Here are the lessons I learned from my failed exams: my tips and must-haves for every cramming study session.
Cramming sessions tends to be exhausting. I mean, who would not be exhausted processing a week worth of lessons?
Enter highlighters. Cramming sessions are exhausting because we throw a bulk of information into our brains. To at least help our brain cells, it is better to break ideas into blocks.
Also, unless you need to memorize all those stuff, it might just be better if you just put all the important stuff in your head first. Then leave the rest. I mean, this is cramming. Unless you have an eidetic memory, you can’t possibly cram too much information.
Writing on sticky notes is an effective way to break complicated information into simple blocks. Sticky notes are also helpful for adding bits of quotes or mnemonics.
I am not a fan of writing in static notebooks. I mean, I want my notes to be flexible as possible. Learning is dynamic, so should my notes be. Luckily, clips are lifesavers. Paperclips help me rearrange my lessons in not-so-hassle ways. I can add another shits of examples or add a corrected version of previous exams to any of my compiled lessons.
Whenever I am in cramming mode, I often forget to set a timer for myself. So, I ended up exhausting myself more than necessary. Setting a timer allows my brain to rest and process all the information you tried so hard to cram. Moreover, studying for too long can cause back pains and other physical problems. It would not be nice sitting in an exam with a backache.

Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
