STEP ONE: BE READY
Sounds obvious. But vital!
Remove all the distractions – sharpen your pencils, straighten up the piles of paper – and make sure that you have everything you need to make notes. Gather whatever study aids and books you will use and get them in order.
Make sure you have your backlog of units. This is your master to do list of everything you need to study to be exam ready. Break your topics and subjects into tasks that should last for about 45-50 minutes.
