ASK TEACHERS FOR HELP: Though staying after school for tutoring can be a drag, if your confused getting some one-on-one time with your teacher can be an easy way to understand your tougher classes.

STUDY WITH FRIENDS: Rereading notes and study guides aren’t always the best way to memorize a load of information. Working with friend can increase both retention and your motivation to learn; you’ll be less likely to get sidetracked.
