How to pass tests

Avoid just reading revision notes over and over again - it has limited impact

Explain your revision topic to a friend or family member

Ask yourself questions on what you've revised

Ask friends and family to question you

Summarise the main points of an issue on flashcards or a jotter. Whip these out in spare moments, such as while waiting at a bus stop

Stagger it - better to do a subject for one hour a day for four days rather than four hours in one day

Draw up a daily timetable with a total number of hours and a set time for each subject

Don't kid yourself you can learn effectively with one eye on the TV

Playing Mozart and taking fish oil tablets are very unlikely to help

Make up a rhyme to help remember information, such as In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue

Copy advertisers and radio stations by reciting key numbers in a sing song voice

Hypnosis is also valuable for calmness during a test, and for improved recall.

Can hypnosis give you the incentive to get a job ?

Perhaps Giron could be hypnotized to be kind to fellow KF members.:)

In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue
This may well be true, I'd go so far as to suggest that in 1491 and 1490, to name a couple of others, he did that, too!
