This may not always be easy, but it is worth striving for. Cramming the night before an exam may work once in a while, but setting aside some time for study every day is usually a much more successful strategy. Keep in mind that our brains consolidate memories while we sleep, so getting a good night’s sleep before an exam can be very helpful. 3. Self-discipline. Try not to be discouraged by the amount of material you have to learn. Keep at it, and you will find that the more you learn, the easier it becomes to learn. At first you will be assembling a small foundation, and then you will build upon it. The more extensive your foundation, the more you can add to it. Wherever possible, make connections between new material and previous material. This will broaden your foundation. The more you practice making connections, the easier it becomes to see and learn new ones. 4. Know when to memorize and when to understand. Some material simply must be memorized, but other material requires true comprehension. For example, each bone in the body has a name, and you will have to memorize the name of each bone and its location in the body. Will this memorization serve a purpose? Indeed it will, for when you learn the actions of muscles, you will have to know the bones to which each muscle is attached. Memorization is often the foundation for comprehension. And if you have made a mental picture of the skeleton, so much the better, adding a visual dimension to learning.
