How to study for an important exam?

If you have a pair of good eyes you may see how 'hardworking' we are; preparing for an exam. This is my buddy, Praveen. He speaks very well in Tamil, and ofkos, English. His pointer is eleven times better than me. He is a busy man since he is the vice president of PKMI (dont ask me what is that) and a member of Jawatankuasa Mahasiswa Kolej for for Kolej Aminuddin Baki (I stayed there for a year and a half). I've been wondering for days and months; how on earth he managed to maintain his pointer-power-gila-nak-mampus even though he is busy with all that?
How many times a year does this word cross our minds and torture us? No matter how hard we want to try it, we cannot just ignore exams. No two people study the same way, and there is little doubt that what works for one person may not work for another. However, there are some general techniques that seem to produce good results. . In order to do well on exams, you also need to learn how to study. Unfortunately, universities don't necessarily prepare their students for this important skill. We have to always remember that learning how to study for an important exam takes practice. So I ask this macha which is a good friend of mine to share some tips on studying. 

"Yo macha, mind if you share with me your tips regarding studying for exams?"
"Oh well KeCiK, anything for you mate"
"Woi, I'm helping you man. I am damn straight"
Here are some tips on how to study successfully for an important exam;

"Kacang ma, lu study last minute. I know, you and I are both lazy. So why bother asking me about stupid tips on studying"
"Lu study, lu forget. Lu study, lu forget. What's the point? Tak guna. Lagi elok lu teman gua main PES. Besok nak exam baru kita work hard ok!" he added with a smile.
Good point. No two people study the same way, and there is little doubt that what works for one person may not work for another. The process of study skills depend on one thing, and that it is our willingness to improve and do well in school, university or whatever. If we really don't want to make the effort, no amount of ideas or outlines can help much. We are the one who is responsible for our own education, and effective study skills can help you.
Bak kata kawan gua "Pointer itu semua duniawi."

Sungguh betol! Namblas markah utk akak. Ekcelly tu la yg ramai kejar, sbb friends, lecturer and even parents pon akan tanya;

"Pointer brapa?"

Experience, skill ngan confidence tak ramai orang nampak and lambat orang nak detect.

Kan? kan?
