Remember everything you learned this year--really!

 
Sick of spending all of September trying to remember everything you learned last semester? Soar to the top of the class on the very first day back by using your noggin and a smidge of time every day or two to work on your recall. Read on for our top three get-ahead tricks. Could good grades really be this easy? Answer: You bet!
 

Use it, don’t lose it

Don’t panic! We’re not asking you to spend your summer vacation going over practice problems. Toss those worksheets aside and enjoy yourself, sweetie—you deserve it! But when a puzzle comes your way, we want you to tackle it. A summer camper wants to know why it’s cooler by the lake than it is by the cabins? Dig deep into your science class smarts and whip out the answer. Your annoying little cousin wants to know how much pie he has left if he eats 2/3 of it? Give him a lesson in fractions. Figure out the tip on your fam’s restaurant bill. Look up words you don’t recognize from the newspaper or a beach read.
 

30-second flip

Instead of burning your books, push ‘em off to the side of your desk…for now. But when you have 30 seconds free, grab a notebook and read a couple of pages of notes, or figure out how to work that math problem. You’ll keep your skills sharp and be better able to pull facts to the front of your mind the next time they’re needed.
 

Get prepped

Two weeks before you’re set to go back to school—or two weeks before you’re heading to an academic camp or summer school—block out an afternoon for you and your books. Gather together all of your papers and your best notes (rewrite or type them if you need to) and create cheat sheets that you can use for reference. Since a lot of school subjects require knowledge you learned the year before for more advanced ideas, it helps to have a set of notes to give ya an easy-access foundation of information. Talk about cinchy!
