Well I'm having a problem in high school, and half my grades are slipping below the "A" belt, and one is on the borderline of a "C".   Tongue

I can't seem to really master the topics, and I want some tips on how to study. How do you guys study, prepare for tests, and overall do your best in classes. Have any tips in memorization?

Thank you  Wink

My study habits were always rotten, but one piece of advice I can give you is to get a good night's sleep. It helps the brain function all around. Also, I'd say studying for a short time every day is way better than a huge cram session the day before the exam. For anything other than straight name/date lists, I suggest you go for familiarization rather than memorization: turn it over in your brain, make bad puns about it, imagine setting it to music in a youtube video, whatever, until you know this stuff like your friends and not just like your friends' phone numbers. I find for both science concepts and artwork, knowing the back story really helps me remember what things are. (unfortunately, I ended up remembering art the same way I do people: "hey, I know you, you're ... uh ... whatsisface.")

When it comes to English class and other text-based stuff, I'd say ... practice. For every hour of required reading you do, read other stuff (fun stuff) for two hours. Doesn't matter what. Yeah, I know ... but the more you read, the faster and easier you'll read, and you'll learn grammar, punctuation and composition just through example. I know I never learned any language skills in high school english; it all came from the novels I devoured.
