In order to avoid having to cram the night before that big exam, try to practice the following good study habits:

- Make sure to get a lot of rest- a rested body helps your mind focus and remember the facts you need
- Eat well- a balanced diet fortifies your body with the nutrients needed to keep you going when you’re working hard
