  1. 1. Keep Your Memory Sharp for OET! Drop These Habits What’s the point of spending weeks or months on intensive review if you can’t remember what you learned during the OET exam?

  2. 2.  A night of inadequate sleep will slow down your mental processes, weaken your ability to filter information, and put a damper on your energy levels.  Several nights of inadequate sleep will drastically reduce your energy levels and interfere with your brain’s ability to sort and store information into your long-term memory.  Weeks of inadequate sleep will have you struggling to accomplish simple tasks, process information, and make rational decisions. So, get at least eight hours of sleep every day. Avoid attending your OET classes while you’re sleep- deprived to make the most out of the experience. 2.

Emphasis on the word “occasionally.” Research suggest that having a diet mostly based on fatty and sugary food has a lot of adverse effects on your brain, including poor or impaired memory. So, limit your consumption of these food types. 5. Drinking A night of heavy drinking often affects memory retention. Everyone knows that.
