And I was asking some friends for studying advice, and I tried Googling some stuff and I thought 'Hey! This might be an interesting topic!'
So, what are some studying tricks you have or know of that help you stay focused, or remember something better?
In the past I've tried associating phases or words with an equation. Like SOH-CAH-TOA becomes 'soccer' for me, and then it's easy to just go from there to 'soccahtoa!'
My teacher tried teaching it to me by remembering 'some old hags can't always hide their old age' but that was too long >.<
I've also used that thing where you make up a phrase and the first letter of each word is the first letter of the thing you're supposed to remember, like with remembering the order of the planets, or the levels of classifications for animals!
So that's two techniques that have proved helpful for me to remember some stuff. How about for the rest of you? I'm sure you all have a little trick or a tip to share c:

That way, every time you, for example, go grab a drink, you can read a couple of notes on the fridge door. Worked for me at least. Depends on the subject though I guess.

Although repetition helps a lot, if you're learning in a way that you have difficulty with will make you learn much slower.
Eggs and fish in general are good for the brain.
The human brain usually remembers the beginning and the end of a long session, taking a few minutes every 15 minutes or so to rest and reflect on what you've studied will help a lot.
Lack of blood flowing to the brain won't help, if you get fatigued you can try some breathing exercises to help your brain acquire more oxygen (moving around or stretching every so often helps as well).

For example math, you should just practice by solving different difficulties yourself without seeing the answer on a draft and then check the answer and see how have you solved the problem. It's the best and most effective way I've learnt through my student era.
For memorising lessons what you should do is reading the lines over and over to keep that in mind and memorise that.
And don't forget take a good rest and eat well to have energy for studying. A tired brain is useless.
