According to Cynthia Clumeck Muchnick, MA (2010), if you are preparing for only one exam and you have plenty of time to study, you can be flexible in your schedule. If you are studying for several exams in a brief time period, however, you need to create a strict schedule for yourself and devote certain hours each day to the study of specific subjects. To provide enough time to study, you should begin studying about five to seven days before the examination.
The environment around you is just an important is knowing the type of learner you are. The general theory that most children hear growing up is to “find a nice quiet place to study”. While this type of environment may work for some, it won’t for others. As with learning styles, different people find different environments more suitable to their needs. If you are the type of person that finds that “too much” silence is more distracting than a little background noise, then studying at a library is not for you. The opposite is also true.

According to Carmen Ramsey and Aly Witter (2010), some students prefer complete quiet, while others like soft background music or ambient noise.To create your ideal study environment, start by choosing an appropriate location to work. Once you’ve decided on a location, pick a spot that seems comfortable to you. Keep in mind that comfy places like beds and sofas might be more conducive to sleeping than studying, so don’t get too comfortable.
According to Shadiya Baqutayan (2009), exam stress is an unfortunate part of life for many in school. Students getting ready for exams often feel a lot of pressure, which can result in nervousness and anxiety.
According to Grace Fleming (2007), sometimes you just need some good old-fashioned vegging out in front of the TV or computer. Give yourself one 30-minute episode of your favorite show before getting back to more cerebral pursuits. There is no right time for everyone, because it’s not really a matter of how long you study, it’s how effectively you study that really matters.
According to Mark Pennington (2009), while some students like to get up early in the morning and study, most will say that late night studying is most productive. When it comes to brain power, students will say they perform better in the evening.
