How to study for exams? When to study? Where to study? And lots of question is there. I know you searched it so many times to find out the answers of these questions.

Ø Do revision regularly.
Ø Set a timetable for studies.
Ø Do practice.
Ø Attain lectures regularly.
Ø Avoid procrastination.
Ø Do homework, assignments and tutorials.

But practically is it possible to manage time, to stay organized, punctual, and steadies in the social cacophonies? There are also other priorities which are equally important as that of study such as gym, entertainment, family, and friends. How it is possible to study in this kind of tight schedule and hence above mentioned tips seems to be impossible. As a student I know how it feels when your parents and teacher pushes you towards your books. But from one point of view they are right, because they are more experienced about life than us. Now a big question arises, How to do study along with other activities.
                 Here are some basic tips which may accelerate your study or studies habits and can resolve above question.

#01: Inspiration:
           According to the Oxford dictionary inspiration is the process of being mentally stimulated to do or feel something, especially to do something creative.” Inspiration is everywhere whether it is your street or backside your school. Inspiration is the key tool. You can read and watch inspiring stories and videos. Avoid taking small things lightly, because you may miss fathom of nature.

#02: Make good Friends:
         This is one of the most important point and just not only about study but also about life too. “Good friends are good teachers.” One another benefit is that they will keep you motivated, I know sound little funny, but I experienced it. Stay around smart and versatile people. Observe them, ask them and try to be present in present.

#03: Understanding:
     What understands? Technically “Understanding” means to know what is going on and what is going to be happen. You need to understand theories, laws, derivations and processes. I have seen most of the students tries to memorizing every word of the book, is it fair idea? We should keep in mind that our motto is building understanding and not memorizing.

#04: Do less secure more:
      What does it indicates? Do less means “Scientifically minimizing content of study.” and secure more means “Applying set of techniques into exams to get more marks.” So “Do less and secure” can be defined as “A process of analyzing study content and on basis of that building certain techniques to score effectively.” Let me explain, how to do this.
       Step 1: Know your syllabus (Chapters and their weightage.)
                Step 2: How many times each question is repeated.
                Step 3: Sort out important topics.
                Step 4: Know paper pattern. (Sequence of questions, instructions, and algorithms)
      Step 5: Go through previous question papers.     
      Step 6: Allot time for each question.
      Step 7: consult from teachers.
These are basic steps and may get vary according to your subject, field, and university. Remember, it is complex and can be executed well with the help of teachers and seniors. It is one of the deadliest weapon to crack exams.

#05 Use Map minds:
        If you are an engineering/medical student then you may have seen that how bulky and complex theories are there. How to digest these theories, laws and processes? One of the simple technique is to break them is the graphical and tabular form. 

Use colors and pencils to draw mind maps. Visual and graphical formats can be curbed easily as compare to black and white words (Ah! I just hate black and white books, colorful picture and texts are easy and cool to understand, aren't they?)  How to Make a Mind Map  This may help you. 

#06: Write effectively in exams:
         Last but not least, if you are not able to put your knowledge on the paper in a particular manner then you won’t be able to achieve your target. Writing is an art and science.
 Avoid over writing and always write to the point. Instead of writing paragraph, you should break it in points. Writing technique depends on what type of exam and subject you are giving. Time management and writing are correlated to each other. So keep in mind writing is dependent of knowledge, time and marks allotment.

                     These tips may help you to crack the exam and best method of study is that doesn't change your method of study, stick with it. Each and everybody have its own thinking angle and particular way to carry out the task. Please kindly let me know your ideas and suggestions to improve study methods. I need your valuable comments to implement it.
