This is in response to Krades' How to Get a Passing Grade. He made great points in studying. I have to say I did all of what he pointed out in his blog and I tell you it works.
Studying does not have to be a chore. Don't think of it as a negative thing. Remember that the words you tell to yourself are the most powerful words. If you say negative things, then that will surely happen. If you say positive things, then that will surely happen. So why not be positive about studying? You'll lose nothing. You'll gain a lot more.
One thing I would like to add to his article is that try to study with groups, with friends or with a study buddy. Have someone question you and you question him back. Take note also that repetition helps a lot when studying.
Study. Learn. Achieve.
