The amazing thing about studying is that in no other endeavor would you try to improve your abilities like they do their academics. You'd never think of getting better at tennis by watching others play tennis, or just hitting that passing shot one time, or claiming you hit can hit the shot when your friend actually did. No, you'd hold the racquet and you'd hit that shot over and over and...until it was you who could and will hit that shot when the time comes. But, no one reminds us that to learn we must practice after we get to the point of being able to do until the answering or understanding is natural, obvious, fast, and part of how our mind processes information. So, study like you are training. Study like this guy trains. At just double nickel, he can dunk!
