How to Ace That Test.
1. Review the hardest material right before bedtime. Going to sleep right away consolidates the information in your memory.
2. Turn off music, text messages, TV and email. Distractions make you less likely to remember material you were studying at the time.
3. Test yourself repeatedly. Students remember more when they force themselves to retrieve concepts than when they simply re-read textbook or their notes.
4. Eat oatmeal for breakfast. Balanced, slow-digesting diet provides a sustained flow of glucose to the brain.
