8 Ways to Study Better:
1.) You can prevent yourself from forgetting up to 80% of the material by reviewing a lecture or study content within 24 hours.
2.) Instead of re-reading information again and again, close your eyes and recite as much as possible from memory. This can cement long-term memorization.
3.) If available, take practice tests. One study showed that students retained 50% more of the material if they testing themselves after learning something.
4.) Become more efficient when studying with flashcards by using the Leitner System. Repeat flashcards that you have difficulty with more often than those you’ve memorized.
5.) Listening to classical music while studying may activate the parts of your brain that can help you pay attention and make predictions. It can also improve your mood.
6.) Consider exercising before your next study session. It may help make your mind more alert, and give you the endurance you need to study for several hours.
7.) Instead of trying to memorize information, make connections between the material’s ideas. This may help you remember more material in less time.
8.) When you study, focus on only studying. Multitasking can handicap learning as your attention is split between each task.

Tips on Getting Started
I haven’t seen many of these on any blog sites, so I decided to make my own post about this subject and what helps me get started on things I need to do.
 
1.    Start off tiny. If you need your bedroom clean, start by picking up a piece of crumpled paper off of the floor. If you need to read a book, just read a paragraph or even two sentences.
2.    Promise yourself x minutes to do this. Time has a way with us, especially the time-conscious ones like myself. If you don’t give yourself a guideline to when you should stop, you’ll feel discouraged to start because you’ll never know when it will end. If you give yourself fifteen minutes (or even five)—not a daunting amount of time—to, say, study, it will look more appealing to you. But remember: Do nothing but that. You can’t do anything else. Sometimes you’ll even go further than that fifteen minutes because, by then, your mind will be locked into that task. Don’t promise yourself you will get locked down, but promise that it’ll only last a short while.
3.    Take your time. With whatever it is, make sure you do it right. You don’t want to quickly read three pages of your textbook only to find out you haven’t absorbed anything at all. Sure, you can say you studied for 5 hours, but was it really studying?
4.    Don’t argue with yourself. You know what you should be doing, so why come up with a shit ton of excuses to not do it? We can go on about how capitalist society sucks and how tired we all are. At the end of the day, is it going to get done? With that attitude, I don’t think so.
