Rather, you can make short notes to improve your memory skills. You can note down the important points, formula, and theorems in a separate notebook, which you can go through every day before sleeping. It will help you memorize the things for longer.

Make sure you give your brain enough time to relax, which is possible only by taking short breaks and following a regular sleep cycle.
