Growing up, there were two things that I heard which can help me as I study/review for an exam in school.
The first thing is to eat peanuts. I know that peanuts are brain food, but I never ate peanuts while studying. Because I'll probably just eat and not study, haha! But my Dad did this during his time. And I remember seeing my brother eating some too while he was in Med school (though my brother really loves munching on peanuts!)
The second thing was sleeping on the book will help you learn! I have to admit, I did THIS! I probably did it as a desperate act, hahaha!
Since Ate won't eat peanuts, I just asked her to do the second one. Heehee . . .
