How should I start my essay?
Start by prewriting. If you have a subject, brainstorm everything it is that you want to say about that subject. This will help you work your way to thesis statement (the main idea you want to convey about the subject).
Subject: Study Skills
I have a lot of things to remember for this test that's coming up. How do I break everything I have to know and not completely lose it?
I've always found it helpful to break it down. For instance, if you have a history test coming up, break the subject matter down according to person, place, and thing. This helps you understand not only the concepts but also the significance of these concepts.
I can't understand the reading. How do I go about it?
Break down each piece of the reading that the writer is presenting you. It also helps to have a dictionary with you. If there are words you don't understand, look them up as you read along.
