Mastering the art of studying is something that can take years of practice. There are very few of us who relish the thought of knuckling down to a couple of hours of serious grafting but it has to be done, and there are ways to ease the process while absorbing as much useful information as possible.

For some of us the ideal study environment is a peaceful corner of the library with no distractions besides the odd nip to the loo or trip to the cafe, while others thrive in a bustling, highly stimulated setting. Whatever type of learner you are or your personal studying preferences may be, there are some hard and fast go-to tips that will help you stay at the top of your game for the duration of your exams.
