I am a big fan of flash cards. Writing the information on the cards, and then studying the cards was very beneficial! While you are writing, you are taking in the information. The flashcards are also easy to carry around with you, so you can study wherever, whenever.

Depending on the instructor, they will split up the information and not expect you to know everything in a PowerPoint but from other classroom materials and things they say in a lecture.
Study in a quiet location and remove or turn off distractions. I usually find a study room in the library turn off my phone.
