    First drink lots of Coffee (to keep you awake) then get out some 3 by 5 cards (or 4 by 6) and make flash cards write a hint/question on one side and write the answer on the other side then make alot and then go through them! You read the question/hint and then answer it. Try to do stuff that's hard for you not easy stuff! lol! That's how I learn and memorize stuff! Hope it works for you!

    Make note cards. By the time that you finish making them, you already know some of it, so it really doesn't take too long and it is a great way to memorize stuff.

    Use the music silly girl, write a song that has the information in it. Use a melody you already know ( Like twinkle twinkle little star). Or put the information to a tune that the composer wrote.

    When you read you need to visualize what you are reading. Think of it as a story. It aslo would help to read a paragraph and briefly summarize what you just read in your own words. The point is to make you are paying attention to what you are reading. Actively read and not passively read.
