Eat and Sleep Well

To learn effectively, you need a brain that's awake and ready to absorb new information. That can be hard to come by, however, if you haven't been sleeping and eating well. According to Harvard Health Publications, a lack of sleep can affect memory negatively. To give yourself a chance at doing your best, get restful nights and nutritious foods during these stressful times. Moreover, get a good night's sleep before your test, so your performance during the actual exam doesn't suffer.

Find the Right Place to Study

It can't be overstated how important it is that you remain focused while you're studying. After all, you won't be able to work on your knowledge and abilities if your mind is elsewhere. That's why it's essential that you find a study space in your home: somewhere you can avoid distractions (like noise, your cell phone or a TV), and where you'll have everything you need to study (e.g. enough light, a comfortable desk, and your school supplies).

Start Studying Early

For some reason, students often think that the best study method is to cram the night before an exam. But, as mentioned above, sleep deprivation isn't going to help you on your journey to learning math. To correct that, study days in advance. You should even you go over your notes every other day to ensure the information stays fresh in your mind. Plus, this way, you won't be pressed for time, and you'll be more likely to tackle the areas that are most challenging to you.

Enroll in Tutoring Classes

If you want to guarantee that you'll be ready to ace your math tests, enroll in tutoring classes. An experienced and dedicated tutor can guide you, solve any lingering questions you have about the subject, and provide the time and attention you need to learn as effectively as possible. Through one-to-one tutoring, you'll also find support, which can help you feel more confident in your ability to learn math and become a more successful student.

Check Your Notes

Your notes are your main study material since that's where you keep all of the information you went through in the classroom. They're there to help you, so check them when you're studying (as mentioned above, you should go through them on a regular basis). Furthermore, you should rework the problems in your notes. This will help you practice more and become more familiar with the concepts you should learn.

Use Mnemonic Devices

Learning math isn't just about knowing how to work out a problem: there are also definitions, concepts, formulas, and more information that you need to memorize. If you struggle with this, worry not, as you can employ mnemonic devices to facilitate the memorization. Something as simple as a rhyme, or a silly phrase related to what you need to memorize will make it more likely that said information will stay in your brain for when you need to use it.

Identify Your Problem Areas

It's almost always the case that there are areas in math that you struggle with. Perhaps you have a difficult time figuring which formula to use to solve a problem, or keeping up with all of the numbers you work with. Whatever the case may be, you should make an effort to find that problem area and work on getting better at it.

Practice, Practice, Practice

Practicing is absolutely necessary to learn math. How else will you develop a skill if you don't do it? That's why you should practice as much as you can: ask your teacher for extra assignments, rework the problems in your notes, search online for worksheets to complete, and even create a practice test. The more you practice, the better you'll get at it, so do it often!
