Many students have trouble studying for a quiz or a test, and there are many ways to improve your study habits to make sure you ace your exam. Here are 3 ways to improve your grades.

Reward Yourself With A Treat

Placing your favorite snack or treat on your textbook per paragraph or on your test review can motivate you to keep reading or it can help you to keep studying.

Take Regular Study Breaks

Taking breaks in between studying can improve your memory and it puts less stress on your brain. The routines that you get into for studying are really important. The best way to study is to focus for between 20 and 40 minutes, then take a 10 minute or 15 minute break where you do some kind of exercise to jog your memory. Any sort of walking or other type of quick exercise helps with your concentration when studying.

Use Scents or Gum to Jog Your Memory

         Using candles or any type of scent helps with your memory when studying for your test. Showering a new fragrance while you’re concentrating can help refresh your memory. When you splash it again just before an exam it can help you remember things you have studied for the test.
