Depends on what I'm studying. If it's quantitative (math/physics/cs etc.), I spend around 10-20% of my time reading the textbook, taking curt notes and outlining key concepts. Then I spend the remaining 80-90% solving problems and asking/googling any questions that arise. During this time, my brain subconsciously makes connections between different patterns and I start to build intuition as to why the concepts are true and what their implications are

For other classes, just read and memorize — writing helps too

Practice quizzes that are available at the end of the chapters, test bank, or straight up ask your professor for old versions of his test. Will shoot you down sometimes but probably at least point you in the right direction for similar materials.

I wake up, go for a run, take a shot of fresh ginger juice, put on some lofi and get to it. I read then do practice problems. For practice problems, I give it my best go, then look up the best way to do it. I then go to a different source for the same type of question and try to do it myself. Rinse and repeat until I can do it no assistance.
