Multiple Choice Exams...They're all about the details
Your short-term memory does not store details very effectively. Learning a little bit each day and allowing plenty of time for repeated reviews will help you build up a much more reliable long-term memory. Carry flashcards around with you and learn a few new terms each day. Remember!!! Do not simply memorize the book's definitions. Many times your professors will re-write things in their own words and unless you really know what the definitions and terms mean, this may cause you problems on test day.
