Why Your Good Study Habits Are Wrong

4. Don't Cram for Tests

Don’t wait until the night before to study for that big exam. When you have to remember information, it's best to go over it a bunch of times for a few days. That way, you have a chance to really learn it. If you cram, chances are you won't get as good a grade on your test. And you'll forget almost everything you memorized right after your exam.

The key is to figure out what works for you when it's time to study. You may be surprised! Talk with your parents and come up with the best place, time, and way to get your homework done. That way, you won't have to be worried or stressed about it.
