Effective note taking is a huge factor when it comes to uni. That and also reading and comprehending fully the subjects you are required to know beforehand. Preparing way ahead of time is the best method in tackling your exams, not the night or few days before. If you find that you're losing focus on the reading materials, then you need to re-examine your study habits and try to come up with better and more effective ones. 

With Multiple Choice tests, what its sole purpose is to see how well you know and understand your material. For most students, they like to take a guess and think that multiple choice tests are usually either B or C and very rarely A or D, etc.

Also, with multiple choice exams...if you truly do not know your info/material in the subject, you are then more likely to fail the test taking process. There's just not any way around it. If you take exams that are timed, then you need to skip over any questions you are unsure of and go back to them at a later time. Don't spend too much time on any one particular question. The thing about MC tests is that there's always a couple of answers that are similar (just worded differently) and it could either be one or the other...BUT in reality, it's not. There's only one 'right' answer. 

All I can say is change your study habits a little where it will help you remember more effectively the material you are required to know and not spend so much time on the materials which aren't necessary in knowing, for the exam. Sit next to someone who's a good note taker and ask for their advice and help if you don't understand something. That or ask the professor any questions you aren't sure of and I bet they'll be more than happy to assist you. That's their job and that's what they're paid for, so use the resources you have made available to you. 

Good luck. :)

Give more time

Understand along with cramming

Break stuff into short funny words from which you can know the first letter of the words in the series, it will help you remember.

Make flowcharts, block diagrams/trees of the stuff which interlinks.

And study....don't come here.

Nothing is missing don't think negative. what yoiu have studied is exectly the same which you had to do. Its good idea to write notes as its the best way for study. Every morning for 5 minutes close your eyes and think that you are  doing well with your study. Think I can do it.  When you get tired during study again close eyes for 5 minuts think possitive and open the eyes,  be on study. You will sure get success. Be brave. Thanks.

Associate the shapes with letters, numbers, and other things you are familiar with. Try staring at one part and repeating the name while staring at it 3 times. Then look up so you can't see the picture and repeat it 3 times over while picturing the figure in your mind. Do this until you are fairly familiar with the parts and then try it with a chart without the names to quiz yourself. Good luck. Sláinte, Meg

Everyone differs in their own of studying , some may understand the concept , some may just go through without understanding the concept .  my usual way of memorizing is first understanding the concept then memorizing each and every important points .  so what i tell is first understand the concept then memorize paragraph by paragraph . take notes on important points .  rewrite what you read without seeing and self evaluate yourself and see where you are doing mistakes . if needed refer online for further reference and for easy explanation .
