To avoid this situation, we should consider studying as an auditive reading that adds to our information and to our intellectual and general culture, what is going on around us. Besides it is very important to have a good sleep before the exam, in order to relax and to give the brain a chance to review all the information. Staying up late and using all kinds of alarm clocks increase the student's anxiety and mental and psychological disturbances.
