Highlight your book, use flashcards use bright colors for the flash cards, make time to study, have someone quiz you
There are primarily two things you can do to better study.One is to create flashcards for every class possible. Second, have a scheduled time weekly that you study.After fifteen minutes of studying take a break or get a little treat, then continue the same process.
That would depend upon what type of learning style you fall under. If you are a very visual person, I would suggest taking as many notes as possible and even drawing diagrams or pictures when you can. Auditory learners learn when they hear things, so you will need to invest in a digital recorder to record all class lectures, along with plenty of notes that you can read out loud to yourself, make sure they are written in the way you understand how the professor is explaining things. Kin-esthetic learners learn by actually doing things as they are hands on learners.
Pre read the chapter and make note cards on all of the vocabulary and words that are in Bold print. Answer all of the questions in the chapter, after each section and at the end. If you do this and attend class you will not have to cram for tests. Most teachers use the tests that have been created by the textbook publisher. The test questions come from the new vocabulary, bold and italic text and questions at the end of the chapter.
Studying is different for everyone. In college I had to record my classes because I needed to listen to the lecture a couple of times to retain the information needed. Depending on your niche- i.e. you're great at math and it doesn't take you long to figure things out- you may simply use the following techniques that I have used before.
Key to studying is finding out if you are able to study with noise in the background. Many people can study with music going on in the background because it grabs the individuals focus.
Some people need total silence, therefore they go to the library or find a place where no one will find them- secret place (classroom).
Highlighting or using post-its have helped a multitude of people. Looking for key words or sometimes I have found that the oddest lines are on tests.
Engaging in taking online practice exams or practice questions are also another way of studying. During my Finance class in grad school, I had to rely on the practice questions for the chapter to help me to better understand how to do the problems.
In undergrad, I used to go to tutors and there were other people who either had the same question or different one and once the tutor explained it, I was able to proceed and this helped me to better study for the test.
