What's your best study hack?

Before attending any class, I make it a point to preview the slides. This pre-reading allows me to have a better grasp of the material that will be discussed, preparing me to engage more deeply during the lecture. I also believe in the value of independent problem-solving. While it may be time-consuming, working through challenges on my own ensures that the concepts are etched into my memory.
