The Five Day Study Plan Start Early: More than any other technique, the key to performing well on exams is starting early and using short, frequent study sessions. The human brain learns academic material faster and better on an exam if done in brief blocks of time spread out over longer periods of time, rather than in a few lengthy sessions. For example, you will perform better on an exam if you spend one hour studying each day for 20 days than if you spend 10 hours studying each day for two days before an exam. On Cramming: If you have to cram, try to focus on remembering the information you do know rather than trying to teach yourself new information. You will typically not remember what you tried to learn the night before the exam, anyway, so it is best to make sure you REALLY know some part of the information for the test. If you do have a few days, try to spread the studying out so you are not doing it all in one night. If you plan ahead, many students have found the Five Day Study Plan gets good results. Keys to the Five Day Plan: 1. You space out your learning over a period of 5 days.
