One of the best way to study is by taking a mock test on the given subject at hand.

Pretending like you’re in a test setting, with questions you’ve never seen before, can boost your confidence before taking the real exam. And there’s a simple way you can find a bunch of real tests on Google.

Simply type in “site:edu and then ‘your desired subject’ followed by exam”. For example, if you’re have a biology test coming up just google “site:edu biology exam”.

You’ll get a bunch of different exams that you can use to study from.


Got a pesky headache? Before you reach for the pill bottle, consider this nutty alternative—grab a handful of almonds!

These crunchy powerhouses are packed with magnesium, a mineral known to relax blood vessels and ease nerve excitability, which can contribute to headache relief.

Munching on 10-12 almonds provides a decent magnesium dose, potentially mitigating that head-thumping sensation and getting you back to feeling great without taking any drugs!.
