Review in Board Exams
Again what I do is write a little story.
Another one is to try things on my friends.
And try it on myself first.
For example these things I'm writing about has worked for me. So I have so moral issue in telling that they do work.
Then sometimes if I remember and get the opportunity I practice on my friends. With or without their knowledge.
For example, Dale Carneggie's advice of "Be interested to be interesting."
If you pay attention, you will catch me being so interested in other people's stuff. I might even done it with you smile emoticon
