Studying before the examination is a skill if mastered can be of help for one to get higher score compared to those who have not mastered the said skill.
In my readings, I have encountered two articles published in the internet on useful tips on how to study for exams and successfully taking it. (This also applies to those who will be taking entrance examinations in various colleges here and abroad)
Eight useful tips are given by http://www.wikihow.com/. Here are the following:
Rewriting is the first the website suggests. It says that when you rewrite something, especially for kinesthetic learners, you think about what you are writing. Most importantly, it says, it refreshes your memory.
The online article discourages students to study when they are really tired. It even suggests that a two hour schedule a day is better than lumping all in one day which remind me of my friend's term, "pulling an all-nighter".
The website strongly discourages cramming as it has no use and will only aggravate the situation. This will just make you forget everything as you are trying to store as many information which is not anymore possible.
There are subjects that you only need to read, some to be analyzed and others to come out with solutions and thinking between the lines. Know your subjects well and know how to do them.
Surrounding is also a very important aspect to consider as it will set your mood. Avoid as many distractions as possible or if you can't avoid it, live with it
