1.They try not to study too much each time.
If you try to study too much each time, you will get tired and your study will not be very effective. Distribute the work you have to do in short periods. If you take short breaks, you can restore your mental energy.
They plan specific schedules for the study.
Study time is any time you do something related to school work. It may be completed assigned readings, working on an assignment or project, or studying for an exam. Schedule specific schedules throughout the week for your study time.

If you study at the same times each day, you will establish a routine that becomes a normal part of your life, such as eating or sleeping. When the scheduled study of the day arrives, you will be mentally prepared to start studying.

Goals help you stay focused and monitor your progress. Just sitting to study has little value. You should be very clear about what you want to achieve during your study hours.

Second, your friends can talk about things that can distract you from what you need to do. A simple idea – turn off your cell phone during your study hours.
They call another student when they have difficulty with an assignment.
This is a case where “two heads think better than one.”
