As a current University student, I could not tell you the amount of times I had to cram information for a quiz or an exam the following day. This article cites some tips to help you take in and absorb information more efficiently.
- Stop Saying Words In Your Head
- Avoid Back Tracking
- Point at the Text
- Skim and Scan Intelligently
- Practice With Free Web Apps

This is interesting. I have personally never tried a 3rd party app. This might be useful. Has anyone actually used an app to study?
