READING & MEMORIZING
1.  Remember more with Mnemosyne, an online flashcard reading and memorizing site. Give it a try to see if you like it.  I used flashcards as a study tool.  With them I was able to learn massive amounts of data that otherwise would have conquered me.  One final exam in a literature class required students to know 100 poems, their titles, their authors, his dates, first lines of the poems, and what they were about.  Sounds like a lot of information, and in the abstract it is.  It takes time to write out 100 3 x 5 cards.  I did that.  Then I studied them, which takes a few more hours.  But it was worth it.  I aced the exam.
