If you have a test coming up, remember that studying isn't simply breezing over your material lightly, and that it takes more than five minutes. An effective method of studying is to read over your material in full, whether you think you have to or not, and then ask a family member, preferably mom or dad, to ask you some questions based on the facts. Mom and dad are best because they are most likely to ask questions similar to those that the teacher will ask on the test. I find that this is an effective way to study, but remember: you can't study the night before the test and expect to do well, you should review material very lightly every night, and perhaps study longer within a week of the test.
