The best way to study for a test is to begin early and vary where you study. Research shows that people retain different information when they are in different environments. The brain makes subtle associations between the material it is studying and the surrounding sights and sounds. For example, someone may make certain associations while sitting at the kitchen table that help them retain certain information, but other associations while sitting in the library. Varying the studying location is very helpful. Likewise, spaced out preparation allows the brain to retain much more than spending the same number of hours cramming right before the test. By allowing your brain time to forget something and relearn it, the information is reinforced. Repetition combined with quizzes force the brain to recall information making the information much more accessible in the future.
