Once you’ve mastered your note taking skills, and created useful study tools, it’s time to move on to learning how to effectively study your materials in preparation for tests and exams. Learning these skills will aid in memory recall as well as improve the effectiveness of your study time. I’ll show you how to create a more focused study time which will in turn shorten the time it takes to study each day.

We’ll talk more about preparing for exams and dealing with test anxiety in the next video, but for today let’s focus on making the most of your study time. And hopefully freeing up some of your afternoons so you can have fun!
