**First Advice**: As an experienced student and teacher, the first step that I recommend in improving your tests grades is to take the time to study a little bit EVERYDAY! The key to remembering facts or solving equations is to get the information from your short-term memory into your long-term memory. The most efficient way to do this is to review the material and do a few practice problems everyday for the first couple of days after you have learned it, then at least once a week until you are tested on it. Seeing and working with the material repeatedly will help store the information in your long-term memory where is stays for future use. Taking the time to do this will guarantee an improvement in your grades!
