Ensure when learning something new that
- you have a description of what you are learning
- you write down what you learn
- for clarification, you tell someone what you learn (this way the information will stick) .
After a period of exercise. Take a break, do some physical exercise then start studying again.
Have drinks and food on hand.
Study in a library or quiet room and try to keep as focused as possible towards your goal.
When studying it is better to use graphs and pictures.
Creating mental images and reasoning out possible answers is easier in a quiet place.
