No student wants this to happen to him or her few days to exams, right?
This article will help you with some creative ways you can study without reading a book.

2. Record and listen to your lectures
Like music, it is easier to assimilate and recall a recorded lecture you have listened to several times than reading the text.
To do this, you’ll need to get lecture capture application that can help you record the lectures while you make jottings of the most important points. Such apps as Sound Note, Note Plus and the Voice Recorder on your phone can do this for you.
3. Explain what you learn to someone else
