18 studying hacks that will boost your brainpower

Hand with marker and test

There are, of course, just the two certainties in life – death and taxes and all that – but if there’s a third, then it’s that, at some point, we’ll have to take exams.

So what’s the harm in a little nudge in the right direction? A little extra help? These aren’t cheats, these are just little tips to aid productivity (and there’s more of those here). Some are simple techniques to aid concentration (eat! sleep!), and some little tips on revision timetabling (based on tomatoes, of course), while others concentrate on getting your brain organised and receptive to both taking on the information you need from the questions, and organising the way you respond.

These are good tips, from the people at Magoosh, for school, university or professional examinations. We all have to do them. We may as well do them well.
