Advice for Studying

I'm struggling to think of ways to study for the 3/4 exam. So far I've just been going over flashcards from my SACS and practice questions from the textbook and worksheets. Any advice on what to do to ensure I know all the content?

Heyy damytoui :D

Yeah I'm working on Legal studies right now too!! ive got my last SAC on monday :-[ you done your last one yet?
For me personally, I like to handwrite all the definitions I struggle with understanding the most - but that might not help everyone

Heres some more helpful things you could do:
- Go onto VCAA website and download some past exam papers and do those (the most successful legal students I know did SO many past papers, like 20 (crazy but must work!!)
- Download some atar notes notes (hahaha) written by previous students
- Learn and learn and learn how to respond to different types of questions, for example 'define', 'discuss', 'evaluate' etc etc
- Don't shy away from the big markers!! I do this...... but yeah I'm trying not to!! (can i get a stickkerrr?)
- Stick revision notes around your house (i thought this was stupid, but then i did it and it was really really GREAT!!)
- Looking up when your learning is apparently better (stick stuff on your ceiling maybe? i actually havent tried this)
- Also apparently looking at something 40 times is enough to stick it into your brain
- STUDY BUDDIES!!!! testing each other and asking each other questions is grrrreatt
- Apparently (again) having a little nap after revising something will help it stick in your brain

Anyway apart from that make sure you do plenty of excercise (hahhaa look at me i cant even SPELL the word :o) drink lots of water, and GOOD LUCK!! I'll be thinkin of ya (hug emoji)
