  • Always revise the work done in the class and get your difficulties solved.
  • If memory work is assigned, learn it overnight and repeat it in the morning.
  • At the end of the week, revise all that you learned during the week.
  • Make a daily 'home time table' for yourself. In this way you will learn to be a student of regular habits, one of the most valuable assets in later life. Stick deliberately to sufficient study hours, every day minimum 4 hours. If for unavoidable reasons, they are not completed, supplement them as soon as possible.
  • It is preferable to have a chair and desk intended for your studies, in the comparatively quite and well lighted room of your house.
  • Realize the value of time. Do not wait till the exam approaches.
