    Learn how your long term memory works.

    Here's just one example, but there are a lot of books and articles you can read (keep in mind, understanding is more important than memory, though).


    Browse different textbooks (and the internet, etc) and find the best explanations of everything out of all the books and then put them together, but also think about your own explanations and see if you can do better. Get help from professors.

    I get tired of repeating my same advice over and over, so this is somewhat abbreviated. (and this may mean I'll be away from physics forums again for a long time, at some point).
