Studying in a quiet terrain increases your attention and helps you assimilate the material you study. 

 

 EAT A GOOD DIET AND NOT JUNKS

This helps you assimilate rather than eat junk. 

 

CHECK THROUGH THE READING MATERIALS FOR KEYWORDS BEFORE STUDYING

 

 Before you begin reading or studying material, check through the textbook or your class note for keywords. Keywords are words that appear in a textbook or written class notes constantly. Scanning for keywords would help you understand the material or your class note when you begin reading it duly. In the case where you don’t understand the keywords clearly on the information handed in the book, make use of the wordbook, dictionary, or the internet to check its meaning. Understanding keywords help you to digest the material and retain the information since you're familiar with the essential words in the book.
