Study Books are great if you learn by writing things down, or reading it. Even if you don’t learn this way, they are fantastic for reference later on.
In my Study Books, I write down facts, equations, etc. It is my way of separating the main points, ideas and concepts that we are taught from exercises and activities. I find it a really good way of organising my notes – do big folders, just a few books.
In a quiet place, where you won’t be distracted. Basically, be in a room with no TV, games, computers (unless being used for study!). It is also a good idea to avoid listening to your iPod or Mp3 Player because these can lower your focus... Sorry!
You should study at a table or desk, sitting properly on a chair. This helps your posture and will be better for writing, etc.
