean complete silence, and for others, listening to music
helps. Some of us need a full order of attention and others prefer to learn in
a more confusing environment. Make sure your study space is friendly

taking the exam.
