I prepare for an exam by studying everything I have learned and noted in class and if I have a question or do not understand something, I ask a classmate or teacher who understands in order to understand.

First I prepare myself in a place in complete silence, telling my relatives not to interrupt me. Then I make myself a snack. In my case I play music, but calm to be able to concentrate. At night before going to sleep I give it a review and go to sleep early. It is also important to give yourself breaks so as not to overexploit your mind.

I prepare for an exam by studying three days before and I make summaries of the subject with images and I also watch videos, that helps me memorize faster and understand you. One day before the exam I do a review with friends to help us and understand everything.

I make diagrams for a better analysis on the topics, and I carefully review each part. I like to study with friends and make each other random questions about the topics. Also, I make draws to memorize easily.

For an exam I usually clean and order my notes to know where I have everything, in the same way I usually study at least 2 days in advance, and I do not stop studying if not until it is time for the exam, and of course, I also rest between study times, otherwise it would be useless to try so hard.

For an exam the first thing I do is write down the topics that I know will come in the exam, then I start to make annotations of what is most important and I underline it in some color that stands out so that I see what is important, I also watch videos referring to the topics so that it is clearer to me and as I finish I ask some of my sisters for help to ask me and see that I do remember what I studied.

I prepare to study doing a guide, I add images to give me better support and learn better. At the end I ask a few questions, about the topics I did and I try to answer them alone.
See you!

Whenever I prepare for an exam I try to relax and put on some music or a relaxing video, most of the time I study from my notes, but when I don't understand a topic or lesson I study from the book or watch a video on the internet, in the end I almost always do a super fast review before the exam.

For exams I prepare by studying a few days before, I play music to concentrate, I make diagrams, notes and I like to repeat things out loud to understand them better. And it also helps me when I'm explaining to someone else.

I study one day before the exam and do a review. Sometimes I also give a last study minutes before the exam.

When I'm going to have an exam what I do is that several days ago I study a little the day before the exams I study again so I can reinforce what I have seen in class.

If I have resoruces like presentations or videos, I review them several times until I don't need them to tell all the topics to somebody else and that tells me that I am prepared.

Personally, I put on quiet music and read several times until it stays, but there are times when I write it and say it out loud, but dedicate a good time to it and remove all the distractions. My best technique is to read aloud, it always stays with me.

To prepare for an exam I read a lot of information related to the topic and I make some notes. I start my preparation in advance in order to be ready for my exam for 100%.

What I do for an exam is study from the day they left it, ask myself questions and put keywords to remember the subject.

I want to give some exams more study time than others, so find a balance that I feel comfortable with. I have some preparations for my exams, such as:
- I always organize my study space in a quiet room with all the necessary items so as not to interrupt the learning process.
- I turn off my phone notifications or blocking Facebook (temporarily) on my computer so I can concentrate on the homework tasks at hand.
- I use flow charts and diagrams to write down everything I already know about a topic - and then highlight where the gaps lie. Next, I study my material to accomplish the topic.
- I help my classmates to do their homework by explaining my answers to them. This tip also helps me memorize knowledge for longer.
- I usually organize study groups with friends before each of the exams. We discuss all contents related to the exam and practice on old ones.
- I always study for 1 hour. Then I have a break for five minutes. I like both eating some snacks and listening to my favorite song.
- Finally, remember that a little study every day is much better than a lot of studying all at once. So, I just take 2 hours for my self-study each day.
