Review your class/lecture notes before bed - this is a great trick to strengthen your memory.
Sorry procrastinators - cramming the night does not work! You truly need to learn to study in advance.
Remove all distractions, which includes your phone! Also, your laptop, if it is not necessary for studying the material.
Fine-tune which study tools best suit your style. This could be making note cards, repeating key points aloud, creating discussion groups with other classmates, etc.
Wake up earlier, and make checklists. Getting up with time to make use of the day, and a checklist / plan-of-action will help organize your study time better.
Repetition - as boring as it might seem, repeating your notes verbally or with a pen/paper many times over many days will help you know it like the back of your hand.
Sit in the front row of your class. It will force your attention to always be on the lecturer.
Study with serious students. Study groups that become gossip sessions are not helpful, so be careful who you choose!
Be bold enough to raise your hand in class. Not only will it ring in participation points, but it will truly help test your knowledge.
It never helps to ask for extra credit!
If needed, retake any classes where you may have made a below passing grade.
