  1. Routine Up – Scheduling and planning your study is very important. Make both short term and long term goals. But, be realistic. If you over-estimate your tasks and are unable to finish, you will end up de-motivated.
  2. Divide time to various subjects or topics, depending on your strengths and weaknesses. It is not necessary that every subject requires equal time.
  3. Decide a stretch for yourself followed by a mini-break. Taking breaks often helps you to be at your best while studying.
  4. Make revision notes, so that when you go over a topic, you do not have to get into the lengths of the textbook. With help of brief notes (flashcards, flowcharts), the concepts can be easily revised.
  5. Most-Productive Hour: Some people tend to be most productive late-night, others in the morning. Know what hours you are most-productive in and work on your hardest assignments during that period.
